Personal Update: My kiddos

FG9A4881.jpg

  img_8788I have not even posted a blog about my kiddos. Mercy, things here have obviously taken a back seat.

Here are my little nuggets. He is our surprise baby. I like to call him my "simmer" baby... as I'm convinced it was our essential oil blend Simmer (hormonal blend) that even made him possible.

img_8818So now I've known it.

What infertility is like, before having Sadie and being diagnosed with PCOS.

What the NICU is like, having Sadie at 25 weeks and spending 3 months in the hospital.

img_8784img_8804Now, what a surprise miracle baby is like... you know, that baby you could 'never have on your own'...

Thankfully I had an incredible doctor that monitored me very closely. It was a great pregnancy other than the normal, nausea... aches and pains... severe leg cramps... sleepless nights... swelling...

It was beautiful being able to bring him home right away, and to experience all the things I didn't recognize I missed with Sadie Mae.

She is the best most caring big sister ever, such a huge help. I was once worried about such the age difference, but now I'm relieved. How you people do it with lots of little littles at the same time is beyond me.

Here's an image of them this summer on the gulf coast at Panama City... and a few of my maternity taken by my sister-in-law, Julie Smith.img_9234 fg9a4881fg9a4891 fg9a5226 fg9a5228

Camp Greenville Pretty Place Wedding

What a gloriously clear blue sky wedding day! When you pay to book that view, you really hope you get to see it.

Believe me, I know... my wedding nothing but rain at that same spot years ago.

By far one of my favorite venues in the area.

Beautiful people. Beautiful view. Beautiful love.

Congrats TJ and Jenn!

Chattooga Belle Farm Wedding

"Everything happens for a reason." In loss love can be found, again.

The memories of this day shared with all those difficult days before, makes this story that much sweeter.

Nothing more beautiful than the support system of military families, how they rally for one another, support one another... this wedding was witness of that...

Congrats Mike and Jana! 000000000001002003004005006007008009010011012013014015016017018019020021022023024025026027028029030031032033034035036037038039040000
