First Post

The Colvin family started with John and Beth on April 22, 2006. We were married at Carolina Baptist Church on a perfect Saturday night and enjoyed our family and friends afterwards. We then started our long journey to the beautiful island of Maui for our honeymoon. We did not know at the time how wonderful life really was during that week! If we had it to do over, we would appreciate the time we had there a little more and relish every second of the most magnificient and relaxing place on earth!! Well... we came home and started our happily ever after life together. Little did we know it wouldn't be just the two of us for much longer. Just three short months later we found out there would be an addition to our happy little home. After John got over the shock, we started preparing for the precious gift we had been given. Pregnancy was exciting but not necessarily fun. When I was about 7 months pregnant we got the bright idea to sell our house. It would have been great had we not sold it the month before I was due. Needless to say we were in panic mode. John was running himself to death trying to get everything together and basically finding somewhere to go so we and our new baby wouldn't be homeless! Thankfully he was willing and able to do the running because it was impossible for me to do anything since I was about to POP!! And fortunately we had the endless help and support of our family and friends!! Well, on April 27, 2007, after 23 hours of labor and two unsuccessful epidurals, we had a beautiful, healthy, and of course in our eyes perfect baby boy. Everything was wonderful. John went to the closing on our house by himself since it happened to be on the same day me and John Luke came home from the hospital. We now live in our cozy little trailer home out in the country and hope to be able to build a house soon. But for now this is home and that's o.k.
