Above you will see pictured my family! They are my reason for living!
Rc and I met when we were 16, yet didn’t start dating until 2004 when we were 20.
November 27 to be exact.
On December 7th, 2005, I found out we were going to be parents.
Rc’s response? “But how did that happen?”
Yeah, I still tease him to this day, because we were taking the necessary precautions.
I was medicated. He was using condoms.
Michael Ray was just meant to be!
My little book nerd 🙂
We had planned to go to the Courthouse to get married before he made his arrival.
Things happened. The money was needed for other stuff.
Michael was born August 11, 2006.
We wed March 31, 2007.
Fast Forward 22 months to June 2008.
On the 17th (My Grandpa’s birthday) I started having 2-3 minute contractions.
My water NEVER broke.
Finally around 1PM on the 18th, we went to the hospital.
At 1:11AM June 19th, Connor was born!
Both of my boys were 7 pounds 9 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long.
Though the boys were born the same weight, Connor has always been smaller it seems.
He’s my blue eyed, blonde haired boy.
My little gamer boy.
Head on to February 14th, 2012.
I was late! 2 weeks late to be exact.
I stopped by Walmart to get a pregnancy test and it was positive.
We were stoked!
We all really wanted a girl!
We didn’t wait to tell anyone.
Some people had to open their mouth and say we didn’t need another kid.
It was said that I deserved to lose this pregnancy.
Well, to those people so said such hurtful things. I hope YOU are happy.
This pregnancy was ended at 11w0d due to a miscarriage.
Our 3rd child will forever be an Angel on April 4, 2012.
July 27th, 2012 we found out we were expecting our 4th child.
This was not announced to anyone until September 24, 2012.
I wanted to wait until the 1st trimester was up and we heard a heartbeat.
Easter Morning of 2013 was March 31, 2013.
It happened to be Rc and I’s 6th wedding anniversary.
I was dropping the boys off at my parents to go to church with them.
I was skipping church that day because I was huge and had nothing to wear.
I was also going to be induced on April 1, 2013 with our baby girl.
Connor decided to come give me a hug and wanted me to hold him.
I bent to pick him up and as soon as I straightened back up, there was a slight gush.
I put him down & went to my parents restroom and sat down on the toilet.
Not having my water break naturally on my own, I wasn’t sure this was it.
So I had read online that when you think that’s what it is, to move side to side.
If it stopped, it was just a little pee.
If it kept going, it was your water rupturing.
It kept going.
Rc and I spent our 6th wedding anniversary in the hospital.
We now share our anniversary with our daughters birthday!
Rosalie was born at 10:45PM.
She weighed 7 lb 15.5 oz and was 19 inches long.
Now If you got through all that, congratulations and thank you for reading!
I have always had a love of reading and started reading The Baby Sitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High books when I was in elementary school, along with the Goosebumps books!
I think when I started junior high, I would secretly read my mom’s books she had around the house. She had almost all of Danielle Steels books, and the first one I remember reading was called Daddy.
Danielle Steel got me hooked on Romance Novels from about 12 years of age.
I’m super happy that I have passed on my love of reading to Michael!
