In a world with a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 16 month old, a 3 month old and two soldiers you never know what misadventures await. Life is always springing the unexpected and I want to share them with you. Welcome to my world.

Writer's Workshop: 2011 in Blog Posts

I love participating in Mama Kat's weekly Writer's Workshop, although I haven't been as on top of it as I wanted to be. I do plan to use the ideas to help me when I'm stuck on ideas! Anyway here is this week's entry.

January- An Aidan Story 1/14

My favorite post for this month was telling about my son waking up from a nightmare and him wanting to come cuddle with me. Although no parent enjoys their kids having nightmares I sure do love him wanting to cuddle with me.

Not exactly a favorite picture for the month,
but its memorable since I was 28 weeks pregnant and as we all know I didn't last much longer than this. Gotta love the crazy hair!

This was a particularly eventful post about my ambulance ride, life flight and the three days I spent in the hospital. Who knew a UTI could cause so much trouble!

March- Rhiannon Brielle Adelaide 3/3

We welcomed our daughter, Rhiannon Brielle Adelaide, on March 2nd and that was a big deal. It was so exciting to welcome another child into our lives and home. Wish she could have come home with us sooner, but we're glad she came home healthy!

This is has got to be my favorite photo for the month, since this was the first time I got to hold my precious baby girl!

April- Easter Surprise  4/24

Always a classic with humorous Easter stories! Gotta love how kids surprise us in the darndest ways!
This is one of my favorites for the month. We finally got to bring Rhiannon home and we had family photos done. I love seeing my sexy husband in uniform with my kids and love seeing him hold our daughter!

May- Its All in the Pack 5/9

My kids are crazy hands down, but I love the unique memories they bring to our home! I wrote about my Hubby carrying our daughter around in his new rucksack! What a crazy and amazing moment!

The photo I love the most was one I took myself of Rhiannon in an easter basket! I love how tiny she was and she fit so nicely. I was trying to practice my newborn photography and it didn't turn out too bad all things considered.

June-  Body Art of a Three Year Old 6/7

We got to enjoy another of those crazy kid moments, when my son discovered a pen and the fun of self body art! I will definitely use it as a future embarrassing story for my son!

My brave girl after a night in the ER and then in the Ped's floor! Glad it was only one night though! Gotta love my beautiful little Pixie!

July-  Bad Tidings & Some Heartache 7/27

July was a rough month for us since we found out we miscarried in June and then again in July. Obviously a big set back in trying for a baby, but we knew it meant we just had to be more patient.

Gotta love all the hard work Mommy's put into to make things like this! My kids loved it and it made all the work worthwhile.

August- 'I'm A Doctor' 8/26

I wrote another memorable moment with my son, as he showed us how much he notices around him. He checked Daddy just like he saw the doctor check him out. It was so cute and I wish I had taken photos of that moment.

I love this photo I took in a cemetery in Chicago with my new camera. I had no idea how I did it, but it turned out awesome!

September- A Surprise 9/15

What a tremendous moment for us, when we finally announced that we would be welcoming a new baby into our home! It was a miracle to me after having two miscarriages prior.

One of my favorite photos from the month was this one, which so well with our announcement of baby #4!

October-  Ultrasound 10/29

I always love getting ultrasounds with my babies and this one is no less exciting. I couldn't wait to share that my baby was looking great and was thriving.

Baby's legs and tummy @ 12w6d
I love this ultrasound picture, our little guy was squirming around and being so alive. Can't help but worry about this pregnancy.

November- FAQ 11/4

I really enjoy participating in Mama Kat's writer's workshops and one of my favorites was coming up with a list of Frequently Asked Questions. It was so much fun to share rather unusual information in such a creative way.

Yes that's fat, pregnant me with a Bella & Edward Look alikes
I love this particular photo cause I love getting the opportunity to be a kid as an adult. My husband takes me to all the premiere night events for the Twilight movies and I almost always dress up. I had to be less subtle this time around, but I was supposed to be a pregnant Bella!

December- Pixie Got Her First... 12/28

How exciting and relieving that our little Pixie finally cut her first tooth. She's so cute and smiles all big & toothy all the time, its not too long before its up enough where you can really see it. She's been a pretty good sport through it all.

Not a photo exactly, but I can't help but share this super fun ultrasound of our son, Fallon! Can't wait for him to get here.

Here is year in blog posts! I hope you enjoy getting to know my family over the last year!
