Krynn-our furry surprise

May 22 2010 my sister came over around 11am to spend the day with Tegan and I while Zach was at work. A few hours after her arrival visiting family of the people across the street rang my door bell. They proceed to explain that it sounded like a cat was stuck in under my sisters hood. Scared at what we may find the two of us walked out to her car and we popped the hood. After a a couple of minutes of following the tiny mewo we found the cutest pair of blue eyes looking up at us from my sisters engine. My sister said thought she heard a weird noise on her 15 min drive over. Shockingly the tiny 1.4lb kitten was perfect other than a few singed eye brows. After seeing how tiny and helpless she was and the stress filled life she has already had we decided to keep her. I just couldn't allow her to go to a pet store or shelter and sit in a cage not knowing who would adopt her. Even though we already had two cats and a dog and we really never wanted another pet we just had to give her a happy home. So we took her in and named her Krynn. She was meant to be apart of our family. Tegan totally loves and adores her! Non of our other animals let her touch them and Krynn excepts all the love that Tegan is willing to dish out. Tegan just wants to sit and cuddle her all day. If Krynn jumps down Tegan cries her little heart out. They are going to grow up to be the very best of friends. I never knew we needed another pet until this sweet little girl hitched a ride to my house and brought happiness to our precious little girl. Sometimes the things you need in life are things you never knew you needed at all.

Enjoy all the pictures!!!!

18 months

It doesn't feel as though it has really been 18 months since I first held my precious miracle in my arms. In some sense it feels like Tegan has been in our lives forever, yet it doesn't seem like it has been 18 months already! I know what I am saying may not make any sense to anyone but to me it makes perfect sense. I think that because Tegan was in our dreams and in our hearts for years that it feels like she has been with us forever. All Zach and I ever wanted was a child of our own and after a few years of fight and heart ache we finally had her. It feels like yesterday I was finding out I was pregnant, hearing her heartbeat for the first time and feeling her first kicks. I can remember it all clearly yet it is sort of a blur in time because it all happened so fast. I remember the day I went into labor with my little footling breeched baby girl. It was 5 days before my scheduled c-section. I was 37 1/2 weeks pregnant. She just couldn't wait any longer, and neither could we. She is all we ever wanted and more. I remember the pure shock that my tiny newborn had hit 6 weeks old! Now I look back and laugh, at the time I thought 6 weeks was soo big! I imagine I will look back and laugh at this post when she is 5. Time flies by even faster than one expects. We prepare ourselves and only dream of things to come but nothing can really prepare us for the changes that come as time rushes on. At this time last year I was the mother of a little bald 6 month old and here I am the mom of a big 25.5lb 33 1/2 in tall beautiful little girl with bouncing piggie tails. Tegan has changes SO much over the last year. While at her 18 month check up yesterday I saw a 2 year old in there waiting her 2 year visit and I couldn't believe how talkative and less toddler like she looked. It is hard to fathom my little Tegan being like that in 6 months!!! I can't believe the changes that time brings, even in a matter of seconds your entire world can change. The best second of my life we seeing Tegan for the first time...a moment that will always hold a large piece of my heart.

Paramore Concert

Last thursday Zachary, Tegan and I went up to my moms house for the day. It had been a while since I last saw my mommy so I was super excited to give her a big hug. We spent the afternoon with her then she watched Tegan while Zach and I went out. We had a wonderful dinner at buffalo wild wings(our fav!) then we went across town to see paramore in concert.

We had an awesome time out together! There is nothing like a night out with your best friend!! Fun. and Relient K opened the show for Paramore. Fun. was absolutely amazing!! We immediately came home and purchased their album from itunes and we have been rocking out to it ever since. We could have done without relient k; they were such a bore to us. Paramore was awesome to see live! Hailey is such a little hot(according to the hubby) ball of energy!! After the concert we went back to my moms where we stayed the night. It was a nice, much needed night out with my love!

