The Day I Became a Heart Mom

September 21, 2015. 1 year ago today. 2 days after our awesome gender reveal.  We were entering a new week having just found out awesome news. We were going to have our sweet baby boy. We both wanted a boy! The pinata opened, blue confetti fell, and we had our Nolan Robert! We didn’t think […]

Happy Half Birthday!

I can’t believe I’ve had Nolan for 6 months (and 2 days)! It’s been an incredible and sometimes difficult six months. We’ve made it through two open heart surgeries and miserable headaches. June was the first month so far that we didn’t have to stay at least one night in the hospital. I love this […]

My Sweet, Happy Boy is BACK!

Our hospital stay with the Glenn was only 6 days! It was so much easier and “better” than the Norwood… as far as the hospital stay and surgery go. But Nolan was pretty miserable. Those headaches are no joke! I’m pretty sure I was fairly close to going crazy and pulling all of my hair […]

It […]

I LOVE seeing Nolan and hearing his heart, but weekly visits just remind me that everything is not as […]

32 weeks down, forever to go!

I was hoping the holiday season would make these last few weeks fly by but that’s just not the case. 😦 I feel like this last 7 weeks is going to drag by and mid-January is NEVER going to get here. I’m so anxious to meet this baby! During the Thanksgiving break I had a […]

27 Week “Bumpdate”

Okay, I just really wanted to use the word bumpdate. 🙂  Anyway, we only have 12 more weeks to go since I’m not allowed to go past 39 weeks. We had an OB appointment today to measure baby and do my glucose test. I was really nervous about the glucose test because I was under the […]
