My very first Blog post...

So this is my very first blog post I guess I can start with a little bit o' history about me, my life and my family. Uh were do I start.... I was born in July 5, 1981... okay maybe that is a little to far back into my history.
Well David and I met in High School when he was a freshman and I was a sophomore. We basically had our own separate lives throughout high school although we did hang out sometimes. We never dated (although a lot of people thought we did or should have). We dated other people and on June 19, 2000 I gave birth to my first Child Zachary Tyler, Sadly he was born still and never took his first breath. After that Zachary's father and I no longer got along and less then a year after Zachary's death we broke up. Me and David began talking again (after 2 years of not speaking) and We hit it off right away and began dating July 12, 2001. Things were wonderful! We started discussing marriage and children right away and became pregnant with our first child in 2002, Devin Pauline was born 3 weeks early on July 6, 2003 and David and I were married just 6 days later on July 12, 2003. About 9 months after Devin was born I was fired from my job and became a stay and home mom and a full time student (I had already been going to school full time before that) Finances weren't great but we managed what we could. Devin had chronic ear infections as a baby. In June of 2005 David switch jobs and started working for a wonderful company and its been great ever since. In July of 2005 the day before Devin's 2nd birthday we found out we were pregnant with our 2nd child, that same month I graduated from College with my Associates in Applied Science and Devin had Ear tubes placed for her infections. On March 16, 2006 Brooke AnnMarie was born into our family via all natural delivery (no med's at all, that was a very painful delivery but well worth it), Unfortunately she was born with club foot so we were going to the orthopedic surgeons weekly for the first 2 months of her life. at 2 1/2 months she had her first surgery to release her heal cord and it was a success, she continued to wear a special shoes with a bar between them for 6 months and after that graduated to a one leg brace she wore that for another 6 months and then graduated to a plastic brace which she now wears just at night (but still visits the orthopedic surgeon every 6 months for check ups). When Devin was 4 she had to have another surgery to replace her ear tube that had fallen out and at the same time they decided to take out her adnoids, since then Devin has had no problems with ear infections! The day before Brooke's 2nd birthday we found out we were pregnant with our 3rd child, and on November 11, 2008 Kara Jennifer was born. The past year has defiantly been an eventful one since Kara was born. We are currently living back with my parents trying got save up some money to buy a new (bigger house) to hold our growing family. Its been great being here and even though a lot of people might think that we would have issues we have yet to have any problems.
