it's that time...

Every year we send Christmas cards and we've sent photo cards since the year we were married.  They are more fun to send to people to show them how you've changed over the years and whatnot.

This year, being Coen's first Christmas, I just cannot decide what to do.  I thought about using a family picture from our photo shoot with Britt, but I don't know if I'll do that or use pictures of just Coen or maybe have multiple pictures of Coen through the year.  I don't know.

Shutterfly offers great designs and beautiful cards (have you seen their new holiday cards this year?).  I love looking through cards and designs until I find what works for what phot I'm trying to use.  This year will be harder, because Coen doesn't really take a bad picture.

These are some options that I'm thinking about...

I cannot decide what's going to work... guess I just have to wait to see how the pictures turn out.  Either way, I'm stoked about Coen's first Christmas.  It's going to be a fun year.

I just got a coupon for $10 off a photo book and it makes me want to create a photo book of Coen's birth and first weeks.  It's crazy how it's almost been 5 months since he arrived.  I don't want to miss documenting and printing his life.  It's going to fast!

In related news... he's started saying, "dadadadadad" a lot and it's really super cute.

Oh and in other news.... NaBloPoMo is a fail, but I will be doing some crazy posts this weekend to catch up.  And I have pictures to prove it.

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.
