As Amber changes this blog seems to change with her. 
What started as what I thought would be your run of the mill mom blog has turned into something quite different.
The goal is still to capture our daily life for family and friends who can't be near us. 
A glorified (public) baby book or should I say baby brag book!

It has also become an educational tool. An easy way to explain to everyone Amber's medical needs.
Thinking back to before we had Amber's diagnosis we were constantly looking and hoping for any Dr to recognize something about Amber. I can still remember the feeling when her metabolic Dr.s told us her features weren't out of the norm for them. 
Maybe that's one of the reasons why I keep up on my blogging for the other I-Cell families and parents who searched like we did to find some kind of comfort in similarity. 

Which brings me to the current changes. 

First of all our title/name has changed. From "And Baby Makes Three" to "Amber's Adventure"
This is something I've been thinking about changing for a while now. 
Please note the URL has not changed, it is still!

Second I've added "Coming Events" to the left sidebar. 
Now you can keep up with what's going on!

Third, I've changed around the labels (also left sidebar). 
Now you can easily find more specific things about Amber like, her g-tube or previous hospital stays.

I think like any blog it's still a work in progress and I'll probably be tweaking how it looks over the next week or so. Feel free to let me know what you think of it or what you'd like to see or hear about!

Also just so you know what's going on with Amber she had another rough night and most of the day. Her fever got extremely high but once it broke she seemed a lot better than she has been. 
I'm hoping that she'll just keep getting better from here on out. 

I'm also not sure why my blog reposted the post below this one, it's from before Amber was born!!


  1. I like the changes! They look great & should serve your new/changing purpose really well! I know blogging can be time consuming but I think it's time well spent, especially in your case. Your blog is such a precious collection of priceless pics & a valuable record of information for yourselves & others.

    Happy Mothers Day, MommaSkye.

  2. Schuyler, you are an incredible woman. Your blog is such a sweet gift to me. It makes me feel very much a part of your lives even though we are sooooo far apart. Thank you! With all that you have on your plate, you always take time to share the details of life and I really, really appreciate you for that!
    I was thinking earlier this week that it really isnt fair...I really havent been fair! You post your thots, and all thats going on in your lives, and beautiful pictures of Amber that keep me smiling...and I should be doing the same for you! You should get to smile over pics of our family and see what is going on in our daily lives too! So I think that will be my goal for the summer...I'll make a blog!
    Your blog is not only a gift to me, but is very much a gift to other I-cell families. I have appreciated getting to know some of them thru their blogs and on FBook, and I know that there is a wealth of information on your blog that is helpful and encouraging to them. God is using you to bless others Skye, and Ambers life brings so much joy to all of us! Thank you for sharing life with us so consistently! Happy, Happy Mother's Day! ♥♥♥

  3. Amber... you have such a wonderful mommy and daddy. Thanks for letting us share in the joy of your life. Lots of hugs from your i-cell family in Texas :)
    And Happy Mothers Day to you mama Sky!
