I know these are like SO 2 years ago but I've always loved them from Anthro. Think I bought one for my bro and sis-in-law as an engagement present. But with the $28 price tag, I just never bought it for myself. UNTIL I saw them at Anthro the other day for $3.95!!! Couldn't believe my eyes. They had one N left and they also had a T so I got one for Tay's room too. =-)

Here we go....

...I'm not so sure I want to be doing this, but I'm going to anyways. I'm also not so sure I want to be starting to do this now, but I'm going to anyways. As of now, we are trying to add one more to our family. After years of praying and research and meeting new doctors, we have decided to "try" to have another baby of our own. For most people that decision wouldn't be a big deal. But for us, it has been a very big deal. Most people know our situation. My baby's come early. The second(30 weeker) came even earlier than the first(32 weeker), and according to "statistics" the 3rd one could come even earlier. Therefore, this has been a very hard decision. I'm not sure why I'm choosing to blog about it. A part of me wants to put our story out there in case there are other people in our same shoes, trying to make a similar decision. I know we will be judged and that's ok. Everyone has their own opinions and that's ok. One reason why I didn't want to write about all of this publicly was the fear of being judged. But here I am, and I'm going to be very real and honest. I probably won't have much to write about in the next couple of months. I think the real journey will begin when and if I actually get pregnant. I will probably end up on bedrest and will have PLENTY of time to update. But for now, this is where we are at in life. We are SO thankful and blessed for the 2 beautiful and healthy girls that we already have, but we feel in our hearts that there is room to love more. We don't feel complete. We pray EVERY day about this situation and wait patiently to see God's plan for our family, no matter what it may be....

Prayer Time

So tonight, just like EVERY night and EVERY time we pray, both the girls pray for a baby brother. Either one of our very own, or to adopt one. Tonight, Taylor's prayer went like this,

"...and I want to pray about adopting a baby boy. We don't know if it is going to be black or brown or maybe even clear, it doesn't matter..."

I'm assuming that clear means white. =-)

When I grow up....

...I want to be like my 5 year old daughter. I admire this little girl. She makes me want to be a better person. I can't even really put in to words what's going through my head right now. I'm not going to sit here and tell you all how special she is, although it's tempting. ;-) She helps me see ALL the things that I need to work on in my own life. I feel so blessed to be her mom and I am enjoying the relationship that I have with her and can't wait to see it grow. I love you Tay!
