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.

Yo! Yes? by Chris Raschka

Jamie brought this book home from school today. It's such a simple message on becoming friends. With just a few easy words (which is great for a beginning reader), the bonds of friendship begin. Jamie really likes it.

This is a scholastic book. It has received the the Coldecott Honor award.

There's a "mommy bonus" with this book. It's short, simple, and to the point. If you only have a minute during your day to spend reading to your child, this one just takes a minute. I'm a strong believer that you should find the time to read your child at least one book a day. This one makes that simple when you have a lot on your plate.
