I am going to make this quick. I have a favor to ask. I’m not the most religious of folks. Spiritual? Yes. Religious? No. But someone I know needs positive thoughts and prayers.
Friends of ours delivered their baby daughter on Monday at 25 weeks gestation. She’s tiny (1.38 pounds, 12 inches) and precious and seemingly doing well – but positive thoughts and prayers (if you’re of the praying persuasion) can’t do anything but help the situation. If you can just send up a quick happy thought or prayer for “Baby Laura,” it would be so appreciated!
I told B today that I spend about 90% of my time right now thinking of my friends and their daughter. Every little thing that Matthew does makes me think of the struggle that they’re going through at that very moment. I have a knot in my stomach just thinking of what they’re all going through and the fight they have ahead of them.
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!

I will think of Laura during my sit today. Sending love and light her way, and to her parents. xoxo
