I Would Die For That

One Month...

Hi baby boy.
Mommy misses you so very much.  I love you. You've been on my mind a lot today.

I can't believe you'd be a month old today. I hope you are having fun up in heaven with Mom Mom .

Mommy has seen you in my dreams a few times lately and a few times with Mom Mom. You look happy. You look beautiful. I wish I could hold you in my arms. I know you're watching over me, and helping us make it through so thank you.

Its a new year baby boy and I have a lot of hopes for this year. I am really hoping for lots of good things. Your daddy and I are getting married, and I hope soon we will make you a new baby brother or sister. Its a year of babies..that's what I keep hearing. I hope its true.

I love you to the moon and back.

Its been awhile!

Wow, I can't believe its been so long since I blogged!

My gallbladder surgery went well...I apparently don't do well with anesthesia, but that's not too bad.  It took me a while to feel like my self...but today, almost two weeks later, I'm getting there.

I can't bend too good yet, and I am still under lifting restrictions, as well as I am having trouble sleeping due to not being able to sleep on my stomach. But I'm slowly transitioning back to my stomach as I feel comfortable.

We were very blessed this year. We got so many presents from all different family members!

Our new year was very low key. We spent it out to dinner with two of our best friends at Red Lobster then came back here for drinks and games. It was a nice night.

The best part, is just the ability to look forward. I have been taking folic acid for years, but not always remembering it daily. So as a part of the new year and to prep my body to sustain another, hopefully, pregnancy I am now taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily as well as a Pre Natal Vitamin and DHA supplement. I will continue this until I get pregnant, at which point, they may even decide to up my folic acid.

I have to say, I'm very excited to start this new journey and feel like I am being proactive.  I look forward to the new things 2011 has to bring. :)

Only four months til the wedding!!
