About Me

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!

Wordless Wednesday.. 25wks and Sleeping Beauty

Hayleigh refused to go to bed last night- she wanted to stay and cuddle with Allen 

Zonked out from a long day~

Last night, Hayleigh did not want to go to bed, she wanted to stay in the living room with us..I mean Allen and snuggle. As much as I wanted to make her go to her own room to sleep, I just didn't have the heart to take her away from her Daddy. So, after she fell asleep, I carried her to her bed- I usually don't like to do that because it is getting hard for me to lay her down in her bed from holding her, and I don't want her to lose her ability to fall asleep on her own in her own bed too. 

Today, is 25 weeks. I laugh when I see the baby ticker pop up and say I have 15 more weeks left... They wish! I'm guessing somewhere around 12 1/2 weeks.... Allen and I talked about this yesterday on the drive into town. I informed him that I will not be having this baby on my due date, or any time after that. He laughed and told me I don't have much say in that whole deal... well, you know what that did to me. I informed him that I KNOW Reid will be a big baby, just like Hayleigh was... he is already measuring 1 1/2 wks ahead, and Hayleigh was almost 8lbs at 37 wks 2 days.... I will not be having a 10 lb bowling ball of a kid. Anyway, I have a whole mess of tricks up my sleeves on ways of getting this guy to come out- preferably the week Allen is home in October, after trick or treating... that Friday, or Saturday is what I'm hoping for. As long as Reid keeps measuring and showing he is big and developed, I'm going to try everything I can to have him when Allen is already home, and before he hits over 9lbs. After the week of Halloween, Allen won't be home until my due date- which like I had previously stated, that is not happening...lol. I am so stubborn, but I am not a miracle worker, and 10lbs of baby is not coming out of me down there~
