A day I must acknowledge

So a year ago today I found out I was pregnant.

I remember waking up and feeling like I had not slept at all. Being so tired I wanted to fall asleep in my coffee only my coffee didn't sound good. What the what? That was a big red flag for me.
I took this picture that morning and sent it to Michael saying "I'm exhausted but he's cute!"


Grayson and I went to my mom's to make sauce and so on my way home I stopped at the store to grab chip dip because I could think of nothing else and decided to grab a pregnancy test. They only had the cheap store brand and I almost didn't take them because I like my First Response one ha!
It was raining when we were leaving to head to Gigi's house

I had butterflies in my stomach the whole way home wondering what the outcome would be. I tried not to get my hopes up because it was about 5 days before my missed period and so it was early.

Grayson had stayed at my mom's house for his nap and such so I had the house to myself.

I took the test and saw it turn almost  instantly. I took a picture and sent it to Michael ( I'm not one for a special reveal) He called right away and said your joking right?
Two positive!!!

So I took the second one when he got home and we text them to my mom because we need all the opinions. It was faint but as they say a poitive is a positive. I knew I was pregnant. The next day Michael bought me a digital one and the words were there flashing PREGNANT.
One more confirmation!

I had no idea on this day a year ago after suffering a devestating loss two months prior that I would be sitting here today with my healthy sweet 3 kiddos. I'm blessed, I'm so happy, and I'm also in a chaotic time, but one that I wouldn't trade for the world.
My sweet sweet babies. I love them more than words can say and I'm just filled with so much thanks that God entrusted them to Michael and I!

I will remember this day. It was the day that gave me hope, that helped my heart heal a little bit again, that made me smile because God was giving me another chance.
