Four years ago I married the love of my life, after 5 years of dating. On April 4th this year, our 9 year "dating" anniversary, our life took a turn we could have never prepared for. Zach sat in that hospital with me the week I was on bedrest taking care of me, and truly being my rock. After the babies were born, he was so proud, loving and boasting about me and the boys, and then that dreaded next day when we had to say goodbye to our sweet Conor, Zach was strong and he continued to be my rock. He shared in heartbreak, but yet he took the time to take care of me, be there for Blake, and mourn all at the same time. Now, not only am I truly blessed to have the most loving, handsome, amazing husband any girl could have, but my children have the BEST daddy they could ever, EVER ask for! I know now that through our heartbreak our love grows stronger everyday, I couldn't have survived this without Zach, and it makes the words beyond our vows more meaningful and close to my heart.
"...to have and to hold, from this day forward,
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health, until death do us part."
And today I sit, 4 years after our vows, and I can't help but thank God for sending Zach into my life. I have the best man to love, a beautiful angel baby, and a sweet lil' man sitting at home for me....how much sweeter could life get. I love you Zach, Happy Anniversary babe- its us two, till the end, forever and always.

Trip down memory lane... our first four years of marriage.
So good news here... The prayers helped Blake saw his surgeon Dr. Rouse from Indy yesterday down at the Women's Hospital and he took a look at the possible hernia... He says it's just a pocket of fluid that should dissolve on its own without the need for surgery!!!! YAY!!! And my lil' chunker was a bundle of happiness for him and his nurses...he was wide awake and happy as can be. He also was placed on the scale, mind you we just weighed in last week at 8lbs 12.5 ounces, today however Blake was a total 9----yes I meant to put NINE pounds, 6 ounces!! The doctors are stunned they told Zach to keep doing what we are doing, that it's obviously working!! We are so proud of the progress we have made in the past month that we've been home, and can only believe that he is a miracle through and through!!!
Now here are some pictures of our little man discovering himself in the mirror this is as funny to watch as the pictures seem...ignore the blurriness in some of the pics he was just moving all about!!
