Today

Today, I walked into the same doors I so sadly left one year ago today. But this time, I walked out with new ultrasound pictures of our growing little one and a smile instead of tears.

I won't lie, it was hard. My stomach was in knots and I was a mess but I got through it. As soon as I heard the heartbeat I cried, tears of happiness. The baby is still measuring ahead and had a perfect heartbeat of 171. The baby was moving all over the place and we got some good pictures.

So I survived today so far, and I am so glad we did our ultrasound today. It really made me be thankful on a day that it's so hard to be.

So now we're going to visit Nolan and release the butterflies my good friend sent us today. Hopefully the rain holds off and we can get some good pictures.

Keep the prayers coming for Amy, she is holding steady but is very sick. I'll update more when I hear from her again.

So happy Nolan gave you more good news today. I am certain he's watching over his little sibling and helping him or her stay healthy and strong for Mommy and Daddy.

Good job baby! Keep growing ahead so your mommy and daddy won't worry (as much).

I hope the rest of your day is peaceful. Thinking of you.
