Dr. Seuss Feet

Even those who don't have kids, know that this weekend we pay homage to the greatest master of magical places and creatures; the king of the Fizza-ma-wizza-ma-dills, Nerkles, and Yinks, the Dr. Seuss himself.

Leo even put on his Lorax approved 7th Gen diapers just for him.

But Dr. Seuss, though he is a mad genius at stringing together unlikely vowels, he is also incredibly affirming and positive in his stories. His stories seek to inspire and uplift, and honestly, out of all the kid books on our shelf, his are the only ones that I will read to the kids with the same enjoyment every single time. And whichever one of his books it is that makes it onto the bedtime reading queue, its always one that seems to apply to our life. Take this one for instance....

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 
― Dr. SeussOh, the Places You'll Go!

“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life's A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you'll move mountains.” 
― Dr. SeussOh, The Places You'll Go!


  1. He is so beautiful. And strong. And smart:)
    I love you, Leo..
    It must be something, as everytime I watch him, he brings joy to my heart, and smile on my face. May God keep him safe and strong.

  2. Kyprian laughed his head off, watching Leo trying to catch the cat's tail. It's wonderful to see him so strong and active and curious.

  3. He truly is a miracle. :)

  4. Watching Leo crawl through 3 rooms today and spinning the pinwheel in the video...He is growing in leaps and bounds in so many ways! Dr. Suess was so instrumental in my daughter learning to read so early. He was a genius:-)
    May God bless you through this Blessed Lenten time!

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last. This blog has meant many different things to me over the past seven years, in fact, it has taken as many different manifestations as its subject matter, Leo the little lion! Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
