Our little boy

As a lot of you know, last year was a very eventful one for us. It was this time last year that we were in Miami trying to help our twin boys. It has been almost a year but some of the hurt still lingers and I assume it always will. Well, we are pregnant again with a boy named Dawson and wouldn't you know this pregnancy seems to be on a course of sheer excitement.
Last Friday, Renee had a checkup with her high risk doctor. Yes it is the same doctor we visited so many times last year. We know them well. :) During her ultrasound it was discovered that there is too much amniotic fluid. This could mean that Renee has gestational diabetes or something could be wrong with Dawson. He might be unable to swallow as well as he should or it could be as serious as down syndrome or it could be nothing at all and he will be perfectly normal. This past Monday, Renee went to her regular OBGYN for the diabetes testing. On Tuesday she found out that she is not even in the realm of being considered diabetic. So, now she is to see her high risk doc in 2 weeks to possibly see what is causing the excess amniotic fluid. They have given us the choice of testing to see if there are markers for down syndrome but we declined due to the fact that a gift from God is a gift from God. You take it no matter what He gives you.
Once again, we are asking for your thoughts and prayers. Our spirits are high and we know that God has something in store for us. We are being used and we only hope that our attitudes and love for Christ will shine like never before.

Thank you.

April Showers bring May Flowers!!

Yesterday was a wonderful Mother's Day, the start of my 24th week of pregnancy & a tough milestone. Last year we spent Mother's Day on the way to Miami for my 1st procedure with the twins. Also, I gave birth on the Start of my 24th week of pregnancy to my 2 little angels.

I got an email from someone and at the bottom I LOVED the quote she had... "Be more kind than you think you should, because everyone is battling something" How true!! To the outside world of people that don't really know me I have it made. I'm young and pregnant with a little girl at home and a baby boy on the way. But, in reality I have some rough days because I'm really Mom to 4 babies... although 2 never came home with me...

Just had to get that out today ;o)

On a brighter note Shae and I went and purchased some flowers to plant!! I don't have much of a green thumb (actually I have what most would call a brown thumb) but I'm a positive thinker and just know that this year it will be different!! AND if my plants die its ok because there's always next year ;o)

Oh yeah and Home Depot now has a 1 year guarantee!! So, they're basically saying all you "brown thumber"s take a chance and if it doesn't work out (and it probably won't) then you can come back for another chance!! We too are positive thinkers and truly hope our plants can survive at least 1 year with your brown thumb!! ;o)

Hope you have a blessed day!!
