#Tweetsgiving Day One

I was inspired by Carissa so here goes:

I am most thankful for my family. This has been a tough year for all of us, but our love can overcome all. As many of you know my son (MacDougal) and his wife (Funsize), lost a baby a little over a year ago. After that there were several early miscarriages. Then, 19 weeks ago, they got pregnant again. I haven’t talked much about it because??? Well, maybe because I was am a little scared. Collin was born at 33 weeks and we still didn’t get to bring him home, so we still have time to worry. A few weeks ago the OB did an ultrasound and said he “saw” something. Could be the cord, but he was 80% sure this little one is a boy. Today I tagged along to see if this could be verified. Today the little one was not cooperating. He/she would neither confirm nor deny a he or she status. In fact, as the OB said “he/she was all over the place.” So my temporary nickname for this little gift is RolyPoly.

And today I am thankful for this view and this sound:


Life is rather like a tin of sardines – we’re all of us looking for the key


#Tweetsgiving Day Two


  1. Jenni

    Yay! Baby. After I lost Kyle I never talked about subsequent pregnancies. I didn’t buy one thing for my kids until they were passed 35 weeks. This is why Colby had his brother’s hand me downs. He was born a month early. I think we need to protect our hearts a little. We know too well kids are not invincible.

    I am sending all my stay in mommy energy to your daughter. I manage to keep my daughter in with that energy! They said I wouldn’t make it passed the 4th month with her. Then ended up inducing because of it! 😉 I hope you have Roly Poly in your arms as soon as s/he is done cooking.
