Here's to getting acquainted in a flash!
Ethan gave us the brand new titles of "Mama" and "Dada" on October 5, 2010 and changed our lives in every way. Now, a fiercely independent and busy toddler he keeps me on my toes and tests my patience daily. Personality-wise he is the miniature version of me in every way. We share a love for sugar, exasperated sighs and doing exactly what we want to do. Parenting yourself is oddly challenging.
In 2011 we began trying for baby number two. After a chemical pregnancy in November, we discovered things might be a little more difficult than the first time. Determined to have a baby on my own timing, I flung myself into a Whole Foods Diet, herbal supplements and acupuncture. The day before my 28th birthday (apparently April 9th is a life changing day for me) I discovered I was pregnant with baby number two.
Jackson arrived on December 14, 2012, a perfect carbon-copy of his daddy in every way. He enjoys cuddles, falls asleep easily and is a perfect angel as long as his big brother is around to keep him entertained. Ethan is the best big brother. My heart is filled with joy every day as I watch their little relationship develop.
I write this blog as a form of therapy for myself. I document because life passes by way too fast and I want to remember every moment...even if it isn't pretty. I tend to look at life through realistic eyes. I rant, I rave, I photograph, I write. Until they come up with a font for sarcasm...I'll continue to disclose that I often am.
Pull up a chair, stay awhile and join me while I laugh through the chaos of what life throws my way.
