baby shower update

Due to strict doctor's orders to be on bed rest, I've decided to postpone the Green Bean Baby Shower.  I'm thinking that we may do a Welcome Home Shower soon after I deliver, but I will definitely let you all know once the plans for that have been made.  It will probably be at our new house too!  We look forward to having a big celebration once the babies are born big and healthy!


  1. I had to do the same thing girl. We're going to have an end of RSV season celebration!

  2. Hey Lauren,

    So sorry to hear about all your complications, and your loss. I think you are right about your personal angel. We have two looking over us. We will keep you in our prayers and will be sending something after the babies are born. Take Care, Jessica

  3. Lauren...I am so sorry about baby A, but I am glad that the other ones are doing well. You are right..Baby A knew what she was doing! She wanted the others to thrive. Always remember her as a hero!Let me know if you need anything!

    I will continue to pray!

  4. We will all pull together and get everything in order after the shower. We are fantastic painters so you guys pick the paint for the new house and we'll do the dirty work while you focus on your little ones!

    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.
