I knew something needed to change — just didn't know what. So I invested in me!
Leaving the NICU is just as unnerving as it is relieving! Here are a few items that helped us through the transition.
When work is "mostly" fun, it's okay to do a little on vacation!
Today is a day when moms are celebrated, while the "hopeful mom" or the moms who have lost, ache with a pain they can't express...it hurts holding it in.
Surely she's still considered a baby. I'll decide when she's a toddler...
She's attempted to eat a long-dead lizard, pine needles, spider legs, R2D2, essential oily jar bottle caps, and other things that prove she's SUPER smart.
Best day off with my two faves. We took a "holiday" from our jobs to celebrate Kyler's birthday. Love having a job that allows this freedom!
Here's the deal. I do not follow Dani Johnson. I follow God. And she follows God. You may not. And that's okay.
We're incredibly grateful for this company. Humbled by how God has changed our lives. Thank you to the many hard-working people who contribute to their success!
Shave off at least 6 months of mistakes as you start your next relationship, business endeavor, or other investment. Guarantee your success by investing in you!
"I like to smell her and listen to her hum songs fro hours. She stares at me and smiles until I fall asleep. I love Mom and Dad. I love life. Home will be my favorite."
Born 765 grams (1 lb 11 oz), now 1535 grams (3 lb 6 oz). Now 15" (born 12"). Today Mom left the freezer slightly open for a few hours...40 bottles tossed. Tears.
"Back to isolation we go... positive staph/MRSA results. Brand new hospital protocol requires it. I'm changing things around here, people."
Is there a way to earn a living by stretching? I'm so good at that. I can stretch fast and slow. I push up when I'm on my tummy. There's really no stretch I cannot do.
"No one better take my doll. She's so tiny. Makes me feel big and strong. I love her."
She has a lot of hair on her head. It's red like my Dad's. So very VERY special to me. And look at all the precious lanugo all over her body.
"We need to keep her head warm." *giggles*
video: Journey has her daddy's temperament. So far. And I adore her. Tears... Oh, those sneezes.
Her throat culture results show MRSA / staph infection.
Can't return calls or texts. Hope people understand. All I can do well is repeat "my baby" to no one around over and over.
She lost a little weight so she's back under 3 lbs (1350 grams). Grateful for her cute little kitten cries.
video: She's been handed to me 13 times, but I've never picked her up and held her, until tonight, December 6, 2014. What a JOY!
Born 1 lb 11 oz (765 grams) and 12.25 in. long, our little 24+6 week baby girl changed it all. We had no idea what we were getting into when I went in at 23 weeks, 2 days...
This post chronicles October 6-16, 2014 -- my stay in the Santa Monica UCLA Labor & Delivery unit.
People can say the kindest things. But today I want to just say that people can also say the most insensitive things.
First of all. I realize lots of people don't have a mom. Very sad. No matter when/how that loss happened, emotionally or physically...
Young Living sells an entire kit with these oils called the "Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture." My Mom has two of these kits. I'm stealing one.
I'm VERY pumped about what God's going to do in 2014. Just be open and willing, you'll see him do above and beyond what you could ever imagine!
We created a Christmas video!!!
I want to honor you for surviving your pain each day.
A personal post. Today I talked to my Mom. We facetimed so I could see Dad. He rocked back and forth and she told me he'd had a rough week.
We flew to St. John, Virgin Island on November 12. It was an anniversary gift given by my mother-in-law. TEN days at the Westin resort.
We 'should' have a 5-month -old goo-goo-ing while we decorate for the holidays. And every day.
Seniors give us much more than just the recipes. They give us the memories associated with them.
What brings you the greatest JOY? The thing you're really passionate about? I'm not always good at it, because I also find great joy in people helping me!
This is our personal story about our memory foam mattress.
