There is NO THEME to my blog...I'm very random so I'll blog about anything and everything just because I can...

Any day now….

Here’s a belly pic at 38.5 weeks pregnant right before my check up.


Dr. Williams, my obstetrician is out of town so I saw Luanne, the NP. She’s just as awesome as my ob. 

She checked me, all is well with baby. She had me make an appointment for next week but said not to be surprised if baby comes before then.

So far, our sweet little Kara Rose, has surprised everyone. Everyone thought she’d come early including me. I was even put out on leave from work a week earlier than I expected.

So since I’ve been off, I’ve been nesting and crocheting like crazy. 

P.s. I know I moved to WordPress, but o actually fine it so much easier and faster to post on here….so I think I’m coming back to tumble :)

Crochet infinity scarf with a button chain that is optional. Knot it up like or knot! Haha.

Pardon our messy room but I had to share…
The picture to the right is of Michael’s mom, my mother in law, Cathy. She passed away when Michael was 13 from melanoma.
Sometimes when I watch Michael with our kids, I feel so many emotions…I truly am blessed for such a loving companion and couldn’t ask for a better father for our children. We have gone through so much together and he has always been the glue that keeps me together.
Earlier today, Michael and I left to run errands with my mom. The kids stayed home with my sisters.
When we got back, my sister Jessie met us at the door and told me she needed to tell me something about Jacob. She continued to say it wasn’t bad…then she shared this with me…
Jacob was in our room, on our bed watching cartoons. Then all of a sudden my other sister, Jenny, started to hear him weeping. She came in the room to find him on top of our dirty laundry basket staring at the picture of his Grandma, weeping…
I couldn’t help but cry when I heard this…when I went to ask Jacob if he missed Grandma he quickly replied in a soft spoken tone “Yes.
What I would give at times to see my mother in law hold my children but I know she is in heaven looking down at all of us…
I try to live better everyday on this earth to be able to see her, meet her and tell her THANK YOU…
