All the Sun For You

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

Ready to Go…




It’s been a very emotional day – I’m finding that I’m always weepy on Matthew’s birthday.  But today is a bit different because it’s his last day as our only child.  Tomorrow, the day after his 2nd birthday, he will become a big brother.  I know he’ll love it, but it still makes me a little sad.  I have cried off and on all day, and sobbed my eyes out after putting him to bed tonight.

This is hard.

I know it will be OK – I know it will be GREAT.  I just wish that I could have one more day of just us.

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!
