Pinhole Press

I keep saying I'm back but...I kind of have a love/hate relationship with my blog. I hate that it takes up time (when I actually post something) but I love being able to write/type/talk and keep a journal of our life. I guess that was my way of saying I really want to keep blogging but it will happen when I'm not chasing Owen. 

We've done some fun activities so far this summer. While Chris is busy at work, we go play! We went to the Hogle Zoo and the Living Aquarium last week. I have maybe three pictures combined. I don't have a camera yet. Dang it. But Owen loves to look at animals and had a blast at the zoo. We also got the Pass of All Passes which includes the Seven Peaks Water park and lots of other game center places. We are so lucky to live in a place where there are so many things to do and see. I would not know how to entertain my kid if we lived in Mesquite. (Props to you moms who come up with things to do everyday!!)

We went hiking up the Grotto. Oh how I don't like Owen's hat. (So creepy)

 We also met up with some old friends that we lived with in Hawaii for a picnic. Owen could not contain himself! He loves pizza!!

 I have an overload of pictures coming. I know that should not make sense since I just said I don't have a camera. These were taken from Chris' awesome phone and I am just now getting them.

I found this site on Pinterest called Pinhole Press. It's wonderful! I wanted to make a family picture book for O but didn't want to hand make and take a lot of time on it so I opted for this. All I had to do was put the pictures and names in. So, so cool!! Check it out!!

Some of these pictures are a little old but I still love it and so does Owen. (Can you see the teething baby marks on the top left?) 

Chris' parents

My ma and pa

Our missionary man!

Becca no longer has braces. YAY!

Shannon was probably 9 months pregnant when I started the book. 
So now we are missing baby Issac.

Pinhole! It cost me about $30..including shipping and handling. So worth the money! This is the one thing he will look at for longer than five minutes. It's great for sacrament meeting.

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…
