How We Got Here

One upon a time there was a girl. The girl lived in a small-ish town with her two parents and three younger sisters. The girl grew up and met a boy, B, and they feel in love. In 2009 the girl and B got married.

B and the girl set off to live happily ever after, but life isn’t always sunshine and butterflies.

Late November/early December 2010 the girl’s life as she knew it changed. The girl’s parents separated and she got an infertility diagnosis. The girl was crushed, but B was amazingly supportive and loved and cared for her despite how often she was doing the ugly cry.

The next few years were ups and downs of changed family relationships, hopes of being parents dashed with each negative pregnancy test and all the other things life throws at you.

Then April 7, 2012 they got a surprise.

Um, holy shit!

The girl and B (and their families!) were pretty excited there was going to be a little nugget in their future.

The boy was super excited to find out that Nugget was a boy!

The boy was so excited he started first pumping a la Jersey Shore.

After a less than pleasant birth experience our son, D, was born.

In a split second we went from B and the girl as a couple
