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!

Leaving and Letting Go

Today, we celebrated Hayleigh's 3rd birthday a month and a half early. We had a great time, and I wish that Allen could have been here with us. I put a lot of work into today- I could have really went wild and did more, but then it would be all up to me to get it all cleaned up with some help from others after being worn out, and that's why I cut the slack back on it all. Everything turned out pretty much how I had pictured it. I wish I would have gotten more pictures, but I think that is the way I feel every time. I really wish I had a clone for those times, and I could snap pictures and take care of the behind the scenes things- but alias... I cannot clone myself.

Allen couldn't make it today from having to go to Colorado to tie up loose strings for us, so he couldn't make it. We missed him terribly, and cannot wait to see him in 2 more weeks! We already have his flight booked for him to fly back in on Memorial Day- Monday the 27th. I have mixed feelings on our leaving. While I will be happy to be back in Colorado, I will miss our family and friends in Illinois. Our time back in Illinois has helped give me closure on living in Colorado. While we are not close to our family and friends out there, it makes our time when we are back here in Illinois, all that more special. People that care about us make time for us, and make that extra effort for us. It has also shown me exactly who to let go out of our lives as well at the same time.

This was probably the last year we have the big party back in Illinois. I am hoping we can make some new friends when we move back out again this time- not to replace our friends here in Illinois, but to help enrich our lives out there. Hayleigh will be in tumbling and swimming this summer, and will hopefully make some new friends of her own out there.

While I was disappointed not to see a few people today, I know it is not the end of the world, and some I will see again very soon, and plan on keeping in touch with, while some of the others, I'm afraid it's time to let go of.
