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.

McKalah's 5th Birthday Party

My niece McKalah turned 5 on October 2nd. She had her party on the 4th at the park. The kids played with silly string. They ate subs and chips followed by cake & ice cream from Kroger. The kids really didn't like the cake. I don't think any of them ate more than a bite or two. I felt kind of bad for my brother and sister-in-law because they paid extra for a half sheet cake and nobody really like it. They loved the ice cream, though. And what could be more perfect at the park on pretty day. The silly string was a big hit. Kids and grown ups alike partook of the festivities. Jamie was afraid of it at first but quickly got caught up in the fun. He always takes a little while to join in.
