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.

Sprout Studio

We took Jamie to Sprout Studio yesterday. He really had fun. They have many play areas with different activities. Jamie spent about an hour and a half at the water table. He just loves water. We finally talked him into checking out another play area. He had a lot of fun playing at the "market". He filled baskets with lots of fruit and enjoyed putting numbers in the cash register. He even served other children and parents food. He was interacting very well. He ended up spending an hour there. The rest of the play areas got about thirty minutes of his attention. Some were neglected altogether. There was an x-ray viewer with real animal x-rays to look at and he found that interesting. He enjoyed playing in the racing area, but he didn't ride on the cars much. What he enjoyed was the brightly colored cones and the road signs. He said he loves the STOP sign. He usually loves doing crafts, but he wouldn't even go in the craft room. I was hoping he would make me a souvenir. I guess he figured he could do that any old time at home.

I found myself thinking about McKalah and wishing she were there with us. I think she would really have enjoyed it.

I wish I could take him there again. It was a fabulous place and it only cost us $9.00 to get in. It usually costs $10.00, but they gave us a $1.00 discount since it was Jamie's first visit. Unfortunately, they are closing their doors for good after Saturday. What a shame.
