Hello, life changers!

Hello, life changers!

"So, I've got some news."  This is what the ultrasond tech tells me when I'm in the office for a sono to determine how many weeks I am in my pregnancy.  We didn't know how far along we were since we had a miscarriage just before this pregnancy.  The early sonogram was able to tell me that I was 7 weeks along. But first, the tech tells me this sentence.  "So, I've got some news."  She was only about 30 seconds into the ultrasound and she says this.  I'm a very kind and sweet person, but the response that came out of my mouth was far from the typical, nice Amy.  I sai...

Write your birth story

We celebrated my son's 5th birthday yesterday.  I can not believe my little buddy is 5 already?!  As parents, we all seem to gush compliments about our little humans on their birthdays...  "He's the smartest, kindest, silliest, most thoughtful and loving little boy in the world!"  And my son is all those things, along with being a true patience tester, wildly independent, sometimes confusing, rambunctious crazy maker at times.

The Daily Grind of Motherhood

The Daily Grind of Motherhood

The daily grind...  Today was one of those days that felt long and monotonous.  There is so much silliness and joy to experience in motherhood and there are also a lot of moments that are dull and draining.  I had my husband snag this picture of the routine that is constant for us this time of year.  I felt like capturing the "everyday" that is our "work."  All of the little details, each effort for comfort, order, love, all of it takes energy.  I recognize this work and appreciate it so much, even if it leaves me feeling drained, lacking or floating sometimes.  A brief glance at some ...
