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.
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!
