Mardi Gras

Casey wasn't able to go the parade because he was sick. So, Uncle Caleb took his place.We had allot of fun but it was so cold! Jadyn took home beads, stuffed animals and a double ear infection! Casey walked in her room after rest time the other day and beads and stuffed animals were everywhere on the floor. He asked her why she threw all of her stuff in her bedroom floor. She said her bed was the parade and she was throwing it to the people. Happy Mardi Gras!

7 months and growing!

Latest family picture taken at my parents house in December. Lord-willing next year there will be a sweet little boy in the picture with us! He is all Jadyn talks about. She and I made snowflakes the other day and she wanted to make him one. She constantly wants to talk about him and prays for him for every meal and bedtime.
I spotted a little the other day bc I overdid it. Of course my mind goes to the worst.... I told my mom I hate thinking that way but the first person I think of is Jadyn .....ok, everything is fine...dont want to chase that rabit.
Jadyn turns four tomorrow. Maybe i'll post some pics of her princess birthday party. The girls are getting their make up done and finger nails and toe nails painted...should be fun...looking so forward to it and for it to be over! haaa

Jonathan God has given

Well, it's a boy and we have decided to name him Jonathan "God has given" or "gift" Jadyn 's name means "God has heard." I love the sound of Jadyn and Jonathan together. Casey and I just wanted a name with meaning. I still can't believe I am pregnant! I will be 19 weeks tomorrow.
Jadyn prays for her baby brother constantly...when we eat dinner, on Sunday am, night time devotional,on the way to school..."God, help my baby brother grow in my mommy's tummy." It's so sweet. She asked me to throw her on the bed tonight (a tradition her dad does after bath). So, I did and she said, "that was good..you didn't hurt baby Jonathan?"

Where to start?

I have no idea where to start since it's been almost a year since i have blogged. I know it wont be consistent, but maybe every now and then. I think I more addicted to facebook...and I feel this guilt when I am on the computer all the time....I always think what could I be reading or doing etc...I ignored the guilt tonight.

Let's see.....

The last couple of months have been a whirlwind!

  • found I was pregnant

  • My mom had a stroke

  • financial challenges in our family/ministry...............................yet God has been so Faithful.

Pregnant! Casey and I wanted a baby two years ago. So, we aggressively tried with 5 injection cycles. I could write a book on that in itself. 4 failed and one miscarriage. This past summer I think was the hardest few months of our life...strains of beach project, traveling , wisdom teeth, and the longing of wanting another child.

Casey' s mom really has been so good for me in the fact that she has walked in my same shoes. She watched her siblings and friends pop out babies while she couldn't. I dont know why God has allowed this but I am grateful for so many reasons. I feel like I know Him in a deeper, unique way. He has taught me that He is still good even when I dont get what I want. He has made the gospel sweeter to me. I feel I enjoy Jadyn so much more. I literally dont get much done around the house bc I am playing with her and just enjoying her....GRACE, grace...God's grace. (however, of course there are times I want my time)

Casey 's mom knew a doctor from Dothan, Al who gave me medicine that lowered insulin and estrogen that helped me ovulate...and on the third month it worked. When I saw positive on that pregnancy text...I fell to the floor weeping. I couldn't believe it. I am now 12 weeks and still get nervous at time but I know who allowed me to get pregnant and I cant controll anything. We are so looking forward to another child...and a sibling for Jadyn.

In Feb we all went to the St. Rosa beach to Lindseys aunt's beach house for Mardi Gras break. It was a fun get away. The beach was so cold! It's fun having Jamie apart of the family. Who would ever have known that the freshman girl I met 5 years ago would be my future sister in law. It's such a blessing and a joy. I look forward to the years ahead!
