I think it is for Real

I am still being a little quiet because quite honestly this pregnancy still is pretty surreal to me. We are super excited, but we keep saying "we are having a baby" to each other. It seems almost like a cautious statement or a nervous question.

We are 12 1/2 weeks and I am still pretty sick. "Morning" sickness is basically all day, but with the help of one sometimes two Zofran we are making it through. To say I am happy about being sick is not entirely true, but it helps me know that I am still pregnant and things are going to be okay.

I am very disappointed in maternity clothes this year. I thought it would be so easy for warm weather to wear cute skirts and tanks or summer dresses. The selection of cute affordable clothes in my area is a little lacking. I did buy a whole lot of PG clothes off ebay and while I was happy with them, I still feel sad there isn't what I envisioned out there.

I needed to pay attention years ago to my Mom, who is a wonderful seamstress, when she tried to teach me to sew. While I can now "sew", a seamstress I am not. How hard can a sundress that doesn't really need to fit be to make?? I may try my hand at that soon, we will see.

The Cat is out of the Bag

Miracles do happen!! After years of sadness, grief, anger, loss, etc. My heart and head actually feel some happiness. It has been a REALLY long road. I mean never ending road.
We have been blessed, again. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!


Baby Smith #2 at 11wks 5 days

His/Her alien shaped head. Scary, but it does turn out normally shaped.
3D - The arm and leg buds will grow:-) They are much longer than at 9 wks already!!!
There are fingers and toes, but impossible to see in this picture.

Thank you to everybody that has followed us, supported us, held our hands as we cried and while we prayed. For those who believed when we were not able. We can never thank you enough.
Please continue to pray for this baby's continue health and growth. As you can imagine my head just cannot stop with the "what ifs", but I am trying to relax and enjoy.

As we start this journey with this new baby, my first baby is always on my mind and in my heart he holds a huge chunk of space. I know that he is looking down on us now, blessing us.
He would have been the best big brother any child could have had.

Lots to talk about

There is a BIG rumor going on around here. Quite honestly I am too sick to discuss, but soon, very very soon.

My Heart

One Day Old

Sunday, March 7, 2010


Sorry peeps that I have been very quiet lately. I have things on my mind and haven't been able to post about them just yet. Soon, very soon.

It looks as though Spring is on its way, of course by the calendar it is just shy of two weeks away. It has been sunny and warmish here the last week. My bulbs are starting to break through and buds are starting on some of our trees and bushes.

How is the weather where you are?
