We’re Graf’s…

and Mapes' and Kaptain's and we're gonna get through this together!We had a very successful weekend even though the Terminix guy fell through our ceiling and didn't actually terminate any bugs in the process.  That happened on Saturday, but let's start at the...

Beyond Grateful

Wow!!! What an ordeal?!? I don't think realized how serious that was.  I am so blessed to have Wade and loving family to help me through that tough time.  I ended up having a D & C to clear out my uterus and it's been really painful.  I also have no...

Gift that Keeps Giving

Welp, I'm at Arlington Memorial. I started bleeding a lot this evening and I passed another clot. I had passed a large one earlier this week and called the ob's office, but they told me not to worry and that it was normal. Tonight was different though. There...

Deadlines v. Goals & My New Friends

Who knew motherhood would be so inspiring?!?  I have about a million ideas for blogs (that I will probably never have the time to write).In any case, my life has changed - DUH!  I have always been really driven.  I worked on deadlines and really thrived...

My little caretaker

Archie has been by my side all day as I recover from a VERY long night. Also, a nap in the pregnancy pillow isn't a shabby way to spend the afternoon. He's got such a knowing...

Jayne-uary Update #1

Today was the first of our weekly appointments and I wanted to give everyone an update.  I'm going to try to start blogging more in the hopes that it will become a habit again and I'll be able to do it once she's born...we'll see. In any case, my appointment was...
