It's a....

We are soo excited to announce we are having a little boy join our family! His name will be Baker Stephen. After our fathers. We feel incredibly blessed to have another miracle, healthy growing baby. Had a a great 20week checkup the other day! And this time we aren't having to see a "high risk" specialist which again we are thankful for! This pregnancy is going so fast. Especially with the Holidays quickly approaching!

#2 cont...

In case we aren't friends on fb....

I got to make this sweet announcement a few days ago! We transferred our last little embryo around Father's Day and it worked! I was completely shocked it worked and could not be more grateful and thankful! I was super nervous and really doubted that it would work since it didn't the 1st time with one. But God is good and we are soo excited to welcome another little baby to our fam! I'm 14ish weeks and excited to find out if it's a boy or girl!

Thanks for all of your prayers!

Soo I know its's been awhile and I have written this post in my head a TON I just haven't sat down long enough to write it all out. We have entered in the stage of ... "soo when is baby #2 coming?".... blah, blah, blah. You know the usual- which is totally fine for most people to be asked that. BUT when you have been through infertility and get your miracle baby, that does not mean it just goes away. I know people think sometimes it does, and for some it may be easier the next time around but for most it doesn't just disappear. The 2nd time around is different. For there is less pressure, but lets be honest, if you are wanting and praying for a baby that you are unsure can ever happen again b/c it took years and lots drugs, it can be tough to swallow to want to put yourself through that again.
We have 1 last shot for baby #2. We have 1 frozen baby left. We will not do ivf again- 1, its too expensive. 2- we don't feel like we should. 3- 1 & 2 should be good enough :)
 Anyways... I DO really want a sibling for Maren however; I do NOT want to enter in the "dark times" again. They were really tough, I was not in a good, healthy or happy place. We have been so incredibly thankful for our sweet gift and we begged God for her and for that we are forever grateful to God for her life. I always said I would be okay with one child and I will! I know God will get me there if that is His will. I just haven't been ready to face this fortunate "fear" so I've been putting it off to stay in my happy place.

So that is my update for now! I will definitely start updating more as we start thinking about baby #2 and our 2nd journey!

20 months

Well Maren is 20 months old. We celebrated Fathers Day, have enjoyed going to the pool, enjoyed Meg-Meg coming for a few visits. (She graduated from u of a and is now in PT school in KC. We are learning to do life w/o her here in Fay). 
Maren also decided to climb/bail out of her crib several time. So now her crib has been converted to the toddler bed. She did awesome w/ the transition and is doing great! We have been so proud of her
