Heather and Mike are getting married! Tonight we're celebrating with an engagement party at Heidi and Justin's house. I CAN'T wait!!! These two are so in love and make each other so happy - I am so excited to celebrate their engagement today. When I got married (six years ago) Heather was my rock. She went with me everywhere, helped me with every detail, and was an amazing support. I can't wait to do the same for you, Woods! When are we going wedding dress shopping!?!? :)
Congrats Mike and Heather!

Today is a tough day. Today was the day that I was supposed to have my little girl or little boy (for some reason, DJ and I both feel like it was a girl). Back in August, I learned that I had a partial molar pregancy, which stopped our child's beating heart at 10 weeks old. I didn't know this until I thought I was 16 weeks along. This was particularly devastating for me because I thought "how could I NOT have known?". My aunt nailed it when she said that miscarrying is an "emotional roller coaster". It really is. On one hand, I'm so blessed to have Jackson - who's healthy, happy, growing and mine. On the other, I know what a tremendous loss we've experienced because we know how AMAZING it is to have a baby. I'm still dealing with it all, I've been feeling good, but today is a hard day. Would we have been in the hospital today introducing Jackson to his little baby brother or sister? WOuld I have gone past my due date and be the size of a house right now? It's dangerous to say "what if", but in this situation I seem to do it all day long. On Sunday we'll go to a service at the site where our baby was buried. I hope that this will bring a sense of closure to us so that we can remember, but move ahead and make plans to grow our family.
On a more positive note, my amazing doctor, Dr. Wolfe, has given us the go ahead to try again. We're not sure yet when exactly we'll start trying, but I think it will be fairly soon. I pray. I pray OFTEN, that we will be able to have a successful pregnancy and to bring a healthy child into this world.

I've been pretty bad about about carrying my camera around with me lately, but at least I've been able to capture a few (poor) pics of Jack on my phone. Thank GOODNESS the iPhone is coming to Verizon! I'm already working on getting one. Here are a few recent pics of Jack:
This is Jack's favorite place to play while I'm making dinner. He takes ALL of my towels out of the drawer and then sits in it like it's a car.
Jackson sat on the floor for twenty minutes and "read" to me. :)
