Over the Moon

Steven and I are just elated to be announcing that we will be welcoming another baby into our family February 28, 2014.


It’s a BOY!!!

That is right; I am currently 15 weeks pregnant with another little boy and just over the moon.  Baby is healthy and looks pretty cozy per his ultrasound pictures.

Wylder at 12 weeks

He is currently about 4 inches long, without a nickname (yet), and I am just beginning to feel him flutter.  I am welcoming each and every stage of this pregnancy for just what it is, a real gift.  I loved every second of my pregnancy with Wylder and I plan to do the same this time.  Even the many ailments that come with early stages of pregnancy, I welcome with open arms … it is just more reassurance that baby is doing his job and growing away. 


15 week bump!

We are so happy to be sharing this wonderful news with all of you.  All who love Wylder.  Those of you that have been with us when things bottomed out, now get to share in GREAT joy as the Warrior will help us welcome a little brother from Heaven above.  It will be magical.  This last week has been so joyous to share tears of joy with family over the phone as we recognize this is an answered prayer from many of you too.  Thank you for all your continued love and support.  xoxo     

Wylder – We miss you and we know that in large part this is your doing … bring more joy into our lives with another love.  This baby will be wild, free and so very loved.  You will know as you look down on him running a muck with us cheering him on for his accomplishments … that is because you showed us the gift of life.  His life will be more full because of YOU.  Love you, and I’ll see you in my dreams.      

Baby;  We cannot wait to meet you and shower you with love and kisses.  You have the best big brother in all entire Universe, and you are going to be one loved little darling.  Stay safe. Love you.
