5 years ago...

Five years ago today Mark and I did one of the hardest things we have ever (and hope to have to) EVER do...we drove home from the hospital with 1 baby when we were expecting 2. We came home to a house that we had been preparing for 9 months...a house prepared for 2 baby boys.

Wyatt as so tiny he was dressed in a Build-A-Bear Cardinals outfit...something so tiny but sooooo loved!!!! We spent 4 days in the hospital. Personally, I thought I had come to "terms" in hospital. It was like a safe bubble. It's when we entered the outside world it became more real than ever. I still get short of breath thinking about going through all the clothes and baby items. There are items we left in their room, items and d├ęcor that is still there today...5 years later.

Then I think about how far we have this beginning of the year the Lord revealed this verse to me and it's been one I have claimed for 2015:

"To those who mourn, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair." Isaiah 61:3

We are so thankful for the perfect healthy baby boy that we have been given to raise here on Earth. The boy who brings so many people joy. He puts a smile on the faces around him all the time!

Wyatt changed our lives forever...Life is so much sweeter with him in it!


  1. Happy Birthday, Wyatt! It's been so much fun watching him grow. You have beautiful children and I think of you a lot, especially this time of year. Prayers!

  2. I can't even imagine what that must have been like for you, and I imagine it is still hard each year. And Wyatt - he is getting so big! Such a handsome little guy!

  3. I am so sorry sweet girl... I can only imagine how hard that was for you all 5 years ago! Too currently Happy Birthday sweet Wyatt!
