5 months

Today marks 5 months since I delivered Virginia in to the world. We should be talking about first teeth, watching her sit up for the first time and many other milestones but unfortunately we are not. I did finish her scrapbook and it looks really good--we are so glad that we have a keepsake of all of our memories of her.

It's been hard too as my favorite Uncle Mart passed away last week. He was always the life of the party and someone I wanted to be around. He fought lung cancer for 12 years and unfortunately it finally beat him. My favorite memory of Uncle Mart is that he would always dance with us at weddings when we were little--my mom called me within 15 minutes of his passing and I knew that Virginia had saved her first dance for Uncle Mart and at that moment they were dancing away. This image of them dancing brings me such comfort.

This picture is what he always looked like--a smile from ear to ear!
I love you so much Uncle Mart!


  1. What a beautiful picture of you and your Uncle.
    I have an award for you on my blog.

  2. I'm new to your blog and I wanted to extend my condolences and say that I am sorry for your losses. I admire your faith and wanting to glorify God through the pain of losing Virgina Rae. The photos you have of your family with her are precious.

    And this is also a beautiful picture of you and your uncle. I imagine he is dancing with Virginia in heaven now.


  3. Thanks so much for reading the blog! We really appreciate it! It has definitely been a long road for us these last six months. It's hard too as we think about the holidays (we found out that we were pregnant on Dec. 23).

    It definitely is such a comfort to me thinking about Virginia having her "first dance" with Uncle Mart.
