What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

history lesson!

In honor of Charli's upcoming birthday I thought it would be fun to see what I was writing about one year ago....

amazing thoughts :-)
okay....so Chad and I are sitting on the couch tonight and this is what comes out of his mouth...

"this past sunday we were carefree and just running around doing whatever we wanted to. next sunday we could be running around without a clue trying to learn how to change diapers!"

what a difference a week can make! I often am amazed by how much life changes in a year, thinking about how much life has changed in the past year for people around me. and now i am thinking, how much difference one day will make in our lives once this baby makes his/her appearance!

the closer we get to the big day the more scared I am getting! i am blessed to know so many great moms...how can i live up, how can i be one of them?!

Generally before I do something, I feel like I have had some sort of 'training'...but i can honestly say that i don't know what I will do when I realize this baby is ours for keeps - and someone isn't coming to pick him/her up after a few hours.

really...the next post I make on here, could have pictures of the baby...talk about making this whole pregnancy a reality :-)




wow...I remember typing that!! I had to laugh when I read "I am amazed how much life can change in a year..." I had NO idea what our life would bring this year. After this past year I can't help but be scared to see what next year brings - but excited all the same!!! After all, after this year - next year can only be better!!!!!!

I will post more updates about Charli later today!

Catching up on your entries before I come to Nebraska to see the precious one. So excited that we will be there for her birthday. Brenda, I laughed when I read that you are thankful when you see a bluebird. That has always been on my list of special gifts also. Seeing a bluebird can make a day. I wish lots of bluebirds for you, Chad, and Charli. See you soon. AJ

I did this same thing last night! It was so funny to read what I wrote a year ago before little Mia completely changed my life! I found it interesting that a little over a week before she was born, I was writing about how she was making weird movements and I couldn't figure out what she was doing. Knowing what I know now, I think she was getting herself in the breach position! Little stinker. LOL!
