I always knew I was going to have a Harry Potter nursery. I have always said, if I’m going to be in there at 3 am changing a poopy diaper or soothing a crying baby, it better be my happy place :). Luckily, Paul likes Harry Potter too so he doesn’t mind! Another thing about… Continue reading A Nursery for Two
Well, it’s been a few weeks since we’ve given an update on our little guy. Generally, I’ve had a major lack in focus these past two and half weeks so trying to get anything done has been a hassle. Which is not normal for me. I am used to making my to-do lists and checking… Continue reading 35 Week Bumpdate!
Cora was born at 36 weeks 6 days. But she was born still, “sleeping”. The exact date of her passing…I cannot be sure. That unknown has haunted me for the past 10 months. How could I, her mom, not know when she died? HOW? I still have trouble wrapping my brain around it. It hurts.… Continue reading Month 10: Past the point of loss.
Today we hit 31 weeks with Crockett! Last week (at 30 weeks), we had two more appointments with our regular OB and specialist. Which means two more opportunities to see our chunky monkey :). Both appointments went really well, great in fact! At each appointment we have a sonogram done but both sonograms are looking… Continue reading 31 Weeks: Is this your first?
I was not sure what to write about with this month falling in January. My only resolution lat year was to have a baby. Well yes I did have a baby but she was not alive when she was born. So, this year I will have the same resolution, just now need to add the… Continue reading Month 9: A Portrait named “Cora”
We have officially made it to the 3rd trimester! I am dancing while I type these words. I have not had a threat of pre-term labor but it still feels like an accomplishment to get to this point. We had two more appointments this week, one with our regular OB and another with the specialist.… Continue reading 28 Week Bumpdate
Okay this is technically a 25 week 5 days bumpdate. Which is basically 26 weeks so I should probably change my title but I’m too lazy :). Last update was our 20 week appointments. Since our 20 week appointment we have reached a few more milestones! VIABILITY!!! 24 weeks is viability. Reaching this week means the… Continue reading 25 Week Bumpdate.
8 months seems impossibly long and incredibly short. This holiday season has come on fast and at times it has been overwhelming. It feels like I was just writing about month 7 but the nothing, not even the holiday hustle, stops for grief. As I wrote last week, we’ve had some rough days this holiday… Continue reading Month 8: Remembering You
This past weekend, we busted out our Christmas decorations & Christmas Spotify playlists. Naturally, Kelly Clarkson is at the top of my playlist along with Pentatonix, NSYNC, Christina Aguileara, & Mariah Carey. If you do not know my age…I think my playlist will give it away. If only they had Spice Girls Christmas carols! Okaaay,… Continue reading Let your heart be light.

Whether its losing a parent, spouse, friend, grandparent, pet or in our case a child, it is always daunting to think of a holiday gathering after a loss. This time last year, we were dreaming & musing… Continue reading A Thankful Heart After Loss
