About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

12 Weeks today!

Quick-y post as Ava's "on the move" as I type...

Today I find myself 12 weeks along with baby number TWO and feeling really good so far.  (Whenever I don't feel so good, I figure I can't complain, because it's not all the time, like some women get... ok, most women)

I went to my awesome midwife this morning after waking up late with an astoundingly sound asleep baby and mild panic that I'd missed said appointment... but I hadn't... it was in an hour... and takes a half hour to get there... PLENTY of time to bathe both me and baby (seperately) and get us presentably ready before rushing out.

I was 5 min late.

Anyhow, Ava & I headed in and I realized how much more at peace I was with this pregnancy knowing that I was in such good hands.  I really LOVE Louise!  She's THE best!

Seems everything's great, blood pressure, bloodwork, lab work, etc... and then came the heartbeat.

Ava sat on my chest and looked down as we listened to the strong steady bumpa bump of her new little brother or sister.  *sigh* what a relief.  It's nice when you dont' always "feel" really pregnant, to know that everything's ok.

Say a little prayer that all continues to go well and this pregnancy is even better than the last one with a healthy little cherub at the end!  Thanks everyone!

  1. So cool!! lol

    The only good thing about having the struggle of juggling Ava as tiny as she is, is that you will still be in the rhythm of the baby thing when the new baby arrives... it will be much more of a smooth transition than the first :)

    Oh, just saw your comment and don't worry. You really aren't missing anything with not seeing Disney. It makes me a little sad that we spent that much time planning, saving, etc and they really just wanted to play in the pool and go on the rides.

    I mean a trip to a hotel and six flags would have been closer, cheaper and just as fun! lol

    Enjoy the pregnancy :) thoughts and prayers are headed your way!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
