I didn't spend the day working out details for a birthday party. I didn't get to watch my son blow out his candles. I didn't get to watch my son unwrap his presents. It's his birthday and it's not fair that he's not here. I made it through the day, but it was hard. It was especially hard when we went to visit him. I shouldn't have to go to the cemetary to visit my son on his birthday. It shouldn't be like this, but it is what it is and I have to deal with this everyday, every birthday. I'm angry, sad, upset, heartbroken, jealous, but I'm also proud. Proud to be the mother of a beautiful boy who has changed my life forever.
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy on his 2nd birthday.

Definitely miss you......

My new bracelet from my parents...

A little gift for Mia from her mimi and papaw..

Visiting Connor tonight.
His little sister will never know how much she means to us....
A day I will remember and relive forever and ever....
I love you baby.
Mommy and daddy miss you and long to hold you just one more time...

She makes me wonder what my little man would be like.....

Trimmin' it up

As much as I hated to do it, it was time to trim up miss Mia's hair. She had some hair from when she was first born that was creeping down her back. I figured it was time to trim it up in hopes that it will grow out nicely! Possibly even curly?
The first "Snip" :)

GREAT JOB MIMI! Look how straight she got it!

Now it's time for her hair to GROW GROW GROW :)

Not real sure why she waves everytime she gets a bite, but I thought it was cute :)

I want some daddy!

Mia was watching daddy eat his breadsticks and he noticed she was imitating him. He was nice enough to give her the end and she got to chew on his breadstick until it got soggy :)

Shamrock Shuffle

Today I ran the 1st Annual Shamrock Shuffle at the YMCA!!! Here is some of the girls that were all there (mom, where were you??? )

I got 1st place in my age group!! My time was 26.44. I was pretty surprised with my time considering it was raining and the course was pretty hilly!!
Mia got to hang out with her papaw while mommy ran the race! She then showed off during lunch and awards :)
Cyndi and I were "in it to win it" --the contest that is. Unfortunately, some guy who had shamrock boxers and a gold beard won.......a giant cookie cake. Bummer.
Can't wait to run again with all of these great girls!!

Here are you choices of headband colors :)
Colors of flowers will vary! Depends on what Hobby Lobby has on sale :)


Ok. So I have had a LOT of requests for the flower headbands!!! If you would like one, email me at Make sure to include your NAME, PHONE, ADDRESS and the color of band/flower you would like. If you don't care about the color, you can just get one that I choose for you!! :) I will be making LOTS of these during my spring break (March 19th-28th) So just let me know and I will start a spreadsheet for your orders!
WOW. WOW. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you all so MUCH!!!!!
(I'm not sure how much they will be, but I'm thinking about charging $5 per headband. If there are requests for multiple bands per order, I'll figure out a "special" :) THANK YOU!!!!

Just an idea...

March is here, whether I want it to be or not. It's a month I remember like the back of my hand. A month of feeling my sweet boy kick around in my belly for the last time. A month to celebrate the birth of our son. A month that Jeremy and I longed for-the arrival of our 1st child. A month of hopes and dreams, sorrows and tears. It's a rollercoaster of emotions.

I wasn't able to host another 5k run in memory of Connor to donate money to the Vasa Previa Foundation(I've been a little busy with work, grad school, Mia, Jeremy & the usual household duties). So I've been trying to come up with a way to raise money to donate to the Vasa Previa Foundation in memory of Connor.
I have recently started making Mia her own little hair bows....and I got an idea. Maybe I should make some and try to sell them to raise money for the foundation!?!?! I haven't decided for sure, but it would be something to keep my mind occupied during my spring break. AND it would be a way to make lots of little girls look SUPER cute :)
Let me know your thoughts!
Here are a few that I have done so far...

8 months old

That's right. She's 8 months old. She brings more love and smiles to Jeremy and I everyday.
Happy 8 months, Mia!
(she reminds me of that little martian that played on the flinstones!) :)

Even though...

....Mia's got a bit of a tummy bug, daddy can still get her to giggle. She's the best thing ever.
