I enjoyed so much this past Sunday celebrating what a special daddy Noah is to both of my babies. It isn't expressed enough on this blog how well he takes care of us, even as he deals with the pain on this special day. Noah went to see Magdalena, but I just couldn't do it. So many times I know that I want to go out there as we drive by the cemetary, but I just can't. There is no way to exactly describe it, but Noah always keeps an eye on things when he goes to see her. He has such a special bond with both Magdalena and Walt. As he talks to them I just can't help but laugh a little because of his loving, silly way of talking.

This summer I have been determined to really work on Magdalena's scrapbook. Between life and pregnancy tiredness I have stayed away from it too long. As it is my first time to ever make the attempt to be creative, it took me awhile to really get going. Now, with Noah's encouragement I have continued in the work, and I am finishing up her 29 week celebration page yesterday. I leave all of my things out in hopes that I will have almost complete it by the beginning of the school year. I will post some pictures soon! But don't laugh at them! It is our home version of a baby book, especially made for such a special girl!

We received a good report from the doctor on Tuesday. Little Walt has a good heartbeat, and by his movements I can tell that he is going to be a hand full! I am 25 weeks now, and on my 28th week I will return for the normal pregnancy sugar test, which is never fun, and we will have another sonogram. At this time they will check his size again, and to recheck for any marks that may show us a possible chromosome defect. His strong movements give us so much peace, but it also reminds me that we will have to rely on God for a stronger peace. One that will last even in the last few weeks when babies move less.

  5. Looking forward to seeing the finished project. I know that it will be a touching and splendid tribute to your amazing Magdalena.

    Julie, it's really okay that you don't want to visit yet. It's sweet that Noah does but each one of us deals with grief in our own way. That is how God made us so please do not feel bad about it.

    Your two precious babies are blessed beyond measure to have you and Noah as Mommy and Daddy.

    Will continue to pray for upcoming tests and lots of soccer playing in there by Walt. Take good care Julie!


I love to hear from you!
