Dear Baby O, Wow. Are you TWO already??? I’ve been told you’re too old for me to refer to you as my baby, but guess what? I’m always going to consider you my baby girl, even when you’re 60! It feels like just yesterday that I told Todd we were pregnant. Felt your first kick. […]

My Birthday Month
This year, December snuck up on me. We are selling a house, driving Lboy back & forth to preschool (which was not a long term something we thought we would be doing), did I mention we are selling a house?! And even though it’s December 12 & I’m still not fully convinced that it’s December […]
Christmas Shopping, yes Christmas…
Last Christmas was the first Christmas that Lboy actually “understood” what was happening. He totally got it. And it was fun! I had a blast buying stuff for him & wrapping it & then watching him open it all. The only problem was, I bought him STUFF aka junk, not a lot of substantial things […]

The Night Todd Proposed
Todd proposed on December 19, 2006. It was my 23rd birthday. I knew a proposal was coming and I knew that he had been carrying the ring around in his pocket for a few days. Heck, I had even booked the church 5 days before he ever proposed (there were only 3 dates left for […]
13th Birthday Party Memory
With my birthday coming up in the month of December I have been reminiscing over some of my past birthday parties. One in particular came to mind: My grandparents live on a huge farm. Their farm is the reason that I tell everyone I’m half city, half country. I know what it’s like to drive […]
