3 Years

Dear Baby Tyler,
       It's been three whole years since you've gone to heaven.  Mommy's heart still aches for you and misses you so much.  There is still not one day that goes by that  I do not remember you or think of you.  You were here for such a short time, but had a big impact on my life.  Because of you I am closer to God and I am trying my best so that we can be together one day.  I will always think of you and miss you.  I think of the toddler you would be now, and I wish so much that it were true.  I know you are safe and at peace.  You will always be my first baby.  Please watch over us.  We love and miss you.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone!  I am so thrilled that 2012 has finally arrived!  My baby girl will be born this year.  God has been so amazing to us.  I have been so incredibly busy and I haven't been able to update.  I had an ultrasound at my December appointment and Charlotte is doing just fine.  She weighs 2 pounds 7 ounces.  My January appointment also went well and her heartbeat was 157 bpm.  I am just amazed with her and I haven't even met her yet.   I love her so very much already.  I am currently 31 weeks 4 days.  It is just amazing how far we've come.  I have just a little over 8 weeks left:)  I am anxious to meet my girl, but want her to bake in this oven as close to 40 weeks as possible. 

My husband and I attended a "Labor & Delivery" class on Tuesday.  I found it to be very informative, but a bit scary too.   However, I know I will do whatever it takes to get my sweet girl here safely.  I am still in awe that I even have reason to go to a class like that.  My shower is next weekend.  Can you believe it?!?  There was a point in time when I wasn't sure that I'd ever have a baby shower.  Now it is just around the corner!  I still find it hard to believe.

I am also very proud to say that I made my first purchase for my Charlotte.  I got her a picture frame that I am going to put her ultrasound picture in for my shower.  The picture in the frame is what came with it.  I just haven't had time to change it out yet. 

When I saw the quote at the bottom of the frame it brought tears to my eyes.  This journey has not been an easy one, but it is one that gives my baby girl tons of love.

I have a feeling 2012 will be one of the best years of my life!  In a little more than 8 weeks, my Charlotte is due to arrive!
