The dark side of TTC...

Yesterday my father in law said while playing with Adlie "I think Adlie needs a little brother." As much as we adore Adlie and would love it if God blessed us with another child I don't know if I want to put myself though the ups and downs of Trying...

In the 5 years Matt and I have been married we have been pregnant 3 times. I know you think wait they only have 1 child.... We suffered 2 miscarriages before having Adlie.

I hate the total disappointment I felt every time I would see a negative test. I hate the wait to know if this month was our month. I hate feeling like "being together" is a chore. I HATE putting myself though the months and months of tears just to have to put on a happy face to try then next month.

I am 25. We want 1 more child IF and WHEN God decides he wants to bless us with a baby. When and if we do decide to TTC we will not share that news because its just not fun having people ask well are you pregnant yet!

I mean really Adlie is only 14 months old I don't really think we need to get moving on the TTC thing any time soon.

Tonight I want to ask you to all pray over all the women who are TTC because it can feel like a long dark road that is filled with negative tests and disappointment in yourself and your body. Pray for God to be with them on this journey because it is not easy.


*TTC= Trying to conceive

Adlie's head...

Adlie has been getting pretty banged up lately (she is now running all over the place!) as you can see from some pictures she has a cut on her head and a large bruise... here is how those happened....

The cut happened a few weeks ago. She was trying to pick something up off the floor in front of the fire place and she hit her head just right on one of the stones. I was a mess I told Matt we may need to go to the hospital. All I saw was my poor little girl's face covered in blood. I went in to mommy mode. I sat her down in my lap wiped her up and calmed my self and her down and once she was cleaned up we noticed it was just a small cut and she was acting fine so we put a band aid on and called it a night. She really scared me... I wish I had taken a picture of my socks though just to show you all I had blood on my shirt pants and socks but on my one sock the blood was shaped in to a heart so weird...

The large bruise is very new she likes to pick things up out of the pantry or if we leave soda bottles in the entry she thinks she needs to carry them so she was trying to pick a soda bottle up and slipped hitting her head on the side of the couch! ( I was out shopping with Matt's sister and he called me in a panic telling me I needed to come home that he thinks her head was going to split open ) *he panics more than me* So thank God we were only a mile from the house we rush home I grab her and calm her down and just notice a very large *think an egg cut in half* bump on her head it was already bruised and looked bad but as soon as I got her in my arms she was fine no tears and she was smiling and happy. I call my mom to see if we should take her in to the ER and she and I talk for a few minutes and we decide if she is acting fine and we can get the swelling down she is ok . Thankfully with in an hour the swelling was gone and all that was left was a nasty bruise... and here we are a week later and it is yellowing and fading...

I just know this is just the beginning of all of this but man does it give my heart a start when my little girl is hurt!


New pictures of Adlie

I know you are all in need of your Adlie fix so here are some pictures from the last few days!

This little girl likes to sit in boxes and anything else we often find her sitting in her toy box playing and this was just to funny (she is sitting in the container for her shape sorter)
I love that sweet little face!

I guess eating is hard work!

My goofy little girl! *a few weeks ago I won a gift certificate for a bow making shop for this recipe so i got Adlie a few Kufi hats to wear her bows on seeing as she still has very little hair and they just look so cute on her!!!*
I just realized that I have been blogging for over a year now!!!! My first blog was 2-17-09! So I guess happy blogiversary to me!!!

Wordless Wednesday

Kitchen floor before...

Kitchen floor After
New Paint and new floor together
The paint color came from this post of Devin's I saw the color and the slate tile and loved it! Thanks for the color inspiration Devin

Adlie is 13 months old!

Oh how I wish I was posting cute pictures of Adlie today but she has been a drooling snotty nosed fussy mess! She is currently cutting 4 (maybe more) teeth! That will up her tooth count to 12...

She is pretty much running!

She is still nursing 3-4 times a day but not in the middle of the night!

She is wearing size 3 diapers

She is in size 9-12 months they are a bit big but oh well

She has moved in to her brand new big girl car seat! and she loves it!

She learned to say no and shakes her head no too which is funny

She also says Tickle tickle tickle (she uses this also to call the cats)

She drinks a lot of whole milk and that was a pretty easy transition

She weighs 20lbs 10 oz (when we went for a weight check at the end of January)

She takes 1 nap a day

She loves Ice lately if I have some in a cup she will whine until i give her some

She loves playing in the kitchen caring bottles or cans of food around...(remind me to show you our new kitchen floor and paint job!)

She loves snacks! She loves the Gerber cereal bars and the fruit leather

She plays very well alone most of the time and loves to cuddle and is for the most part a happy baby!

*She did hit her head on the fire place last Friday and gave me a good scare! I really thought we were going to have to go to the hospital thank goodness I got her cleaned up and realized she had a very small cut on her forehead which stopped bleeding after a few moments!*

I will try my hardest to shoot a few pictures of her when she is in better spirits!( Ok so this one is from a few days ago but notice the red cheeks yep she is teething! Oh and yes she has some ice!)
