bring it back to the blog

Well, if you haven't already done so, you need to check out Pinterest.  I've been playing around with it for about 48 hours and I cannot step away from it.

If you want to follow along with my boards, you can find me here.

Since I'm not doing much blogging, I wanted to share a few pictures from what we've been doing.

My sister got married.  It was really nice and Coen did really well.

Coen, his Great Aunt and myself at the wedding.  Sadly, I was a little overwhelmed at the wedding and didn't take any pictures myself during the wedding.  My brother had my camera and got some good shots, just none as a family.  Should've could've would've.  Darnit.

 The next night we were at another wedding and he did a great job!  Couldn't believe how well he did.  Only mad a fuss to eat while we were eating but did very well otherwise.  What a great baby.

The beautiful bride and groom.

We watched our first fireworks with Coen at the end of our street.  Unfortunately, he slept through the whole thing, but I think he enjoyed them.

Coen was held by his first young friend, Jack.  He's one of the little boys I babysit for, however, I don't know that I'll be doing much babysitting since I have my own now.  Very sweet to see the boys so excited to meet Coen.  Jake was a little more hesitant and just wanted to look at him from a distance.

He turned 3 weeks old since the last time I posted and now he's actually 5 weeks old.  Just have to get those other pictures loaded and this is all I had for right now.

Just a picture of Coen hanging out at home.

Little toes... I love them.

He told stories to his dad about his day...

And the we went to our first Clipper's game as a family.  It was part of my company event that I actually planned and had someone in charge of while I am out.  I wasn't sure that we were going to make it, but we did.  It was great weather for a game and the breeze was extra enjoyable as well.  I think the Clipper's ended up loosing, but we didn't care.  It was just nice to get out!

A picture with the mascot!

And lastly, just at home in his jammies.

We're in love and cannot believe how time is passing us by...


I love all these pics. Coen is a doll.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
