I'm back!

My little man is six months old already. I thought I would never say this but time truly does fly by. I can't believe it.. I feel like I just brought him home. Don't get me wrong I am happy that he is growing up. He is so much fun. He is sleeping better, eating better.. and furniture walking.. ya. I'm pretty sure he is going to just skip the crawling stage. He is already pulling himself up on things, hence the bruises on his cheek and forehead. 

I thought I couldn't add anymore pictures but apparently I was wrong. So I'm back! 
Chris just got accepted to UVU and he now needs to apply for the paramedic program there. We are praying that works out. He also just got a fantastic part time job at BYU doing Fire Sprinkler Inspection (I think that's the job title) and he loves it! We have quadrupled out income!! :) So he is keeping busy doing that and also applying for another part time job. 
I have started many projects that I need to finish. I started a denim quilt like this one here, and I also started this whale here. But I will do it in similar fabrics to these ones. 

When I'm not chillin' with O, I work on them. Probably why they are no where close to being finished but it's okay.  Anyway that's what we have been up to lately. :) For now that's all, Owen just woke up from his ten minute nap. ha ha

24 weeks (December 2017)

It's been awhile.
Like over a year since I last posted something here. I figured it was about time to update everyone. I announced that we were expecting a couple months ago and then left it at that. And several dear friends are asking for updates. And a lot is happening. 
So the quick (maybe not so quick) update is.. all is well! 

1. We're pregnant! (In case you didn't know). I am currently 24 weeks along with our miracle baby girl (Lucy)! We have had about 20ish ultrasounds and too many hours sitting in a waiting room to count. Being high risk is no joke. But I'm not complaining because we get to see our wiggly little girl almost every week!  When we first found out we were expecting (which is a whole post on it's own) we were given the option of genetic testing. After praying and fasting about this we decided to opt out. The test was a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) where a needle would be inserted into to placenta to test the fluid and baby's DNA and that …

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…
