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!

Flash Back Monday

I just got this picture of Allen and I emailed to me this morning, and was pretty amused. This was taken back in May of 2005. 7 whole years ago. All I can say is wow!!! I look so young, and so does Allen. Well, after all we were only 22 years old back then. Man, do I sound old! 22 years old young?? To me now, it is, since from this year on, I will be holding 29 years old. Amazing how a person looks before kids huh? I would love to get back to this size again after Reid gets here- hopefully within a year, fingers crossed! Anyway, this was the second year we had been trying, being married for 3 years, and decided to take a break from it all. I think it was a combination of people asking when we were going to have kids, and others chiming in hurtful things that were not meant to be hurtful..." I don't think they know how" I know it didn't bother me then as much as it would have a few more years later, but it is crazy at what people say when they don't think you are having kids quick enough after you get married. I personally am glad that our kids didn't come until later. We got to accomplish a lot, see the country, and do a little bit more of growing up along the way too.
