June so far.

I have been told I am terrible at updating my blog so I am going to try to be better. So far the month of June has had it's ups and downs.

 At the end of May I was told I had to stop treatment  for two weeks because I had devolped a large cyst. I was put on birth controll for two weeks to try and shrink the cyst. After the two weeks I went back in and thet found I have three large cysts and about ten smaller ones. They said the smaller ones could be old follicles(ege sacks) and they should obsord with in the month. As for the larger ones they said those were caused by the meds I was on and that we would need to take a break from all fertility treatments for a while, I was heart broken. Two times in a row I had to stop treatment. Brent was good at trying to comfort me and telling me it would all work out. SO there will be no baby Lewis for a while......but don't worry we are not givng up:)

The rest of June has been full of fun. We took Reg to the fair where we ate greasy food, rode the carousel, and looked at model trains. The kid was in heaven. Then this past weekend we decided to take Reg on his first camping trip. The campsite had a train, carousel, ice cream parlor, lake and so much more. Needless to say we all had fun and enjoyed ourselves. Reg loved eating s'mores and sleeping in the tent. It got a little cold at night so now we know we need to pack warmer clothes. I was glad we all had fun and I can't wait for more family camping trips

Still Alive

So it has been brought to my attention that I have not posted since last year so here we go.

We went back to AZ for two weeks, and when we got home Reg was sick with a double ear infection and a bad cold. Then we celebrated Christmas and New Years and enjoyed the cold weather.

Brent turned 27 and I turned 25. We are officially and old married couple. At the end of the month we surprised our families and flew into AZ for a family reunion courtesy of Brent's parents. It snowed here in VA and we all enjoyed playing in the winter wonderland.

This was our first month in the new year that we did clomid. I had done it in 2011 with no luck.  Needless to say it did not work for us this month either.

Brent and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary. We decided that we would take a trip later in spring and have a family member come out to watch Reg and Charlie. This month I did clomid again in prep for an IUI cycle.

We did an IUI cycle with 3 follicles and 25million sperm.(TMI) After a long two weeks we found out we were not pregnant and the doctor I had been going to was no longer taking out insurance. After a rough couple of days I pulled myself together and found a new doctor. We will now be going to Shady Grove Fertility Canter. We have met with the docs and are all ready to do one last try of IUI with injectable meds this time:) We also took Reg to the circus and he LOVED all of the animals and the clowns.

So far this month has been an adventure. Brent came down with a bad sinus infection and pink eye just days before we were leaving for Jamaica. We got him on meds but still the trip was more relaxing than play. I was a basket case the first few days leading up to the trip because I was going to miss Reg so much. We flew out Brent's sister Sarah to watch Reg and then we were off! Once we landed in Jamaica we were trying to get money out of an ATM and thought the machine ate our card. After 10 or so mins we got it back and headed off to the resort. We ate fresh fruit and bbq at least three times a day. We also went snorkeling off the reef in Montego Bay and has fish swim right up to us. The water was so clear and beautiful it seemed unreal. We were sad we had to leave but we so excited to get back home. When we got home Reg seemed a little under the weather so I took him to the doc and he has ear infections. He is on meds and we are hoping he will be all better for his birthday on Saturday. Can you believe he is going to be two?

New Year

So I thought that if I wrote down my goals for the new year it might help me accomplish them so here we go.
1 Get Pregnant
2 Read Scriptures at least 15min each day
3 Potty train Reg
4 Go on a fun family vacation
5 Go to the Temple more
6 Get down to my pre baby weight
7 Have more date nights with Brent
8 Do more sewing projects
9 Start running and possibly run a half marathon.
So these are my goals for the year 2012. I will try yo keep you updated on how I am doing.

In other news Reg has been sick for about three weeks now. He has been cranky, sleepy, and hasn't been eating anything. So today I took him to the doctor and they said he has two huge ear infections. My poor baby. I felt like a terrible mother. I mean he wasn't pulling on his ears or anything so I thought it was just a cold. so he is on medicine so hopefully he should be better by Christmas.

Yes I know

So I know I have not updated in a VERY long time so here we go.


It was hot and we went swimming just about everyday. Aunt Sarah came to visit and Reg enjoyed himself. We went to D.C. everyday and saw a lot of fun stuff.


Brent worked the night shift a lot so it was just me and Reg. We went shopping, read books and took naps. Reg got really sick and had a fever of 103 for almost 24hours. I was a little scared and since Brent was working nights I was left alone to take care of Reg. Needless to say I let Reg sleep in our bed so I could keep an eye on him. We also had a 5.8 earthquake and a hurricane in August. We made it through so now I know we can do anything.
End of August
Well we did it, WE MOVED! We are now in a 2bedroom 1 1/2 bath townhouse and love it. There is so much space and we are so close to TWO different parks. My mom was here during the move which was AMAZING. Brent and I moved almost all of our stuff down the 3 flights of stairs (Did I mention I have been working out) and my mom watched Reg for us. While my mom was here we took her to D.C., Arlington and The Battle of Bull Run. It was so much fun to have my mom here.


So far it has been a great month. The weather is great and Reg and I are at the park almost everyday. Reg walks like a pro now. He does not really talk yet but he does point to things and grunt and if you ask him where is the dog or to get a book he understands. We are loving our life out here on the east coast but can't wait to go home and visit for Thanksgiving.

Where's Waldo?

Here is the proof that Reg can walk!

Tuesday, July 19, 2011


Ok I know I have not posted in a very long but right now I am in NEED of some advice. So Brent and I do not like living on the third floor and wish we would have taken more time to find a place that we really love. We have been looking around at places to rent and counting down the months until our lease ends. Recently a family in our ward announced that they would be moving and that there three bedroom town home would be up for rent. When I heard the news I asked how much they were asking for rent and was excited to find it was about the same as our apartment. (Having a town home rent out for about the same as an apartment is crazy in this area) So I asked Brent if we could break our lease to move. He was not into it at first but then realized that it was a steal. So I went and talked to our leasing office and found out if we break our lease we are responsible for the monthly rent until they can rent it out to someone else. Now all my hopes and dreams are crushed. The people in the office said that a 2bed 2bath usually rents out fast but there is no guarantee. So should Brent and I move and hope someone will move in here or should we just stay?

Oh how he is growing!

So I am so bad at blogging. So much has changed since my last post.

First I am doing between two to four haircuts a week! YAY for extra money and for doing hair. Second, drum roll please............REG CAN WALK! Yes I know it's sad, exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. He can stand all by himself and takes between five to ten steps all by himself. Every time he does it I get all excited and start to shout and clap my hands. This puts a HUGE smile on Reg's face and makes him so happy. Me and Brent will make him walk to us to get a treat and he loves it. I am so excited to see Reg grow and develop it makes me so proud and excited to see what the future will bring. Third, we are finally going to have visitors. Brent's parents are coming this weekend and we could not be more excited. We miss our families so much and can't wait to finally see them. In July Brent's sister Sarah is coming to visit and then in August my mom will come. These next couple of months are going to rock with all the company we will have. Last I just got in some super cute purses. I am sure if you would like one but don't want to pay for shipping one of our family members would be happy to bring it back to AZ for ya. (PS The Red one is to DIE for)

I will post some pics and video of Reg walking as soon as I get some!
