One Year

Valentines Day 2009. Instead of getting a dozen roses from Tom, I had a dozen eggs retrieved from my body and fertilized with my husbands sperm. That day, I couldn't think of anything more romantic.
Today, I stand corrected. Valentines Day 2010 I spent staring at my miracle child, soaking in every bit of his existence. A child who gets very excited in his bouncer..see below. :)


I am blown away by how much your life can change in a year. Thanks to modern medicine, Tom and I are the parents of one perfect little boy and have four babies on ice. I am blessed.

That sounds a whole lot more special than a Hallmark card ;) Trevor really is a sweetie.

I was thinking of you on Valentine's Day, knowing your retrieval was a year ago. :) It's amazing how a year can change so much! :)

If you dont implant some of your babies what will happen to them?

You really got the best Valentine's Day gift ever! He is so, so precious.

And thanks for the sweet comment- You're one of the ones I always comment on, too, and, well, it's because I really like you!

And I totally agree...I think we'd be friends, too! I guess we'll just have to be online friends for now. :)

Evan Nicole mentioned her one year ET date in her recent post too, isn't it crazy?! I first discovered the IF blogging world with your two blogs a year ago, not long before your ER & ET.
Love Trev's expression :)

Definitely a perfect way to spend a valentines day. I'm glad you were able to spend it with the real live baby this year. He is so cute.

what a cute picture of trevor! isnt it amazing how much difference a year can make...i actually spent the weekend thinking (and blogging) about that exact thing!
and just like nicole, i disovered the IFv blogging world with your blog...a little over a year ago. i think it was when you had decided to move onto IVF. thank you for giving me hope. because then, we decided to do ivf, and did in may...i was always seeing what you were doing...so i would know what would be coming for me!
