I wish I had something related to prims to post for all of you prim lovers, but quite frankly I have something much better then any primitive or antique piece. I know alot of you might not find this little subject too interesting, but I must say that this precious little boy is the most precious thing that has been grabbing alot of my attention lately. I haven't been doing much of anything when it comes to painting, sanding or primming up anything. I guess I was worn out after filling orders and perhaps my kitchen cabinet project just wore me out FINALLY. Anyway, it was kinda rainy today and I just spent alot of time with Cameron. Awhile back I bought some wood blocks at a garage sale and we have been playing with these blocks non-stop since I bought them. Now granted he has tons of other blocks, but he LOVES these old wooden blocks. He likes to build "block towers". He actually came up with the name "block towers" and I really have no idea where he came up with it, but it fits it perfectly. Anyway, I just wanted to share this sweet picture of Cameron with all of you. Everytime he wakes up in the morning or wakes up from his nap....... this is what I am greeted with. Do you all see that most precious smile? Oh yes, that is the smile that melts my heart every single day of my life since Jan 2007. He is the light of my world and he is indeed the most precious gift that I have ever received. It was so cute tonight when we went out to grab some Mexican. Cameron was sitting next to me, he stood up on the booth to reach across for some chips and cheese dip, ate the chip, took a drink, laid his head on my shoulder and looked at me. I looked down at him as he was looking up at me and he said "Guess What Mommy". I said "What is it Cameron?" and he said "I love you Mommy". Seriously - can life be any better then that? I have been blessed with the most beautiful boy (in my eyes) and he is all that I have ever wanted in a child and more. He is just so happy, healthy, smart and loving and well I just love him to pieces!!!!
I have received quite a few e-mails from gals telling me that they think it is great that I spoke out about how I conceived my son and to be honest with you all....... I never thought for a second that it was anything to be ashamed about. INFERTILITY is not a pretty thing at all. I feel very strongly that unless you have walked a day in someones shoes that has gone through infertility problems then you probably don't quite understand the depth or the meaning of it all. Don't get me wrong...... I am not saying that you aren't caring to the subject or supportive, but I have known alot of gals including myself that have struggled for years to get pregnant and after months and years of taking HPT's and them coming up negative...... well, it quite simply takes a toll on you. It took a toll on me, my marriage and my walk with God, but then something shook me to the core and I woke up. I became closer to God, closer to my husband and now look at me. I have been blessed with this beautiful boy. I know that alot of people might not agree with IVF or any type of fertility treatments for that matter and to be honest with all of you...... I don't quite agree with it, IF someone is going to take advantage of it and not make wise decisions when it comes time to transfer embryos, but I do know that I would have never become pregnant, experienced what it was like to carry a child, give birth to my son and be a Mom if it wasn't for the wonderful doctors that treated me at Ohio Reproductive. We were wise when it came time to make a decision and in the end it all worked out for the best. Alot of people ask me if I would like to have more children. My answer would be........ of course if we conceived naturally. I remember praying before my IVF procedure, I was down on my knees and praying with tears in my eyes.......begging for God to bless me with a child. I didn't care if it was a boy or girl, but I wanted him/her to be happy and healthy and have blue eyes like his/her Daddy (lol). I know, I know, why throw that in, but it was just something I have always wanted. I only had O-N-E chance for it to work and low and behold it worked. I told God that if he were to bless me with a child that I would not be greedy and ask for more then one child. Now, I am the happiest stay at home Mom that you would probably ever see. I enjoy every day with my son and tomorrow will be no different. We are heading to the Zoo and the Waterpark for a day of sun and fun. I can't wait and he can't either. Motherhood is more then I ever dreamt it could be and so much more. My prayer tonight is that all of those women out there dealing with infertility will soon have their dreams come true as well. I pray that God will bless you with a child of your own to love and enjoy. They are indeed the most precious gifts from God above! God Bless....... until next time.
