Grayson, how can you be 2 years old? I’ve been reading your mom’s blog since March and I still (and probably always will) think of you as that cute little 18 month-old in his snappy little shortalls 😉
You inspire me, little man, and so does your mama! A day does not go by that I don’t think of you and wonder what you’re up to, or wonder what you’re learning at school. You are such a strong, brave little guy who finds so much joy in life (and Veggie Tales!). I always look forward to your mom’s updates and photos because YOU make me smile, Grayson 🙂
Happy birthday, buddy! I hope it’s wonderful, and tasty, and fun, and so exhausting that you sleep like a baby and dream all night of the things you’re going to do in year 3!
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!

Wow. I am speechless. I wish I had better words to tell you how grateful I am to you for orgnanzing this. These last 2 weeks have been so hard and this birthday bittersweet, but you and the others are making today nothing but exciting and joyful. Grayson, Ryan and I so appreciate your friendship and support- thank you, thank you!
