I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Blog Hop '09

Because I absolutely adore Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife, I'm joining in on Blog Hop '09. Well, that and both kids are asleep and there's nothing on tv. It's being co-hosted by Robin over at Pensieve.

A little about me...I'm a SAHM/W to a hard-working husband and our two little girls. My husband (Big Daddy) and I have been married for nine years. The Muffin is our three year old, and Baby Ellie is our newest addition. (She's almost 7 weeks old now. I say almost, because she already seems to be growing way too fast!!) Once upon a time I was a real estate broker, but now I'm The Mommy.
I started blogging because...of my aunt. A couple of days after she found out that we were expecting baby #2, she emailed me all about my new blog...as in she did everything and just told me to start posting. It's sort of become the scrapbook for our family because I'm not a scrapbooker! I blog about our daily lives and most recently, my pregnancy, the birth of Baby Ellie and our move back to my hometown and looking for a new church.
All about the name...I imagine that my Aunt Lisa came up with the name because we were expecting a sweet, little baby and all babies are miracles! Our sweet Muffin is especially special and such a miracle! She survived undiagnosed vasa previa. This is a condition that is very life threatening and often goes undiagnosed. Luckily, The Muffin was delivered by emergency c-section and survived without any effects! This was such a miracle. After her birth, we were told that the placenta had a succentriate lobe and that we also had velamentous cord insertion. Then, there's Baby Ellie. She is the baby that we talked about, planned for, prayed for, tried for and received. She was born by VBAC and you can read all about that on my blog. I think she completes our little family. You'd have to follow my blog to see if that's true!
