My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

5 months old!

I can't believe our baby girl is five months old already! Her actual five-month milestone was Friday, November 6. She's growing up so fast. The most fun new developments in the last month have all been about her personality. She has the greatest laugh ever, giggles at everything. I can't wait to learn more about who she's going to be. Whatever it is, I have a feeling she'll think its funny. She's starting to use her hands more and more, grabbing at things you put in front of her, or just at whatever's closest ... which is often my hair or neck. She's also starting to really put on some weight, which is so fun. Its the one time in life its not only OK, but even super cute, to have several chins and wrinkles in your thighs. She wasn't in the best mood for this month's photo shoot, but we caught a few good moments anyway. Enjoy!


I love her eyes! She gets those, and her long eyelashes, from her dad.

She loves her fingers.

I think she might be trying to fit all ten fingers in there at once...

And .... we're done with the photo shoot.
