baby stuff

Rod and I are praying about having another baby. If you are new to our story our first child died premature and our second pregnancy with sweet Morgan Hope was really REALLY hard. I would like to meet someone who has more battle stories than I do...LOL. Also, for those of you who have had perfect pregnancies I had enough birth pangs for all of us!! And for those of you who have been trying to conceive I pray that you will and I can't imagine how hard it has been for you. I will say I have watched SEVERAL couples STRUGGLE to get pregnant and miraculously in God's time I have seen all of them that I have prayed for have children. I couldn't be more happy for them.

Anyway, if the Lord gives us a child his/her name will be Blair. The Lord has given me confirmation through His word to start trying, so we will see.

Anyway, I have to tell you something so funny. Morgan has started bringing up having a child and she is dead set on a boy. We were in the car and she said momma I want a baby brother.

me: you do?

her: yes, can I get one from Walmart?

me: honey you have to ask God for a baby, and then the baby would be in mommy's tummy for a while.

her: NO! I want a baby in my tummy!!

me: What if God gives us a girl?

her: NO!

her: God, please give me a baby boy...amen.

Now this child has even had more fervor in prayer... She has prayed 3 times today for a baby boy. She just said in the kitchen: Jesus, I want a baby boy...amen...goodbye.

Here is a note from her:



Now, I am going to show you a picture of the cutest diaper bag I found. I will get his/her name monogrammed on it.

Here is Morgan's bag that a friend made for her.

Here is where Morgan put a scarf on my head and we had to take a pic!

I painted these letters for her room before she was born and I just put them up last month. I hot glued ribbon to the letters and bought cute buttons and just hammered through the buttons.

Morgan is not to happy about this other bag not being hers so we had to get her pic with both!! LOL If I don't have another child I will just give it to someone else. Also, guess how much I paid for it.

That is so sweet that you might be planning a new addition to your family! And you already have a name! Both my pregnancies were full of nausea. The first for 8 1/2 months and the second for 7 months. But the babies are worth all the suffering! God's blessings on you all!

oh girl!! I'm praying!

And just so you know, when I was almost four, I began to pray for a baby brother. Every night I prayed for a baby boy. God gave my parents... a baby boy.

Love you,

It is exciting to finally get to the point of trying for another baby :)
I love that Morgan is lifting up her prayers to Jesus - you know He is loving that :)

I am so excited for you!! It has been nine years since I had a baby and though I thought I was DONE, Mark and I are praying for: Roman Marcus. Since you have the favor of God on this particular prayer, please add us! ;)

Blair is a nice name and I love that you already have one picked out. May God give your wish and by all means, have fun trying. hee hee. sorry. ahem.

Jenny: this was one of the most random and, yet, interconnected blog posts I've read in a LONG time. wow...
Praying for you today - that your heart will be open and ready for whatever God has with a second little one.

Darlene R. said...

I will be praying for you! How fun for you guys to want another little one!

Morgan is such a sweetheart!

Miss you!!

jenny this is awesome news. i will pray to the giver of life to allow you to give life again and that in His mercy you will have a much easier pregnancy.

the bag is so classy...i'm guessing you got it for a unbelievably low price but to me it looks like 100.00.

Faith said...

That is too precious! Too bad you all don't live nearby; she could stop by my house in a few months to get her baby-boy fix. ;) I will pray with you along those lines!

And I am encouraged to hear that every trying-to-conceive couple you have prayed for has ended up with a baby. Were you praying double for me? ;)

She is adorable. God bless you as you think through having another child. I did a video post today about stopping my husband's vasectomy. Family planning is complex!

I've got a story for you. My son weighed in at 10 lbs 12 ounces. I was only in labor 26 hours. Then, my daughter, well, they induced me early to keep her size down. It didn't work. I had her 100% natural at 10 lbs 11/1/2 ounces. Okay, so they saved me 1/2 an ounce. Yes, today, I can sit. Praise God. Blessings to your family.
