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!

Tidbits from our week

For once, this first week of Allen being gone has went by pretty fast- I'm hoping since we will be busy this coming week, it will fly by too! Let's see... this week... I developed a nasty tooth ache- ended up taking all I could of it, and got into the dentist on Friday morning, bright and early. While waiting at the dentist, I got a call from a local number here in Grand Junction, that I did not recognize, so I called it back just as soon as we got back out to the truck. After finally figuring out who it was, ended up being my OB's office, they told me that my midwife had tried to call, and it was regarding my blood test results. (I had opted out of the second trimester screening) Anyway, Anita- my midwife ended up being in the middle of an appointment with someone, and the person I was talking to could not tell me anything, so she took my number and told me Anita would be calling me right back. Well.... an hour and a half later of freaking out, and getting a prescription filled at Walgreens, a nurse finally called me back. I had been going through every bad case scenario in my mind meanwhile. I knew I had nothing to worry about with Allen doing something to make something show up on the test, but I knew there are other things out there to worry about- hypochondriac coming out in me... I have done nothing but lose weight this whole pregnancy, so I was freaking out that maybe I had cancer, or something, I have also had dizzy spells, and had one getting soo anxious in walgreens- I sit down and was okay. Anyway, back to the nurse calling me back. Turns out after all of the worry, I have a bladder infection- didn't have a clue. No symptoms, or anything. So, now I am jacked up on penicillin and amoxicillin- and my tooth ache is gone. I just have to go back this week to have them check everything out, and see what exactly is wrong with my teeth. ughhh!

Hayleigh has been helping me clean out our garage, and get boxes put up that need to stay out there for storage. We ended up finding a box of her clothes that has been missing for the past month, a lot of junk that was supposed to be thrown away, that got loaded up with our stuff on the moving truck, and a box of my maternity clothes, that are now in the new washing machine we got earlier this week, courtesy of our landlords. I'm trying to get it all done before Allen gets home, and figure out how to get the fridge out there and deep freeze plugged in- when we have 1 outlet, and they are 6ft apart. Extension cords I guess! Here in a few months, if I am successful with being a dairy cow, we will need that freezer and fridge space! Not to mention after our first trip to Sam's club for stocking up on meat.

Hayleigh and I tried out the pool here in our town we live in, and it was a WOW experience. They have a very nice community rec center, as I had mentioned in a previous blog post. We had a great time, and will be spending the next two weeks there in the Wee Wet Wigglers Swimming Lesson program for kids 6mo- 3yrs old. I am looking forward to taking Hayleigh, but not looking forward to getting up early for us, for the next 2 weeks. The following Wednesday- we will have to miss the swim lessons for the baby gender appointment. - SOO excited for that! I am planning on dragging Allen to the two swim lessons we will be going to the week he is off, maybe even make him get in the pool with her, instead of me suiting up in my tent bathing suit.

Ohh, what else??? Hayleigh never does cease to amaze me with what she comes up with to say to me. As far as her understanding me more, I am really loving that part. I can tell her to throw something in the trash for me, and she prances the whole way, and does it, I praise her, and she hams it up. She tells me she doesn't like a tv show that I am watching, and just different things, she tells me her opinion when she has one. Just like yesterday, I put new batteries in her Violet dog, and Violet was a brand new toy again, and she does not want me to play with or even touch her Violet.
