Well my period decided to be a few days late this month, but it finally came and I start birth control pills tonight. I go in for the water sonogram on Monday and then I should get my calendar. Everything is moving so fast... I am excited and scared all at the same time! The retrieval will be some time during the first week of April and then five days later they will put one strong embryo back in me!!

I can't believe this is all happening . Fear, joy, nervousness and excitement are over taking me! I want so badly for this to work and to be able to announce we are pregnant!!

As we continue on this journey I will keep you posted!

While I am having a great valentines day... I am feeling a little down. This weekend I am going to a baby shower and several people have been posting their expecting news. I try not to be jealous I just feel envious I guess. I wish everyone expecting all the best but a part of me wishes it was me. I know our time will come... I just need to learn patience !

Sorry for the rambling!!

Forgot to share...

Last month the wife and I went dog sledding and we had a lot of fun together. This is one of my favorite photos. Regardless of what happens on this road... I am so glad I am traveling it with my wifey!!!

C is for Crocodile

Yesterday, the world lost a sweet little boy... Caemon (http://cisforcrocodile.wordpress.com/). Wifey and I have been following his fight via facebook and his blog from the beginning. While I do not know this family, I have been following them for some time - 2 years ago when I was searching how to start the process I came across their blog http://reproducinggenius.wordpress.com/ and have sporadically followed their lives raising their Boy Genius. They are awesome moms who helped their son fight six months of a rare form of Leukemia.

My heart broke yesterday when Wifey told me about the facebook post. I truly believed he would be a miracle. I can not imagine the pain and grief his moms are feeling. I pray for them during this difficult time that they find refuge in each other and strength from their families.

Please visit the facebook page or blog... read about this AMAZING little boy. Should you be moved to please leave a note of condolence for his moms.

Caemon... you have touched my life in ways you will never know! You inspired me to give blood and become a bone marrow donor. You were here only a short time but touched so many lives!!! Angels walk amongst us on earth and then watch over us in heaven. Caemon, I know your watching over your moms.
