52 Photos Project revisited.

In past years I always tried hard to complete the 52 photos challenge. This year is no exception..and since were only at week 4, here I go.

Here the photos to date:

Gallery 1- Fire


Gallery 2- Criss Cross


Gallery 3- Sugar


Iris is nearly 6 months old.

Wow..has it really been that long since I have logged on. I have to do better then that. Iris Jean Maynard was born on August 25th and has been such a wonderful addition to our family. Her big sister just loves her to pieces and I am so blessed to have two perfect little girls to love.


Expecting number 3

Well here I am, 15 weeks pregnant with Maynard baby #3. Evangeline is gonna be a big sister ( we hope and pray). She says the baby is a boy πŸ™‚ we are so excited to find out if she is right in April.

Met with a Hematologist to determine if I should be taking Heparin or not. She read all my old medical documentation, Evans autopsy report plus tested me for 13 different blood clotting factors and we met last week to go over results. Every single test came back normal or negative, same as they did with Evangeline. She does not believe I need Heparin, nor does she believe I needed it with Evangeline. Evan did not die from a blood clot, there is no reason to believe Heparin is necessary for a healthy pregnancy. I honestly feel justified by this news. I never truly felt in my gut I needed it.

So far pregnancy is progressing perfectly, 15 weeks, had the nuchal translucency done at 13 weeks and things looked great. Healthy little baby in there. I can feel him/her moving around often now πŸ™‚ it’s a great feeling.

So excited to welcome another baby to our family. Keep us in our thoughts and prayers.
