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.

Washed Out

Our washing machine crapped out on us. Great.

We think the transmission has gone out so we have to buy a new washing machine, right here at the holidays. This happened to our last washing machine while I was on bed rest with Jamie. When we looked up the problem it seems that everyone on the planet has this problem with this particular Whirlpool washing machine. Well, I've wanted a front loader for a bit so I think we'll go get one tomorrow. I really don't want to spend the money right now, but since I have to, I might as well put out the extra bucks to get the type I want.

We could really use a break in the finance department, though.
