uneventful & thankful

today we had our 20 week scan, we now know that Xavier will have a brother:)

The scan showed his growth is right on track with a June 13 due date, his heart looked great, along with his internal organs & 5 fingers on each hand and 5 toes on each foot.

When aaron and i left the office, we realized we had both been holding our breath (just a little bit) but then were so thankful for such an uneventful visit.

That due date will put the boys about 14 1/2 months apart ... depending on the arrival of #2, they could be closer. We are all decked out for a second boy, one thing we will begin to look for/research double strollers! I am sure there will be other things our expanding family will need, but for now we are enjoying the uneventfulness!

PRAISE GOD, from whom ALL blessings flow.

3 years.

We celebrated Jeremy yesterday January 4th.
Forever a special day for our family. (and friends)
Hard to believe it has been 3 years.
His memory is so vivid, the time with him recorded in my heart.
But this year has been different.
Not as sad and certainly not as bitter. Xavier has made it easier to embrace the blessing, truly & fully embrace the blessing of Jeremy in our family.

While I would certainly prefer to have Jeremy with us now - I am comforted he is enjoying heaven, Jesus & like Jack said jumping on the bed with Grandma Diehl:)
