A little about me:
I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

A quick shout out to...
My daughter, Kaina!
She's such a great kid! I had Kaina when I was 17 and have been blessed every single day since then because of how amazing she is.
She has been such a patient and great support to me during this pregnancy. Sometimes I am blown away at how mature and unselfish she is. So grown up for a 14 year old!
I am so lucky to have been blessed with her 14 years ago. I used to worry about how she would react to me being pregnant or if it would be a good idea for me to have another child while also raising a teenager, but now there is no doubt that this was all meant to be. If anything I think that this journey is making our family closer and stronger.
I feel so lucky to have such an awesome daughter! :o)
I love you Akaina Charisma Shalen!! XO XO XO!
