Reproductive Care Center

On Saturday, we were able to go to the zoo for free for the annual patient party from the Reproductive Care Center. (The fertility clinic where we were able to get pregnant with Sam) I was in awe with how many people where there and who's lives have been touched by the help of these doctors. Our doctor was Dr. Blauer and there was literally a line of people thanking him for their miracles. (Including us of course!)

Dr. Keith Blauer

When you entered the zoo, if you were there for the party, the gave you a white wristband to wear. I was stopped by a woman who had seen one of the other doctors 10 years ago, and asked if I would talk with her sister about my experience with my doctor. I was more than happy to. We talked for about 45 minutes! When I told them that we got pregnant with an IUI they were shocked. They both said they never heard of it working and that the first round didn't work for her, so they were going to try IVF. (All with a different clinic) I explained to her that each time you do an IUI, your percentage goes up, until the 5th try and that Sam was our 2nd try. After our long talk, she felt that there was hope. I also told her that if she was thinking of trying out this clinic but couldn't pick which doctor, to look at each head nurse. Dr. Blauer's head nurse is Liezle and my angel. I told her that Liezle goes out of her way to make you feel like you are the only person in the world and gives 110% of herself!

We are so very thankful for this place and the work they do!

8 Year Anniversary Pictures and Sam's 9 Month

I can never pick just a few photos....so I'm sorry about yet another picture overload! 

On Saturday, Sam turned 9 months, so we thought we'd take our family/anniversary pictures that day too. Ever since we've been married, Aaron and I get a picture around our Anniversary, and since babies change the most in the first year, I like getting professional photos every 3 months. Our anniversary/family photos are so much more fun now that we have a child!!! (Sam's doctor's appointment is Tuesday, so stats will be posted than!)

There is no doubt that Aaron is Sam's Dad!! Sam is a mini Aaron!!! :)

I love my little boy so incredibly much!!! (And yes, my son's head is bigger than mine!)

This is part of Sam's kissy face!

Normally, Sam loves when Aaron plays with him, but for some reason he was super nervous 'playing' in the studio. I love how the photographer was able to capture these faces though!

It's been a long time since Aaron and I have been this happy!!! Since having Sam, our love has grown so much!!!
