Yay! New-to-Me Photos

My lovely friend Ashley sent me photos from when I was pregnant. I hadn't seen them ever so it was quite a treat. I didn't have many full body pregnancy photos... something that I regret. :( So these photos are very wonderful to me. :) I do have special ones taken at 38 weeks by my hubby which I will share on Wednesday. Let's hope I remember to, which I'm sure I will.
Anyhow, this first photo was taken on the 4th of July, my friend's birthday, I was 19 weeks and 4 days pregnant (I looked it up... thank you internet!) Don't mind the silly face... I don't know what I was thinking. Just being goofy I guess.

And this next photo was taken at one of my baby showers with my friends from high school which was near the middle of October. Anna was due at the end of November... so around 36 weeks-ish.

I ♥ Deals

I love deals! *sigh* We went to Target today. Monday is the day for baby clothing deals! Let me tell you! That's the day they bring out the good stuff! I found two beautiful skirts for Anna! One is white and pink striped with little pockets and it has two layers. The other is a blue/green/yellow delicate plaid with pockets. They are darling! I got them for 1.98 per skirt! Originally they were 7.99 per skirt. I grabbed up the 2T since that isn't too different from 24 months. Anna wears 18 months right now and she is wearing it now as she naps. It looks a little long but it is so adorable! Like I said, I ♥ Deals!

Audrey Caroline

I was looking at other sites and I read a Then Sings My Soul post about a family, the Smiths, who lost their little girl, Audrey Caroline. Their story will make you cry. It is so beautiful to read about their faith. Their blog is called Bring the Rain. Their story from beginning to end is posted on this blog. The family wrote a beautiful song about their daughter and created a YouTube video. It is so beautiful. Please visit their blog and listen to this beautiful song. I just cried and cried the entire time I watched this. The thing that impacted me most was how joyful they were to see their daughter. They have big smiles as they welcome her into the world although they know she won't be there for long. They celebrated her life although it wasn't very long at all. They have such huge faith. It is just unimaginable. I hope that if something like that happens to me or our family that I can have faith like that.
