It’s been four short and long days since my son was born. It’s hard to believe that when I began this blog it was because I wasn’t sure I would ever become a mom. Now I’m here doing the mom thing and LOVING it. I am so grateful for all of the doctors, nurses, ultrasound […]Read More Postpartum Day 4 – Goodbye for now
Ezra arrived on Friday 1/24. In the morning the doctors told me that I was almost complete and would definitely deliver. I began pushing around 2. My nurse Liz sat on the edge of the bed trying to massage my perineum and help him come out. I pushed and pushed and didn’t feel enough progress […]Read More 1.24 our baby is born!

I want to post as well but my story doesn’t;t belong in the public forum. Not now at least. Maybe someday it will… In 2010 I […]Read More The Past Decade

The weeks are really passing quickly. I feel like I’m in a time warp and while we have stayed busy I have begun to loose track of all that’s been going on.
