Yesterday our family buried baby Nicholus.  It was a day of sadness but also a day to come to terms with the death of this little angel who was only with us for two short years, but made an impression on everyone he met.  This little angel made old relationships new again and restored in many of us the notion of unconditional love.

Baby Nick

Yesterday after writing my last post I received three calls back to back, followed by a text.  I wasn't in a position to answer my phone at the time but read the text immediately.

I Know for Sure...

I know for sure that in all my 36 26 years I still haven't gotten this "try to look at it from another perspective" idea down.  I have an opinion (which is normal and healthy) but sometimes I wish I'd think things through a little more before I voice my opinion.

What I have learned in the last few years is to listen and be more attentive when people offer opposing viewpoints because more often than not, I learn something, remember something I'd long since forgotten, or I am just simply made aware.  I'm not saying my opinions are unwarranted or unnecessary but it pays to listen in the end.

I also know for sure that my granny panties are now too small for this five month pregnant frame and if I don't get replacements soon, there could be major trouble.  I'm talking blue oxygen-deprived legs, decreased circulation, the whole shebang!

How I'm feeling...

Soccer Cleats or Ballet Slippers?

Well, today was the day!  The long-awaited, much anticipated day finally came and we could not be happier!  Grandma was with us and super excited, it was truly a family affair.

I Feel Like Such A Cheese-Ball

To all of my faithful readers (mom and my homey in Seattle!!!) I just wanted to let you know how corny I am.  You know, I thought I could do better.  I expected more from myself.  I mean, after all I DO own an iPhone!  I was thinking about my next post, maybe a little motivational piece to encourage you all (mom and my homey in Seattle!!!) to comment on my posts.  This way we can get a dialogue going, we can lift each other's spirits when needed, and just basically swap good intelligent conversation.

Back From the Abyss

Whew!  We are back from the abyss...of fun!  We had such a wonderful time in southern California, and although I am happy to be back home, I am so glad we were able to get away.
