Today.....was a good day

Today was a good day indeed! 

Ok, I'll be honest. 

I was a blubbering mess today.


Today I got to see my babies.

Ashley had an appointment today and they did a 3D ultrasound.

 Our little girl

Our sweet boy

Today I got to see, really see our babies. 

These pics really made it REAL for me today. 
And it just made me so grateful.
I felt so much love.
So much warmth.
I felt surrounded by the Spirit.
And I felt the love that my Heavenly Father has for me, for us, for our family.

They are real.

This experience is truly a miracle and the greatest blessing I will ever know in my lifetime.


Ashley also confirmed that our little boy has MOVED!

The placenta has moved and the bleeding has stopped.

The power of prayer my friends - is real.

Thank you for each and every positive thought, prayer...wish. 
We are truly in the presence of angels.

21.5 weeks

 Ashley is feeling great. 
She is truly rocking it.
I am in constant awe of her attitude and her faith.
 Our babies are so lucky to be able to spend this time with her.
Time is flying.
Easy for me to say.

I finally am feeling comfortable in buying things for the babies. 
I really feel like this is our chance.
These are our babies.

I just can't wait.
I can't wait to hold them.

I can't wait to be a mom.

To top it all off - I got my first shower invitation in the mail.

A bunch of girlfriends are getting together in Utah next month to celebrate.
My lovely friends are coming in from Oregon, California, Idaho and Utah to help me celebrate this wonderful occasion.

This invitation brought more happy tears to my eyes because...


I just thought I was never going to get one.
I never thought my name would be on an invitation.
I never thought so many wonderful people would gather together to, us...them.

I am humbled.

I can't wait to celebrate. 
I can't wait to be in the presence of such wonderful women who have played such a significant role in the many phases of my life.

Today.....was a good day.

PS! Another gift at the door! More onesies.
Thank you to whoever is making time fly and making it fun!

I just had a thought about you and the "still not" blog as I put my 3 month old IVF miracle to bed just now, and wanted to check your blog, as I'd done a few times while I was pregnant, in the hopes that you may have had some success as we had. But I wasn't expecting to read the amazing story or faith, trust, and love you and your sister-in-law have.

I am so thrilled for you and Jason, Molly!

I'm sure you know, but you were never forgotten. Not by me, and definitely not by our Heavenly Father.

Life is beyond super sucky sometimes, but I'm so glad things are working out for you.

Lots of love and best wishes for all of you!
