Hi, I’m Ariana (aka becoming-mom). I am a 30 something self admitted helicopter mom with a habit of blurting out everything about infertility, pregnancy, birth,  parenting, photography and just about anything else to anyone who will listen.

I am an infertility success story, NPR junkie, jewelry designer, former singer songwriter and house bloggerphotographer and former web designer.

My son Jasper was born August 19, 2008 and it was a rocky start to say the least.

We are survivors of reflux, tongue tie, overactive let down, heart murmur, coombs positive, food allergies/sensitivities, laryngomalacia, dysphagia and more.

Through the miracle of IVF, we are now expecting TWIN GIRLS (!!!) in the fall of 2012 (see lumpy belly to the left) – so things are about to get a lot more hectic around here!

Feel free to contact me anytime at ariana @ becoming-mom dot net.

Thanks for sharing in the journey.
