...tomorrow is the day we'd expected to meet our little boy.  The Lord had a different plan than we did, and after just 19 weeks of carrying this little life within me, he was taken to a Perfect Life for eternity.

How do you spend the day you thought you'd be meeting your child?  Tim and I decided that it would be  a day together...himself, Charlie and me.  We're going to hunt for our Christmas tree, decorate it while sipping hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music and enjoy our family, even though our little boy isn't joining us.

It will be bitter sweet, enjoying family time, while missing Isaiah on his expected birthday. 

We are so thankful for the little ball of energy we call Charlie,  who will keep us laughing, and, probably on our toes, as she seeks to destroy the baby proof ornaments I stocked up on.

We miss our little boy every day, and are thankful for God's grace and the knowledge that we will meet one day.

Psalm 139:13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
We look forward to meeting you, sweet Isaiah.

 The start of every morning...after changing a diaper of course

These people are on top of things...

Despite this little girl being in the best mood I've ever seen her in, this is the face she made when I pulled out the camera

Tea party

 Going for the camera

 Pacifier positioning of choice

Reading together

Smiling sweetly


Elmo and Ricky Gervais for Charlie while I made dinner
