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!

Better Late than Never....Reid is 1 Month Old!!!

You have been such a blessing to us, and you are the sweetest little boy- when you want to be, or not gassed up.  Your daddy and I think that you are very strong- you can hold your head up for periods of a time now, and can somewhat push and scoot around when you get good and mad... sorry you inherited my short temper, and your daddy's temper. You have mommy's eye color, and your daddy's eye shape, with a blend of both my hair and your daddy's- a dark red/brown. Colic has not been a good thing to you- you are constantly gassed up- and can break wind and run a grown man out of the room- just ask your daddy. You are also a blankie boy- you LOVE your fuzzy blankets. As far as eating goes- you have mastered nursing, and are quite the boob man.. you smile and get excited when it's time to eat. We have now switched your pacifiers, after I said over and over again, that I would not give you one, starting with the soothe kind, and upgrading to the nuk- your sister's old ones. You would be happy to know that I did find a yellow and green one, along with the pink and white one for you to use, so you don't have to look girly all of the time. You have been sleeping pretty good after 12:30 at night, but will not beat your sister on sleeping through the night- she did it at 5 wks. Baths are your favorite thing right now- you love relaxing in one with mommy, until I wash your head, then you get really mad. You are such a ham, but when you want something, and you don't get it as quick as you would like, you turn beat red, and throw a big fit- you're welcome... that's all mommy. Hayleigh adores you until you cry and scream, then she tells us to turn you off, but loves to be little mother to you, and keeps your swing playing music and the mobile moving for you. She will also give you your pacifier when you cry and help throw away diapers when she wants to. You are HER Broder, so she says. Christmas is coming soon, and we got to take you to see Santa for the first time. You did just fine with the big guy. My hopes for this next month: your colic slows down, and disappears, I catch your first smile and hopefully it's when your daddy is home, and I hope to continue nursing you without problems- I'm surprised we've made it this far. We love you so much Reid!
Love, Mommy & Daddy...ohh and Sister Hayleigh
