Wow, its been a while since I posted, life has been crazy and hectic. We have been through so much in the last 6 months or so. First, in June, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is currently undergoing chemo and radiation and is hanging in there. In July, we found out that we were pregnant with baby #2 and were soooo excited!! What a bright spot in everyones lives. Then, on September 3, during a routine doctors visit, we learned our sweet baby had no heartbeat. I was just out of my first trimester and thought I was in the "safe zone". What we didn't know was that our baby had died around the 9 week mark. It was an awful day and has been extremely hard. All I can say is, God is faithful and has never left us in our time of intense sorrow. We know that He is in control and that He has a plan. We have so many things to be thankful for and are so incredibly blessed. We are reminded of these things this Christmas season, and choose to give thanks in the midst of the storm. Here is a picture of our growing boy, who will, believe it or not be 3 next month!!
We had an awesome trip to Florida! The weather was gorgeous, and CJ couldn't get enough of the beach! We have created a little beach bum, and of course I am so proud! So sad our vacation is over and can't wait till next year!
As much as it seems as winter is dragging on, I can't believe March is here. Spring is right around the corner, it can't come quick enough!! I can't wait to get CJ to the playground and outside again!! We have had a rough few weeks. First, CJ had croup, SO not fun, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Then, he got a double ear infection, which he is still taking medicine for. Poor little guy, feel so badly for him!! All in all, he's been a really good sport. He got his first "real" haircut last week. He sat in the chair pretty well until the clippers came out, then he wigged out a little. But, we got through it, and he looks really handsome!! Here are a few pics...
We finally had our first MAJOR snowfall this winter here in MD. Last year we had soooo much snow and so I was worried we would be in for it again this year! You never know, we still have all of February to go!! CJ really likes the snow this year, as compared to last year. He threw a FIT when I told him it was time to come in! We built our first snowman, made snow angels and just had fun! You would never know that I grew up in New England because our snowman is a little lame!! Hope you enjoy these!!
