The Announcement!

It was so much fun announcing our Greenie Baby to you on Wednesday!  We received hundreds of comments on Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, and emails about our big news!  Josh and I really enjoyed going though them all and it made our anniversary even more special.  We are so fortunate to have all the prayers, support and encouragement from you all!

We had a lot of fun telling my parents and grandparents a few weeks ago too.  I’ve got it all on video, so I can share it with you…  Enjoy!

My favorite quote from this video is my Mom saying… “I love shoes!”

My favorite quote from this video is my Grandpa saying… “By George!”

Stay tuned for more Greenie Baby updates!

  2. Lauren,

    I have just been reduced to tears watching your parents reaction. Your Mother is precious and your Father is a true gem. His response is priceless and the way he studies the photo is so sweet :) And your grandparents, can I adopt them for my own? The are full of cuteness!

    We have not told our parents yet...I know, seems strange to tell all our BLM friends and not the parents, but I guess you all are my comfort zone in these early days.

    Thank you for sharing this with me, as it means the world :) The little Pumpkin and the Greenie Baby are due just 13 days apart. I look forward to our journey.

    And your Mother rubbing your belly and saying "there's a baby in there", more tears.

    Love to you,
    xxx

    I have been reading your blog for a while now, don't remember how I found you. But, honestly, I had a thought in the back of my mind that you would be announcing this miracle any day! :) I just now checked, and I know it sounds strange to say to someone I've never met, but I am SO HAPPY for you. What a miracle! And your new Greenie Baby has some very special guardian angels watching over and standing guard! :) Congratulations and God Bless you!!!!

    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.
