There is no space in time quite as lonely as that after a nightmare. The house has quieted back down, after being rudely awakened by screams and it is eerily peaceful. Eerily, I say, because it seems so unnatural that the world could continue on--that people could sleep, no less--after having their world so violently and shockingly torn apart. But, they don't see the scenes replayed on the screens of their eyelids everytime they drift closed. They don't hear the sickening thud that brought an ending to every good and perfect thing in their life. There is no time when... Continue reading

Thank you Vicki! If we get a good report this week, I hope to sneak out for an hour or two and see you at BRB Saturday, since you'll be in my neck of the woods!
Thank you, Rachel!
Thank you, dear heart! I love you too!
Thanks Loren! I feel certain that his good report this week was due in great part to some rocking Gap jeans that *someone* let me borrow!! ;)
Thank you so much! We miss you too! I kept waiting to update until I knew more and then all of a sudden it had been five months--one day I hope to be the faithful blogger you are!
Thanks girl!
Thanks Nacole! It was great to see you too--even if it was just a glance!

Today is a big day--literally. I am bigger and more pregnant than I have ever been. And yet, it is barely half of a "normal" pregnancy. Beautiful comparison--Our sweet little guy at 26 weeks and his early bird sister at the same age and weight. I have been intentionally vague and guarded with this pregnancy. I hoard doctor's and specialist's advice and ultrasound photos and carry my information close to my heart. I say things like "Our due date is in January, but my goal is Halloween. Then, we'll go from there." Honestly, I have been afraid to hope. I... Continue reading

Thanks girl! I keep hearing from parents of older kids that I will "grow out of this" ;) but I had a lot of fun doing it! If I were closer, I would totally take point on his party. Have SO much fun on vacation!

Well, two years ago this day, I was sitting in a big pink chair next to the isolette that would be home to my daughter for months. At four days, she couldn't be held, but I could open her isolette door and read and talk to her. So, that I did. As I told her how strong she was, and how miraculous and loved, I hoped she would hear and that her heart would take hold of those truths and make her stronger. Well, between that (and two years working with a team of fantastic doctors, surgeons, physical therapists and... Continue reading

Well, we got sent home (HOORAY!) to wait and try to "ride out" the infection at home. We were told to leave our hospital bags packed, in case she starts getting worse over the weekend, but the doctor said, "Wow...she is awfully fiesty, even when she's this sick, so I am thinking an I.V. is out of the question." (That's my girl!) So we are administering medicines at home, trying to con her into staying hydrated using popsicles, chocolate milk, juice and all manner of sugary goodness, and giving lots of "mama care." Lots of cuddling with KittyCat and keeping... Continue reading

So I had big plans for the blog this week. There is a new layout in the works, and I had great intentions of writing posts to tell you about the new things happening. I was going to highlight my beautiful friend, Leah, and her fantastic band who just released their first CD and will likely be touring in a town near you soon. I was going to tell you about this great new feature I am proud to be a part of called "If We Were Neighbors", which will hopefully keep me blogging more regularly. I was planning on...

When we were little, my brother and I would play this game called, “Cookies and Milk” where you stood at the head of the bed and fell backwards, while yelling “cooooookies and miiiiilk.” The supporting sibling would then catch your feet and bounce you back up so that you were upright again. Over the years, once we moved to a new home and new rooms, we changed the words to see who could make the funniest combination while we fell: “maaaarshmallows and toooooenails” or “piiiickles and coffeeeeee.” You get the point. Being close in age, we were still the supporting... Continue reading

Yes Loren! Remember when I bought that nasty purple and brown cupboard with you in Durham? That's it with its new look...I keep all of my canned stuff in it. (But don't give me too many points, my actual pantry with groceries and stuff in it looks like a game of Jenga gone all wrong.) Hooray for Maddie's recital...can't wait to see pics. Thanks for reading my rants. :)
