We’re in the St. Louis area for a little Christmas kick-off fun… triggered by a trip to the states from No Baby Ruth. When she said during one of our chats that she’d be visiting for Thanksgiving, I invited my family down for the weekend to see her and her family. We’ve had a great trip full of holiday cheer and meet-ups with NBR and Arch Mama. The three big kids had the best time together today! Here they are saying goodbye to each other, the only opportunity to get them all in one photo!
Sadness… And cuteness!
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!

Oh my goodness – the cuteness! I love the one where S is looking at us and the boys are hugging her. Looks like a great day!!
