Baby Turns 2!!!


Where oh where did the time go??? I can’t believe Gus is 2 already. I went back and reread from his birth to the 1st week of his NICU stay. I can’t even believe we went through all of that. I feels like forever ago.

Due Date


Well today is the day my baby should have been turning one. (Or a few days after with my history 😉 ) Instead my wonderful lil’ guy came to us 6 weeks early! He’s such a sweetie and so very strong. Life with him is amazing ❤

He gets into EVERYTHING!!!!

My Only Daughter is Six!!!


Where has the time gone??? My baby girl is 6 years old! I can clearly remember the day she was born. It was a crazy moment. Her heart rate was dropping fast. The room was filled with lots of doctors and nurses (more than the norm) Hubby was a nervous wreck. All I wanted was to get that baby OUT!! She was my first drug free delivery. 2-3 quick pushes later she was safely out. She was (and still is) perfect!! My heart grew. I had my girl. I was thrilled!!!

Happy 6th Birthday Busy Bee!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

This will certainly be a birthday I will never forget! My mom came by for a surprise visit this morning with a bunch of balloons 😀 It was a very nice visit! I also had 2 of my nurses come in and sing happy birthday to me.

I had a sonogram today. My AFI was 7 and the BPP was 8/8. They estimated the baby now weighs 4 lbs. 6 oz.
