The Domestic Four

Yesterday I did a quick glance over the list of things I need to acquire for our son. I then looked at the calendar and realized that I am, in fact, approaching my due date with rapid speed.

We are expecting a baby girl February 17th 2014, my fathers birthday! We will be naming her Caroline Victoria, & she will be perfect! A little about our experience with pregnancy.. We lost our first baby April 2013 i was only about 8 weeks pregnant but it was still hard to know that i let something die inside of me, when deep down i knew it was not my fault! But God brought us threw that tough time! June 4th 2013 my aunt called me and said go take a pregnancy test, i replied i have not missed a period i do not think i am pregnant why should i go get a test? She says just do it now and call me back as soon as you take it. Okay so i did and there we have it that’s the day i found out that God blessed us yet again, & this time i just knew everything would work out PERFECT so here i am 7 weeks away from having a sweet baby girl!
