Adoption Update & Fundraiser

You know the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, we’ve come to realize that it takes a village to bring a child home through adoption. You are a piece of our village. As we are, hopefully, nearing the end of our projected wait time for our adoption, we have felt a […]

On Due Dates and Miscarriages

I knew the day was approaching. Circled in red on my calendar, it was a constant reminder of what wouldn’t be. My momma heart was bracing itself for the day’s impact. The funny thing about calendar days: you can’t skip over them no matter how much you want to. The youngest reader in the house […]

Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

So. Jonah started playing baseball this month. While I played softball when I was young, the role of a baseball mom is definitely a new one for me. In just the three short weeks that Jonah has played, my routine has been thrown topsy-turvy and I’m all discombobulated. I also have a few confessions… Fall […]

InstaFriday 7-26-13

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday. I’ve missed it. I have found it to be one of my favorite ways to recap what we’ve been up to. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of our everyday life as well… Asher has a thing for getting in baskets. He’s such a silly […]

Permission To Feel

Life isn’t a Hallmark commercial. I think that’s why I found myself crying while folding the laundry and half-watching the television. The Mother’s Day commercials that usually leave me saying “Aww” have left a bittersweet taste in my mouth this year. For the first time, I understand what so many other women feel about just […]

My Miscarriage Story {Part3}

Four hours of people-watching and a ruined pair of jeans later, I was finally seen by an emergency room doctor. He sent me for an ultrasound–a very thorough internal ultrasound with…wait for it… my BRAND NEW next door neighbor that I hadn’t even met yet. “Hi, I’m Sara. Here are my lady parts. Welcome to […]

My Miscarriage Story {Part 2}

This post is part 2 of my miscarriage story. If you haven’t already, read My Miscarriage Story {Part 1} first. I was numb as we waited in the small waiting room for an exam room to consult with my midwife, but then a couple walked in with a giggle as they memorized the silhouette lines […]

My Miscarriage Story {Part 1}

Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break. ~William Shakespeare It’s been so long since I’ve entered this online space. I didn’t intend to take a blogging hiatus, but sometimes life happens. And then, sometimes that life event melts into another event and before you know […]

Failure to Trive {Part 2}

We’ve been walking this Failure to Thrive journey for five months now. Let me tell you, it’s not very fun. What started out as shock and denial that there could be anything wrong with our active boy, quickly changed to acceptance and answer-seeking. We’ve been to feeding therapy. Did you even know there was such […]

InstaFriday

I love Fridays and sharing a glimpse of our week through my iphone photos. Absolutely love it…it’s like scrapbooking for lazy girls. In light of Asher’s “Failure to Thrive” scare, I took lots of evidence that he does, in fact, sit in a highchair with food on the tray. We found out that homeboy likes […]
