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!

Easter and Catching up...

We had quite a time celebrating Hayleigh's first Easter last weekend. I have enjoyed reaping the benefits of having a kid now and the sharing of Easter baskets. I always have and always will get an Easter basket from my mom...but, now, Hayleigh does as well which equals more candy for me! Last year, I was approaching my glucose testing and Hayleigh was measuring big, so I was told I could not have my favorite Easter candy- PEEPS! I was rationed peeps, and I HATED it! My sister was sneaking them across the room to me, from her basket. I was caught, but, savored every bite. This year, I have hoarded them I think mainly due to the rationing of them from last year. The chocolate dipped ones were great, but I didn't really care for the whole chocolate ones.

Hayleigh has been growing way too fast! She got her second tooth over Easter weekend. Both are bottom ones of course. I just started purchasing her birthday decor tonight. I started to give myself heartburn while our internet was down from all of the rain worrying about not having that much done yet. Just as soon as we got internet back up and running, I was on the lookout for what was on my list of things we needed. Now, for my list of things to get done outside for the party- ugghhh. Anyway, here are some pictures from the weekend and just random ones after that.
