Changes

Do you like my new design? I love it! I love the fresh colors and the spring feel to it. I owe another HUGE Thank You to my talented blog designing sister Jenn. Thanks Jenn, you always make my blogging heart happy.

Along with the change of my blog design, I have a few other changes going on in my life.

This first one isn't new to any of you that are friends with me on facebook. If you're not though, then it will be new to you. :)

A couple of weeks ago I decided I was ready for a new haircut. Don't get me wrong, I loved the long hair with mostly blonde highlights, but every once in a while I like to switch it up. So I had 3-4 inches cut off and my hair was dyed chocolate brown with chunky blonde highlights.






I'm diggin' the new 'do!

This next change is a HUGE one for me. WARNING-this is a subject that most men don't like to read or talk about so if you're a man, you might want to stop reading here. Ha!

For any of you that know my history, you know that I have PCOS and I haven't ovulated on my own without the help of hormones or fertility drugs for yeeeeeaaaarrrs. I mean, I can't remember when this last happened (I think in my teens).

Well, I don't know what happened but my body is finally operating the way it should! I've had 3 consecutive, very normal cycles completely on my own. Most women wouldn't welcome their period with such excitement, but I have been very excited to see this change in my body. Especially after so many years.



In case you're wondering, no, we aren't trying for baby #3-yet. But if I continue to ovulate on my own then hopefully baby #3 will be conceived naturally (and maybe even easier). Maybe, maybe not. Yes-Ethan was conceived naturally. However, since I had just been on clomid the month before, and since I'd just miscarried the month before, I always wondered if that month was just a freak, miracle month. Honestly, it doesn't really matter to me how we have another baby (assuming that's in God's plans for us). More than anything, I'm just so happy to see my body finally functioning as it should. Thank you Lord!

YEAH! Hooray for bodies doing what they're supposed to be doing. I wonder what has caused the change? Super exciting! And I love your hair, it looks great! =)

Rebecca said...

Christine you look great! I agree with Becky - Yeah for bodies doing what they are suppose to.

I love the new design too!! Jenn did a great job and you can keep this one for awhile since it's not too seasonal. And how sad is it that I still haven't seen you in real life with your new hair? From the pictures I'm digging it though!

I meant to tell you tonight that your hair looks amazing! It's a great look on you! Having a close friend who has PCOS I know what a big deal that is! I hope you have many many more normal cycles!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
