First Steps

My beautiful girl took her first step yesterday, just a little one but it was a step without holding on! I bet she'll be running soon. We'll try to get a video or picture soon...

Johanna is changing by the day and she makes me want to be well so I won't miss anything. Right now she is my light in the dark and I wouldn't know what to so without her and Dustin.

Keller Joe Smith , January 13 2009, 7:59 am

Unfortunately due to some complications in my pregnancy, Keller was born much too early to survive at 17 weeks. The doctors assured us that he did not suffer and that means the world to us. When we held him he looked perfect and peaceful.

We hope that he is up there with his Baba and my German grandparents, and Dustin's grandparents keeping them on their toes. We told Johanna that she has a guardian Angel now, which makes her a pretty lucky little girl.

Needless to say this will a hard time for us for a little while. Thanks for all the support, We couldn't get through this without you, our family and our friends.


Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Céileachair ‘son of Céileachar ’, a personal name meaning ‘companion-dear’, i.e. ‘lover of company’

We chose the name from a source that had 'small companion' as the meaning.

He will be with us always.

It's a Boy!!! (Probably)

The 15 week ultrasound went well. I don't have to get shots (yay!!) at least not for now. We'll recheck in two weeks... But while getting the ultrasound we found out that we are going to have a boy! 15 weeks is still pretty early but she seemed pretty sure. Nobody start buying blue stuff yet (Grandparents!) We still want to confirm one more time. Here are the pictures:
