Mommy Erin. I enjoy the beach, long road trips, family time, blogging, photography, comedies, and so many other things. I've always wanted to be a mother. Several years ago I was told that I would probably not be able to have children, I was devastated. I was supposed to be a mother! Dennis and I moved to Florida in 2007 after I graduated college, so many fun times together. I started working for the Florida Government as an investigator, my job is stressful but I love protecting children. I found out I was pregnant in January 2009, we were ecstatic. I was finally a mother to a wonderful son. Then in April 2010 I found out I was pregnant again. Shocked, but still very excited. After having my first son I often wondered if I would ever have children again or if my first son was just a lucky fluke and would remain an only child his entire life (I grew up as an only child and I HATED that idea for my son, no offense to others...just my own personal views). I was so happy that Nolan would have another brother so close in age, they would do everything together! We got devastating news at our 20 week ultrasound, there was something very wrong with my unborn son. There was a possibility he would not survive past birth, there are no words to describe our feelings. We have since found more answers and I truly believe my son will survive and amaze us all. This is my journey of finding hope and strength while giving everything I can to my family.
Daddy Dennis. Dennis is a free spirit, never really gets upset over anything. He loves to laugh, make (not so funny) jokes, and see others smile. He also loves practical jokes. He is kind and very supportive. He moved to Florida with me in 2007 and began a job with Marriott. He is dedicated to his work and his family. He has always kept us safe and smiling. He has been the rock during this roller coaster of starting a family and finding out the scary news of our baby's condition. I have seen the not so happy side of him, and I hate that more than anything.
Nolan Reed. Our first little love bug was born July 30, 2009...a whole month early. He was still a huge baby for being premature, 7 lbs 5 oz. Nolan has brought so much to our lives and taught us so many things. Nolan looks just like his daddy but that's just fine. He is such a happy baby and was never very fussy, we got so lucky with Nolan. Even when he is sick he's still running around laughing and playing. Anytime things get a little hard on us, he can always pick us right back up. I am so thankful to have him through these difficult times, he makes any pain or hurt melt right away with his smile and bright blue eyes. <3
