Babies will come when they want. Sometimes when we are ready and others when we aren’t. The later is true for us. I wasn’t packed and my husband was away at work still, set to come home the next day. Baby D arrived Wednesday October 15th at 7:54pm. I went to my regular 37 week prenatal visit that morning and had just missed my doctor who had to run out and deliver a baby so I had to wait and see the midwife, who is equally wonderful. She checked my cervix which had been just barely 1cm the week before. She had a slightly surprised look on her face and asked if I’d been tracking my contractions. Which I hadn’t because I mean I’d been having them for weeks and I was pretty settled into the idea of going until my induction date of the 29th. She thought it would be a really great idea if I went directly to labor and delivery to be monitored. I was 4cm on the outer edge and 2cm on the inside. With contractions pretty regular. I got over there around 1 and ended up admitted. They broke my water at 6:50, I can’t even tell you how long I pushed for. Honestly it was only 2-3 pushes and he was here all 6lbs 15oz and 20.5 inches. I can’t believe he’s here already and that I have a little boy finally after three girls. He’s perfect!



Today my mother in law sold her camper trailer. It was something that was hard and sad to do. It was a part of Dad, and something she loved to do with him. We made some amazing memories in that trailer. I’m sure she made even more. I’m sort of sad because Miss A never got to sleep in that trailer, and never will. Neither will the peanut. It’s a reminder that he left us much too soon. Two of my children will never get to meet him this side of Heaven. It doesn’t sit well. Though, we all must keep on, I just hope that I can share enough with them that they may know how wonderful he was. I miss him daily. I’m so glad to have the husband I have, he reminds me of him often. I know that he was only my father in law, but he was so much more. He had become a friend that I loved to hang out with when everyone else was at work. Miss M and Miss V used to play with him, I pray they remember how much he loved them.

Saying goodbye to pieces of him is so bittersweet. Mainly due to how much of him we lost when we had our house fire back in 2012. Every little thing dredges up the memories. It’ll be 5 years in February since he went home to be with the Lord and still its all so very fresh.

It seems a little silly to get sentimental over a trailer, especially one I didn’t privately own. I am however very at peace with the couple who bought it from my mother in law. They will be able to use it for their dog handler they just hired. It’s a make shift home that will work perfectly for what they need it for. I’d like to believe that meeting them also put my mother in law at ease over selling it. That God had somehow lined up the perfect couple to own it.

This is how it is basically every night/morning. She came into the bed around 2 am this time. Not sure how it’s gonna work out once we have a newborn sharing as well. I wish I could come up with a way to get her to stay in her own bed all night. But on the other hand they are only this way for so long and she’s one of the best cuddle bugs! IMG_8167.JPG

So now that there are only so many days left I realize I never posted that I am pregnant. We are actually having a boy this time. Which is nice considering it’s our last. The peanut is due November 3rd.


Miss A is 21 months old today. It goes by so fast. She’s a huge ball of energy all the time and goes and goes until she finally conks out. It’s going to be so interesting to see how she is once the peanut is born


Miss M is a 4th grader and Miss V is a 3rd grader. It’s amazing how quickly time flies. Here’s hoping this year is just as wonderful as last year!!



I find it truly amazing how fun these girls are. My true heart wandering around outside of me!

Holy crow! Christmas was busy busy! I wasn’t prepared even though I had all my shopping done. Except for food shopping. The 23rd I woke up sick with an odd stomach virus. It was horrid and threw off my whole schedule. My hubby came in that day also so it was just hectic and didn’t really stop from there.
Christmas Eve we went out to my parents to celebrate my sisters 19th birthday. Then rushed home at 8:30 so the girls could open their Christmas Eve gift from us. This is always pjs but this year they also got a Christmas themed movie and popcorn. So they took popcorn and a movie downstairs. Then we waited for them to go to sleep finally around 10 so we could finish prepping for Christmas morning.
All in all Christmas wonderful. We had more family with us this year and it was beautiful. Even with a few bumps, like my dads car deciding it was just too cold at -10F to start.
I’m looking forward to packing away the Christmas decorations after New Years and getting to start a brand new year.
2014 is hopefully going to be a great year!


Constantly walking around now. Growing too fast!!


I will confess that I am completely enamored with this little one! She’s already a year old and it breaks my heart. It goes by too fast so today when she was done nursing and had fallen asleep I chose to just snuggle her.
