This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

Obstacle Chronicles 7/25/08

M spent the night last night. Before I even got up this morning they had completely demolished the playroom and Jamie's bedroom. You wouldn't even believe the mess. It's still there now. I haven't been able to muster the energy to clean it up.

Jamie and M fought over everything this morning. M took his blanket and he had a total meltdown. He was kicking and screaming in the floor.

Some interesting developments since the last time I wrote. Our potty troubles seem to have ended. He peeing in the potty standing up. I think he just had to figure out what was comfortable for him. I'm extremely happy about that.

After threatening to take away his Eeyores as punishment, they both disappeared. I think he hid them because he's not too concerned about their whereabouts, which is unusual. We've had some mad hunts for one missing Eeyore, much less two missing Eeyores. We found one behind a rolling cart in the office. He's since gone missing again.

The demands for food are still raging. Today he wanted constant food and snacks. I don't know what to do about that. He can't eat all day long. I don't know where he's putting all that food. Mostly, I don't know what to do while I'm preparing food and he's crying because he can't stand to wait.

Since M left around noon, the day was pretty easy. He played well by himself and was pretty lovable to me. I miss having more days just the two of us.
