21 May 2013


May has been the month of many emotions.
every emotion.
confused about snow,
thrilled about 100 degrees!

on may 19th, 2013 our little 10 week old in utero baby went home to be with our Lord.

i have always had a fear of losing a little baby.
i know its common, i know many women have,
but i didn't think i could live through it.
but you know what?
i can.

i've been in very close communication with God.
ending with your will be done.

and it was.

god knows what's best for our family.
he also gives the peace that passes all understanding.
and friends to bring you dinner,
cry really hard with you on the phone,
& skittles for the boy.

when explaining to bentley that "bubbly bath" baby (his name choice) went back up to heaven, & we will just have to wait a little longer for another baby to be in our family (who will then be named "sleeper booboo") he simply replied with "AWE!" as in, awe shucks.
i like his perspective.
we are disappointed,
but we know heaven is an awesome place for that baby to be.
