Here's to one year of knowing about BOTH of you boys!!

Last year, the day that we found out with our first ultrasound, Johnny and I went to the mall (during the school day because I wasn't expected back at school for another hour!) and got pretzels. Being the anniversary nut that I am you can guess that I hauled us back there this year!  Only this year we had Colby with us and the memory of Connor in our heart.

And then a photo op with our little miracle.  

The March of Dimes posters were everywhere in the mall.  We took this as a good sign.  As we're in the process of starting IF again (well, by process I mean that we're starting to set up an appointment with my OB for a consultation so that she can set us up with a high risk doctor before we cycle to discuss our options to prevent premature labor and so we can get a referral going again so that we can visit RSC again and start the whole IVF roller coaster againseeing the MoD posters gave us hope that things will be better next time around.  We will get through a full pregnancy... well, we hope we will.  :)  (There's always that fear in the back of my head that the premature labor wasn't simply because I was carrying twins, but instead due to an IC... which scares me a lot!)

Wow. You're one tough momma to be diving in to IF so soon! I'll be following your journey to cheer you on.

Isn't it amazing to think back over the year? It never ceases to blow my mind.
