A blog about us. our lives. our struggles. our victories.

Rob and Anne-marie

The LORD says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. – Joel 2:25 I am SO excited to write this update! Tuesday, Rob and I drove to Jacksonville and […]

I’ve been waiting to write this post for three weeks. I am the worst at keeping surprises, mainly b/c I want to share in the awesome immediately. So when I had a secret Reagan photo shoot orchestrated for Rob for Father’s Day, I almost spilled the beans b/c I was so excited. Literally one time at […]

Guys. Guys. GUYS! Rob and I went on a date tonight. Our lovely friends Rachel and Kelsi offered to watch Reagan while Rob and I went to dinner for some alone time and some wine (obviously). We’ve never left Reagan with anyone since her metabolic crisis, but since Rachel is a NICU nurse at one […]

That’s what I said in our Early Steps evaluation today when the mood in the room went from zero to ELEVEN. But let’s go back to the start of our day. We woke up at 5 a.m. to murderous screams from our daughter. And 45 minutes of soothing didn’t help, so Rob strapped her in […]

Some days are just so hard. Like today…therapy appointments at 10 and 10:30 a.m. Love that they’re back to back, don’t love that they’re in the middle of the morning nap time. And I don’t love that Reagan falls asleep five minutes before we arrive. (Sleep on the way, please!) So, I had a very […]

There’s a picture on our fridge of me at age five with my new kitten, Frisky. I look at that photo pretty often, as it’s on the fridge, and I can’t help but think, “My parents were lucky that I was healthy. ALL parents who have healthy kids, that do normal things…they are so lucky, […]

Rob and I came home with Reagan on Saturday after being in the hospital for 12 days. We needed those 12 days in the hospital and I can honestly say the past two weeks have been the hardest weeks of my entire life. The marriage vows “for better or for worse” are definitely being tested right […]

A couple weekends ago Rob and I went on our first vacation with baby Ray Ray…we rented a super cute beachfront cottage for four nights on New Smyrna Beach, we brought Bauer…and every item we deemed to possibly be important. Going on vacation was a huge confidence boost for us. Reagan went with us everywhere. […]

I am sitting here with hot tears just rolling down my face.  Reagan started foods…and it is really exciting. But my baby eating foods is not like your baby eating foods. Reagan’s dietician Sandy gave us menus to work with as Reagan starts food…we have a certain amount of Lysine Reagan can have a day. During […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and that’s due to a lot of things…1) I need to be in the mood to write 2) I’ve been super busy and 3) while I could whip up a blog post, if I’m not “feeling it” or feeling in the mood to let my words flow without […]

Never miss a cute photo!
