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.

Loving the Girls

Jamie hates to talk on the telephone. He will not even say "Hi" really fast to his grandmother or the girls. There is only one person on the planet that he will talk to. That is McKalah. Don't ask me why, but he'll talk to her on the phone for an hour. It's so funny listening to their conversations. I'm not even sure they are talking about the same things all the time. It doesn't really seem to matter. The little booger won't tell me a darn thing about school, but he'll give her a play by play of the entire day while she rants on about her upcoming birthday party (in October, lol).

I'll tell you what, there couldn't possibly be two cousins who love each other more than those two. It absolutely amazes me. I wonder if he'll be that close to Hayden when he gets older.

This morning when Jamie woke up he told me that he loved Kelly and he loved McKalah. I said, "But who's your best?", prying for the answer "Mommy", of course. He replied, "I just love girls. This is coming from the kid who got mad at me for listening to "girl songs" in the car. I think Jamie really does lean toward girls and I think it's because he has grown up with so many girls around and not too many boys. He understands girls. He just hasn't had enough interaction with boys.
