I found out Mother’s Day weekend 2015 that we would be growing our family! I was so excited, nervous, and anxious. I was thrilled that I was pregnant again, but I knew my husband would be going on a 5 month TDY (aka work trip) coming home when I was 36 weeks pregnant. We also had some unknowns about our follow on assignment, but the stars aligned for us and everything worked out.

My pregnancy with Travis was different for many reasons. I was in the best shape of my adult life when I got pregnant and I continued working out until 3 days before my scheduled c-section. I also had a three year old to take care of and was solo parenting while D was away. He wasn’t able to be at my anatomy ultrasound to find out what we were having, so again we have the doctors place our baby’s gender in an envelope, but we decided to open the envelope when we were back together again. My jaw about hit the floor when we found out we were having a boy.


On January 11, 2016, Travis David was born and our family was complete.


Dubel party of 4!

Just six weeks later he became an international traveler when we hopped on a plane to move to the RoK.

He was an excellent traveler on the flight from Texas to South Korea.
Handsome little Travis.
