Beckham Free – Our BIG Boy’s Birth Story

Note: this birth story contains content surrounding a traumatic delivery, such as not breathing at birth… as well as normal delivery/birth story words like urine, placenta and sewn up – if any of those things make you uncomfortable, you might want to pass on this one. —- With all the other boys, our birth stories […]

Life, Motherhood and Grief.

Some people believe life begins at 18 days… or 12 weeks… or 20 weeks… or when a baby has taken it’s first breath…. I’m not that person. I believe life begins at conception. And I believe that every single life is precious and whole. — I’ve been talking with a lot of men and women […]

Miscarriage – He Knew You.

“God won’t give you more than you can handle.” Screw that. —— Finding out you just lost a baby, even one you weren’t aware of yet, is never something God thinks you can handle. Like it’s some sort of game He’s playing… waiting to see how strong He can make you become via the various life […]

Rockwell King: Birth Story

Well, it finally happened, after 38 long weeks, we got to meet our third bundle of beautiful chaos, Rockwell King. I wanted to take a little time and write down our birth story, as I have done in the past with the boys – and share with you some of the beautiful photos Bella Baby […]

“You have PTSD – It’s a Classic Case.”

If I’m honest, sometimes I feel like a liar. This blog for me is kind of like my own private sanctuary. My own private altar. Where I can speak with honesty and truth about what I’m going through and the Lord is right there with me, listening and watching and knowing me. That I can place […]

Why I deleted our YouTube Kids App – our story.

I am not one to take to Facebook to talk about something like this, but in the past two weeks, I’ve told our story to so many people, and it’s all over the news as well. After talking with two of my sisters in law, I realized that Edison’s story is maybe unique in that, we […]

Cemented, A Flawed Mom’s Journey to Balance.

FYI I wrote this blog post 2 months ago and just never got around to posting it. And here we are 2 months later and I’m just smiling and laughing at how God works. So I thought I’d go ahead and post it, 2 months late. Again, here’s another long one – you made need […]

Breastfeeding – May the Force Be With You.

This post was previously posted on The Kindred Women, but since that blog has since been on hiatus, I’m reposting some of my writings onto our blog here. I hope you enjoy!   I’m only half-­joking with that title up there. Seriously, sometimes I think you have to be half-wizard to be able to breastfeed. Breast­feeding… […]

A Plea to Already-Moms Everywhere

***At 32 weeks pregnant, I wrote out this blog post one morning. Exhausted and frustrated, the tears ran from my eyes as I furiously left my heart in the words I typed. Spurred into action by yet another ridiculous comment from a stranger at the store about how awful parenthood is… and tired of hearing […]

Our First Baby – Edison’s Birth Story

We never thought this day would come. Like, ever. — I have struggled with PCOS my whole life, and with so many ruptured cysts over the years, we thought I might have trouble getting pregnant. And well, we did. 5 years of marriage later and with no pregnancies in site, we had decided that maybe […]
