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.

Daddy's Day

There was a big event at Jamie's school last night. I couldn't be there. This time, it was Daddy's Day, literally. The school had a Daddy's Day where children brought the significant men in their lives to school for a party. Matthew actually took off work early ON A FRIDAY (if you knew Matthew you would doubt that this was possible)!

There were snacks and games. Matthew reported that Jamie had a wonderful time. I don't have any pictures of Jamie with Matthew since Matthew was taking the pictures. Matthew said he wished he had even more pictures. He took so many that he ran out of room on the card.

My brother was supposed to be there with McKalah, but he wasn't. He forgot. How sad for McKalah. Jamie wore his "My Daddy Rocks" shirt, but he wore his coat the whole time so nobody could see it. I think Matthew really enjoyed having this moment with his bugaboo.

I took this little MPEG a few minutes ago. As you've seen me post before, Jamie always says he doesn't like Daddy and he doesn't love Daddy. No amount of coaxing can get him to say it. I think Matthew will be really happy to see this when he gets home from work.
