Happy Trans-iversary!!!

A year ago today was the day of our transfer.  A whole year people!  I can not believe how fast the time went.  Believe me when I say some days seemed to drag on FOREVER!  

A year ago today I was standing in the little doctors office making some difficult decisions on whether to transfer two or three embryos with my FIP's.  So many "What ifs?" were going through our minds and the biggest was "What if all three DO take?".  
We were all a bit freaked out.  I sat there inverted on the table with a full bladder and we all were concentrating on small talk.  Meanwhile our minds were racing with every imaginable scenario.  

I remember it like it was yesterday.  

 To think that now those three little embryos that all of our hopes were pinned on grew into such adorable, chubby sweet little babies is nothing short of a miracle. 
I look at all of the videos and pictures of those sweet little babes and I can't help but feel so grateful that all three did take.  
What a wild ride this has been, but I am grateful for every second.

Happy New Year!

Better late that never, right?  
Someone recently told me you are totally allowed to wish everyone a happy new year through January so I'm sticking with that.  
I had to get that out there before February or I'd be outta luck.  

So, with every January I get sort of contemplative.  
I look back at all my old pictures and remember all of the good times past.  
Last year, was a good year.  
A little rocky, yes, but one of the most memorable ever.  

I decided in all of my contemplative-ness to make a little video of our surrogacy journey as a little gift to my "Former IP's".  (FIP's as we surros say)  I thought I would share it here with all of you.  
Just a little tip to save you some frustration, the video couldn't be shared on mobile devices because it is 1 minute too long.  
So get to your computer and click HERE to see it.  

I'm sure you can't believe this, well I can't anyway, but those little surro sweeties are 4 1/2 months old now!!!  They are doing fantastic and are absolutely adorable if I do say so myself.
Here's one of the latest pix.
Riley, Kelsie and Caitlin

So, to all you surros pregnant, playing the waiting game, just given birth...whatever, I hope you have a fabulous 2012.  To all of the IP's out there no matter where you are in your journey, I hope this is the year for you!  Of course for everyone else, I hope 2012 is your happiest yet.
