So three years ago today, Benjamin and I were sealed in the Seattle Temple.
Yes, this is the picture on my header.
He had no clue what he was getting himself into…
Oh, who are we kidding… he did too!
In three long long looooooong years, we have: (In order)
Well, we moved the week before we got married.
Then: Baptized Lauren December of 2005
Found out that I was preggo with Amy Lynne in April.
Bought Blue Tooth in May
Got dragged to a car show in September. Hugely preggo. Lauren and I were bored out of our minds. Kathryn and Benjamin? Had such a blast.
Amy Lynne received a name and a blessing in December of 2006. It was very important to me that her name be on the records of the church. She was in her isolette and her dad gave her the blessing and her Grandpa Moore and Uncle Matthew assisted.
Lauren and Kathryn and Karl all received "Top Dog" award. In case you weren’t counting, this is Kathryn’s 3rd award. First for both Lauren and Karl. (I don’t have those pictures, I’ll have to get them off of my mother’s camera)
Lightning died and we gave her away. February of 2007 or was it 2006? Man, this time with this car is fuzzy.
Moved in July of 2007
Sometime in the summer of 2007, we acquired another car. 1990 M30. We fondly call her "Crush"
Went to Idaho to Silverwood and to visit Grandma Vermillion and Great Grandpa Parker. Again, very glad as Grandpa Parker passed away about 6 months later.
Found out in December that we were expecting Lily. I really thought I was going to miscarry her. I had no morning sickness whatsoever and after vomiting and migraine headaches throughout my pregnancy with Amy Lynne, I was expecting at least something.
March of 2008, I was hospitalized for a kidney infection and kidney stones. I thought I was going to die. I mean really.
May of 2008, was hospitalized for another abruption. I was losing blood. They couldn’t find places for IV’s. After many attempts, (like 15) over a week period, they decided to put a PICC line in me. I lost enough blood that I had to have TWO blood transfusions. (the day after I delivered)
We moved again in August of 2008. (hopefully this will be our last)
Got rid of my *sniff* *sniff* van. I loved her. She just couldn’t go on any longer.
And here we are, October 2008. Now can you see why it feels like forever? Oh, and it isn’t a bad thing that I feel like we’ve been married forever. We’ve just been through a lot. We both feel as though we’ve known each other forever.
Oh, and on a side note, I took Lily to the Dr today. She weighs in at 12lbs 11oz and is in the 25% for height and 25% for weight and 5% on her head. Now those are the percentages for her as though she was born at full term. Now on her preemie chart, she is in the 90% for both her height and weight and 40% for her head. She got 3 shots and 5 immunizations. She’s not a happy camper right now. She’s spending the evening on her daddy’s chest in the Baby Bjorn.
