A Week of Random Pics

This week, I took at least 1 picture from my iPhone everyday to document my week.  They are pretty random, but here it goes…

mondayI am in love with fruit these days!  I’ve had a major sweet tooth through this pregnancy, so fruit has been my healthy snack of choice lately!  I still like to indulge in the occasional ice cream sandwich in the evenings, but sometimes I can get by with one (or two) of these fruit cups!

TuesdayI got carried away with cleaning up my office on Tuesday evening and ended up re-organizing the drawers of my desk!  I love a tidy drawer where I can find anything I need and I love throwing unused things away.  I probably threw away 100 pens that didn’t even work any more.


WednesdayLook what we did on Wednesday…


We put together the CRIB!  It’s surreal having this in our house. 

ThursdayJosh spotted this little cook book in the check out line at the grocery store recently and had to have it!  He asked me to start on page 1 and make every dish in the book!  Ha!

So, on Thursday Mike & Allison came over for dinner and we tried out the first recipe in the book ~ Cashew Beef with a marinated cucumber salad.  It turned out really good!



on Thursday we got these super special 3D pictures of our little Taylor.  It’s so fun to get a sneak peak at what she’s going to look like.

    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.
