Hi there! My name is Wendy, I am 24 years old. I'm the mommy of a little boy named James. He is 3 a very active, very adorable, artistic little boy whom mommy and daddy love with all their hearts.
I am married to the most wonderful man, Brian. We have been married since August '07 and our love for each other continues to grow day after day. We started TTC in November of '09 for our second child. At 11 weeks of pregnancy, I learnt we were going to lose the baby. At 12 weeks, we did lose our little one. It was the most heartbreaking moment of either one of our lives. We started TTC only two months after the miscarriage, and after 9 months of TTC (which seemed like forever), we finally succeeded. And now my baby girl, Lylah is here
I am so happy and excited to finally be the mommy of two little ones. I think hubby and I both just want two babies, but "baby fever" may change that a couple years down the road lol.
James Joseph entered this World on Wednesday, January 9th, 2008 at 3:15 am. He weighed 7 lbs and 15 oz and measured in length at 21 inches long. He was a perfect little new born, and is an adorable, live wire today at the age of three years old.
Lylah Victoria entered this World on Friday, August 12th, 2011 (my anniversary with hubby) at 8:50 am. She weighed 8 lbs and 6 oz and measured 20.5 inches long. She is absolutely adorable!

Went to the hospital on April 19th...got scared because I thought I was leaking amniotic fluid. Turns out it was just an increase in the normal pregnancy discharge lol...I felt like a dummy, but better to be safe than sorry. She also checked my cervix, it's closed so all is well...baby's heart rate sounds good.
