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.

Update 7/24/08

I've been slacking on my obstacle chronicles since our last visit with the psychologist. I guess I am afraid that I'm chronicling my failures as a parent and making my son look like a bad boy, which he is not. He's really not.

He has a language evaluation on Monday, August 11, 2008. I look forward to some insight into his issues in this area. It seems to me that he has plenty of words, he just has trouble putting them together and communicating well. Often he has trouble explaining things, especially when he's upset.

The psychologist wants us to continue the obstacle chronicles. I wish my husband was up to the challenge of helping me with this task. For tonight, I have nothing.
