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.

Baby Bump!

Went to my midwife yesterday with my girls and got to hear the new baby's heartbeat!  Ava was so excited to hear her new brother or sister.  She's delighted that mommy has a "new baby in her belly!!!"  I always tell her it's because she's been such a great sister to La-la that Jesus decided to give her another baby!  She had come with Clara and my mom to my 1st ultrasound a couple of weeks ago.  We had an early one to double check how far along I was and see if there was more than one baby.  Turns out I'm nearly a week ahead of what I thought (I'm ok with knocking a week off of pregnancy).  Oh... and only ONE baby this time (God knows best).  I haven't gained any weight yet (actually I've lost a bit, but I think that's because Clara would nurse 24hours a day if she could and my body's under high demand).  Amazing I have LOST weight but still gained THIS BUMP at only 12 1/2 weeks!  Well... I've learned from the last two pregnancies that my body is the type that gets all excited and can't hold a secret.  I look pregnant almost immediately but it balances out towards the end.  Shaun hugged me on my birthday and said happily "Your belly's getting bigger!"  I smiled and said, "That was exactly what I wanted to hear on my birthday".  He meant it in a good way though.  He loves the way I look preggo (thank GOD!)


Oh... and can I just tell you how God provides (He SO does)?  I was thinking a while ago that I haven't' been out of maternity clothes pretty much since Ava and how mine were getting a little "worn" but I couldn't really see splurging on any new clothes when there were other things that we need first.  So Our Lady must've gone to Jesus and said something like, "Son, can we get her some new clothes?  She's trying to do your will ...and I think she could use some"  Then I received a message from a friend who said a friend of hers (who doesn't know me) was getting rid of her maternity clothes and did I want to go through them?  I said yes (half expecting nothing to fit.  At 5'11" and pregnant it's hard to fit me)  But you know what?  They DO!  And they're super cute! And in great condition!  I'm all excited!  Thank you God!  So nice that someone up there is into the details.
