Guess what I just did.

So First things First:
Pictures.  When you go back to blogging for the first time in a long time, people want to see pictures.  I understand and will comply.  These are from our family photo shoot in October.  I am one lucky mamma.

My husband, ever the science teacher is teaching them about bugs here.  I did not want to participate.  

This little girl is going to be 2 years old this month.  It's amazing how big she is.  Our little Penny.

And her big sister, the amazing Macie, will be 4 in May.  She's in preschool two days a week and she loves it.  I mean, loves it.  But really, both her parents are teachers.  So what choice does she have?

Well, I just got off the phone with the Reproductive Endocrinologist.  We have 2 embryo's left, and we're going to use them!
But not for a few more months.  
If you don't remember the gist of our story with the girls...we tried for 3 years to have Macie.  We did a failed fresh IVF (2 embryo's) and a successful frozen cycle (3 embryo's [and GOD!]) gave us Macie.  We never used birth control after that.  We had a chemical pregnancy when Macie was just 10 months old, and we were gearing up to try the 2 embryo's we had left and had even started the process with the Dr. for the next frozen cycle when my period never came.  So there was Penny, our 'Surprise'. (although it's hard to say surprise...we do know how babies are made, but really, a "free" baby?  crazy!).  So that brings us to now.  We have NOT been trying since Penny was born.  We feel like we have been blessed with these two last embryo's, so we're going to give them a try, and if we got pregnant again...well...we're just not trying to make things more confusing for ourselves.  :).  So here we are.  
And it's funny, I haven't blogged much in the past few years.  But my very first instinct was to get back on this blog and tell you all about it.  
The appointment I made for the Dr. isn't until the end of April, but that' okay.  We're not in a hurry.  And I want to put up here some accountability...I really need to lose the last of Penny's baby weight (well, it's my baby weight) before getting pregnant again.  So as of today, it's on!  (or off? hmm).  
I'll keep you posted. 
Leave a comment if you're reading, I'd love to catch up with you ladies!

Love the pictures and LOVE the news!! That's very exciting. :)
Keep us posted!!!

I haven't been blogging. Let an IRL person know my blog address and then felt betrayed by her so I haven't really been writing. But... I'm 29 wk pregnant with twins. :) Still can't believe it. We're in shock. We tried again - with the RE - in August and for by the grace of God it's stuck. We're still in awe.

Love this update!! xoxo
