Today was a great day – we drove back to my hometown to see one of my mother’s greatest friends, and to stop in to see my grandpa. I love my grandpa – he and I have always had a terrific relationship! I can’t imagine going back to my hometown and not stopping in for a visit. Grandpa loves, loves, loves babies so M’s visit with him today made Grandpa smile from ear to ear. Heck, Grandpa’s probably still smiling right now!
My dad suggested we take a four generation photo. I am so glad he did because we will treasure it forever! We never did get one with my grandma, which makes me very sad. She was always too sick for us to bring M by to see her before she passed away. I need to let that go and just be thankful that I still can get photos with Grandpa 🙂
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