We are on the fence between early early spring and nearly summer. The good ol mid west is never predictable in terms of its weather. The other week we had temps in the 80's and it was too hot and humid to go outside. This week we have highs of the low 50's and nights with frost leaving it too cold to go outside. Despite the frost our flowers are blooming and the smell of spring is in the air.

It's been a while

I know it's been a while so I wanted to stop in and let all you blog followers know that we are all alive and doing well! Life is busy and your days go by fast with a quickly growing soon to be 18 month old(11 more days!).

Since my last post Zachary celebrated his 24th birthday! Some days it is hard to believe that we have been together since he was 16 :) He took the day off from work and we spent the day grilling out with good friends of ours.
Tegan is doing great! She continues to grow like a little weed and is starting to tower over kids three months older than her! She is defiantly a Wright! She has outgrown most of her 18 month clothes and can wear 2T dresses and shirts.
She has finally broken in all 4 of her one year molars! Her vocabulary is increasing every day and she never ceases to amaze us! She LOVES her baby dolls and she carries "Ma" around everywhere. "Ma"(tegan named her) was my favorite doll when I was a little girl; I've had her as long as I can remember so clearly shes seen better days. She is constantly dancing and she loves music! I can't wait for her to be old enough for dance class.

I hope everyone has a wonderful mothers day.

Until my next post..I wish you all our love:

Time in Chicago with Tegan and Sara

On March 26th Zachary and I left Tegan at home with grandma Dee while we stayed over night in chicago. This was our very first night away from Tegan and it was very difficult to leave. We excitedly purchased tickets back in october during the pre-sales and booked our hotel in feburary so we had to follow through with our plans. I was sure to write up a nice list for grandma to follow and I walk out the door with tears flowing. As hard as it was to leave, I am glad we did. Zachary and I had an amazing time!!! We arrived at hotel indigo on deerborn parkway around 2pm. The location of this hotel was so wonderful, we were within walking distance of everything!
We went up and saw our room then bundled up and went out on the town!
It was such a blast walking down through gold coast chicago. We started our journey off by hitting up starbucks for some chai and cookies. We then went to barnes and noble to warm up for a bit and look around. I of course spent me time in the childrens book section thinking about Tegan. After we regained color to our lips we continued down deerborn until we hit chicago ave and took a nice walk to the chicago water tower.
We headed back to the indigo after looking around a bit and taking in the beauty of the old architecture that fills the city.
We had a nice dinner then caught our cab to the Eragon Ballroom. Holly Miranda and Steel Train opened for Tegan and Sara. It was an amazing concert (t&s always put on an amazing show!). After a few hours of rocking out we went back to the hotel and crashed(we aren't used to being up past 10 anymore haha.) I was up and ready to go at 6:30 the next morning. I let Zach sleep until 7 while I packed and got ready to get home to my cuppy cake! Her and grandma had a wonderful time and I am so greatful that she was there to watch Tegan for us. It helped ease my mind knowing Tegan was in her home surrounded by love and having fun. Of course that didn't make me miss her any less :( Enjoy all the pictures!!!!!


This was our second Easter as a beautiful family of three. It is amazing looking back at how much everything has changed over the past year!

Looking back at last year :) Zachary and I with our precious four month old.

This year was so much fun! Tegan is running and excited by everything! She was so happy to find that she had a basket full of goodies waiting for her when she woke up. Her and daddy opened up her basket and read her new book, ate some chocolate(before breakfast too!) and played with her new dolly that daddy designed and named Zelda.

After we finished our breakfast(and chocolate) we got ready for the day and headed to church. Tegan and I spent our time in the nursery because her "oh wow's" were a bit too loud to be sitting though preaching. After church we went to Zach's parents house where we had a yummy lunch. After Tegan awoke from her nap we went to my grandma's for a bit for more easter goodies. Around 5 we headed back home. We had a wonderful, exhausting day full of family and love.
