Stu had to go to the firehouse this morning for the New Year's Day swearing in ceremony of the new officers. Stu is not an officer anymore but he is president of the fire company this year so he had to run the ceremony. Brandon and I went to give Stu some support. Brandon had fun running around in the bay of the firehouse and screaming as he was running but once the ceremony started he didn't want to sit in my lap. We stayed for a little more than half of it before I had to take him home. My parents came to watch Brandon this afternoon so I could go with Stu to the different firehouses in towns near ours that were having parties for New Year's Day. It was nice being out for a few hours.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
