Ever had something happen and you immediately think, "thank you, Lord protecting me and my family!"? I had one of those moments yesterday.
I made Jeremiah oatmeal for breakfast and then boiled some eggs for myself. Didn't think anything of the fact I used the stove till I was making Jeremiah his afternoon snack. I grabbed a towel to dry off his highchair trey. Once I was done with it I tossed it on the stove and got back to work on the snack. I start to smell something smoking. I look and the towel had landed on a burner, THAT WAS ON and was smouldering! I grabbed it and tossed it away from the burned, turned off the stove and kept an eye on Jeremiah so that if I need to grab him and run I could. Thankfully, the towel didn't ignite and where it had started to catch fire was out within seconds. Scared the snot out of me! I'm so thankful that I caught it before it ignite. And that there were no issues from having left a gas burner on low all morning! Yesterday I caught a glimpse of how much Got protects me and my family everyday!

It's a...

BOY! That' right, we're having another little boy. We are thrilled! They started the sonogram, pointed the head, belly and said "and it's a..." Matt and I both saw right. I said, "I was right!"
His sweet little feet.

Here he is, Ephram Brant.

Should of been

Today was our due date. I should have a new born baby in my arms, or have one any day now. Instead, I'm five days from finding out if a little boy or girl will be joining my family in May.

I'm filled with such mixed emotions. I'm sad thinking about the baby I won't know this side of Heaven. But thrilled thinking and dreaming about the child I'm carrying. I'm relieved to have gotten pregnant again so quickly. It's helping make this day easier.

While I'm so glad to be pregnant, the baby that we lost this spring is missed, loved and remembered. And always will be.
