Josie Update:

Last week Beth and Ashley received more bad news- in the ultrasound the doctors did not see a nasal bone which is another indicator of Down's. Please continue to pray for them and Josie. The doctors have told Beth they will not let her go past 39 weeks which is next week so she suspects at her appt next week they will set a day to induce. I will let you know more when I know more.

baby Josie

Most of you know my best friend Beth is announcement I made is here.

WELL she and her husband Ashley need lots and lots and lots of prayers. My heart is so broken for them right now and they need as many prayers as possible.

They got some news today that everything in their little girl, Josie's, heart may not have developed like it should. Basically there is a valve problem that is present in children with down syndrome. While she might not have downs she could still have this av defect and have to have surgery down the road or she may just be a small baby and the ultrasound could've caused shadows from bones etc. So there is nothing they can do but wait for her to come and keep monitoring her growth. Beth will go to the dr twice a week from now on. This is such a shock bc there has never been any indication that something was wrong with her heart. They went to the dr to check on her weight gain b/c she was on the small side. Josie is not due for 4 more weeks and all they can do now is wait until she gets here to know.

Please pray for them throughout the next weeks for peace, understanding, and miracles because we serve a God that is SO capable of them. I will keep everyone updated over the next few weeks.

Beach 2010

We had a great time at the beach last week. We went with my parents, brother, sis in law, and their 3 boys. My other bro and his family were not able to come with us and I definitely missed them and my sweet niece.
Florida was beautiful weather and not many other vacationers. One day we were the only ones at the restuarant. We went to eat every night at 5:30 or 6 and only waited 1 time to be sitted and that was only because they had a wedding party. It was perfect. The boys were all great and played well. They all loved the sand (it took Sawyer a little while to get used to) and swimming pool. Surprisingly they all liked the ocean and playing in the water too. We had a GREAT time it just ended too quickly.

ready, set.....


Riding in the race cars

My brother celebrated his birthday while we were there so I will officially wish him Happy Birthday on my blog now. Happy Late Birthday Bro.

I felt fine the whole time only a little pain on Saturday but it didn't stop me from hitting up the outlet mall on Sunday.

Mothers Day

I am so very thankful for this sweet baby boy that gives me the title "MOMMY".
I'm so very thankful for my wonderful mom. Thank you mom for being there for me over the past weeks and any time I have ever needed you. You are the best mom, grandmom, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I love you very much and so does your sweet baby boy.
