For a reminder of the rules and all of the fabulous prizes, go HERE. This week we are reviewing January, February and March.

We’re now reviewing the quarter of the year I dreaded looking back on: April, May and June. These were the hardest of my life. I still appreciate how so many of you helped to uplift me from afar with your words of comfort and love. I can’t thank you enough for being there for us.


I went to the ER, and things started getting really scary with my pregnancy with Roo. I found out that Sassy Girl was a terrible friend. Then on April 15th, we lost our sweet baby girl. I shared Roo’s story with you, and you were all so supportive.

Geeky and Couple Wife came to visit me and spend some much needed day out with the girls, and my beautiful, amazing bloggy friends sent me a star for Roo.


We headed to Oregon and spent time with all of our parents for some distraction and healing.

We barreled through the rest of the month, not doing too much. We attended a wedding, we worked on the house, and I worked on getting my body back in shape, and I painted a tribute to Roo in the nursery.


We went to a few summer parties, I had all kinds of tests on my uterus, and I tackled a bunch of  DIY projects. 

I also got my MRI results, and Match and I made some decisions regarding ttc again. I know this review was less than uplifting, but in the mist of our grief, we had fun moments too, and were blown away with just how much support we have all around us.
Join us next week as we review months July, August, and September.

    You are so strong, I know not because you want to be but because you have had to be. I have every faith that your recap of these months next year will be very different.

    *HUGS* I am so sorry about Roo. I’m glad that you were able to get some time away to heal. I can’t imagine how much that must have hurt. 🙁

    I adore the tribute to Roo! You are truly wonderful with how strong and inspiring you are through your loss. I’m also sorry about your not-so-considerate friend, ugh. I am glad you have such a wonderful support group!


    I’m so sorry about your loss! I had a loss similar about 13 years ago and know the healing process you have to go through.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!


    You are so strong! Even though this was painful, thanks for sharing! God has blessed you with such a great support and encouragement in your marriage! Chin up for the beautiful months ahead!

    A beautiful story about Roo. I am so sorry for your loss.


    Oh my heart just aches for you with this recap. Your ‘friend’ Sassy Girl still makes me so mad! I cannot believe she was so unreasonable.

    The doors really do look so awesome- little thing but huge impact.

    I am so grateful you recapped and hosted with me- even though these were hard times to remember.

Your comments make my day!
