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.

A Special Evening

"Mysteries of King Tut Revealed - A Special Evening with Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities"
The Atlanta Civic Center, 7:00 to 9:00 PM, Thursday, March 19, 2009

Most of the time I don't want to leave Jamie at all. I want to spend as much time with him as possible. I want him to go out to eat with us. I want him to go to the movies with us. We like to include him in everything we do. However, every once in awhile I wish I did have some trusted babysitters.

Matthew and I are both interested in archeology and ancient history. Today we had a chance to go to a lecture from the famous archaeologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass. I didn't have a babysitter so I had to stay home. Matthew was going to stay home since I couldn't go, but I wouldn't let him. This is an opportunity that doesn't come along every day and I couldn't bear the thought of neither of us getting to go.

I'm hoping I can get Matthew to make a guest post about the trip tomorrow, but I don't know if he will. I'm so excited to hear all about it. I doubt he'll be able to tell me much this evening since the lecture was about four hours from our house, so he won't be back until about 2:00am and he has to work tomorrow. I'd really like him to put this experience in print.

Matthew was able to get me an autograph, but not a picture. I do wish he had been able to get at least one picture.
