So now that is out of the way, we have some exciting things going on in our life. For those of you that don't know, we are expecting a little boy in January! We are so excited! What many of you may not know is that back in December, I found out that I was pregnant. When we went for our first ultrasound, the baby looked a little small, but we didn't necessarily think there was anything to be concerned about. When we went back again, we saw that there were actually twins in there, but something just wasn't right. So, after several weeks of waiting and looking, sadly we found out that we had lost both babies. It was a devastating time for us, but God shown His grace to us in unexpected ways. We have an INCREDIBLE group of friends around us who really took care of us through the whole thing. More than anything, what God taught us is that we are not in control of our lives, thank goodness! No matter what we have planned for our future and our family, His plans may be different. The gift of children is so precious and a thing not to be taken for granted. When I look at Addie, I am reminded daily of the miracle of life, and that they only reason that she is in our life is because God chose to bless us with her. Losing a baby makes you look at pregnancy in a whole new light. Yes, of course there is fear involved, but that fear just teaches me to hold on tighter to my Jesus, and trust him with everything that I have in me. The only reason that there is life inside of me right now, is because He has put him there. We are so thankful for this baby. So far, everything is looking great. He is right on track with he has decided on Jett Daniel. Its different, but I really like it, GOOD JOB ADAM! Hello, my name is Taber, how much more different can you get???
I also had the blessing of becoming a full-time stay at home mom two weeks ago. I have had a wonderful job working two days a week, but I have been blessed with the opportunity to come home, and I am SO THANKFUL! We are having SO MUCH FUN! I am so thankful to my husband for working so hard to make that possible. He knew that was my heart's desire, and he wanted to see to it that it happened. I love you Adam! And, we are trusting God as our provider, He has never failed me yet!
So, here are some recent pictures of our little honey! She is getting SO big, and seems even bigger now that I know she is going to be a big sister soon! She is moving to her big girl bed tonight, I am in a state of denial. Could she really be ready for that??? We'll see, I'll let you know. It could be a long night in the Crawford house!
This is Addie with her best little buddy, Lizzie! These two are attached at the hip! Lizzie's daddy is a pastor at our church with Adam, and her mommy is one of my closest friends! So, it works out nicely that they have just moved into the house directly behind us, WHAT A BLESSING AND SO MUCH FUN!!!
