Emerson, 2 months


Can you believe you're already 2 months old and your time alone with me at home, is almost over?  I cannot believe it either.  It's very sad and yet so rewarding to see you grow up so quick. 

I don't know if it's because you're the second child or if we just know what to expect this time around, but everything seems to be happening right on cue.  You're sleeping through the night with 6 to 7 hour stretches at a time.  You wake up for a feeding after about 5 ours and sometimes not until 7 hours of resting.  You find sleep on your own and soothe yourself, when we aren't holding you.  You make great eye contact and talk up a storm! 

You have the sweetest smiles and you are so patient.

You love your big brother, even when he plants a big sloppy kiss on your face, especially when you are least expecting it. 

You're stats say that you're in the 63% for weight, 98% for length and 98% for your head circumference.  So, you're growing like a weed and when we compare you to your brother's stats at this age, you're kicking his butt with length.  We'll see how that trends as you continue to grow, but we couldn't believe those numbers.  You're showing him up, already!

Your shots might have been the worst part of your life so far.  It was a shock and you screamed your bottom off.  I was there to comfort you and luckily your tears didn't last too long.  The rest of that day was tough on you, but luckily it was only about a day of pain.

You're still nursing like a champ and when you spent the day at the sitter's house, you took your bottles well too.  It's quite the relief to not have bottle issues.  

We couldn't be more excited to see you grow up with your brother and watch the two of you bond.  It's going to be amazing.  We're so excited to be your parents and experience this all together.

Happy 2 months, baby girl.

Love, Mama and Dad

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 …
