2009 will be a life changing year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

We had a nice time at Mike and Allison's house this year for New Years. Last year we did the same thing, but none of us were pregnant. Now, The Pernecky's have a 3 month old, Kelly is 9 months pregnant, and then there me... So needless to say, it was much more low-key than the years past!

I still can't get over the fact that Josh and I will become parents to 4 babies this year! It's hard to believe, scary, and exciting! I look forward to getting all my pregnancies over with in one shot versus being pregnant 7 separate times (like Josh wants... HA!). I just keep praying every day that these babies will all be healthy and strong, and that I can make it to my 34th week!

Also this year, Josh and I will be buying our second house together! This will be a much needed move, since the house we live in now only has one available 10x10 bedroom. That is just not going to cut it for 4 babies, 4 cribs, and all their stuff! The new house will have plenty of room for everyone, and a guest suite for that friend or family member out there that wants to become our nanny! :) Wink, wink! The location of the house is better too, so Josh's commute to work will be about 20 min shorter. We will also be less than a mile away from some prime shopping! I still don't know how closing on the new house in May (the same month I'll be giving birth) will work out, but Josh assures me that he's got it under control.

As you can see, this year will be life changing for us. We have A LOT going on, but even MORE to be thankful for!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
