Our New addition!

When mike and I got married there was no question as to if we wanted to have children, it was only a matter of when.
Before getting married we had both only lived at home, so we wanted to take a few years before trying. Enjoy being out on our own, and not having strict old school Italian parents to answer to! (sorry Mom and Dad)

After 3 years, and two miscarriages we were blessed with our beautiful boy! After going through the loss of two pregnancies, the stress, worry and many test during the pregnancy of our son, I decided that after the age of 30 I would not have any more children. Whatever children we had by then that would be it.

I was told the risks rise when a women enters 30 and then rise even more by age 35. After all that we had already gone through I was not willing to take that risk, not only for me but for our son.

So, at the beginning of 2014 the countdown was on!

My 29th birthday arrived on February 26th. I felt totally normal and enjoyed my not so normal birthday lunch of a caramel latte and vinegar soaked fries……..

The next morning I had a strange feeling, after sending Mike to the drug store I figured out the reason, We were expecting!

I’ll go into more specific detail about my pregnancy the treatments I receive and the birth story in a future post.

After months of nausea, excitement and wondering what this newest addition would be we finally got our answer! We invited our family over and had a little gender reveal party that’s where we shared the news that baby #2 was….

A girl ! (Much to her brother’s dismay!)
It took months for him to accept the fact that there was no little brother on the way, but he grew to be excited for the arrival of “his girl”!

Little Emilia arrived right on her due date of November 7th 2014 weighing 7 pounds 11 ounces, via C section. She immediately stole everyone’s hearts. Especially the one of her proud big brother!

She has made our family complete, I count my blessings everyday. I am so thankful to have two healthy, happy children! We now have our “million dollar family” and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us!

I’ll leave you with a few pictures of our newest addition and of course the proud big brother!
