Love for Family

The more I think about it... the more I am so blessed by my family. They come alongside us on this journey of life and especially my pregnancy. What an honor!

We celebrated my dad this weekend and his wonderful life including another birthday. It was special and here is a photo of daddy and his girls :)

 

This weekend my mom also tested out Jude's crib to make sure it was okay for him. She's not convinced and thinks the mattress is horribly uncomfortable. Ha! Only "Grandmama Joni" would do such a thing....

 

Josh and I have a REALLY busy week this week. As we saw the calm before the storm yesterday I couldn't help but pause and think about all we have. I am feeling so blessed lately. Especially with Valentines day tomorrow and being 34 weeks pregnant... I have to give praise and thanks! I am in love with my husband times a MILLION and this babe in my womb - my love keeps abounding!!

What are you praising God for today? Even despite hard seasons, there is always something to be thankful for... we are blessed!

LOVE that picture of your momma...and I agree, I think that baby mattresses are NOT comfy, but they are safe which I guess is the most important thing!

We are so blessed to have incredible family around us!

I'm thanking the lord for life, and more life. With all that's going on in the world I am thankful for my husband, my boys, and my new blessing growing in my stomach. Much like you, I am feeling full of life, and thanking the Lord every chance I get.
