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!

Sleepless and Coloring Eggs with Kool-aide

It is now 1:13am. I cannot sleep! Allen is due to fly in tonight!!! I cannot wait for that one. It has been a looooonngg 2 week hitch this time too. We are still juggling our stuff, and still in limbo, but have a game plan. You know I'm all about having a set plan. I don't like not knowing or having an idea in my head of what to do, or what is going on. I know... I'm kind of a control freak. I worry a lot- probably too much about random stuff.

Take tonight... I swear when I went to put Reid into his 3-6 month sleeper, it had shrunk! How has it happened that 3-6 months is getting snug on our little..well not so little man??!! So, like anyone would do, I started to freak out about him not having hardly any sleepers now. Boom! I was on ebay, the online yard sale site on facebook, gap, old navy, gymboree, JC Penny, Kohls, Children's Place- comparison shopping. I ended up ordering from Old Navy and Kohl's. Kohl's had a few better deals, but Old Navy's stuff was more what I wanted for Reid to wear. I also ended up getting Hayleigh a dress on Kohl's website too and a few pjs for her too- she's growing like a weed! I'm planning on using the dress for 4th of July- and have a plan for some cute accessories for it that we already have. I also bought and bid on a few things off of ebay. I got a new pj Old Navy set for Hayleigh for $5 with shipping, bought a sweater for Hayleigh that is a Gap, and a Gap swim top with a hood for Reid. Both kids will end up having way too many clothes- but at least they will have plenty of clothes to get them through to winter.

Like I said up above, we have a plan, and I cannot discuss that just quite yet. I know that it will be hard, and if anyone wants to tag in, go right on ahead.

We colored Easter eggs today with Kool-aide. The eggs actually did turn out more vibrant.

Anyway, I had a nice evening sitting with Hayleigh watching tv, and shopping. Hearing her go "that's cute!" makes it all that much more fun.

Here are some photos from the weekend:
