These are the stories of my babies (Baby #4 coming soon!).
On Trying To Conceive
The following are posts I wrote either during or about our process of trying to conceive my first two children. While I am not considered medically infertile (we tried for 11 and 8 months respectively), I did have several known fertility problems that were preventing me from getting pregnant (and I sought help from my fertility doctor for some of them). During that time in my life I related so much more to women who were struggling with infertility than those who were not. This is why I sometimes use the term "infertility" in these posts - I do not claim to know what it must be like to be truly infertile, and I sincerely hope my use of that term does not rub anyone the wrong way. It was simply the only term I could think of to explain my situation so that people would understand when I was writing these posts.
I'm sharing the posts here because through my experience with fertility issues (though very brief), the Lord grew me so much, and I write about some of that here. My hope is that something I wrote will be an encouragement to someone! My heart aches for those of you who are struggling to get pregnant. While there is no way I could ever know what some of you are going through or have gone through, I have had a tiny taste of that pain, and it hurts my heart so much for my infertile friends. I wish I could take it away. Please let me know if there is some way I can pray for you.

When my son was about eight months old we started using cloth diapers, mostly to save money (and if I'm honest, also because I thought they were way cute!). Though we haven't been super-consistent with them since my daughter was born (she has sensitive skin), I still love them! Here are some cloth diapering stories (from me) and resources for you!
These are just some posts I've written with random tips for moms. More to come!
