okay enough gloom for one day


more coming soon!


I guess this is just an emotional day for me. My friend Heather who was part of a November mommies group with me while we were pregnant gave birth to her beautiful and perfect and yet dead baby Grace last year. Just four horrible days before Macy Grace was born. She has finally been able to put an ending to Grace's story and you can read it here.

These women need our love and prayers. Share it.

tough stuff.

I've linked her blog before here and here. Her name is Brook. She lost her twins after they were diagnosed with Werdnig-Hoffman Disease back in January. I'm follower on her blog. I'll be honest. It's tough. It is emotionally difficult to read what she writes. But I have to. And that is why I link her here. She needs support. She has turned to the internet to blog and write and express herself. It's great therapy. Everyday I can't read her blog. If I'm having a rough day and emotionally I'm not ready to read, I don't. But I go back and read and cry and read and pray. I thank God for my baby. I thank God for life. You never, ever know when it will be over. She didn't. And then it was. So, I encourage you to click on over there and leave her a comment. She doesn't know you. She doesn't know me outside of blogville. But she needs love and support. And love shows no boundaries. Even when blogging.

Sweet Girlies

I am refusing to look at any pictures that involve
a pumpkin patch
or a child with a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch.

I will decide at a later time if I want to share why.

That's all.

some cruise pics

I've been going through my cruise pics and here are a few of my favorites from my Canon point and shoot camera. Being obsessed with photography and a huge critic of my own skills for some reason I feel a need to preface that these are straight off the camera snapshots from the trip. Sometimes its nice not to lug the big camera around and to just take simple snapshots is important to me. So here are a few.

One of my favorites. Not sure if its because Macy's face is darling or that pup pup was right there in front with her. This was her look the entire week, she loved the cruise. She was so excited to be in Cozumel!

I have more, I'll add as I go through them. We had a great time and posting these makes me sad. It went by way too fast.

little baby flower

I finally bought lil love her Halloween costume. It's not what I had originally planned for but the more I thought about it (and I was really indecisive!) I decided a flower would be cute. Plus, when else is she going to have NO say in what I dress her as? We have plenty of years for bumble bees and lady bugs.
Here's the charming little outfit

Took Macy Grace took the dr today (more on that later!) and she weight 21 lbs 12 ounces! She's a piggie!

11 months

Lil baby love,
This is a couple of weeks late, but the day you turned 11 months we were franctically packing for your first cruise! Yup, at 11 months you went cruising! And loved it and did so well. A few things I'll mention then save the rest for your birthday letter.
You stand all by yourself now and try to push yourself up into the standing position from the floor.
You wave bye bye to everyone so well.
You have fallen in love with your lil stuffed black puppy dog. You can say puppy and know exactly what it is that you are wanting.
You eat mostly anything that we give you and are a great eater.
You have 3 teeth, two on bottom and one on top.
And you have the funnest personality. It is so daring and cute. We have a blast with you and love being your mommy and daddy.
Macy Grace I love you so much and everyday more and more.

PS - I really don't know for sure what you weigh! Daddy takes you to the dr and doesn't write it down! I think you weigh 19.8 lbs and are around 27.5 inches long.
