From the first moment I laid eyes on my husband, I wanted to marry him. Unfortunately, I was dating one of his best friends. It took us 3 years but we finally found our way to one another.
Derek & I began dating in September, 2003. We knew we belonged together instantly. I went to his house to watch movies one evening, and I never left his side since.
After 1 1/2 years, we were engaged. Another 1 1/2 years, married, on October 21, 2006.
We both have always loved kids so we knew we would some day have children, by the grace of God. We planned on waiting a year or two. By 6 months into our marriage, we changed our minds. Caught up in the moment of love, we decided we would try to conceive right then & there... Afterwards, we decided we had done lost our minds b/c we weren't ready since we were only newlyweds. God had other plans.
Tyler Jace was born on Wednesday, January 9, 2008. Never in my life have I felt the kind of love I felt when my husband sat by my side, comforting me while being in labor for 11 hours. Once it was finally over, we both cried for joy. Our beautiful baby boy has been our entire world for over 3 years now. He's perfect in every way.
Once Ty made 2, my husband & I began ttc for the baby girl I've always dreamed of having. 2 months later, I found out I was pregnant. Makenzi Grace was born on Tuesday, October 26, 2010. We thought our world was perfect & then there were 4! It's taking a lot of getting use to but we're getting there... We love both of our babies & feel complete. Whether there will be more in the future, who knows... I'm so in love with my life. Things couldn't be better!!!
And, here we are...
