I am so excited to be sharing this post with you all! Ever since my husband and I decided to take the plunge into the cloth diapering world, we’ve been looking for ways that we can cut back on costs for supplies and whatever else we need to successfully cloth diaper our little ones.

By God’s grace, we already saved a bunch of money through a girl at church, who sold to us (for a very good price) several cloth diapers, liners, a wet bag, and a diaper sprayer. We were beyond excited! We will still need to buy more diapers and are in the process of working on getting cloth wipes, but so far we’ve been saving a lot. After getting the diaper sprayer, Continue reading

Life Lately

life-lately

It would be an understatement to say that life has been anything but interesting lately. As you can see, I haven’t posted much in the past week or so. Well, we’ve had a lot of events occur back-to-back that kind of prevented me from being able to sit down and adequately write a post. So, I thought it would be a good idea to Continue reading

Things I Wish I Knew Before Becoming A Mommy

before becoming a mother

I remember falling to my knees and breaking into sobs.

“I don’t know how to be a mommy,” I squeaked out.

I could tell my husband was trying so hard to contain his excitement because he didn’t want to upset me even more. He grabbed my face in his hands and said, “Baby, you are going to be a great mommy.”

You see, I had plans. We had made plans. We were going to be Continue reading

Baby Bump: 21 Weeks

These past few weeks have been interesting and exciting. We had our gender reveal party where we found out we are having our first GIRL! I’m still shocked. But, when I finally saw that ultrasound picture, I was more convinced. That picture revealed what were definitely NOT boy parts! There is no mistaking that. Yay for a girl! Oh man am I terrified! lol!

A week ago was also my first centering group appointment. The Naval Hospital recently started a program for pregnant women, called centering groups. It’s basically where they put together groups of pregnant women who are due around relatively the same time, and those women get together once a month and have a “joint” appointment. Don’t worry, it’s not as weird as it sounds. We each privately have our normal checks for weight, fundal height, baby’s heartbeat, etc. But, afterwards we get together and have group discussion. That’s where the fun comes in. The centering groups are optional and are geared more towards first-time moms, but they encourage “seasoned” moms to join the groups for experience and added discussion. I felt really lead of the Lord to go ahead and sign up for a centering group, and I am so glad I did! That first appointment was so much fun! The midwives heading up the group are apparently excited about me being in it, because I’m the most experienced mom and I’ve had all my children at the same Naval Hospital. I’m exceptionally excited about this centering group experience because, Continue reading

To The Mom Of The Bold Boy In The Waiting Room

118H (1)

“Do you know who that baby is? That’s Jesus – Jesus Christ!”

I looked up from my phone and saw him standing there, surrounded by a couple young children. He was your son, and he looked like maybe he was about ten years old. I could be wrong. Listening to him speak, I could tell he might be autistic or have some sort of learning disability. None of that matters though because his words pierced my very soul.

“Do you know what Jesus did? He came to be the Savior of the world! He loves us so much that He died on the cross for our sins so that we could be free!”

Tears flowed down my cheeks as I intently listened from across the room. A warmth filled my soul. I listened as your son continued to Continue reading
