How's it going?

Since I've had several people ask lately, I thought I would just lay it all out on here. I know some people would think that I'm being too open about this, and they would never blog about something so personal, but I'm pretty much an open book on this subject. Mostly because it's a struggle for me, and I believe God uses our struggles to show his power and also to show others how he works in our struggles. God has walked with me through each and every painful, heartbreaking, awesome, and joyful step. It's been nice to look back and remind myself of God's faithfulness and how his plan has only drawn me closer to him.

By now you're reading this and probably thinking, what in the world is she talking about?! Ha! So, what am I talking about? My journey/ road on trying to get pregnant and have another baby.

So, how is it going? Well, right now I'm seeing the glass as half full.

I didn't get pregnant last month, but I did ovulate! Praise God! I'm still on the lowest possible dosage of clomid and metformin (both recommended by my Dr. because of my PCOS). I'm thankful that my body is responding to these meds on a low dosage.

I hope and pray that we will have more children, and as long as the possibility is there with my body doing what it should, I'm motivated to keep trying. :)

On a completely separate note, Caleb survived his mission trip to Belize. He came home a little sick and extremely exhausted, but it was so good to have him home. I missed him so much!

We had a great weekend with some good, quality, family time (and time for just the two of us too). The weather has been gorgeous and I'm looking forward to the next few months.



P.S. I realize I don't have any pictures for this post. I think I need to work on taking more pictures. ;)

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
