…and after having numerous miscarriages and fertility struggles in May months in previous years (esp 2010 and 2014, but there were a couple other Mays right up there too…), this is marvelous for May 2015~

    Wait wait….you’re fitting into your wedding dress at (almost) 15 weeks pregnant, 8 years later?? Good grief!! 😉 Happy 8 years and happy (almost) 15 weeks! You guys also make the cutest little superhero family ever. 😉

    I’m glad THIS May is so happy for you.

    And I realized I never came over and said congratulations! So…congratulations! :)

    Betsy, I know, right? LOL. Hubby says it proves I lost too much weight in recent months, because yeah… that was yesterday on our 8th anniversary. Haha! I think it might be time to preserve & package up the dress though, and wait for my daughter to be the next princess to play dress-up in it when she is grown.

    Mel, we praise God for His mercy. I can’t stop praising Him and thanking Him, especially for this current particular respite which is straight from His gracious hand.

    Aww Tammy, thanks. So undeserved here. Clear and obvious grace.

    Aww, what cute photos! I love the superhero family one. And you can still fit into your beautiful princessy wedding dress!! :)
    I am rejoicing that Sweet Teen is blessing you this May after all the Mays that held grief and sorrow.

    Happy Anniversary to you two! Sweet photos! Rejoicing with you on the health of your wee one! We must be due around the same time!

    Love all of it! Your kiddos are getting so big…. Makes a new little so much more fun! :)

  15. joyfuldomesticityon 08 Jun 2015 at 1:24 pm

    Yes, Jaclynn, we are due the same weekend. But if I make it to the first week of November, that will be really good: I always go early, so we’ll just see when “it” makes the grand entrance.

    So much goodness and beauty. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praying for your amazing little miracle.
