Hello! My name is Elizabeth Jo. I am twenty five years old. I am married to the love of my life, Jesse. I adore him with every ounce of my soul. I am also a step mom to a beautiful little girl. She is five, and almsot a kindergartender. We have shared parenting of her, and her mom and I get along just great.

My husband and I started our TTC journey April of 2010. I never in a million years thought I would have had such an emotional time getting pregnant. After several months of trying and nothing happening, and my periods were getting worse - Jesse and I went to the doctors. After they ran some tests, they found I had a cyst on my ovary and endometriois. I had surgery on February 4th, 2011. I had one period after the suregery and then we were PREGNANT!!! :) We got our BFP on April 10th, 2011 and i will never forget that feeling of FINALLY being pregnant. !!!

I have two of the most amazing supportive parents in the world, and I love them dearly. I am also a big sister to two brothers, and a half sister. I have three neices, and three nephews and I love and adore every one of them. I am a huge Glee/Twilight/Harry Potter Addict :)

I fell in love fairly quickly, and just knew I wanted to be with him for all my life. We became official March of 07. Moved in together in June. <3 On January 27, 08 he asked me to marry him - And of course I said yes!! We had a pretty big wedding August, 29, 2009. It was one of the best days of my life ! In January we will have been together five years :) 254807_601114856010_215905082_32976213_6stepmom-daughter.pngI met Caitlyn after Jesse and I dated a couple of months. She was 13 months, old and I instantly fell in love with her. She has stolen my heart and I am so happy, that I get to help parent her. Caitlyn is very imaginative, talkative 100 % Princess! Caitlyns mom and I get along very well, and we do a awesome job of parenting her all together. Caity has a little sister named Lily at her moms, and is looking forward to being a big sister at our house also. She turned 5 in January and will start Kindergarden in the fall. Its so hard to believe she is already in Elementary school. princess.png165369_569545815620_215905082_32721497_6Caitlyn : 1 and a half.

I had a lot of doubts that the baby would stick, or that I would actually be able to be pregnant. After finally getting to see our little monkey, I am more excited than ever. I am pregnant and soon I will be able to hold and kiss my baby. :) We found out July 13th, that our little monkey is a GIRL!!!! <3 Her name is Charlotte Rae
I love feeilng her little kicks from inside me its one of the most amazing feelings in the world :)
