There are many things I can say about myself, but if you really want to know who I am, your best option is to read my blog! I’m Sammie, a 32 year old lady, living with the love of my life, Callie
(who is currently carrying our twins) (who recently gave birth to our two beautiful twin boys), and our foster daughter Mary. We’ve been together for 5 years, got engaged, *got married on 11/1/14, and were on a mission to conceive (with 9 failed IUI’s) until finally, on May 15th, 2014 we had our egg retrieval, May 20th or 5DET, and May 29th, as I was getting cash at the Drive-thru ATM, I got the phone call that we had been anticipating for 16 months…WE WERE PREGNANT!!! On January 11th, after 12 weeks on bed rest, Callie’s water broke while cleaning house on Saturday night at around 8:30pm, and our glorious baby boys, Noah and Levi, were born on Sunday just after midnight at 12:43 and 12:44am via Cesarean Section. Now, it’s my turn to carry one of our little babies! After deciding that perhaps, I DID want to be pregnant, we transferred one of Callie’s embryos and did reciprocal IVF, and now, I am currently pregnant and expecting another Mendez baby on 2/26/16! Austin Ryan was born on December 17th, 2015, 2 and a half months premature.
We live in a suburb 20 minutes outside of New York City, in an apartment with
our rabbit (Dusty) , 3 birds (Harry, Hermione and Mama), and our kitty (Gracie). We are super close to our families, and have a tight knit group of amazing, supportive and loving friends. We love fishing, impromptu dance sessions while cooking dinner or washing dishes, avocados and mangoes, camping, our 2 3 nieces and little nephew, museums, Scrabble, ghost tours in EVERY city we visit, reading books out loud to each other, Sangria, and most of all, spending quality time together. Aside from that, I’m pretty freaking hilarious and get a whole lot of joy in making people laugh. All in all, Life is good!
