Slice me up into little pieces

There are just not enough of me to go around. Mom-me, work-me, freelance-me, wife-me, friend-me, daughter-me, blog-me and on and on. This summer has been crazy, despite that it feels if I have achieved little. But that is not entirely true. The bathroom door and trim finally got painted. That has got to count for something.

But what is crazy to think about is that this time last year the shit was about to hit the fan. I was about to go into preterm labor, my cervix was shortening and none of my shithead doctors would help me. We hauled ass to a suburban hospital and were admitted straight away. I stayed there for a little over 4 weeks. Leaving my OB and heading to the burbs was the smartest thing we ever did. I am not sure if my son would be here today if we hadn't.

I have very few pictures of myself pregnant and not confined to a bed. So this is what I looked like this time last year.


Our little boy is rocking the house. Today was downright monumental.
- He started articulating da, da, da in a very purposeful and clear way.
- He started to sway a little when he heard music.
- He got a TOOTH!

I know, boring boring. But we are siked... And sad to see his grow so fast.

This time last year I was as infertile and childless as I am this time this year. But then I was morning a seemingly inevitable implosion of my marriage instead of a failed IVF. I'm not sure which was better, then or now? Hrm. I sense a blog post brewing.

Cloning technology would be much appreciated in my house.

D has grown so much, gorgeous!

He is absolutely gorgeous! Go D!!!

And Yay for A- I ~love~ that place! (I would have really liked to have been able to walk around during labor more- but I'll take the trade offs of a really caring & great hospital!)

Sorry you are stretched so thin- let me know if you need anything now that I am finding myself with wide open days...

Oh sweetie...not boring at all. Lame ass me lives for these update posts on my favorite internet nephew. By the way - he is so freakin cute! I love the picture of you from last year. I know that those times were not the best for each of us, but in a way I'm glad they happened. If not I wouldn't of found you quite the way I did And one day when life slows down we'll actually get to meet and have some real fun (well maybe us and the kiddos!) ((Hugs))
