A Little Miracle, turns 2.

Some of you who aren't long time blog readers might not know that we tried a long time for Miss P.  Spencer was about 18 months when we started trying.  P was born when he was just over five years old.  I never felt like we needed to do invitro or anything, I always questioned if maybe 2 kids was plenty for us.  I often felt like I was losing my mind with just 2.

I was actually starting to look for a "real" job and kind of coming to terms with the fact that it just wasn't going to happen.  And I was starting to be OK with it.  I also told God that the baby factory would be shutting down at the end of the summer.  We found out we were pregnant on our 11th wedding anniversary -- August 15th of 2008.

And the pregnancy was horrid.  I learned that I couldn't have done it with an 18 month Spencer.  My pelvis separated, I had kidney stones, I was on a gestational diabetic diet for 32 weeks.  I had some weird right sided pain they could never figure out what it was but they thought it had to do with scoliosis.  Not to mention I went 12 days overdue.  I mean, seriously.  It just wasn't something I could do.

And that is my testimony of today.  God has a plan, he has a time for everything, and that timing is absolutely perfect.  I am SO lucky that I get reminded of that each time this adorable little face says "I luvva you."

Happy Birthday Miss P.  I must say that she truly is the cherry on our little family sundae.  We are so lucky to have her. 
I have some adorable pictures from Easter, but I was busy watching the royal wedding today, didn't get into photo editing.  Hope to show them soon.

In other news, Drew visited AZ and CO the past 2 days.  Nothing in particular came of it, except good experiences.  Drew really liked AZ but the job isn't full time {surprise. yay.}... we (Hilary is a broken record) really feel like there is something out there for us... just trying to use our patience in a productive way.  Because God's time is the right time.  Am I right? :)


  1. Oooooh, but AZ would be awesome since we frequent there! Love your story about Miss P and how she is a reminder that Heavenly Father knows all and is in comforting to remember.

  2. Happy Birthday, little P! She is such a light! : )

  3. Besides the awesome picture, that could win a contest somewhere...I love the honesty about horrible pregnancies. I had several. The end result is worth it, but the suffering can be huge. I hope some sisters out there will benefit from your message that they're not alone in this. Some of us are not made to have babies easily.

  4. Yep. I love looking back at my life and seeing God's hand in so much, and how wise he is, too!

    Miss P is adorable. I hope I get to meet her someday before she grows up too much. Happy Birthday!

  5. I am always having to remind myself that God's plan trumps mine. It is always better that way!
