I have always been that person who has wanted to wait until it was “safe” to tell people about our pregnancies. I will tell the very, very closest, those safest to my heart right away, but I will wait to tell the rest. I have called this “my safety zone.” I’ve never been a big… Continue reading Life, Loss and Celebration
In His Shadow
What do you do? You stare at the ultra sound tech, who was gentle and quick with the news, and you ask stupid questions over and over, like, “what do you mean there’s no heart beat?” When there’s no answer that comes from her mouth, and only several unsatisfying, “I’m sorry’s,” you turn to… Continue reading In His Shadow

In retrospect, I have even more confidence that the c-section was exactly the right call with Elliott. I know it may sound crazy, but despite the facts, there was always this teeny,… Continue reading The Day That Selah Came Part II
The Day That Selah Came
Note #1: Because my firstborn, my sweet baby Elliott, was born via c-section, we had to make a choice about the type of birth we wanted to have with our daughter. A VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean) has its risks because it is possible (though unlikely with the type of incision I had with my… Continue reading The Day That Selah Came
Today is one of those days, where I wake up and am flooded with gratitude from the moment my day begins. Not because life is easy right now. Not because we have everything figured out. Not because I slept well. Not because I’m comfortable. But because God is good. So, so good. I am overwhelmed… Continue reading So grateful.
The Baby Beta Belly
One day, Suzanna and I were waiting in the border line and we had a conversation that went something like this: Me: “Hey, I’d really love to take some pregnancy family photos, and I was wondering if you were any good at taking pictures…?” Suzanna (without hesitation and with a huge smile): “No!! I’m not!!… Continue reading The Baby Beta Belly
