Pro-Life Video

I hate to talk politics but the FOCA makes me sick................


Too bad we can't ask Obama the following question:
"Obama, aren't you glad your mother didn't choose to abort you?"

A broken home, abandoned by his father, and a single mother who will struggle to raise him: How many other women have aborted their babies because of these circumstances? Who would they possibly be today?

And He Finally Sleeps..............

After 10 months of Cooper waking all night and me being extremely sleep deprived, my sweet boy is sleeping 12 hours straight. I forgot how great it felt to sleep all night and wake up feeling normal. I am so proud of him and how well he adjusted. I have been co-sleeping with him and loving every minute but finally decided that we both needed sleep. After many prayers, I decided to let him cry a little while being gentle with it. The first night he woke 4 times and I went in for re-assurance and within 5 minutes of me leaving the room and him crying, he went back to sleep. I was really happy with the first night. The next night he went to sleep at 7:00pm and didn't wake until 5:45am. This was the first time he went longer then 6 hours without nursing. I was so excited and shocked. The third and fourth night he has slept from 7:30pm till 7:30am. I have never had a good sleeper and am so excited about such success. Life seems so much easier and happier when I am rested. Thank you God for answered prayers!!!

Can't Put the Book Down

I discovered a new Author, Danielle Bean. She is a Catholic mother of 8 and her book Mom to Mom, Day to Day: Advice and Support for Catholic Living is amazing. I started it last night and am almost done. It is so great to read a book about real life stuff and to be able to relate to someone who has been though and struggles with many of the same things I do. I encourage every mother out there to read this book.
