Okay, here I go!


My name is Kelli, and I am 30 years old. I grew up in a very small town in south GA, and have one brother. All of my family still live there, but I had to get out. I met my DH, Justin (30), in college, but we did not actually start dating until after college. We were in the same circle of friends, but both of us dated other people for most of college. After graduation, my best friend got a job in Florida and bought a house there. She and her fiance asked me if I would like to live there too. So, I agreed. Well, my best friend's now DH is best friends with my now DH. Justin came down to visit for New Years Eve 2004, and we just hit it off beautifully. He was still living in GA, so we did the long distance thing for 9 months. It was hard, but totally worth it for the right person. After, my best friend got married, I moved back to GA to be with Justin. He proposed in December 2008, and we got married on July 10th, 2009.
And if you are doing the math right about now, it does not add up! Lol. Ethan was our surprise baby. We were actually supposed to be married in September, but conceived Ethan in May. I would not change it for the world though. We had a very small courthouse wedding instead of the big wedding we were planning. We did however have a reception with family and friends in September. We went to St. Croix, Virgin Islands for our honeymoon, and had a blast. I did not have any morning sickness what so ever, so I felt great while we were there. We did have 2 miscarriages as well. My first one was in August 2008, and the second in September 2010. Everytime I take birth control pills, I get horrible chest pains, and end up going off of them, and shortly there after get pregnant. I was trying to do FAM, after Ethan was born, but it did not work for me. Human error. As you can see, I feel incredibly blessed to have Ethan!! He was born on January 21st, 2010 by c-section. He was 9 lbs 11 oz, and 21 3/4 in long.
I am fortunate to be able to work from home, and keep Ethan with me. I also have a huge support system from DH's side of the family, that keep him for me sometimes as well. They joke that they should pay me to be able to keep him. He is the first grandchild, and great-granchild on DH mom's side of the family.
We also have 4 furbabies. We have two miniature dachshunds, Zoe and Daisy, and two outside cats, Dirty and Mango. There is a dirt road behind our house, and these cats were abandoned there, and we have been feeding and vetting them since they found us. They are very appreciative, you can just tell. So sweet.
We are wating to try to conceive around July/August cycle, and are hoping for an April 2012 baby. I am incredibly nervous and scared about becoming pregnant again, but since this baby will be planned, I hope it will be a good outcome. I am taking prenatals right now, and hoping this helps. I am researching how to insure good egg quality, but not sure what exactly to do. With both of my m/c there was no bleeding at all. I would go to the first prenatal appt and there would be no heartbeat. So it was so devastating because you thing everything is fine, and then boom no HB. Just got to be optimistic, right?
Anyway, I hope I did this right, and I can't wait to share pictures!!!

5. I love Football. Especially college football. GO DAWGS!!!
6. My favorite color is red.
7. I drive a Toyota 4-runner, and love it.
8. I am addicted to my son's white noise machine. I am so used to hearing it on the monitor, that I cannot sleep without it.
9. I love being outside. (When the weather is nice)
10. I hate taking prenatal vitamins b/c they make me feel bloated, among other things.

I also have a really hard time saying no to people.

Ok, some questions for Thursday:
How many children do you want to have and do you have any names picked out?
What was your favorite vacation you've ever been on?
What's your favorite book?

Pic requests for Friday:
A pic of you and your hubby in St. Croix. I'd love to go to the Virgin Islands sometime!
A newborn pic of Ethan or your favorite baby pic of him. He's such a cutie pie!

Ethan is so adorable. Loved the froggie costume. You had such a big belly and it was nothing but belly. He must have been pretty big.
I loved the house picture. I wish it would snow at Christmas here. Last time we got a white Christmas was 8 years or more ago. You all make a very cute family. Thanks for the picture sharing
