The Real Reason I've Been MIA!!

Ok, I'm checking in to announce the real reason I haven't been posting.

The main reason is because I recently found out I was


We found out on Memorial Day but kept it to ourselves for a while.
I'm very superstitious , I don't like to announce until I'm past the 12 week period.
I'm now 14 weeks, due Jan. 21st.

I have been super, super sick!
Nausea, vomiting, tired & laziness!

I was always so obsessed w/my computer, on it everyday, but just haven't had the will to even really get on it.
I'm starting to feel a little better but not totally there yet.
Really hoping it goes away soon because I do miss blogging.

Also this wasn't a planned pregnancy so I've needed some time to get used to the idea of having a 5th child.
Financially it will be harder but we'll figure it out.
It must have been meant to be, that's how I'm choosing to look at it!

So, thank-you to my followers for still following me & dealing w/my absence!

My Baby Turns 2!

This post is for my baby boy Rylan.
I wasn't feeling well enough to do it on his actual birthday, so I'm making up for it now.

I can't believe it's been 2 years since you were born!
My pregnancy & delivery weren't the easiest of pregnancies but I would do it all over again in a minute if I had to!

Such a good baby you were!
Now a cute, energetic, happy & polite little toddler w/the biggest, bluest eyes!
A huge mommy's boy, especially at night time, only mommy can put you to bed!
Loves his sisters & brother alot! Always wants to be w/one of them!
Lately has really been following his big brother around everywhere & wants to do everything he does!
Definitely a boy, loves his trucks & to play ball!
