Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

Hello to all! My name is Natalie Caddell and I am so excited to be beginning this journey with you here on Cuddlebugs. You may remember me as a TummyTime blogger. I thoroughly enjoyed writing about my pregnancy and the first four months of my daughter Kayleigh’s life. Now that she’s a little older, I look forward to sharing my experiences as a mom of two children, Wesley 5 years, and Kayleigh 7 months. To catch up on my story, click here. I have lived in eastern North Carolina my entire life. My husband, Lawrence and I began dating in 2003 and were married in December 2005. In April 2007, we decided we wanted to try and start a family. Within a few months we were pregnant and on March 19, 2008 we had our son Wesley Lawrence Caddell. I am an elementary teacher that has taught for seven years at a magnet school. In those seven years, I have taught third grade for 3 years, fifth grade for 3 years, and Kindergarten for 1 year. In September 2010, we decided that we would like to start trying for a brother or sister for Wesley. Little did we know, how long it was going to take us! After all, it had only taken us a couple of months before. After going to the doctor and following specific schedules nothing seemed to work! We scheduled an appointment with a local fertility specialist in April 2012. We were supposed to start running tests soon thereafter. However, my period was already a few days late. We decided we would wait to start any tests until after I started. On April 29th, I finally decided to take a test. I took the test and walked out of the room. I returned in 3 minutes and I about fell in the floor after seeing the results! I was finally pregnant!!! My daughter’s birth on December 28, 2012 made our family complete. The past 7 months have definitely been memorable, exciting, and somewhat challenging! I can’t wait to share more of our experiences with you!
