This boy, he just grabs my heart with every smile, tear, and babble. Can you believe Baby E turned O-N-E!?!?!?!
About a month before his birthday, I started researching all sorts of fun birthday themes for some elaborate party that would have most likely driven me absolutely crazy in planning (which I'm now saving for future years!). Luckily, my wise husband advised me that having a family party would be just as much fun at this point in his life. He was right!!
The week started out with both Granny and Grandpa flying up from California to visit right before my birthday last weekend. Then, Auntie flew in on Friday just for the weekend. Oh, how this boy is loved!!
Teacher. Military Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Infertile. Now Mother.
I use to spend my days warping young minds as a teacher. However, three IVFs and one super fabulous donor later, I found myself knocked up by another man. Now, I'm a mom staying at home with baby E, working online, and loving life in Alaska. Now, we are on the journey for baby #2 via embryo donation from IVFlygirl and her family.
