Little Miss Princess, of course!

 Gosh I love that face!!

 DIVA!!!!  She loves dressing up and had to get a thorough look at this "so pretty" dress she was wearing.  Had to fight tooth and nail to get her to take it off for bed too...

 I seriously want to cry at this picture...  I blink and see myself helping her fix her hair for Prom and blink again and there she is, wearing a white wedding dress as I stand in awe of my just turned two year old!

 She takes her role as Princess very seriously.  No goofing off while in paparazzi view.


Do these pictures of Little Miss (She's 2!) make up for my absence?

Pretty please?

What if I could distribute all the reaming "boring" candy Charles picked out?

It still absolutely baffles me that just three years ago to the day this was my Halloween.  My mom came to visit and encourage me as I was loosing hope on our infertility journey.  I'm so grateful for my mom and our miracle of Little Miss!


 Hope everyone had a safe and memorable day!

Polar Opposites

Quick recap-

I have a two year old!?  Oh my goodness!  That's just insane!  More on that in another post.  This one is dedicated to the realization that my husband of 9 years and I are polar opposites.  D'oh.  Don't opposites attract?  :-)

So one of my brothers posted this personality test on Facebook and since insomnia struck me early this morning, I succumb to it.  Then when Charles got up, I made him do it.

That's not the bad part.  The bad part is the Googling that I did to see how "compatible" we are based on our personality results...

Pretty much.  My ESFP and his INTJ are the exact opposites of one another!  "Death spiral" came up several times as well.  Our personalities are generally not able to stand even being in the same room together.

Wow.

But it does make sense as to why our first few years of marriage were complete you-know-what!  Seriously.  Only by the Grace of God and the stubbornness in both of us that we are still married after that should have been honeymoon phase!

You know what I read though?

I read yet another reason to stick it out through thick and thin to prove "science" wrong.  Because I'm all about proving people wrong...

That I am not easily put in a box, though the description does fit me pretty accurately as it does him.

I read that where I am weak, Charles is strong.

Where Charles is weak, I am strong.

Our ESFP and INTJ are a match made in heaven!

Go ahead.  Take the personality test and share with me your results!  Did your significant other take it as well?  How "compatible" are you?  Are we the only opposites attract crazies?  :-)

Random connections

Little Miss threw us some "red flags" so of course I went to Google. I was encouraged by a random MTHFR connection (and given I have hetero C677t I was intrigued) so I researched more.

I was lead to believe MTHFR effected me as for conceiving and cardiovascular health. That was it.  Tonight I learned so much more....

56 connections to MTHFR.

Wow.

Did you catch #1?!?!

Autism.

In other links I came across, the statistics were upwards to like 98% of Autistic individuals have MTHFR gene mutation!

And in another website I came across during my research, Natural Killer Cells.

Check out the bottom of page 16! 

Or just for the quote- "Patients with raised natural killer cells (CD69 - CD56 - CD16) respond will with treatment by medical mushrooms. These have been well proven in Japan to moderate the immune system of HIV patients and form a mainstream part of conventional medicine treatment in japan for AIDS patients. The same action has been observed in women with raised NK cell levels. Patients are given a combination of three mushroom types (Cordyceps, Reishi and Coriolus) in tablet form."

I am just curious if anyone has successfully treated Natural Killer Cells naturally with medical mushrooms???

What are your thoughts on all this? I am definitely going to have Charles tested and pending his results, Little Miss.

Now to convince all blood relatives to get tested and friends with their own "red flags" of "motherfather" as my mom loving refers to MTHFR.

Have you/your family members ever been tested?
