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.

Bella's Belly

My Bella must be the gassiest baby on the planet.  I have to give her gas drops with every feeding.  At least Jamie is amused by her constant "farting".  She spits up all the time.  I get her all dressed up and barely buttoned up when she spits up all over.  I must change her clothes at least a dozen times a day.  I talked to her pediatrician about it and he didn't seem too concerned.  She's gaining weight.

This weekend we learned one thing that really makes her feel better.  A nice warm rice sock.  My friend's little girl has "one of those tummies" and when her belly hurts she wants a warm rice sock.  My friend decided to warm Bella up one, too, to see if it would help her.  The moment that rice sock hits her belly and she has a binky i her mouth she goes right to sleep.  It's really precious.  Now Bella has a purple rice sock of her very own and I am so glad to have it!
