Missing Daddy this Holiday Season

So we are going on 4 months since daddys been gone and still have 11 more to go.

Things are a bit CRAZY as they always are. What do you expect though? We are a MILITRAY family. But with our faith and our heavenly father we make it through every time just fine. The POWER OF PRAYER!

Other than that we are busy getting ready for the Holidays. I decided to put up my Christmas tree and decorations early this year. And I mean really EARLY this year...Nov.1. I absolutely love CHRISTMAS. The smells, the lights...EVERYTHING!

The kids are loving all my decorations. And Ash is having fun braking my bulbs. Thats what happens when you have toddlers and glass bulbs! Not a good combination.

Aubryn is driving me NUTS by asking for everything this year. From clothes to bikes, dolls, barbies, you name it she wants it. But the problem is she already has everything! And every commercial that comes on shes wanting that too! Kids...You gotta love them!

The weather is very cold outside...nice and ICY! The way I like it. I love to cuddle under blankets in the winter with my kids and watch Christmas Classics. Like Frosty the snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. Those are my favorites.

This is Halloween!

Halloween this year was different without daddy home but still a BLAST. We spent that night with the Mawets and the Viners plus Christina and Pete. The kids all looked so cute and all enjoyed every minute of trick or treating. Candice, Christina and I got tired early so we took the babies Home. We are such party poopers! Sheri and the husbands continued to take the kids door to door. Back at home we enjoyed the peice and quiet while stuffing our faces with chips and dip and JUNK! My favorite when Im pregnant! LOL!

Aubryn this year was a Cat and Ash was a Bat. Costumes from Old Navy. They were too cute for words.

Pumpkins this year we did not carve but painted. Mommy didnt have patience for the mess this year. Thats usually daddys job and we didnt want to carve pumpkins with out him!

All in all we had a great October. And I REALLY enjoy the fall so much. Its my favorite season.

Another Boy on the way...Alexander James LaBossiere!

We are excited to announce that we are having another boy. Just found out in the middle of October sometime. He was not a shy little one. He made it perfectly clear that he was not a GIRL! So exciting!! Well at least for my husband and I. On the other hand Aubryn wanted a sister really bad. So she cried for a bit and is over it now.

As most of you all know I have my babies really early. TOO EARLY!! So far things are a little shakey. The baby is really low and Im having alot of lower back pain and sciatic nerve problems.

The doctors are starting me on progesterone shots every week.

Progesterone is a female hormone produced by the overies during release of a mature egg from an ovary (ovulation). Progesterone helps prepare the lining of the uterus (endometrium) to receive the egg if it becomes fertilized by a sperm. If the egg is not fertilized, progesterone levels drop and menstrual bleeding begins.
During pregnancy, the placenta also produces high levels of progesterone, starting near the end of the first trimester and continuing until the baby is born. Levels of progesterone in a pregnant woman are about 10 times higher than they are in a woman who is not pregnant. But sometimes when a woman is pregnant she loses progesterone and it causes her to go into pre-term labor. So I am just getting extra progesterone. And maybe that will help.

Hopefully Alex will stay in my belly until at least 35 weeks preferably longer.

I can use all the hopes and prayers I can.
