Goodbye 2011…Happy New Year!

Well here we are…another year is going by.  2011 was kind of a hangover year for me.  Still stuck in the shock of dealing with the loss of my son but we closed out the year with the excitement of Kami’s pregnancy with our second son, Ian.  It has been a great second half of…

Unchartered…at least for me

Well today we had another successful ultrasound and were able to see little Ian wiggle around on the screen.  This week my wife heads into the 25th week of pregnancy.  The furthest along we have gone since we lost our son Lukas at 24 weeks a little over a year ago. I have not missed…

Occupy…I just don’t get it

So I am fully aware that there is a need for some education on my part when it comes to the “Occupy” movement.  I also see the point in a good protest on occasion but these are missing it for me.  Sure, I’ll give credit to the folks out in Oakland that slowed down one…

101st Post

So I had been planning on doing some sort of big “100th post” with content about what the previous 99 posts had shared with whomever is out there reading these.  And then I felt my baby kick and I was thrown off a bit.  That was a very exciting moment for me and I wanted…

Milestone

Yesterday was a pretty big day for me.  I got to feel my son kick for the first time! I know for most of you this is not that big of a deal but I only had the chance to feel my first son kick once before we lost him.  It is super exciting for…

It’s a boy! (most likely)

Well it has been awhile since I last wrote a post here…I am not sure why.  I guess the nervousness that I am feeling each day that keeps me from sharing what is going on in my world.  To update you on things that have happened in the last month…my wife and I are now…

Wing It

One of the most useful traits or skills that was ever passed down or taught to me has got to be the ability to “Wing It”.  I really didn’t see this as that big of a deal until I began paying more attention at how unskilled some others in this world are not able to…

I’m a Geek…this is not the news

So anyone that knows me understands that deep down inside I am a geek.  I like computers and technology.  Yesterday one of the greatest minds for technology stepped down from his post as the CEO of Apple.  Ironically I am sure my MacPro start-up drive decided to fail in protest. The very first computer I…

Thanks everyone for your help in remembering Lukas!

Kami and I want to thank you all for helping us remember our son and for participating in our little fundraiser! We received a total of 45 pictures and that makes our donation $225!  Since we didn’t quite reach our goal of 100 pictures we have decided to make the $225 donation to each of…

Wisdom…when do you get it?

Okay…so I am going to take a break from the posts about my roller coaster life and pay tribute to those in my life that have passed on some wisdom that I am trying to share with those around me that apparently don’t have it. My dad told me a long time ago that “you…

I miss you baby boy

One year ago today…at about 2am my son was born still. Just a short time prior this his birth my wife and I heard the worst words anyone can hear…”there’s no heartbeat.”  I can still hear the doctors words in my mind.  They, along with the ultrasound image of my son lying still are forever…

Still Seeing Green

Kami and I are still getting pics in and we love all of the support! There is still time to send us your pictures…we are accepting them through August 11, as that was the day one year ago when Lukas was born still.  We have gotten quite a few pics but we are still short…
