Good morning ladies! Please welcome one of our next fabulous Mommies of the Week, babybatax2!

Name? Stephanie

Where are you from? New Jersey

How many weeks along are you now? 34w

Team blue, pink or green? PINK!!

Tell us 3 things that we might not have already known about you! (Fun facts, interests, hobbies, etc.)

1. I enjoy running, but haven't done it since becoming pregnant and am SO excited to do a 5k this spring!

2.I have twin girls (which you probably already know), but Rylan has many medical problems and we spend WAY too much time at hospitals. I know more than most doctors at this point!

3. I enjoy making crafts. I make bows, tutus, and bow holders, and keep spending more and more money on other projects, that are currently sitting in a corner in the dining room.




Go ahead, ladies! Ask her anything!

I love the family picture! Your girls' hair is so long and beautiful.

Have you always lived in NJ? We're not far from there (we're in PA but pretty close to the state line). I feel like most people we meet have lived up in this area for their entire lives.

Do you sell any of your bows, tutus, etc. or is it more for fun?

If you don't mind me asking, what kinds of medical issues does R deal with? I'm sorry she's had to spend so much time with doctors and in hospitals - poor thing.

Can you share pictures of some of your crafts?

Do you have any other hobbies other than crafting and running?

How did you and DH meet?

Your girls are adorable!!!

Do you have a name for baby yet?

And ditto to Kayla, do you sell any of your crafts? Do you make any baby items?

How did you announce your pregnancy to your daughters? Are they excited for another girl?

Awwww! It will be so awesome to have 3 girls!

What is your biggest pregnancy craving so far this time?

Do you plan to share your crafting skills with your girls as they get older?

I've lived in NJ my whole life! We are in Central NJ and I live in the same town I grew up in!

I do sell my bows and tutus. I have a facebook page set up...I think the link is in my siggy

Rylan is our miracle baby! Besides the trach, if you looked at her, you would never know anything was wrong. So Ry has VACTERL, tracheomalacia, subglottic stenosis grade 2, laryngeal cleft type 3, esophogeal stricture...lol VACTERL is an acronym for various birth defects. She has V (vertebral) scolisos, A (Anal atresia) an imperforate anus, C (cardiac) dextrocardia (heart is on the right side), ASD, PDA (which are little holes), TE (trachel esophogeal atresia) she has a small opening between her esophagus and trachea, L (limbs) she has "funny" thumbs.

So basically...she has a trach because her airway is teeny tiny...when she was born her airway was 95% occluded! No one knew how she made it to 2 months old, which is when she was trached. She had colostomy, which is reversed now and she poos normally!! She actually had her first real poo on our anniversary! BEST anniversary present ever!! She also has a g-tube because she never learned to eat...BUT she is super smart and you seriously would never know she had 17 surgeries!!

Sorry for the novel! I am very open about Ry!

Here's a pic of some of my stuff that I had posted on a local yardsale site


I enjoy reading sometimes, but don't have much time for that! Other than that its all about the girls!

DH and I met through a mutual friend that I actually couldn't stand! We've been together 11 years!

Baby is still nameless!! I am going crazy trying to find a name and dh shoots them all down. He has no suggestions though

I don't make any baby items really. I have some skinny elastic for headbands, but haven't made them yet!! Baby has no bows yet!

The girls are super excited for a baby!! They've named her Rapunzel We just told them and been talking about it since we found out. Dakota keeps asking "is baby coming out today?"

Baked potatoes with sour cream and poptarts!! lol

The girls enjoy doing crafts now! Usually while I'm making bows, they sit with me and cut their ribbons, or glue.

What are your girls favourite hobbies?
What are your pet peeves?
Do your girls have your personality, DH's personality, or are they like neither of you?

The girls love animals!! They have probably close to 200 toy plastic animals. It's quite ridiculous!!

I can't stand being late! Dh is always late and it makes me insane. And while pregnant I hate when people touch my belly. It totally makes me cringe!!

Ry is very easy going. Happy all the time. She's like me. Dakota has attitude big time and stubborn like dh!! Lol

Both of my kids have tracheomalacia. They are on nebulizers, but it only shows up when they are sick.
