My Father's Passing



This picture was taken the day we brought Maddie home from the hospital, she was a day old. My Dad was so excited to see her and kept saying she was "so pretty, so pretty." My Dad always loved babies and he really loved holding Maddie and kissing on her. This is one of my favorite pictures and memories of him.

My Dad passed away on May 20th, he was 73 years old. I am grateful to have so many memories of him that make me laugh out loud. He always had something to say !!! You are missed Dad, and we will always love you !!!

(Give everyone you love a hug today, just for me !!)

Strawberries on Mother's Day

















My Rowdy Mom's group told us about this great Strawberry Farm, so we drove out on Mother's Day. We had so much fun. Maddison had a pony ride and a hay ride to go pick strawberries !! She was in heaven and the strawberries were so yummy.

Baby Girl in 3D





I hope you can see these o.k. These were taken today. She is so cute !! That is her little hand under her chin. Maddison was there with me and it was so sweet to hear her talk to "her baby" as she was seeing her move. We may have had a breakthrough on the naming of this baby, today she decided that "lollypop" was better than "minty" !!! That is progress.

Today was amazing, I could actually see this little baby taking breaths (gulps) of fluid, and as I was watching her I could not get over how much she looks like Maddie !!

Happy Mother's Day !!

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing Mom's that we know. We hope you remember on this special day how important the role of a Mother is. Being a mother is an "all the time" job of full of many ups and downs. Thank you to all the wonderful Mom's that have sacrificed so much of themselves to raise amazing children. And a special thank you to the Mom's that have touched our lives and taught us how to be better parents !! We were always listening and learning. Thank you to our Mom's who sacrificed to raise Jason and I both, you did an excellent job and we would not be the people we are today without you !!!! We wish you an amazing day and we hope you know how much you are loved !!!

Spring flowers make me smile

After days and days of rain, the sun came out today and the flowers in our yard were amazing.
Maddie and I had the worst night ever. She was crying for her Daddy all night and was in terrible pain from an ear infection that I thought was gone. After trying every trick I knew and getting frustrated at not being able to make my daughter feel better, I finally just held her tight and let her cry, then she fell asleep from exhaustion at 4:30 in the morning. A trip to the pediatrician today proved it is a bad infection so we are on our 2nd round of antibiotics !!!
She just wanted her Daddy and it broke my heart. So sad to hear her cry for him. This 2 weeks of him being gone has been very hard, but he comes home Saturday night and I know she will not let him out of her sight !!! WE MISS YOU DADDY, COME HOME TO YOUR GIRLS......

Belly is growing !!













The picture in pink was taken at 11 weeks at the park, the sports bra photo is at 19 weeks. Baby is growing as is my belly. I am going to try to stay in better shape this time. Hopefully it will make labor easier and I can bounce back faster.

Hug your babies for me !!!!


Today Maddison and I walked 5 miles for the March of Dimes, march for babies. It was so great to be part of something so big. So many people have had their lives take drastic turns when their babies are born with health problems and some of them do not make it. I just hope that all of you with healthy beautiful children give them an extra kiss and hug for me today. We take it for granted when our babies are born so perfect and healthy.
