Baby # 2

It seems that Adeline’s going to be a big sister… We have known about this pregnancy since July, but with all the complications that followed Adeline’s pregnancy we wanted to store this up in our hearts until the time was right or when it became too hard to hide under oversized shirts and scrubs. This […] Read more…

The Race

When Adeline was in the NICU she got her feedings through a feeding tube that was in her nose. Every 3 hours the nurse would come in and hook up her feedings. Twice a day they let her try and drink from a bottle. This was one of the most exciting parts of the day […] Read more…

One Year

It’s been one year since we last held Adeline in our arms. We stood in her hospital room as we watched the nurses and doctors try to bring her back to life. After 8 minutes of rescue measures with no heartbeat I told them that’s enough, I just want to hold my baby. I held […] Read more…

Chapter 9

The other day as we were singing in church I saw a dad holding a little girl in a white dress and a big pink bow on top of her head and tears just welled up in my eyes and it was like the floodgates had opened. Uncontrollable tears just started pouring down my face. […] Read more…

KEUKENHOF

I know a lot of y’all have been asking about our time in the Netherlands so I thought of no better time to write about it than when it’s 104 degrees outside. I seriously don’t know how people lived in the south before air conditioning??? Ok so we LOVED everything about the Netherlands from the […] Read more…

Adeline’s Birthday Week

Lawson asked me if I was wearing a bow in my hair because Addie wore bows? I looked at him with a grin and said “maybe…” This week is Adeline’s birthday week. The week when parents plan a first birthday party, order a cute smash cake, and capture what it’s like for their baby to […] Read more…

Europe Part 2

I can’t believe it’s been a month since our Europe Trip! I guess it’s about time to post the rest of our pictures from Belgium… From Bruges we we took the commuter train to Brussels. I just love how easy it is to jump from city to city by trains in Europe! Brussels is about […] Read more…

Chapter 8-Adeline’s Birth Story

I guess there’s no other time than Mother’s Day Weekend to write about Adeline’s birth story…It was June 17th, 2018. It was a perfect summer day and Lawson was leaving town for a work trip the next day so we planned to hang out. We wanted to do something new, we never had been to […] Read more…

Europe Trip – Part 1

I’ve finally recovered enough from the jetlag to write a little about our trip to England, Belgium, and The Netherlands. Like I said before, last summer Lawson and I talked about taking Adeline to Europe when she was all better. As this year started we decided that after Lawson’s busy season we would take a […] Read more…

Chapter 7

It’s been awhile since I wrote about Adeline’s Story. I want people to know her story and see how our little baby girl changed us in so many ways, but at the same time every post is hard to write. It’s hard in the sense that everything we experienced, from finding out we were pregnant […] Read more…
