Last night, I drove from work straight to the Catholic store by our church. The woman who owns it often has at least one child with her, and yesterday she had all three. The girls are gorgeous and sweet and their little boy (maybe a bit over a year old) is absolutely precious. I browsed for a while, then asked if she had the book I was looking for, and she did. Tim came in shortly after. We browsed a bit more, I also picked up Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living Catholic Faith , then we went to the front to check out. I talked to the little boy while we checked out and the owner said, “Do you like children?”

“Oh, yes,” I replied.

“I can tell,” she said.

She asked if we had any of our own, and normally I would just say no and leave it at that. But something told me to explain. “We’re actually having trouble conceiving right now,” I said. By God’s divine grace, I had confided in the perfect person. A sweet Catholic woman who, as she explained, had tried for six years to get pregnant with their son. We talked for a bit and she gave me the name of a doctor she saw. After two months and a minor surgery, she was pregnant with their son. I’m trying to decide what we should do next. We’re already on the path with the other RE, albeit a bit of a scary and unknown path. But he does seem to have a plan of action and apparently will only charge $50 copay, even for my HSG.

I think we’ll continue seeing him, at least until the diagnostic work is done. Then we’ll see what the plan is and gauge our comfort level with everything.


Last night after Adoration, we went over to B&K’s to watch 24 and see the little bug before she went to sleep. When we walked in, I asked if I could have a hug. She looked at me, then ran to grab a book and brought it back, looking up, expectantly.

We read a touch-and-feel book about all the little animals going to sleep. I remember when she used to bring me books and just turn the pages over and over, and we never actually read them. So it was sweet to actually be able to read the entire book to her. Afterward, I figured she’d climb over to “Uncle Tim,” but she tucked her legs up and snuggled next to me on the couch for a while. So, so sweet.

A new favorite activity is riding around on Uncle Tim’s back while he crawls on his hands and knees. Very cute. Wish I’d had my camera, but I’ll bring it next time.

Right before she had to go to bed she was humming and K asked her, “Are you singing the best friend song?” She smiled. I started singing, “You are my best friend, I love you!” She started singing but had her paci in her mouth so I yanked it out just in time to hear her say, “I yuv yoooou!”
