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.

Battle of the Shoe Strings

The battle of the shoe strings has begun. For the first time today he put on his shoes with laces and he wanted to tie them himself. Since it is his first time I had to help him make the loops and everything. Now he's really mad because he didn't do it "all by myself". I'm so glad he wants to do it, but it's going to take some time for him to learn. He kept pulling the laces back untied. When I finally got his shoes tied he threw a big old temper tantrum, though he helped me do the whole thing. I guess tonight we'll practice tying his shoes until he can do it all by himself. Wish me lots of luck!
