34 weeks!!

Look at my big baby boy! He is growing like crazy and I can hardly wait to see his little face! I know I keep saying the same things but there isn't much else to say. I can't see my toes, shave my legs, sit for longer than ten minutes without having to pee and sleeping is getting a lot more uncomfortable. 
It will all be worth it right? 

The doctor today said everything is going swell. He is measuring right on and other than my kidney problem I am doing pretty dandy myself. He said baby Owen is growing just perfectly and he should be here in about four to six weeks! What a lovely anniversary/birthday present to me! I turn 20 on the 11th, he should be here around the 30th and our two year anniversary is August 21st. So many reasons to celebrate these upcoming weeks. 

In other news, Chris is doing great and learning to love his job. He coaches the Provo swim team and also teaches swimming lessons. He loves dealing with the ten year old boys that fight over everything. :) 
He is almost done with his EMT class which is great because he will be home Monday and Wednesday nights. He has one more class and then he needs to take the state board to get his certification. Then he will be a certified Emergency Medical Technician. This week he also gets to do some ride-alongs with the Provo Fire Station, which I know he is so excited for, hopefully something good will come up and he can get some real experience. 

That's about all for now, thanks for reading!


  1. I'm loving your cute prego belly! I am 17 weeks, and everyone keeps telling me how much I DO NOT look pregnant at all. Oh well, I know one of these days I am just going to pop right out! And, yay for Chris and becoming an EMT! That is so exciting! So excited for you guys to be back here!

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…

1 Year

It's officially been an entire year since I last held my chunky baby. Some days are doable and some are as if we lost her yesterday. The mysterious thing about grief is comes in waves. Sometimes just small tidal waves brushing the shore full of heartache and sometimes 40 foot waves of rage, anger and depression. You never know which is coming and when. Sometimes it comes from a small argument with a sister and quickly spirals into grief.. arguments are rarely ever about what it started as. I had a break down the other day, I can't even remember what sparked it but it was harsh. It was brutal. I've come to realize that I will grieve as long as I live. That as long as I miss her and as long as I love her I will grieve.

We want her so badly and my mind can't seem to stop from thinking that. I know I can't have her here, but that's all I think about. When I look at my friends babies, at dinner, at the movies, I want her there with us. She would be the same age as t…
