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!

Losing craziness, just to go looking for it....

I thought I had better get on here, since Allen will be heading home tomorrow night, and I've been growing ever so anxious for him to hurry up and get here.

The colic problem has been solved- no soda for me, and further more- no McD's either. I had a filet-o-fish meal yesterday and I have never smelled or heard farts so bad and rank come from something so small! Okay...maybe Missy dog, but still....OMG!!

We are doing really well now- the end of the week finally calmed down, and got less crazy- so I had to make it even more crazy... I took us all shopping yesterday. We spent 4 whole hours away from the house.. 4 hours!! We went to the lovely post office that I completely despise. Since I needed Christmas stamps for my cards, this was a must, because I refuse to pay shipping for stamps to be delivered to me- I think it's ridiculous- but I might do it next time, because I hate our local post office even more. Got 10 cards sent off, and waiting on my other order of cards to come on Monday now. We left there, gassed up the truck, and headed to town..err the other town- Grand Junction.

Since it was already noon, we went through the drive thru at McD's and got us some lunch to eat in the parking lot- it was crazy in McD's and the mall was even worse. I ended up having to feed Reid while we were out there too- he's going through a growth spurt I found out from the not even 2 hour gap between feedings. I decided that it would be a better idea to go into Target to get the few things we needed, instead of Walmart... yeah, I don't think it would have made much of a difference now. I left that place after 2 hours, wanting to run people over with my cart. Seriously!! Everyone was in there shopping for toys. I noticed that Target had more toys than walmart this year to choose from. Well, I was stupid, and decided to take my big train of a cart down through the toy aisles...(I got the one with the special seating for Hayleigh, so we had room in the cart basket) Kids were running loose everywhere, adults were acting crazy, and I managed to find stuff to get. I picked up an easel for Hayleigh for her bigger gift from us, and my niece something I hadn't planned on- a complete baby doll accessory kit- high chair, pack n play, diaper bag, and car seat. I found it, and thought it would be perfect for her, since we got her a baby doll, just like one Hayleigh has named Sally. I think she's going to have a hoot when she gets it. We got Reid some more pants- mainly soft comfy ones to go with his creepers I made him. We also got a letter bath set for both Reid and Hayleigh, a new Mickey Mouse movie for Hayleigh- Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas too. We made it through the wrapping paper aisle, and managed to pick up 3 more rolls, then we headed over to the lights. I needed 2 strands of 50 to go on my tree toparies in the front of the house, and 200 to go on the tree in Reid's room. Well, I left with 400 twinkle lights- 2 sets for tree in Reid's room, 2 sets for our big tree for next year, 2 packs of 50 lights for the small trees. We hit the cards, but I will have to hit Hallmark this week as well too. We managed to make it out of Target, then headed to the City Market to get some of our grocery shopping done, while we were already out. I got plenty of stuff to fix for when Allen gets here. I managed to get a cart with the car under neath it, and Hayleigh was honking and greeting people everywhere we went. I still have to go back to City Market next week too- go figure! I have to get some gift cards, and with the purchase of gift cards there, we earn 4x the points on the money value towards our rewards account that we get a discount on gas with.

We made it home finally, both kids zonked out, so I went to work on getting Christmas lights up and gifts wrapped. We finished the evening off with watching Christmas movies, and eating left overs, with me completely worn out.
