Three Years Later

Three years ago I walked into an ultrasound imaging center to get pictures of my baby. She was being a stinker last time so we had to come back to try again. My husband and her big sister were with me in case we couldn’t get a picture we at least got to see her […]

JaMonkey’s Last Day of Kindergarten

I’m so proud of this girl. She has blown me away with how much she’s learned this year. She reads me stories now before bed time and asks us a million science questions. She wanted to be a teacher most of the year but towards the end it change to a veterinarian or a doctor. […]

Celebrating an Amazing Year

One year ago from the moment this post was published our world was scary, chaotic and changed forever. From your unexpected delivery. After a month in the NICU due to being premature and with SVT you finally got to come home. It became apparent that it was where you were meant to be. Getting lots […]


Why isn’t this stopping? #TodayIStheDay #PrayForNewtown #CTShooting

This morning I watched online as reports started flooding in about gunman entering an elementary school in Connecticut. As it stands 27 people are presumed dead. 18 of which are children. Why are we still selling guns to just anyone that comes in and waits the time period? Why are our children and loved ones […]

This Preemie is Catching Up

I'm a growing girl

Growth Spurts Suck, Sometimes

They happen ever couple of months, a big growth spurt that causes schedules to shift and everything to be thrown off balance. With that said this week is the week from hell. This growth spurt has triggered non-stop eating. If she’s awake she’s hungry. If she’s eating, she’s puking. (Did I mention reflux sucks also?) 15 […]


I Have a Mommy’s Girl

I’m writing this with a huge grin on my face. Not only because I have a Mommy’s girl but because I got great news at the cardiologist this week. First an SVT update. We haven’t had a single attack since a week before leaving the NICU. We are now at the 4 month old mark […]

Cloth Booty

Entering into the World of Cloth Diapering

I’ve been buying cloth diapers now for a few months. One type here, another there. But we have yet to use them because I had so many earth friendly disposables sent to me that we just hadn’t tried them yet. I’ve got everything washed and ready. We’ve just been waiting. Well I only have a […]

The Heart that Sibley Heals | Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

When an ultrasound tech tells you to go to the hospital, you panic. When you ask if we should go to your “delivery” hospital and she says it really doesn’t matter just get to the hospital, you freak. When we arrived at the hospital and found a heartbeat we were somewhat relieved. But another ultrasound […]
