Things have been a lot quieter than normal in this neck of the woods over the past two weeks. All for good reason.

On March 1, 2016, I had to have an emergency medical induction. I’m not going to dive right into all the details right now, as I am short on time.

However, I will tell you that in the early morning hours on a stormy March 2, we welcomed Oakley to our lives, weighing 6lbs 10oz.


After a pregnancy that was full of a lot of uncertainty and one complication after another, I cannot even begin to describe to you how amazing it feels to have him here, healthy, happy and in arms. It may have been a journey to get to this day, but it was a journey that was well-worth it and so rewarding.

Our family is complete, and this little dude has us wrapped around his little itty, bitty fingers!
