Thankful at 34 Weeks

Well, here we are at 34 weeks! When we were first admitted to Prentice, none of us (including the doctors) thought we’d make it this far. And even though we believe that every day counts (cliché, but we’re ok with that) these bigger milestones are truly a celebration. And a celebration calls for….cheesecake!!


Kade had to get out of the room for a while today to do some laundry and, unbeknownst to me, he snuck over to the Cheesecake Factory to surprise me with my very favorite desert ever. Because…34 weeks!

And, of course, our weekly “bump date” photo session happened tonight. We are both fascinated with the growth of my belly. We look back at our weekly pictures from earlier in the pregnancy when we thought I was “soooo huuuge!!” and we giggle a little. Now…I am SO. HUGE. And I love it. I have two tiny humans living in there! THAT is a miracle.


I’m going to keep it short and sweet tonight. I just wanted to share these photos and a few words, as I know many of you are now counting the weeks and celebrating with us. That means so, so much to us. We were hesitant in the beginning to share our story in this way…so open and public. But it has turned into a true blessing because of all of you…we have been overwhelmed by the love and support we’ve received. It means more to us than you will ever know!

With Grace,
