Happy 3rd Birthday to Coen!!!

Today, my son turned 3!

And can I tell you how much I love him?  He's the sweetest little boy, he's kind, affectionate, considerate and a fairly good eater.  He's a ball of energy, he loves playing, he loves running around, he loves his dog and he especially loves his sister.

Turning 3 has surely snuck up on me... I mean, it's bound to happen, right?  But still, it's here now and he's no longer 2.  Last night we were talking about him no longer being 2 today and how this would be the last time that he could say that he was 2 and really be 2.  So then this morning, when we were asking him about how old he was, he immediately said 2... So cute.  We're working on 3 and he's really good at showing us on his hands what 3 looks like.  But don't do it like an "ok" sign, you have to hold down your pinky finger with your thumb or you aren't doing it right!

We're so excited to continue to celebrate with Coen throughout today and the rest of the week!  Birthday's were a big deal with my family and I hope to continue to share that joy with our kids as they have birthdays.  We don't have to do anything really elaborate, but still, just making them feel special and for more than a day, if we can...

So, with that... Here are some pictures from his party this weekend...

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.
