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.

I love my pediatrician. I wouldn't change for the world, but his office seems very disorganized. I know that they must be incredibly busy, but whenever I need something, I can't seem to get it. Last year when I was trying to get a refer, it took months to just get the phone number of the place they were referring him to. Now, I need his health record to enroll him in preschool. They said it would only take 24 hours, but when I called to check on it they said they never got the fax. We have now faxed it 3 times, double checked the number, and still have had no response. Hopefully we can get this cleared up on Monday because available spots at the preschool could be lost.

I've got all my paperwork filled out and ready to go, except for getting a copy of his birth certificate. I have my mother's copy from the hospital, but haven't ordered the official copy. I don't know why I haven't ever done that.
