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!

Slumber Sunday- 25 wk Reid Belly Pics

Okay, I am aware I look ehhh. My hair is fuzzy and thick, I'm half asleep in the pictures, my face is a little puffy, my hips are ugghh, and my shorts are too big. But, I am mainly belly for the most part. Allen took these pictures right before we left the house to take him to the airport.

 Ohh! Notice my pink sandals. Those are the greatest sandals I have EVER owned. I wear them everywhere, and with everything. My back, and legs do not ever hurt when I'm wearing these, compared to my other sandals. They are North Face sandals with a rubber like sole on them, and they are absolutely FABULOUS!!!! The blue shirt I'm wearing, I got from Target, and LOVE it. In fact, I want to go back and pick up about 5 more of it, in different colors. It is soo comfy, and is not weird shaped. I can wear it after Reid comes- no elastic sides like most maternity shirts have, but it has the room in the belly. The shorts came from Target too. When I picked them up, I was a little leery picking up ones that fit me really good now, then having to go get more, so I got the looser fitting pair- and they are still loose. My favorite shorts so far, are my khaki Motherhood Maternity shorts. They actually fit me well, and are not baggy, like these Liz Lang shorts are. I have jeans saved up for when it cools off, if I even get to wear them- I'm kind of starting to wonder about that now. 

I just hope that when this is all over, I can actually get rid of my maternity clothes. They are very special to me- just like Hayleigh's baby clothes. I am aware that this is our last baby, and I will not be pregnant again, but some of the shirts and pants are just sentimental to me. I'm thinking that I might use the fabric from some of my favorites, that I have pictures of me in for belly pictures, and use them to make a blanket for the kids. Just a pieced block quilt kind of thing. I was so excited the first time I got to actually go and buy maternity clothes, it will be really hard to say goodbye to them, especially when I think back and can tell Hayleigh and Reid what I was wearing when I went in to have them at the hospital, what I was wearing in the maternity pictures, and what I had on when we found out that they were a boy and a girl. I still have the pregnancy tests saved in the boxes in the cedar chest here, along with what is left of my fertility drug kits- I couldn't get rid of any of those kind of things. They are a very big part of our lives- they were the start of our kids being here. I know, I'm sappy. I even saved Hayleigh's umbilical cord clamp from the hospital- and no, I did not save her stump. Silly, but we waited a really LONG time for all of this, and I'm not going to just toss it all away, like it meant nothing to me to begin with. I have so much more to go over, so I'll probably be working on blog post the rest of today, going over what we did this last week, and a few other things I'm working on right now as well.
