Lots of Firsts!

Boy, have we been busy lately!  Taylor has been having a fun summer and experiencing lots of firsts lately.  She is such a good little girl and just goes with the flow!

On Saturday, our neighbors threw a fabulous Summer Party at our community pool.  Taylor got all dressed up for the occasion…


Taylor got in the pool for the first time too!  The water was so warm; it felt like bath water, so she loved it.  Once she got in her floatie and had her pacifier, she was asleep in minutes!


It is such a joy experiencing all these firsts with our baby!  I still can’t believe she’s actually mine.  She just fits into our lives so well.  We’ve been waiting for her for so long.


This past week, five of Taylor’s cousins came to visit.  She got to meet her Auntie and Uncle and got lots of attention from her cousins.  All of them were so good to her and enjoyed loving on the newest addition of the family!


Another big first for Taylor was her first trip to Downtown Disney!  While my family spent the day at the Magic Kingdom,  we just met up with them at Downtown Disney for dinner and some shopping.    It was so much fun taking her there (not like she cares about any of it yet or anything) but it was still wonderful!




Happy Summer All!

    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.
