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.

Happy Birthday Brianna & Dynisha

October 14th was Dynisha's 9th birthday and November 9th was Brianna's 12th birthday. On October 14th I baked cupcakes and took them to my in-laws house so that Dynisha's birthday would not go uncelebrated. Her Mamaw and great-grandfather were visiting, so it was a little bit of a party. Yesterday (October 9th), they threw a joint party for the two girls. They let them invite one child from school each and all the neighborhood kids they wanted. Brianna decided she didn't want to invite anyone from school. Her budding preteen years have brought about an ability to be easily embarrassed. There was family there as well. I enjoyed getting my hands on some new born twin cousins who were only 2 months old. My husband enjoyed them, too. He said he wanted to use our income tax return on fertility treatments. Yeah, right. That money's going to pay bills off. I really wish it didn't have to, though.

There was hot dogs, chips, and cake for the party goers, except the two littlest participants who enjoyed a bottle of formula. Coffee and complaining were served soon after. The other adults complained of noisy, messy children. Dynisha complained that she didn't really get a birthday party. I really thought it would be Brianna complaining because Dynisha kind of got two while she only got one. Go figure. Honestly, I thought it kind of sucked for them, too.
