All of the words in all of my life that could never explain and never describe...
Our journey through good times, bad times, in between times, marriage and pregnancy and loss, punctuated with brutal honesty and humor.

So here we are!
Hi! If you are reading this, you know either Ben or me. How you may know us depends on who you are. You can always follow up with us and our crazy string of antics that make up this thing called "our life" here! But I will warn you, what you will read is being written from a totally selfish point of view. I (Catie) am keeping this blog as a running journal of this great time in our lives and to chronicle our first pregnancy. We are so very fortunate and blessed to be expecting our first child and I want to remember everything, both the good and the bad, in an unfiltered and honest way. What you read may include TMI (too much information), honest opinions and brutal truths. So if that is not your bag of tricks, I would stay away. Having said that, I really do hope you enjoy my/our entries and updates. With family across the country, we agree that this is the best way to keep in touch with everyone and give you all a personal insight to our lives.
We were married on 10.20.07 and have been having the time of our life since. We share our three bedroom house with two male boxers, Marley and Boston and a female English Bulldog, Roxanne. On 8.20.08 we found out we are expecting our first baby! Unfortunately we lost our Buddha on 9.25.08 and miss him every day. After a few quick rounds with an RE, we are pregnant again! Baby Abigail Marie is due Feb. 2010! Check back often to get updates on us, our dogs and our journey through life dealing with infertility and pregnancy.
Go ahead and mention my child, The one that died, you know. Don't worry about hurting me further. The depth of my pain doesn't show. Don't worry about making me cry. I'm already crying inside. Help me to heal by releasing the tears that I try to hide. I'm hurt when you just keep silent, Pretending she didn't exist. I'd rather you mention my child, Knowing that she has been missed. You asked me how I was doing. I say "pretty good" or "fine". But healing is something ongoing I feel it will take a lifetime. ~ Elizabeth Dent ~
