Come out come out wherever you are!



I read many blogs. Tons in fact. 65 to be exact.
Blogging is great for keeping up on peoples lives.
And I know there are a bunch of people who pop in here fairly often. I know there are almost 50 of you a DAY! So I am calling you all out. Very rarely do I get comments from most of you, so here is my challenge. Leave me a comment. I will take off the word verification so all you have to do is post. I really wanna know who you are and how you happened on my blog.

Some of you I know, some I have chatted with and others...? so please take a minute to say hello and leave a comment on how you found me. Thanks!

Kara said...

Hi, my name is Kara and I live in Rochester NY. My sister had a miscarriage two years ago, she had found out about NILMDTS, that is how I came upon your blog. I haven't commented, I was not sure how it was to get comments from someone you don't know. I feel comfortable now to leave a comment to you in the future.

Hello my name is Melissa and I am from California. I came across your posts from NILMDTS because I had premature twins last year and almost lost my baby girl.I am a stay at mom of 7 little ones and I find your blog entertaining! I love your sense of humur(now if only I could spell ha ha). Congrats on the new little one! Take care of yourself.

I don't think I officially started reading your blog until after you found out about Jonathan. I love reading blogs and I especially love yours! You always have something to say whereas I struggle about what to write for myself! Keep up the great work Jaimey!

MissyJo said...

Hi, my name is Melissa. You married my brother. ;-) But we go back way further than that. From the cancer days, to the security guard days...we have many memories!! I'm so glad you did this post, it's very fun to have people come out and introduce themselves. You have touched so many lives with your blog-it's wonderful!

Love you!

Lindsey J said...

hi Jaimey! It's me, Lindsey J from PGL :)

Jill said...

I follow your blog because I am too lazy (busy, actually) to drive a mile to your house :(

I know Jaimy from the apartment days in Hillsboro. I remember walking up the steps to my apartment with a sewing machine and Zach came out in introduced himself to me. I read your blog all the time, even though I never really comment on them. I think you have a wonderful family and I wish you all the best!

Heidi said...

Hi Jaimey! It's me, Heidi, from PGL, gdipes, and oh ya, I live in Hillsboro from time to time! We begin our trek back next week...so we'll have to get our boys together soon!

ruth said...

My name is Ruth and I live in Hillsboro. I found you today from the StyledBaby Blog. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop- I think we have a lot in common. I felt the urge to comment on many of your posts, but instead of looking like a crazy stalker, I thought it might be better to start here.

My name is Zack and I am married to a wonderful wife named Jaimey Starkey-Buquet. She is my wife, and the mother to my Son Grayson, my "Angel Baby" Jonathan, and my soon to be child.....

I follow this blog as I have never met such a strong, confident, and loving person as yourself, and it makes me proud to be able to read your posts. Also when I am having a hard day reading your blog helps me remember the father, husband, and man that I am always working to be, and to become.

Love Ya

Your Hubby.

Awww....that's my brother!!!

He's pretty amazing. You both are!

Jaimey said...

Trish- Here is her blog... http://thepioneerwoman.com/confessions

the whole page is really a blog, just sectioned off into cooking, homeschooling, photography etc. But confessions is everything else.

Kara, Melissa, Ruth- nice to meet you! Thanks for posting!

Tricia- thanks!

MissyJo- you really should keep in touch more and post so I know you are here! I had no idea you read my blog. :/

Heather- thanks for always showin the love!

Angel- Praying for you everyday! I hope your turn is soon! Hugs.

Melissa, Jill, Lindsey, Jessica, Heidi- thanks for always popping in! Nice to know I have such caring friends who check in on me all the time!

Zack- I love you too! Thanks for being supportive.

eireann said...

i don't remember how i found your blog, but i've know you since junior high. :) i love your blog and i'm really glad we have reconnected as friends!

Amy H said...

I read it as much as I can! =)

My name is Christina and I'm a member of TEU with you. I started following your blog last year right around the time we did the fund raiser for you. At the time I could not contribute to it, we were (and still are!) without full time jobs, and watching every penny.

Baseball Mom said...

I was directed to your blog when you were getting ready to have Jonathan. I might have commented once or twice, I really am not sure.

