About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

Bump Update!

I realized I haven't had a bump update in a while.

The last time I put up a bump update was a very eventful day.

Not 30 minutes after I put up the post I was in the emergency room worried about a possible miscarriage.

Without going into too much gorey detail... there was lots of gore for around 4 hours.

Vague enough for you?

Anyway, they ended up doing an ultrasound and Scarlett was super active and had a strong heartbeat, but part of my amniotic sac had detached from body parts it was supposed to be attached to... thus the "gore".

So the ER sent me home with a "We're super lamesauce, and there's nothing we can do, you might, you might not, we'll never know even though we went to TONS of medical school and are charging you a ridonculous amount of money."

I've been on a sort of "Bed Rest" for the last 9 weeks or so.  No running, jumping, jet skiing, competitive weightlifting, etc; for me!  In return though, my little Scarlett is happy and healthy and still baking in the oven :)

I'd call this a pregnancy/belly success!

Prayers are of course still needed as they haven't taken any restrictions away, but baby is happy and healthy and at 23 weeks gestation (if for some horrible reason something went wrong) my little Scarlett has a chance of surviving outside of the cozy little dysfunctional home I've made for her :)

Once she's outside of this polka dot accessorized home though...

All bets are off.

I make 'em special.
