This my beautifully chaotic world of mismatched sippy cups, a 3 year old fashionista, & all too competitive 5 year old.

Some of you may or may not know that this season’s Bachelorette is the one and only, Emily Maynard! She didn’t find love with Brad, so she is out to find love again, this time in her own control! Emily lives here in Charlotte (she attends the same church as we do, Forest Hill) and she agreed to be the next Bachelorette on one condition; they filmed right here...

Over the weekend, I took LC to see Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax thanks to Stonyfield Yogurt and another sweet mommy blogger I have been connected with. A month ago, we saw the previews for “The Lorax” and LC was enthralled by The Lorax himself, so I knew I wanted to take him back to see the full movie. We were not disappointed! Although I’m a huge Dr. Seuss...

Did you ever wonder what it would be like if you weren’t you anymore? If you were suddenly gone, how would your world react? Whatever you imagined is wrong. There’s nothing romantic about death. Grief is like the Ocean. It’s deep and Dark and bigger than all of us. And pain is like a thief in the night. Quiet. Persistent. Unfair. Diminished by time...

Lavery Elizabeth entered the world at 38 weeks 1 day on July 1, 2011 at 8:55am. Kyle and I woke up bright and early, anxious to meet our baby girl and missing our baby boy at the same time. We arrived at CMC Pineville early in the morning eager to let Lavery’s birth day begin! I was up all night the night before sick to my stomach and just anxious overall. I knew...

As LC and I hang out this morning and get ready for my doctor’s appointment, I figured it was time to post my most recent 3d ultrasound photos! We went to The Prenatal Picture last week to have a little glimpse at baby Lavery and we were amazed at how clearly we could see her! She was posing for us and wiggling around like crazy! She had the umbilical cord up in...

Well.. I’m just shy of 13 weeks and feeling pretty amazing! I’ve been a little sick here and there (mostly first thing in the morning, so happy to report that this time, the term “morning sickness” is actually somewhat accurate!) With LC.. it was more like ALL.DAY.SICKNESS! This time, not so much! We made it through the Holiday’s.. and I didn’t...

Well baby Crowe # 2 is making its appearance on Forever’s Like a Dream! I had an appointment yesterday and a 9 week ultrasound and this little pea was measuring in at 9 weeks and 5 days! I even got to see its little arms and legs moving around… kicking like crazy!! I don’t remember ever seeing that with LC much (definitely not that early!) He was such...

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his. ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895 People always ask me what my favorite part of being a mom is. I struggle to give them the answer, because there’s a list of reason’s why I love being a mom. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a mom....

So I FINALLY have a free moment to share some memories from Landyn’s 1st Birthday Bash! Friends and family joked it should be on “Platinum First Birthdays!” Although I’m no Tori Spelling (she does Hansen’s cakes, we do Nona’s Sweets! ;)), I tried to create some lifelong memories using some “going all out tips” from A List...

March 10, 2009 at 10pm marked the beginning of everything….. This time last year, I was counting down the days until my scheduled c section. Nothing could make me take my mind off meeting my little man. Everyday I woke up wondering what he would look like, who he would resemble. Would he have my eyes? What about Kyle’s nose? I hoped he wouldn’t have Kyle’s...