I really enjoy reading your blog. I was also excited for you when I read you were expecting again.

Sorry I have been such a quiet visitor. But like Kara, I was not sure about leaving a comment.

I will try to do better. I know I wish when ppl would visit my blog they would comment.

Have a good day!

maryH said...

Hi, Im Mary and Im on teu with you and have followed your blog since the fund raiser and pray for baby Jonathan every night :) I love following your blog :) my first one :)

Hi Jaimey
My name is Shannon. I live in Ontario, Canada and I have been following your blog for a while...mostly anonymously. I think that the courage and strength you have shown during the hard times your family has faced recently has been a true inspiration.

Anonymous said...

My name is Heather and I saw you on the yahoo gDiapers group and some coop groups. When you learned of baby Jonathon I knew you had a blog and ended up here. Your life's up and downs have been an inspiration to me. I am inspired by the way you handle life even when it feels like your world is crashing unfairly on you. I have kept your family in my thoughts and continue to hope for the best for you all!

jenni said...

Hey Jaimey! I always feel shy about posting comments- don't know why- maybe cuz I've been lame about blogging myself for about a year!

Anyway--- said in my best Who* voice, " I am here, I am here, I here!"

* original Who voice from Horton hears a who ,as read by Dustin Hoffman



Yes. I am a geek

Leslie said...

Hi again, It's Leslie from Austin. You've heard my story, but I thought I'd mention again that I find strength and inspiration from reading your blog. We are going through really hard times right now and I am tending to gravitate towards the positive and that is something you provide. I look forward to the G updates as my son is almost 2 so those stories make me smile. I love the idiosyncrasies of a toddler. I tend not to comment often as I feel your blog maybe is directed towards family and friends and I don't want to invade.

my3sons said...

Hi,
I have been lurking; but not sure if I have commented before. I don't even remember how I found your blog! I'm Katie and I am also a blog addict:(

Main Street Mom said...

I found you b/c you found me! Thanks for being a "follower" and for leaving an occasional comment! You blog with such transparency. Thanks for sharing your story.

Janna said...

You're my neice and have followed your blog since you sent out the link. I have watched you grow so much since you started and it really gives me insight to the person you are. You & Trish have both inspired me to write my own blog but time only allows so much so mine is only updated about once a week. Words sure don't flow as easily for me as they seem to for the two of you:O) Love you

Angel... said...

Jack, you are such a wonderful husband.. Jaimey is very lucky to have you as a hubby. You guys are in my prayers.
Angel

Jaimey said...

Eireann- thanks for following and I am glad we were able to reconnect so many years later!

Amy H- thanks! I love reading about whats happening with you Hickman's too!

Anonymous/Christina- Thanks for following from TEU. Great group of girls over there. Good luck with your job search too!

Baseball Mom- Thanks for reading. Feel free to leave a comment as often as you want! I love the feedback.

MaryH- glad I captured you! Hope I am the first of many blogs. Addicting isn't it. :)

Shan and Dave, Anon/Heather- Thanks, I am glad you know I have inspired someone. It makes me feel like all of this is worth it somehow.

Jenni- I had no idea you were reading! Thanks! And I now have your blog, so watch for a new follower! :)

Leslie- while my blog started out for family, it has become so much more. A journal for me, an inspiration to some and an insight into our lives that family wouldn't have otherwise. Comment away! I love to hear from my friends and if you are here you are very definitely a friend. :) HUGS! Thanks for all your email hugs and thoughts.

my3sons/Katie- glad I captured another blogaholic, its an addiction I am happy to share! thanks!

Main Street Mom- Thanks for venturing over! I am so glad I found YOU! You give me such great ideas for uses for my demarle!

Janna- Thanks for always being the main family support to me. I always know I can count on you and that means a lot to me. You blog is very informative and while you may feel like you are struggling, know it doesn't read that way! I love reading about all the stories you have of the family, and what is going on in your life too! Love you too!

Angel- Thanks, I am very lucky. I will pass on your message to Zack. :)

Veronica said...

Jessica said...

My name is Jessica and I met you on TEU when they did the fundraiser. My family has too much experience with anacephaly so you and I talked about that a little bit. I enjoy your blog and I am thrilled that you are expecting again!
