A day for remembering.....

With this day 15 mins from being over I decide to blog about this day in our families history. It was 5 years ago that I was 25 weeks pregnant and got the heartbreaking news that we lost baby , Mason, Preston's identical. I still don't understand why stuff like this happens. Not a day goes by that I don't think about that little boy. Read about it here: Triplets

Also on this day 3 years ago we lost our beloved Mama Jean (Aaron's grandmother) She was a fun free spirited lady. I know she would be so proud of her family. We miss her so much and can't believe it's been 3 years. I know she is up in heaven rockin her little Mason in her arms. Read about Mama Jean

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

I could not ask for a better husband, father, and mentor to our family. For our 8th anniversary on July 10 Aaron was out of town in California. I know poor Aaron in Los Angeles for work! So when I realized he would be gone for our anniversary I simply said "bring me something pretty back" Boy did he. First of all when Aaron gives a gift he really thinks about it. He doesn't just go by a random something and put it in a box. He went to High Voltage tattoo studio in Hollywood and purchased an autographed biography from Kat on D. She is a world famous tattoo artist and the star of reality show LA Ink. He then booked 2 flights to LA for he and I to fly out over Labor Day and for me to get a tattoo at High Voltage by one of their amazingly talented artists. He even arranged for his parents to come in from Louisiana to watch the kids. How cool is that? I'm so lucky to have a man that knows exactly what kind of gift I would love.


Since the day Carly was born we have been over the moon. Obviously because she's the last AND she's the baby. But a few months ago she started having major crying fits at night. I mean wailing from 5-7 every. single. night! So not fun. With Ashley, Preston and Lily I changed their formula to lactose free before they were a month old. With Carly I guess I didn't think to change because her crying was only at night. With the other 3 they spit up alot which was a big red flag, Carly never spits up. Well low and behold last week I switched her formula to a sensitive formula. It has made a huge difference. She is happy! I can't believe it took 3 months to figure it out but hey every kid is different right?!?!?! I wish I would've changed her formula before our trip to Destin.
