Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

I am still here

Wow, it has been two months since my last post. I always said that I wouldn't be one of "those" bloggers. You know, the ones that fall off the face of the earth once they have a baby or two. I honestly didn't mean to go MIA, but I really have been busy. Maddie starts preschool this fall (I know, I know! It's hard to believe that she is old enough!!!) and we are trying to fit a lot into our summer. We are going swimming, parks and local attractions. It's been fun!!! Between that and a newborn I feel like there just isn't enough time in the day. It is so bad that Olivia's nursery still isn't ready. Sad. Just sad!!

Everything is going fabulous with Olivia. She is a joy. I have always heard that love doesn't divide, that it multiplies. It really does! I am still in awe of just how much I love these two little people. I love them both so completely, yet so differently. They are polar opposites. Maddie is my outgoing wild child, so full of life and energy. Olivia is calm and laid back. I love watching the two of them grow and become their own people.

We are enjoying our girls, but we also feel like we are missing someone. We are anxious to meet our last two embryos. Yesterday Maddie told me that she and Livvie needed a brother. Then she said that they needed two brothers. Twin brothers. Yikes! But I would take it. I have no idea if the last two embryos will yield a baby (or two) or not, but I won't feel complete until we try. Our goal is to return for them in March.

That about catches you up on our life. I will try to post some pics soon. You really need to see my girlies. They are super adorable!!! :)


  1. Yes some photos would be just lovely. I'm glad to hear you sounding so upbeat and happy, I know that having two small ones is incredibly hard!! Dealing with nap ties and night feeds, nappies, toilet training, feeding when you are out and about, weaning, and everything it can certainly take its toll!! Just enjoy the good times and ride out the hard ties, its all worth it!!

  2. Oh how awesome! Such a good update! Congrats on staying active with a newborn! I know how exhausting it can be!
    All my best!

  3. I know what you mean by busy and I'm one of those bloggers whose fallen of the face of the Earth and I feel guilty for it however there just isn't enough time in the day!!
    Would love to see pictures!!!
    Exciting march will be here before you know it!!!! I'm getting ready for a local consignment sale and my 6 yr old son got very upset because I was selling a bunch of the baby stuff- he wants a brother so bad!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
