Carly Marie's Family

Have you met my family?

I am so blessed.

This is Sam holding our youngest. We have been married since September 2006. He is cool. I love him. Sam is quiet. He is humble and respectful to everyone. In saying that, when he is around his girls he is a big kid and he completely drives me up the wall when he decides that the best thing to do at 8pm is to run around and play chasey with the girls. Arrrggghhh!!!!

This is Scarlett. She is our first born. Isn't she gorgeous? Scarlett made a traumatic entrance into our world which left her in NICU for the first few days of her life as she was unable to breath on her own. Thankfully this little girl grew stronger and after a little while she was able to come home with us. Scarlett expresses herself through art. Her favourite things in the world are Dinosaurs, Drawing, Tinkerbell and Cooking.

This is Christian. Where? You ask. Well, he is standing just beyond the colours of that sunset. He meets me at the beach almost every night. We only had Christian with us for a matter of hours on January 26th 2007 as his soul left this world before he could take a breath of air. We have actual photos of him but they are not how I remember him and therefore I do not look at them very often. Christian has and will continue to leave the most incredible mark on this world. He is one of the main reasons why my life is as amazing as it is.

This is River. She was born 1 year and 4 days after Christian came and left. Seriously this kid is nuts. I love her to bits. Sure I could have ut up a pic of her looking all pretty and angelic but this photo sums up her personality perfectly. She is naughty, funny (hilarious actually) ADVENTUROUS (3 broken bones before her was 19 months old) Beautiful and cuddly. She gives the best hugs in the history of best hugs. River gave me back my hope.

This is Ocea (pronounced Osha) She is our youngest, born in December 2009. I have posted a photo of her looking like an angel because she is just that. A little bright spark that lights up the room as soon as she comes into it. On the week I fell pregnant with Ocea I saw dolphins at the beach on 3 nights. It was the first time I had ever seen them down there. I knew it meant something special was on the horizon for us and so that is why we named her after the ocean.

So there they are. My family. My beautiful, beautiful family.
