4 generations

Yes, another phone picture.  But it's sweet.

This is Coen, Mr. Hope and Coen's Great-Grandfather who is 94.  We hadn't had the two of them meet yet because I didn't want to go to an assisted living when he was little, then his grandfather was ill, then Coen was ill... So anyway, 5 months later they met and it was pretty cute.  My only problem is I forgot my camera and only had my phone.

Oh well.  Now if we would've had Mr. Hope's mom in there, it would've been 4 generations!

On a side note, Coen slept for an ungodly amount of time last night!  And he only got up once to nurse, which is normal.  But seriously, it was only once and then he went right back down.  I think what helped was my response time and the fact that he's starting to feel better.  He's still doing breathing treatments, but his cough is much better.  He's still working up the mucus, but it's so much better than it was.  I'm hoping this continues through the weekend as we have family staying with us and it would be much appreciated.  However, I know that he's a baby and things change from day to day... So I just have to wait and see.

In other news, my mom is going on a spa retreat with other cancer patients this weekend.  I'm so excited for her to go because she needs a break and a weekend to just take care of herself.  She's not going with anyone she knows and she's just going by herself.  She boarded the plane this morning and is headed to a very warm location!  I'm ultra jealous, as it's something like 20 degrees out right now.  I cannot wait to hear how it goes and how she feels upon her return.  We hadn't seen much of her this week, so we skyped before I put Coen to bed last night so she could see him.  She'll be back next week, so it will be nice to see her before Thanksgiving!

This weekend we I set up his high hair and he loves it.  It makes it so easy for me to get things ready in the morning with him in the chair instead of his bouncy chair.  The animals were just a little too close to him in the bouncy and now he can watch everything that I do while having him play in his high chair.  It's great.  Now just a few more weeks until he'll be eating out of that thing!

Have a great weekend!

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.
