1st Christmas Gifts

Coen will be 6 months old on Christmas.  Because he's 6 months old, he really doesn't need that many things for Christmas.  But we do have a few things on his list, that we've either talked about getting and just haven't yet or that we would need down the road, and we might as well ask for them as gifts.

What are they?

1. Money for his savings account

2. White short sleeve onesies

3. 9 month clothes or larger - Clothes/jammies - 6-12 old navy/gap, 9 + month carter, 12+ month gerber, etc... (he's got a lot of clothes, so only do this if you absolutely have to... )
4. Cloud B Sound Machine Giraffe

5. Food storage containers (ice trays with lids)

6. Books (any children's books you think are good, he has some, but could always use more.)
9. Luvs Diapers Size 3
10. Target Sensitive Wipes (purple container)
We're also searching for an ornament for our family and an ornament for Coen.  We're still looking.
Just a few things to have under the tree. Next year will be different, I'm sure! 
Merry Christmas!
What do you get for your baby for their first Christmas?

Isabelle has that Cube Learning toy (princess version) and it is great!
I love that cube learning toy. It's on Vivienne's christmas list this year, too. ;)

We got her nothing for her first Christmas. Her grandparents, of course, totally spoiled her, though :) We figured she didn't know the difference and didn't know whose gifts she was ripping apart, either. She was only 4 months, though, too. This is the first year we're really buying her some stuff to have at our house because she's finally really aware of Christmas.

From us, we are getting Annie 4 things every Christmas with the theme want, need, wear, read - her "stocking" is from Santa.
Last year (she was 11 months) the "want" was a bead maze someone had gotten her from a baby shower, and a pull toy that came free with a book, "read" were 2 Christmas books, "wear" was just a cute outfit I liked, and "need" was a new straw sippy cup. In her stocking I put a few of her favorite things at the time - a diaper (she loved to randomly carry them around), a container of sprinkles to shake, and some tissue paper :) Ha! I remember she got summer clothes, a wooden pound and roll tower, and shoes from family.

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 …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
