weekend firsts...

  • 1st (first)... Coen ROLLED OVER!  I'm not kidding.  We were at my parent's house hanging out with him on the floor just exercising and we flipped him to his belly and before we knew it, he was on his back.  He did it two times and then he was just mad, so we stopped.  To ensure it wasn't a fluke, I tried it again yesterday.  And what do you know, he did it twice yesterday too!  So. Freaking. Cute.  I cannot believe it!  I know that going from your tummy to your back is easier than your back to your tummy, but it's progress.

  • Coen had his first visit to Talitas.  He was great!  It's a casual mexican place, but he still was alert, awake and happy the whole time.  The exciting part about this was I was able to eat my meal without holding him through it.  What's special about Talitas?  My parent's have been going there for about 20 years and we just really enjoy it.  I cannot wait to go back!  I just love their baby corn nachos and avacado salad.. YUM!
  • Coen also experienced his first tailgate!  It was a hot one, but luckily the game was at 12pm so we didn't really spend much time at the tailgate.  I think he had a good time and enjoyed visiting with a few of our friends and just taking in the whole event.  He was so good, too.  Just a happy baby.

  •  He also has officially found his thumb.  It isn't always the first thing that goes into his mouth, but once it's there, he loves it.  He's still learning how to control his hands, fingers and motions, but when he gets his thumb in there, he likes it more than his pacifiers.
Happy Tuesday!

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.
