Birthday Boy!

Today is Josh’s 30th birthday! 

This past weekend, I surprised him with a birthday party.  He sure is hard to surprise, but we pulled it off.  I managed to pick up all the food Sunday morning, sneak it in the house (while he was upstairs with Taylor) and have 12 of our closest friends and all the kids congregate in the back yard.  When everything was ready, I told him I had made lunch and set it up on the lanai.  As we came outside, he saw everyone waiting for him in the backyard.  It was fun to see him surprised and so happy to see everyone!

I got a yummy ice cream cake for him and loaded it up with 30 candles.  He proudly blew out all the candles with our sweet baby girl in his arms.  She is the best present he could ask for!


The whole gang!

    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.
