Baby Mitchell


This is baby Mitchell.  He was born on March 7th 2012.

On June 10th 2012 he was taken up to Heaven.

I told the story as it was told to me in my last post, and have since asked his mother, Jessie for permission to use his picture, and the letter she wrote to him on my blog.


"oh mitchel. you've been such a miracle. You've fought for your life since you were born. I lost you at 3 months and 3 days. but those days between today and when you were born were the best days of my life. You'll never be taken for granted nor will you ever truley be gone. i love you so much my beautiful boy. im glad i got to hear you laugh last week. and how much you wanted to cuddle with me. im going to miss your small cry and that beautiful voice. Your baby talk could make me laugh for days. Im SO proud of you mitchell. I know you were tired but it's okay. mommy understands. lol, you know what i loved? when i would smile at you and you would smile back. or when we would make faces at you and youd smile and hide your face. Or when i held you, you would always lift your arm like "hey mom, smell my armpit" oh my gosh you can keep me smiling for days with all these memories. You were one special boy, we knew that the day you were born mitch. 'goodness gracious, mitchell' you've always been my oddball. i love you baby bear. my little blue eyed bear. YOU ARE STRONG. you always have been. i held you for the first time at 4 days and i held you at your last. Momma promised she'd always be there didn't she? from beginning to end? this isn't the end. momma will still be here and i know you will be too. I love you mitchell. i love you, i love you. i can't say it enough. ♥"
On my blog you will now find a "Donate" button.  I'm hoping to get donations for Mitchell's family.  He was sick for quite some time and they have incurred a lot of medical bills that they are struggling to afford.
I know asking for a donation on my blog could seem like a hoax, but I promise all of the money (minus the 3% fee that PayPal charges) will go to the family.  Any little bit is appreciated.  I want to do something to help.
If  you are not in the position to donate, please consider posting this on your Facebook page to spread the word to your friends and family.

  3. I wanted to mention giveforward.com. It's a fundraising website. I learning of it after Avery, a little boy with a stomach infection, died recently. Someone did a fundraiser for them and it's been a blessing for sure. Here's Avery's - http://www.giveforward.com/inthecourtoftheking?utm_source=giveforward&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=update&hid=273459&cid=765223

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
