I can’t believe that such a beautiful event was all for me!
Like the crazy obsessive photographer that I am, I had to take a few detail shots for myself. How could I resist?! And now I have a great opportunity for a way to express a huge thank you and share my story.
First, I would just like to let you know about this crazy year. I’ve really been waiting for this little one for about 6 years now. For all the years that past since my first child there, has always been something in the way of us continuing our family. I have a son that is 8 now and both of us have been pretty patiently waiting to add more life to our close bond of three. However, during those in between years we added our puppy Miley. Who we all adore here. My husband joked that it was either the puppy or a baby and then said to me, “Oh it will probably be both!” And in the end that’s what we will have.♥
At this time last year we got pregnant right away. We were thrilled and excited. At first I was very sick for the few weeks, but then felt better. And instead of waiting the three months to share the news we starting telling everyone. What could possibly go wrong right?! So unfortunately for us we did get the worse possible news at our Dr’s. visit. Our hearts were broken forever. We lost that little one and were left empty and filled with sadness. I haven’t been able to talk publicly about this, but I feel like all my loved ones could feel part of this pain. And now sharing in all our joy this whole pregnancy, you all have shown me the way you feel by your kind words, support, embraces, generosity, and deep love. I feel very connected to each of you. I have so much to be thankful for and most of all I am thankful for all of you!
And now I am excitedly awaiting my daughter to arrive. I hope I get the chance to hold her because she is so loved by all of you I’m going to be doing a lot of sharing!!
So here are just a few of the detail shots from the shower at the Redmond Ridge Community Center.
