A Little Good News (Hopefully)

As stated in my previous post, things have been rough lately for our family and many others.

I thought it was time to talk about something positive... like babies. What's not to love about babies?



I had my long awaited appointment today. The one where I told my Dr. that Caleb and I are more than ready for another little one. I don't know why, but I half expected to argue and plead with her on why I needed to be more aggressive this time, and get started on the same medications and fertility drugs asap.

Luckily, she was very much on the same page as me and she encouraged me to be aggressive. She said "Christine, we know what works for you so if you're sure you're ready, let's get started". I almost jumped out of my seat.

So after my yearly physical and a long conversation, I drove away with a smile on my face and several prescriptions in my hand.

As I drove away, it set in. I had forgotten how much it took and the many medications I was on (metformin, clomid, baby aspirin, pre-natal vitamins) to help me not only get pregnant, but to keep the baby. I used to joke to Caleb that I felt like an old lady with all of the meds that I had to keep track of.



I always told myself that I would never forget the journey we've been on and what a miracle Elliana was and is, and yet somehow, I've already taken that for granted. Now that I've carried and had a healthy child, I assume it will happen again. Just like that.

So here I am, staring at these prescriptions and I can't believe I'm ready to do all of this all over again. The medications (that honestly make me sick sometimes), the prayers, every month hoping for a "yes".

I just have to remind myself that every baby is a miracle, and a gift from God, and only he can give us the desires of our hearts.



So here's to trying again and praying that I'll be looking like this again soon. ;)

I love you!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
