So, I am a little late in the game, but better late then never, right? Where should I begin?
Well, I guess the whole point of this is to document our life together, especially after our latest adventure...KIDS! I will give you all a brief background, although most should already know it!
Rob and I met at Saint Louis University and man, he just couldn't stay away from me =) After our time at SLU, we started a long distance relationship for THREE years. Very difficult to say the least. We were married in October of 2006 and moved to Peoria, IL. Last fall, Rob and I decided that it was time to start our family and low and behold, we found out we were pregnant in November. We were shocked and excited...Little did we know what the future held for us.
In January of 2008, we had our first doctor's appointment, only to find out we were expecting identical twins! Holy cow, were we starting our family or what???
Well, I had a very interesting pregnancy...we were diagnosed with twin to twin transfusion syndrome, which required me to go to Cincinnati for surgery. Alexandra Rose and Keegan Marie were born June 5, 2008 at 30 weeks. They were such fighters and were able to come home 7 weeks later.
They are now home, but proving to be very challenging. What a whirlwind of a life Rob and I have had and that whirlwind is going to continue for the rest of our lives!
Hope you guys enjoy the pictures and posts. I am starting this as my daily outlet from the children!
