pregnant & nursing, part 1

So, before we even knew we were pregnant, I had gone to the dentist for my check up.  I had to update my medical form and since I was pregnant the last time I was there and now I'm nursing, it looked as though I was both.  Pregnant and nursing.  But I joked that while it looked like it, I wasn't.  (ha ha ha, I thought.)

While there for my checkup and bi annual cleaning, they found two spots on my teeth (thank you chocolate/peanut butter/reece cup craving need while pregnant) and they told me that I'd have to come back to get them filled in.

Okay, no big deal.

Well, from the time that I had been there for the cleaning to the time I had to get my spots filled, I found out I actually was pregnant.  So, when I went back in, I had to say... "Remember last time, when I joked that I wasn't pregnant and nursing and only nursing?  Well, I'm going to have to change that to both pregnant and nursing, because this time, I am and I'm not joking."

From that moment on, it was just hilarious.

Questions went like this...

"Wow, what did you do?"
"How did you find out?"
"Was it planned?"
"How many children are you wanting to have?"
"You're still nursing?"
"How did you tell S?"
"Do your parents know?"
"What do they call that?  Irish twins?"
"How are you feeling?"
"Are you excited?"
"Will you be finding out the gender?"
"What are you parents going to think?"

And every crazy question, aside from these that you can think of.  We were all laughing, not only because I was still in shock, but they were all in shock as well. 

I plan to answer all questions, however the majority of you know what our family plan was after we had Coen and the things that I was worried about happening, after our pregnancies in 2010.

It's been tough being both a pregnant and nursing mother, but I'm doing it, for as long as I can and I'm trying to take every measure I can to get through it and hopefully not have to take a break from nursing/pumping.

Call me crazy, but it's just the best for all of us.

I am SO happy for you. :)

And I was pregnant and nursing, too. It's TOTALLY do-able.

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 …
