Hello and welcome to Pitter Patter of Baby Feet!
My name is Liz. I’m a stay-at-home mother to beautiful 7 and 4 year old’s, and huge Disney fan. For me, there’s nothing more rewarding in life than being a mother!
After 2 1/2 years of struggling to get pregnant, my (ex) husband and I finally conquered infertility. With the right fertility treatment, we were blessed with an amazing two amazing boys!
Through all the pain of infertility, every dollar spent and tear shed was worth it. Infertility changed my marriage and my life overall. But it doesn’t define me. While we need to pursue more treatment to have more children, infertility changed my life for the better!
I now have great appreciation for just how special motherhood is. I believe there’s nothing more important than raising descent human beings in this world. Let’s face it… The world could use more descent human beings.
Now, my life has taken on a whole new meaning in regards to motherhood. My oldest was diagnosed with autism at three years old and my youngest has been diagnosed with seizures. Every day is a challenge, but the joy of being their mom outweighs the disabilities.
Before starting my journey through infertility and motherhood I received a Masters in Forensic Psychology. I worked a variety of counseling positions including counseling people in crisis situations and foster children.
While counseling others is beyond rewarding, motherhood has proven to be just as rewarding and tough. Every day in mommyhood is filled with joy, laughter and utter chaos. Many days I feel like my son pushes me to the brink of insanity. But, that’s mommyhood.
My blog name got its start from my infertility journey. I would always say to my husband (through tears sometimes), “All I wanna hear is the pitter patter of baby feet in our house.” Now, I hear my two boys running through the house every day. Nothing’s better than that!
