4 yrs Ago

I was thinking this morning that it was exactly 4 yrs ago today that we found out that we were having a boy instead of a girl. I have to add that this was also 3 days before he was born! I had several ultrasounds when I was pregnant with Cooper and they all said girl. So, needless to say we were totally shocked when the doctor said, "Hmmm....girl parts don't jiggle." Those words changed our lives in a heartbeat! The baby that I had been carrying for 9 months, the one I called Sara, was in fact a Cooper. I wish I could say that I was happy when we found out it was a boy. But, that would be lying. I totally lost it on the ultrasound table. I had EVERYTHING ready for our baby girl!!! Clothes were washed and put up, things were somewhat decorated. Now, here we were 3 days before I was to be induced and we had nothing for a boy! Thank goodness for great friends who came to the rescue! I can honestly say that this was the biggest shock in my life thus far. But, ya know, I cannot imagine my life without Cooper in it. He is a great big brother, most of the time.

I'm Back!

After taking about 6 1/2 months off from blogging, I have decided to return. I am saying this up front and I am not saying this to be rude or to be offensive, but I feel like this needs to be said. This is my blog. If you don't like what I have written then you can either email me directly and we can discuss it as adults or you can choose to not read my blog.

I originally started this blog so that my family could keep up with my life and so that I had somewhere to document my kids' life and the things that they are learning and doing. Somewhere along the way, my blog turned into a place where I felt like I couldn't say what I wanted or needed to say. So, as hard as this is going to be for me, it is time for me to be able to say what I want to say on my blog and be OK with that. If you want to come along for the ride, then that is great! If not, that is OK and I understand.
