ICLW- Welcome

Hello everyone. Welcome to Parenthood for Me. This blog was created when my husband and I started our non profit corporation Parenthood for Me. Our mission is to provide financial and emotional support, along with education tools for those building families through adoption or medical intervention.y

My husband and I did ART unsuccessfully for 4 years. Deciding it was more important to be parents that get pregnant, we moved on to adoption in 2007. Our son came home from Korea in June 2008. We are beaming parents to an absolutely wonderful 2 year old.

Here is my latest Top 10 about my son Luv Bug:

1. He is now calling me "Mom" instead of Mommy; he sounds like a teen-ager yelling up the stairs at me
2. We have a rock star potty trainer on our hands. I bought Elmo underwear yesterday and he was so excited. (who are we kidding. I was was so excited to think diapers may be gone soon)
3. He can now count to 15
4. He is trying to say truck but it comes out like F*@k.
5. We have graduated to sneakers without velcro. This is a big deal for him.
6. At my mother's house he gingerly carried in a $300 antique bowl from the dining room. Aagghh
7. He calls my husband AJ instead of Dada (Sometimes. It's very funny)
8. He has complete conversations with me in babble. He cannot wait to talk in full sentences.
9. Our dog Lucy is his hero. He wants to be just like her. He spins around in circles before sitting down just like Lucy.
10. He made up his own song about Pizza- his favorite food.

He sounds like so much fun! I can't wait till I get to have...whatever I get to have, I guess! We're still trying. I found you the other night, and am still reeling from the post about how it feels to be infertile and how all things baby hurt. Thanks again for putting into words what I couldn't. ICLW

Happy ICLW!!! Awww Fyn is getting so BIG! This age is one of my favorites. Well except for the tantrums, but when they aren't doing that..I love it!

I love these ICLW intros. I always get to learn something new about my favorite bloggers.

He sounds absolutely adorable! I just love it when their little words come out sounding like curse words! With my sophomoric sense of humor, I've always found that hilarious!

One day, before you know it, he will say f*@k and totally use it in context! You are forewarned... :)

That's the sweetest thing. He sounds ADORABLE and brilliant. :)

I have to say this is a great blog.......my best friend is struggling with infertility after MC at 20 weeks and it's heartbreaking. Everyone who wants to be a parent should be able to.


Infertility is Hard said...

What a great list. :-D

Not to tell you what to post. . .But it would be so interesting to see a post on the cost of adoption. I'm starting IVF right now, but I know if it doesn't work, my husband and I really want to adopt. I've been trying to do some research, but there is conflicting information everywhere. I'd love to hear about adoption from someone whose been there, done that. :-D

Not a problem. I will put something together. I have a lot of data.
