730 Days..







It's been two years...

Two years since I was in labor...

Two years since I gave birth to you...

Two years since you breathed your first breath of air...

Two years since I saw your face for the first time...

Two years since I smelled your sweet smell...

Two years since I held you....

Two years since we looked one another in the eye...

Two years since I saw your adorable little chin....

Two years since I kissed your sweet chubbly cheeks...

Two years since my world was changed for the better...

Two years since you made ME a Momma...

Two years since I knew what LOVE was truly all about...

Two years since I got to call you mine...

     Colston, these last 2 years have truly been monumental to me.  It has been a beautiful ride,
and I'm so glad I was chosen to be your Momma.  I can't wait to see what kind of little boy you morph into.. I love you baby, to the moon and back!!

Love, Mommy

A day of hope....

    August 19, A day of Hope, A day to honor and remember the lives of babies, and children that could not stay here with us.  By doing this we are speaking out about the death of babies, whether it's through pregnancy, infant, or even child loss.

     Sweet baby of mine, 3 years have passed since I held you in my tummy for what seemed like the longest 13 weeks of my life.  But looking back, 13 weeks just wasn't long enough.  I long to know what you would have looked like, I long to know if you were a boy or girl, and I long until the day I get to hold you in my arms.  You were the greatest blessing I ever received, and I will be forever greatful for you.  You made me a Momma, even if it was only 13 very short weeks. 

     I still see you dancing on that monitor, moving and twisting about.  Hearing your heartbeat flutter - there wasn't a greater sound.  I still have your pictures, and I still have your video's of your very short life.  Since I said goodbye to you, I've never once been able to go through those pictures, or watch those video's.  Maybe one day, I will.

     Your brother Colston, would have loved to have you to play with.  When he is old enough, he will know about you.  He will know you existed, and he will know that because of you, he is here today.

     It is because of you, that I am a baby lost mother.  I still think about you  & I still and more than words will ever say, and I.always.will.

Love, Your Mommy

LOVING:  I am currently loving my hubby, my rock, the one who keeps me going.  The best Daddy to my son, and a great provider to his family.  I love this man more than I ever knew was imaginable. 

READING:  I JUST started reading 50 shades of Grey.... :) 

WAITING FOR:  September 28th to get here already.  I'm taking my baby boy to Tennessee to stay at the Choo Choo Inn Express, Ruby Falls, Look Out Mountain, the Aquarium, and a Train Ride... He is going to be soo excited!!

EXCITED ABOUT:  My baby's 2nd Birthday Party!!  Sept. 9!  We're doing a Choo Choo theme... he is going to die!! :)
      The cake I'm getting done!          The theme I decided to go with!

MISSING:  A great (or use to be great) friend of mine.  We no longer speak due to differences between her husband and  I (I'm guessing).  I think about her almost every day, and miss her more than words could say!!  :(

TRYING TO:  Loose just 5 more pounds... After I had Colston I lost 94 pounds, and have done exponetionally well keeping it off.  However, there is just 5 more pounds lagging, and it doesn't seem to want to budge.  I've seriously cut waaay back on my eating, and do cardio 4-5 times a week... I'm surprised I haven't given up yet, but I just want it off so darn bad!!  Grrr

WORKING ON:  Creating all of the party favor's for Colston's party.  I have all of it done except for these...

ENJOYING:  My sweet Colston Ance as much as possible before he's actually considered a Toddler... I can't believe it's been (almost) 2 years since I gave birth to my little chunker!!

USING:  The my fitness pal ap on the iPhone.. I love it, and it does help keep me in check with what I have eaten for the day, as well as my exercise and water intake too!

WATCHING:  Oh my goodness, I'm so guilty for watching the trashy reality t.v. shows.  For instance right now, The bachelor Pad.  :)  Other favorites consist of Sister wives, The little couple, Bachelor, Bachelorette, and so much  more.  Other shows I love are Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, The duggars, The Little Couple, and so much more!

WEARING:  Today I'm wearing a new Marigold top from Banana Republic, Long dark denim jeans, with brown heels.  Have a long dangly pearl necklace with gold lace earrings.. :)

PLANNING:  Obviously I'm planning my baby's 2nd birthday party, but also our trip to Chattanooga, TN in just a month and a half!!

SINGING:  Today I'm singing this song...

                                  Love, Love, Love that song!!!

NEEDING:  To oh so desperately dust my home.. that is one chore that I just can't stand... also My cars needing to be washed and vaccumed very badly.. Ahem.. Hubby!  :)

LEARNING:  How to not let things bother me so much like they used to.  I'm always so hard on myself, because I let things bother me so much so that it causes problems with whoever/whatever was said... Life's too short to worry about 1 little problem or whatever the case may be!!

LISTENING:  To the Bellamy Brothers on my playlist  :)

WISHING:  That I would have never given up competetive swimming.. the exercise in that sport is sooo good!!  Watching the olympics has just made me completely envy those swimmers.... oh How it'd be so nice to go back to high school and be a swimmer again!! 

DOING:  Running.... or jogging, whichever you prefer to call it... I've never been much of a runner, but suddenly I have a desire to run, and I'm really loving it.  It's so freeing, and I feel so energized after doing so!

PRAYING FOR: God to show, Me or my Husband for that matter what church we should attend.  We're not the type of family to just not go to church, but unfortunately we haven't been in quite some time.  I want my son raised in a Godly home, but I want/need some direction on where to go..

DREAMING OF: Colston's 2nd Christmas.. I have a feeling it's going to be a blast this year, and just can't wait to see his face when he tears into each gift.. this should be something else!!
