I think we both left my appointment today with smiles.
It was wonderful to hear the doctor say that everything looks great so far.
It was so reassuring to hear Baby Mac’s heartbeat. He found it right away. We were so thankful. The baby’s heart rate was 155 today. Cora’s was almost always 150.
So, we made it through another visit to the doctor. We were still so nervous, but I think it might just be that way for awhile. We just have to keep praying and trusting.
I have been having trouble getting excited about all the normal “fun” pregnancy things. It is just so different this time. So many mixed emotions. But, I wanted to document this pregnancy somehow for Baby Mac’s baby book. I saw this in my June Creating Keepsakes magazine. I thought it was a fun way to capture each month. So, here is a glimpse at my growing baby bump.
Thanks for praying for us today. Keep praying along with us for a healthy little baby! And keep praying for our healing hearts.
Just a quick update.
Cora’s (the shop) is still up and running. Our store is just EMPTY right now. We had to take a little break after all the Fourth of July craziness. We are hoping to start working on some more stuff next week.
We even broke down and bought a serger. It is currently still in the box. I think we are a little scared to touch it! Hopefully it will help us make the Cora dresses a little faster. There are so many new possibilities. Now, if we could just figure out how to use it!
Right now we are dreaming up some new ideas for Cora’s. We will definitely be restocking the Cora dresses and burpies. Hopefully you will be seeing some fun new stuff too.
Thanks for being patient with us. This has been such a great creative outlet for me and also a great way to continue to remember my sweet little girl. You all have been so supportive and encouraging as we have ventured into the Etsy world.
Keep checking back!
On a different note. I have my second appointment tomorrow. Will you please pray for us as we go back to the doctor’s office? We can’t wait to hear that little Baby Mac heartbeat again.
We LOVE having the young marrieds group from our church over for the 4th. It is so fun to spend time together. We are truly blessed with great friends.
We debated about having the party at our house again this year.
We weren’t sure how we would do with all the kiddos.
It turned out to be a beautiful Kansas day. It wasn’t even too hot.
We were so glad we could spend the evening with so many dear friends.
We made it through another holiday.
Over all the earth
When they posted the winners a few days later I couldn’t believe it.
Jess M…that’s me!!
I actually e-mailed them to make sure I REALLY was the winner. There are a lot of other Jess’ in the world right??
A few days later these pretty white wallflowers arrived on my doorstop. How fun!
I so wished Cora was here. I wanted to rush up to her room and hang them right away. They would have been perfect. It’s funny how even winning something can make me miss Cora.
I think I am going to wait to hang them. If we have another little girl I think I will put them in the nursery. Joel didn’t think they were manly enough for a little boy. So, if we have a boy I will have to find another home for these pretty little flowers.
I’ll let you know where they end up.
