Wyatt Mark Schmitz-May 30th, 2010 6.14 lbs 19 inches








Exactly a week ago today, not only was my life was changed FOREVER so was my heart. Last Saturday night, 5-29-10, I woke up in the middle of the night having contractions. I began timing them to then realize it was time for the hospital. Mark and I gathered our things, said our prayers and headed to the hospital. I don't really even remember the emotions that we were feeling at the time all I knew was I was SO ready to meet our "boys." We did the normal check-in and were getting all set up.
At 8:06 I was rushed in for an emergency c-section and 8:13 a.m. Wyatt Mark Schmitz entered the world. He was 6.14 lbs and 19 inches long.
Jesus now has our little Ryder sitting on his lap. This was God's plan not ours, God is in complete control of this and now we have to have faith the Lord will carry us through. Saturday we said our final earthly goodbyes to Ryder but we know WE WILL SEE HIM AGAIN.
I didn't know what it would feel like to be a mother. Words can't even express the feelings that one has. I had so much joy but SO much sadness at the same time. Mark and I are clinging to the joys of having a child to bring home and the amazing feelings we have each time we look at Wyatt. He is truly a gift from the Lord.
I will do my best to keep you all posted on our little man...he is so precious and I can't wait to show you all so many pictures we already have and he is only 7 days old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. What a beautiful baby boy! I know that his twin brother is just as perfect. :) How incredible to think that he is resting in that glorious house not made with hands, feeling no pain, in perfect rest with God. I am praying for your heart, your husband's heart, healing in your family and that Wyatt may feel the boundless love you have for both him and Ryder. :)

  16. I have been reading your blog since you first announced you were pregnant with twins. I have been anxoiusly awaiting the "They are here!" post and my heart broke when I read this. I am so happy for you and your little Wyatt but so, so sad that he doesn't have his brother with him. When the times feels right, I do hope you'll share his story. I hope you are feeling well and adjusting to life as a new mom!

  22. Wyatt is such a beautiful baby! I just noticed your boys were born on May 30th. Well, that is mine & my twins birthday. We were both born 6 weeks early & had lots of problems after we were born. I (Bonnie)had hydrocephalus (fluid around the brain) & I had a ventricular shunt put in. My twin sister (Becky) had cerebral palsy. We are so lucky to have led a pretty normal life, but had it rough coming into this world. We both just had our first babies this past year. BOTH BOYS :) I just thought it was unique that your boys had our same birthday. I'm so sorry for your loss & yet so happy for you having one healthy, strong baby. God Bless :)
