Celebrating Week 15!


You are so very loved. Even now.


It’s party time! On Sunday, we’ll have officially entered the beginning of “no man’s land” – when our sweet little baby has been expected to no longer be alive. And, while we don’t know in total surety that it’s still alive, we have no reason to think it’s not.

(But if anyone wants to purchase an ultrasound machine for us, I’ll be sure to send you a real nice thank you note – if they’re on amazon, make sure you use my affiliate link. Ha ha!) 🙂

So we’re celebrating today. And pretty much every day we have the energy to. Because I believe that joy comes from a gift of grace – the gift of grace that gives us the ability to be thankful for something in whatever situation we’re in.

Because we’re – I’m – choosing to be thankful, still, even with our bleak prognosis, for every precious day we have.

Here’s a few photos of our celebrating from the last few days:

Chloe’s family album from school. You’re in my tummy there – with my tummy getting bigger and bigger and bigger….


The percentage the dr’s giving you for life. We’re hoping against those odds that he’s wrong.


Your first (documented!) picnic at the park! The girls couldn’t wait to show you their favorite slide. And Chloe just wants to teach you how to walk. Maybe she’ll get to one day.


A little bed rest company from the big sisters.


Our anniversary dinner – your dad and I have been married for 8 years. Yeah, I know. We’re old. 🙂



Movie night. The girls were watching a new movie – it got a little scary at one point and they wanted to “keep you safe”. 🙂





About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
