Coen, 3 months

Dear Coen,

Can you believe that you're already 3 months old?! We can't. It makes me a little sad to see you grow so fast because it reminds me how quickly I've forgotten how small you were when you arrived.





::Weight:: Quickly approaching 14lbs, but we'll see for sure at your 4 month appointment in October.

::Likes:: Bath time, taking walks, the moby wrap, riding in the car, being held, laying in your crib and listening to the crickets, laying on the floor and exercising, your swing, your bouncy chair with toys on it, Larry the lion, your nuk pacifier, puppy kisses and rolling over.

::Dislikes:: Being on your tummy for too long, hiccups... darn it!


This month has been one of the most enjoyable because of you're interacting with everyone so much more and have so much more to say, now that you have really found your voice. And everyone that meets you loves how smiley you are. It's like we can finally "communicate" and "talk" to each other rather than having the conversation just be one sided.

You're such a great baby that you've made the decision to try again very easy for your dad and I. We haven't nailed down the date exactly, but we're looking forward to bringing you some siblings in the near future.

The newest things for this month are that you are rolling from your tummy to your back, with little to no practice! You are also drooling like MAD and it's supposedly because your teeth are moving, but not coming in just yet. Still have a few more weeks before that happens.


Your dad is spending a lot of time away from the house with makes him sad because he loves you so much and wants to spend time with you. He's only coaching football and then he'll be done, so soon, you'll have plenty and baby/daddy time.

You're eating so well now, still nursing at home & taking bottles at the sitter's and sleeping almost 7+ hours every night. It's a dream come true, I just hope the trend continues. Last night you slept about 8 hours and I still was up a few more times just to make sure you were okay and I was hearing you through the monitor.

You love your sitter and I'm pretty sure that she loves you too! You've made some friends there and come home so happy every day after spending your day with everyone. You also just stare at me when I pick you up because you love me so much and that just warms my heart, so much.

You're wearing some 0-3 clothes still but you're wearing more (carter's) 3 months and some 3-6 month things. It's fun to dress you in some new options and put more of an outfit on you, rather than just a onesie.

Your most favorite thing to do is just lay on a blanket (on the floor) and kick around. It's so fun to watch you go to town, but it really is exciting for you and you love it!

Oh... and your thumb. This is something that you really only do when you're trying to soothe yourself to sleep. I have to say that it might be one of my most favorite things that you do, aside from smiling. It's just so darn cute. I love it.

Thank you for being so good to us and letting us enjoy every single second that we are with you. You're amazing and we love you to pieces.

Happy 3 months (1 week and 2 days), Coen!

We love you so very much,

Mama & Dadda

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 webmd.com 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.
