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!

To your kitty? Looks a lot like one of our cats. 😦

Yes… She’s losing lots of weight. I think we’re on borrowed time. Our vet thinks so too, darn it.

Oh, I’m so sorry. It’s so hard to say goodbye to our furbabies, and knowing it’s coming doesn’t seem to make it any easier.

Oh Courtney.. this makes me so sad!! 😦 I am so sorry. It is so hard to say goodbye to our pets that we love so much. Oddly, my not very cuddly cat, Willow, just snuggled up right by my side as I was looking at your photos. Anthony noticed to and I showed him your photos. He also says he is sorry 😦

Oh I’m sorry to hear this. My dogs have constantly been on my shit list lately, but reading this post and seeing how Matthew is with her made me reflect on how much C loves our dogs (even though she torments them too) and when it all is said and done, I will be devastated when we have to say goodbye to one of our dogs. I hope you have more time than you think, at least good quality time.
