About Me

Western North Dakota , United States
My husband, Allen, and I are high school sweet hearts. We started dating Sep.99'- I kind of followed Allen home one day, and never did leave, is Allen's story. November 02' we were engaged, and on November 22,2003 - we were married. Having been married for 6 years in 2009, marked the 5th year we had been trying to start our family. With the referral of a Fertility Specialist from a friend, our IUI attempts ended up being a complete success despite my doubts. We welcomed our sweet little girl, Hayleigh into the world on June 30,2010 at 6:28am after 37wks and 1 day of gestation. She weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 in long. We found out that we were Baby #2 on April Fool's Day- a complete surprise! Reid Allen was born 11/13/12 3:24am 9lbs 8.2oz 21", after 38wks 5 days. Our 3rd baby, Eva Jane, was born on April 19, 2015 after suffering a pregnancy loss June of 2014. We are currently anxiously awaiting baby #4 due 2 days before Eva's birthday, so we are having Irish Twins! Our family is so blessed and happy to be growing!

2010 Looking Back

Well, for the most part, 2010 has been quite the year. We have had quite a few highs and lows, and I thought I would share our highs for the year after reading another bloggers and thought it was a great idea to do.

Highs for 2010:  (in order of events)
1. Started off with finally being pregnant.
2. First feeling Hayleigh kick for the first time on my Birthday.
3. For the first time in my life, enjoying the "fat look"
4. shopping for clothes..maternity clothes- much more fun than the regular.
5. Growing closer with my whole family- some major ties were made
6. Enjoying Mother's and Father's Days this year.
7. Made the nursery of my dreams a reality.
8. Enjoying the Baby shower of my dreams
9. Having Hayleigh- holding her in my arms and knowing we were finally a family.
10. Watching Allen beam and glow as a Dad
11. Showing our little baby girl off to everyone, and being the most proud I have ever been in my whole life.
12.Bringing Hayleigh home- house has never been the same since
13. Seeing Hayleigh's Smile and Hearing her Giggle
14. Trick or Treating
15. Allen doing great in Sporting Clays- made lots of connections and moved up from "D" class to "A"
16. Celebrating our 7 year Wedding Anniversary- I wish I would have known just how lucky 7 years would be! And Celebrating being together for 10 years too!  
17. Thanksgiving
18. Buying our baby Christmas presents
19. Seeing Santa Claus
20. Celebrating Christmas as a family of 3

As you can see our highs have for the most part been Hayleigh. I would really hate to see what our year would have been like if she was not here- probably be a very sad one to say the least. I can tell you that this last year has made me more grateful than I ever could have thought I could be. Just the privliage of becoming a Mom, has made this year one of the best years of my life.
