against doctor's orders.


yep. after 5 tests at home, and 2 at the doctor it's confirmed. i got a "barely positive" so the nurse said "you really are just a little pregnant!"

4 weeks.

nervous about seeing our obgyn since she didn't want us to try for 3 months. she did not approve of my "let's just leave it up to God" answer.

also nervous to share the news, but after thinking and talking about it, we know it's okay. there is no way we could have gotten through the miscarriage without the support of friends and family.

just that many more prayers this time around.

plus we have an extra angel up there now!

excited to share this wonderful time with my sister-in-law whitney. we always joked about it! wish we were closer, distance wise.

congrats to our friends bryan and krystal who told us their news the same day dave and whit did. lots and lots of babies!

happy day!

thanks! yea, i wanted james to be in the picture, his hands instead, but he looked at me like i was crazy. i think it was the makeshift tripod i had set up though. :) i'll make him do it sometime! and the picture with the teeth, oh goodness he was being stubborn!

It's a baby epidemic! I am so excited for you, Shel. I have numerous friends who had an angel the first time, and are now holding the results of an almost immediate second time in their arms. This is a beautiful journey.
