All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Memorable Moments Monday


The boy wouldn’t sleep. We’re visiting my sister after a 6.25 hour car ride minus B, and Matthew was too fired up and happy to go to bed on time. This photo was taken around 10:15.

He is asleep now, and we’re sharing a room so I’ll be lulled to sleep soon by the lovely ocean sound coming from the sound machine. I love the sound machine!

The drive went ridiculously well! Matthew only cried for 20-30 minutes and slept or danced the rest of the way. It’s like he knew I was solo and couldn’t entertain him. What a good boy!!!

I will not be blogging or commenting most if this week because I only have my phone and typing posts and comments via phone is not fun or easy. But I’m still reading, and thinking of all of you!!!!

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!

  1. Great job, Mathew! Your eyes are so beautiful in this picture, Courtney.

  2. Glad he was such a trooper in the car, and that takes some guts from driving such a long distance solo! I love my late nights with my girl, I think she’d stay up until midnight if we’d let her. Have a wonderful week with your sister!

  3. Way to go Matthew! That’s a long car ride for a kiddo. Great pic of you two!

  4. Hope you guys have a great visit! I’ll miiiiissssssss yooooooouuuuuuu!

  5. Heehee, he’s like, “mom, I’m going to stay up all night and make you read Good Night Moon a thousand times, muwahahaha.”

  6. LOL. I love his face! He’s like “Mom, please! Can’t you see I’m reading?” LOVE IT! Also, how do you look so good after a 6 hour car ride? Not fair! 🙂
