WELCOMING OLIVIA!



We got the call we had been patiently waiting for on Monday. Paul and I drove out to Twentynine Palms that night, and made it to Jessica when she was dilated to six centimeters. By 4:16 am Olivia Kerrington came into this world weighing 7lbs: 5oz.. and measuring at 19.9 inches long. Paul and I are so blessed to be a Uncle and Aunt to such a beautiful little girl. Jessica did absolutely perfect delivering her, and was able to talk to Jon more then what was anticipated. Congrats to both of them!!!

LOVE FROM MY HUSBAND!


For my birthday, Paul had a bouquet of flowers sent to the house. In the center was a pink rose and a white rose representing my Mom and I. This year is her 2nd anniversary. We miss her everyday!!!!!! I am blessed to have such a loving and thoughtful husband.

ARMED FORCES PARADE MAY 17TH










This year was " MARINE CORE YEAR" for the parade. My sisters and I were there at 10:30 am to get the best of seats.. and we did!!! We waved our Marine and American flags proudly as we watched the parade. I made sure to take lots of pictures to send to Jon. We kept the thought of him and everyone else that protects our country close to heart. " We love you Jon, come home safe! "

SIX MONTH CHECK UP : May 16th

I already love to suck on my thumb!!!
As of today, I am 26 1/2 weeks. Today's doctor's appointment was specifically for our Cole Michael. They measured his growth, and shared that he was 2 and 1/2 pounds. Everything looks great and Paul and I are getting so excited as our due date approaches. Next month we start our birthing and breast feeding classes. In this picture you can see his head on the left side .. you can also make out his nose and they caught half of his body.
