the monday snapshot – Kerri

Kerri of Uncommon Nonsense is going to open up the week for us with her contribution to the The Monday Snapshot – an evolution of the MMM feature, meant to bring the PAIL blogroll to life by giving its members a chance to feature themselves and make new connections.

I’ve been having a lot of these days lately…days where I look at my baby girl and realize she isn’t such a little baby anymore.  I don’t understand when it happened, but somewhere along the way she up and sprouted into a feisty toddler with of love of grass, sticks, and the wind in her hair.  Yesterday, I held her dirt covered hand in mine and we walked together for the first time…not me carrying or steering or helping her to balance, just walking with her.  It was a short walk, but a whole new world.
Here’s my Bean: 1) squishing up her face in pure joy; loving every minute of her first carousel ride, 2) fearlessly howling at the wind.


Now, get to know a little more about Kerri with her answers to the Monday Snapshot “5 Questions”:

1) How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?

I started blogging in late 2010, while already deeply entrenched in TTC#1 hell.  It was a way to deal with what I was going through, organize my thoughts, and find others who shared my story and could offer friendship and advice.

2) Tell us a little about your ALI journey and your family (3-4 sentences):

The cause of my infertility was never really explained;  I have mild PCOS, with irregular but ovulatory cycles. My beautiful daughter was conceived, with the help of IVF, and born exactly 2 years after I first tossed out my BCPs and started TTC.  I am now pregnant with miracle baby #2 (most surprisingly conceived without medical intervention)!

3) What makes you unique in the blogging world? (e.g. special talent, rare diagnosis, life experience)?

I’m fairly open in my blog, and I like to think that I have a special way of taking whatever I’m feeling inside and expressing it in words.  I’ve been told by some readers that my posts really resonate with them and make them feel more understood.

4) One word to describe yourself: 


5) What blog or website (IF or not) would you recommend to others? Why?

Lisa B’s “The Pursuit of Pregnancy.”  Lisa’s story is so incredible that it is practically a fairytale.  She is an incredibly strong, caring and persistent person, who has gone through the fires of hell to be where she is now (24 weeks pregnant with a baby boy).
