My Life Happenings

A Little More Normal


I haven’t posted since November 30th. Actually, here are some telling signs of the cloud I’ve been in for the past many months. At the doctor’s office a few weeks ago, I signed and dated a document as August 14th, 2009. The lady was like, “Um… It’s December 14th. Yeah. December.” I looked up at Read More

35 Weeks Pregnant


35 Weeks Pregnant 4, originally uploaded by StephLewis. Here I am at 35 weeks pregnant! I have slowly been abandoning my cute pregnancy clothes as they are proving to not fit so well anymore.

So, after lots of fatigue, dizzy spells, heart monitors, doctors visits, and obsessing over fine details about Read More

Take That, Ella!


Caleb and Ella, our miniature dachshund, are best buds. They are pretty much always by each other. They play fetch with Ella’s toys, he gives her dog treats, she comes when he calls her (sometimes), they sit by each other and cuddle under a blanket when we’re on the couch together. Sometimes Caleb will even Read More
