♥ We Love You Grandma & Grandpa Wells

We are mourning the loss of not only Grandpa Wells but Grandma Wells as well today.  She passed shortly after 1pm today of a ‘broken heart’.  She peacefully went to be with the Lord and to be with her husband of 31 years.

Our family is thankful for the memories we have, and the time we were blessed to share with them.  We love you Grandpa & Grandma Wells!!

Grandpa Wells passed away early Thursday morning, and then Grandma followed less then 36 hours later — from a broken heart. Broken Heart Cry So sad, but amazingly sweet at the same time. Speaks stronger then any words could of the love they had for each other for over 30 years.

Love the ones you have, you never know when they’ll be gone.

Grandma & Grandpa, you will be dearly missed.

♥ Happy 15th Courtney

Happy 15th Birthday to my beautiful Courtney Lyn Westbrook!!  I love you!! ♥ Cake

Courtney you are my little Pooh bear!! ♥

At 13 weeks of pregnancy I was put on bed rest and at 19 weeks she had dropped down…we were so scared she was going to come way too early.  When I was 21 weeks along  I started to have contractions, so they put me on Breathaline to stop the contractions.   At 28 weeks, I had developed  ‘preeclampsia’ and  was now going in for non-stress tests weekly.   At 33 weeks, I was dilated to a 2, thinning, and having contractions.  Courtney’s due date was February 3rd, 1996.

On February 4th my contractions were 7 minutes apart until 12:30am on February 5th.  That is when we left for the hospital.  Once I got to the hospital I was dilated to an 8 and 100% effaced.  They had to call the doctor before they could brake my water.  Once they broke my water Courtney was born 20 minutes later at 2:38am.  As with Alec’s labor, I could not have any pain meds, which again, I felt everything.  This is when I realized that natural contractions vs. induced contractions are so much easier, less intense and a lot less painful.  Another labor of LOVE for eternity!!  ♥
