Infertility Awareness Week

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week and I was honored when Houston Moms Blog asked me to participate as a guest blogger in their series for the week.  I wrote (the short version) of our infertility struggles there and have been overwhelmed with the responses I've received.  

Feel free to stop by and read our story!



Thank you Houston Moms Blog for having me contribute!

Townsend2014 Month 3

March was a busy and fun month for us!  I just now realized since it's April 8th that I never loaded our daily Instagram pics.

Day 60: Road trip!


Day 61: Eight years ago today Austin asked me to marry him.  Best decision ever.  Today we walked around the grocery store with a toddler constantly hugging my neck so I could barely walk.


Day 62: Making faces at Mommy while waiting her turn in gymnastics.  She is so funny!


Day 63: When it's cold so you can't play outside, you just go for a ride on Daddy around the house!


Day 64: She found "my H!"


Day 65: Silly girl just can't smile for Mommy!


Day 66: This little girl is so silly!


Day 67: Best morning ever at the livestock show! 


Day 68: Watching a cooking show while running.  That's normal, right??


Day 69: The morning she wanted to put on makeup with Mommy. 


Day 70: The "I'm watching Sofia Mommy so here's my fake smile.  Please stop asking me to say CHEESE" face!


Day 71: I picked this sweet girl up today and she said "Mommy, I misses you".


Day 72: Hannah was so excited to get her and Emma dolls for their 1st road trip together!


Day 73: Girls road trip!


Day 74: Hannah's 1st baby shower!


Day 75: The day we dressed alike.  (Not on purpose I swear)


Day 76: Happy St Patrick's Day!


Day 77: No words.


Day 78: When I picked this sweet girl up she said "Mommy, I'm excited you're here".


Day 79: Ready for my first 5k!


Day 80: Happy Friday!! She asked me to take her picture when we stopped for gas this morning.


Day 81: I did it!!  First 5k done in 36 mins!


Day 82: Celebrating 7 years of marriage!


Day 83: Love this girl!


Day 84: Celebrating her first day of wearing big girl underwear!  NO accidents!!  She earned her frozen yogurt!


Day 85: What do you mean I have a lot of stickers on??


Day 86: Watching the rain!


Day 87: Watching the rain with Daddy tonight!


Day 88: Play dates make the best days!!

So that was March for the most part!  Follow me on Instagram @kelly28a

Valentine's Day

Every holiday is an event around our house, we craft and get presents, it's just lots of fun!

This year we made a few hand print crafts.  I LOVE this sign we made for the living room!  I'll bring it out every year for Valentine's Day.


We also made these cards for the grandparents and mailed them to Lainey & Pops and CiCi & Papa.  Hannah painted her hand prints herself!


We also made Daddy a card which is more like a small poster....


Hannah was dressed and ready for the big day!  


Hannah was having a fun party at her school that day!  There were several of the parents there to celebrate with our favorite Valentines. 


Hannah and her buddy Payton.  They are so cute together!


Excited about her party food!


But SUPER excited about her cupcake.  As always.


That night we went out to dinner with our BFFs, Katie, Lunchbox and Emma, it was one big Valentine's Day date.  This was Hannah's kids meal.  For one child.  Who is two.  So much food!  She inhaled the edamame as usual.  


And just for comparison (or to make me want to cry) this was Hannah two years ago on Valentine's Day.  So little!


Dance Dance!

Our girl loves to dance!  If she sees any dancing on tv she stops what she's doing and stares.  So, it's not odd at all for us to have a little dance party at night before bath time (hence the no pants, we were midway through getting undressed for her bath when she felt the need to bust a move)!

Spinning around with Mommy!



Then showing off her best moves to us!







Love her and her awesome dance moves!  She is just so funny and keeps us laughing constantly!
