Pool Time

We received some really great gifts for baby shower gifts from our friends, family and co-workers.  It's funny the things that we still haven't used or that we were really excited about that haven't really got the use that we thought they would when we received them or when we had registered for them.

One set of gifts that falls into this category, stems from this picture above.  We received this gift set from S.'s co-workers.  It was the pool shown above, 2 swim suit sets, a sun hat, and a floating pool raft.  We used the floating pool raft at 3 months, when Coen got his first pool experience on one of our wedding vacation weekends. But these other items were not used until this weekend.

We blew up the pool and filled it up (only a couple of inches of water) at about 10am, so that it had plenty of time to warm up and soak up the sun to make it bearable to get in for Coen.  The water coming out of the hose was ice cold at 10am and by about 2pm it was still only a little cool.  We put Coen in the pool and he was a little hesitant at first.  He splashed around and tried to gather his toys to play with them, but after about 20 minutes or more, he was really into it.  It was great!

The pool was a perfect size, we didn't have to worry about him much because of the water level and his ability to get around pretty good, on his own and he loved every minute of it!

I look forward to doing this more throughout the summer and maybe even partaking in the pool time, myself.  It was toasty out there and while I was half tempted to take a dip, I didn't.  But that doesn't mean that I won't next time!  :)

Hope you all had a nice Memorial Day!


Love it!!

So cute in his swimsuit and it looks like he enjoyed swimming!

We got our little blow up pool for Henry out a week ago and used it twice this weekend. (Posting pictures soon!)

He loved it, but it just got too hot out there for all of us so we were not out long but long enough to cool him off and get him tired so he took nice long naps both days! (bonus!!)

I love this age and that we can do stuff like this now. He is like a real little boy now :)

Hope you had a nice memorial day weekend as well!

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.
