When Jake asked me if I wanted to renew my domain name I wasn’t really sure what to say. It’s been a year since I’ve even logged on. But I said yes, if for no other reason than to have a place to put my latest birth story. Yup! We welcomed another sweet little boy into our family at the end of August!

After the miscarriage in August of last year, we moved out of the apartment and into a house. On our first morning in our new home, I discovered I was pregnant again. The POAS addict that I am, I watched the line on the HPT darken on each test for the next two days and then grow fainter and fainter. Another loss. Baby #4. This one really did me in and I dropped off the face of the planet for the most part. It was rough.

We decided not to wait to try again this time and within a few weeks were pregnant again, with baby’s due date being just a couple days short of a year after Baby#3′s death. Our 2nd trimester ultrasound with Baby #5 was actually on Baby #3′s due date, a bit of a bittersweet morning.

Over the next few days I’ll be writing and posting my full, detailed birth story, but here’s an update on my guys for now.

Wedding

 

Aedyn is now 4 and a half. He has tempered down a little bit, but is still just as passionate, determined, and focused (when he wants to be) as he ever was. He is also girl crazy, which wasn’t helped by being in a friend’s wedding this past summer.

Jaron just turned 3. He is still my sweetheart, and even though he definitely has a case of the terrifying 3′s, he loves to sit and cuddle and just be with me wherever I go.

And this is our new guy, Declan Gabriel, born August 30, 9lb 8oz, 22″ long. He is Mr. Smiley and is definitely trying to catch up to his brothers, at his 2mo doctors visit he had already lept to 15lb 1oz and 26″. It won’t be long before he’s keeping up with the bigger boys!

Enjoy to the Mania

Has it really been that long since I’ve posted?

I have my reasons…

Right after Thanksgiving my Great Aunt passes away. My extended family is very close, so Jaron and I drove up to Tennessee with my dad and then

13 hour trip, but books and riding in a truck with only a front seat really helped!! He loved sitting right next to us and being able to see out!

back down with my mom a few days later. It was a whirlwind trip which seemed to sap every bit of energy that I had, but everyone was thrilled to see us, it had been over a year. Too bad Jake and Aedyn had to stay home this time!
We got home just in time for everyone to come down with nasty colds…hopefully we got all of our winter sicknesses out of the way in one go…that was a mess!

I danced as a performer (as opposed to teacher) for the first time in nearly a decade! It was so nice to be on stage again, but man has my body changed! 10 years and 2 kids will do that to you I guess…

After that we were planning, cleaning and otherwise preparing for our Christmas Open House. Of course, not everything got done that I wanted done, stockings are still not made, but we had a great time this past Saturday and hopefully it will become an annual thing.

So that’s the quick update. More details to come when I have more than a couple minutes to write…this having only one computer and Jake working from home really puts a crimp in my blogging style!

I thought once we moved into the house I’d have time to do Thanksgiving crafts with the boys. We have a lot to be thankful for this year, but apparently being thankful for the ability to sit still and do crafts isn’t one of them…having 2 wonderfully active little boys is though!

We’ve done a couple crafty type things. But we haven’t had nearly as much time as I thought with trying to unpack and keep up with our daily stuff too.

It also doesn’t help that every time I mention “ship”  (referring to the Mayflower) they think and say and expect to do something involving the Millennium Falcon. the downside of having cool kids!

That’s been my week, trying to keep up with laundry and a clean house and sort out boxes and spaces in the meantime. What a process! I did manage to get my Thanksgiving wreath done though, next year will be better with the decorations!

Last week was a whirlwind of unpacking and decorating, that is to say that the living room/dining room/kitchen & the boys bedroom got almost completely done in record time.

We’re still lacking a couple rugs and getting the boys’ wall art and closet sorted out, but that should be taken care of this week.

The big deal is that Jaron had his birthday party on Saturday!!

My little big guy, so bittersweet to watch him grow into more of a little boy and less of a baby.

His verbal skills are ahead of the curve both in vocabulary and enunciation so we are often caught by surprise by what is going on in his little brain and that he can express himself so clearly. He keeps up with Aedyn as much as possible and is quite the climber and balancer.

He has an amazing imagination and loves playing pretend. He also loves books and would sit all day in someones lap being read to if he could! He also has an amazing memory, he has memorized all of Aedyn’s Bible verses for Cubbies right along with his brother and sings whole songs without help, his favorite, of course, are the themes from Star Wars. Go figure!

He’s been fully potty trained night and day for a couple months and stopped breastfeeding (much mixed emotion there!) last month.

 

Hope that all ya’ll had awesome weeks as well, don’t forget to link up!!
