Life will hit you fast and most people are not ready for it!

I have realize that Jeff and I are very private people and like to keep things to ourselves. Alot of our family and friends do not understand and usually jump to conclussions and don't bother to ask us if they have a questions. So here is a run down of our lives from the last 4 years. I do not want people to feel sorry us but maybe you will understand why Jeff and I rely on ourselves and stay closed off.

We lived in Florida with out family close to us for 5 years together. We decided to start a family in 2004 after both of us had great jobs and we were we thought we should be as a couple. We soon realized that getting pregnant was not going to be easy and had to go on fertility drugs. We got pregnant of Jan-04 and had our first miscarriage in March-04. Everyone thought this would break us as a couple but it made us stronger. We tried again and we got pregnant with Payton. I had a rough time and had to have an emergency c-section at 35 weeks. Payton was sick when he was born and had to be in the hospital 10 days due to both lunges collapsing. During my pregnancy Jeff's back went bad and he had to have surgery.

We promise to keep you updated more on what is going on with us.

Braxton has stones!

Finally we have an answer to Braxton's pain, random vomits and over all not feeling good.

He has gall stones...Before you say it yes we know he is only 6 but it is true.  We saw them on the xray and during his sonogram.

So off to a consultation with the pediatric surgeon so we can get it removed and get him back to normal. 

Please keep him in your prayers.  We see the surgeon on the 20th of February.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from our family to yours! 

I realize it has been a long time since we posted last.  We do apologize.  Life here is busy all the time and we are starting to ramp up for our winter sports.  P has indoor soccer and B has basketball.  We also have birthdays around the corner so get ready for many updates.

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
