Full Heart

Being back to work full time has me thinking more and more about my kids and how lucky we are to have them in our lives.  They love us so unconditionally and we love them with out whole hearts.  It's amazing the love that you can have for just one child and then to have two and just see your heart BURST with love for the both of them.

I wouldn't trade my world for anything else... It's perfect and I cannot wait to continue to see our love grow for one another as time goes on.

Coen's little smiles and laughs just melt my heart.  I can always get him to do something silly that just cracks us both up.  Right now, he's saying his animal noises with such enthusiasm and he literally will say anything (or try to say anything) that we ask him to say.  Yesterday, I was trying to have him say "sister" to Emie and "brother" to himself.  It was really cute and he was trying so hard to say them.  His word that he's really loving right now is vacuum, but don't let that fool you, the kid FREAKS when the vacuum comes on.  Even the small handheld one immediately brings out this AWFUL scream of fear... It's mildly entertaining and we might turn it on just for the reaction, but not too often.

A lot of people ask me how I get him to say those noises and how I come up with what he says... and I just say that we just make it up and repeat it, all-the-time.  I have to say that his squirrel, rabbit, fishy and elephant noises are the best.  I'll have to record them and post them so you can see the cuteness.

Emie... OH Emie.  She's just the twinkle in my eye.  She's seriously so flipping cute right now with all of her coos and smiles.  I can see her cracking up in the near future. It seems like those things are happening so fast for her, but I know that isn't the case.  For heaven's sake, she's already 2 months old!

And Coen's love for his sister grows bigger and bigger every day.  He loves her and you can just see it with the way he looks for her, calls her name out of gives her kisses.  It's quite possibly what makes me love them more and more every day.  And her reaction to his kisses and love is just priceless.  She's starting to realize a kiss is coming and that's pretty cute.  Yesterday she still had her paci in and he was trying to give her a kiss.  He tried to get to her lips about 5 times before he realized the paci wasn't moving and so he just planted on on the paci.  It was hilarious and so sweet.

I didn't think my heart could grow any more after having Coen and being so in love with him... but it did. Oh and when my husband is sweet with the kids and I can hear it without him knowing... I could just pass out with love. It's overwhelming.

My heart is just so full and I love feeling this way.

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.
