A Promised Post

On July 14th, 2010, a day Shaylor and I had been dreaming and praying for for 2 1/2 years finally cam true with a positive pregnancy test. I always thought I would tell Shaylor in a really cool way, but it didn't happen. I was going out with the girls that night and wanted to drink since I hardly ever got to, but took a test to ease my mind, keep in mind I had probably taken 100 test by this point. So not thinking anything of it, I took the test and walked away to get ready. I ended up taking a peek and saw two lines. I ended up taking 3 more test. Shaylor was already at work so I sent him a picture but didn't hear back from him, so I called his work and surprised him by telling him at work!!!! Needless to say, he didn't appreciate that too much. I called our fertility specialist the next morning and went and she took blood and confirmed I was pregnant, but I still took probably 10 more tests just to be sure. I had to have blood drawn every other for about a week just to be sure everything was progressing. At 6 weeks we got to have a sonogram and see our miracle. It is still so surreal that I have a son that I can hold and love and do everything else a mom can do.

We decided this year we would do something to celebrate the day we were given a miracle and we went and toured the cowboys stadium, which is awesome, had lunch with some great friends, and ended the day just getting to love on Kysen. I never know what we will tell Kysen about our journey, or if we even will. I do hope one day he knows that God is good and He does give us the most amazing blessings! July 14th will probably always be a day that Shaylor and I will celebrate, and hold so dear to our hearts.

I know many friends that are struggling with infertility right now, and are getting pretty beat down by it. Whenever you read this, I ask that you lift them up in prayer. Many people who read our blog either have dealt with infertility or have been by our side as we struggled and you know what we through.

Thanks for continuing on this journey with us!

4 months

We can't believe Kysen Allin thata you are 4 months old. On July 14, 2010 we found out we were pregnant with you, so this milestone was really special. We will blog later with what we did to celebrate.

You weigh 14 pounds 2 ounces- 30th percentile

You are 26 inches long- 90th percentile

You are wearing size 1 diapers still

If you are wearing a one piece outfit then you are in 3-6 month clothing. If it is separates, bottoms are 0-3 months and still big on you, and your top is 3-6 months.

You smile the second you lock eyes with anyone, but when you hear Mommy or Daddy's voice, or see us, you squeal and smile your biggest smile. You already know how to melt some one's heart.

You have found your voice and talk ALL THE TIME!

You love to laugh when Daddy does babyquake.

You love to laugh when Mommy gives you kisses.

You are still sleeping in your swaddle, but we are trying to break you of that before Mommy goes back to work.

Sleeping is still a strong point with you. We just lay you in your crib and you put yourself right to sleep.

You get very cranky if you are not in bed by 8/8:30.

We can find you awake anywhere between 5 and 7, then you always go back to sleep until 9 or 10.

You have started talking instead of crying when you wake up.

You will not nap during the day.

Your favorite things to do right now is swim and play with your jeep.

You drink 6, 6 ounce bottles everyday.

We love you big boy!!!!!!
