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!

13 years, and a lot of living later....

13 years is a long time... that is how long Allen and I have now been together. We've had our ups and downs, but we do have a lot to show for it all. In those 13 years, we have a great marriage going on 9 years this November- day after I'm due with Reid, and same day as Thanksgiving this year. We also have 1 extra sassy 2 year old little girl- one of the best things that has come from us, and a baby boy on the way- one of the other best things that has come from us- just because 2 people fell in love 13 years ago. We've got to travel and experience many things along the way that have helped shaped who we have become today.

 I look back at us 13 years ago, and we had no clue what we were both getting into. I can honestly say that I just knew Allen was the person I belonged to, and he belonged to me. 13 years later, here we are living in Colorado, toys are everywhere, and we've been enjoying all of the kicks and rolls from Reid. I never imagined that we would end up like this- one girl, and one boy, what we would ever name them, or what they would look like. What scares me is that we are almost 30 years old now- holding 29 after February... How has time flown by so fast?? Yet, I wouldn't change a thing! If things would have went differently, who knows what kids we would have ended up with, or where we would be today. I'm just glad I can say that the past 13 years have been the best years of my life. It's kind of like my life began back 13 years ago today to me- what happened before that was a very distant memory.

Today, we celebrated by going to my doctor's appointment. I was not too happy about gaining 4lbs in the past 2 weeks- Thanks Little Debbie, Hostess, and Oreos! But, today is a good day! I have Allen and Hayleigh with me, and Reid is kicking up a storm. The appointment went very well- my midwife was very happy with everything, and said traveling back to Illinois looked like a safe thing for me to do now. We talked about appointments to come, and when she would be off of work in the future. Reid was very healthy, squirming around, and had a heartbeat rate in the 130s.

Tonight, we are having a Seafood dinner here at home, completing it with watching Varsity Blues- the first movie Allen and I watched together, and he sneaked his arm around me.
