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.

Egg Carton Caterpillar

I'm way past due for posting a craft so I'm posting two today.
This one is the classic egg carton caterpillar. You simply cut out the bottom half of an egg carton and then cut it in two parts. Punch holes in the top of the "head" of the caterpillar to string pipe cleaners through for antennas. I like to curl the ends of the antennas because I think it's cute. Glue googlie eyes on. Jamie made two, one with big eyes and one with little eyes. Then let them loose with the paints. Easy peasy.
Jamie is so funny. When he works on anything he has his little tongue sticking out. I can't help but smile at these pictures.
After he was finished with his crafts I let him use the leftover paints and paint a picture. Then I threw him in the tub to get clean.
