Can You Help?

There are so many wonderful couples waiting patiently to adopt in order to start their own family.  After struggling with infertility for over 6 years before we got our miracle, I feel like I can relate.  I wanted to highlight a couple, Mary and Merrill, who are looking to adopt and see if anyone can help.  If you know of someone who is pregnant and thinking about adoption, please pass on their profile.  Every little bit helps!

RR’s Newborn Photos

 I have had these done and ready to go forever ago, I just haven’t found the time to blog them.  Here is my baby at only a week and a half old.  Oh I can almost smell his newborn breath again.  Sigh. 



I tried in vain for hours to get him to curl in a ball for me.  This was the closest that I got. 



He was born with monster feet.  Look how long those things are!


A few things I love about this picture:  1st, look at all that beautiful hair he had, it has all fallen out now and I miss it.  2nd I love how at a week and a half he is trying to hold his head up.  And 3rd, I love his soft little newborn hair on his shoulders and how the light is landing just right. 



Me and my boy.





So tiny on Daddy’s chest. 






I plan on getting this blown up big to hang in my house.


I hate clichés but honestly, they really do grow up so fast. 

We Did It

We made it through my first day back at work.  RR did much better than I.  I cried when I left him swinging happily in his swing.  I stared at his picture all day at work.  I missed him like nothing else in the world.  But I did it.  Only a few more months.  Please pray that my husband can find a job after he graduates so I can stay at home and raise my son. 

Back to Work

My 12 weeks are up.  It went by too fast. 

I have to go back to work tomorrow.

  I am sad.  Heartbroken actually. 

I didn’t think I would ever have to work after I finally had a baby.  Life is funny that way, it seems to have its own plans for my family.

I am blessed to have had 12 weeks paid maternity leave.

I am grateful that I am able to provide for my family financially.

I am grateful that by my working I am able to having health insurance for my family.

I am grateful for my beautiful little home my job affords us. 

I am grateful for food on our table and bills that get paid because of my job. 

I am eternally grateful and thankful that my darling cousin Amy will be the one to watch my son for me. 

I am blessed that my baby gets to stay in his own home while I am at work. 

I am blessed.
