about 2 years ago…

Jon and I were shopping around in the Plaza District and we ended up in a store that carries some handmade items.  At the time we were trying really hard to have a baby with no luck at all, and were on the cusp of our infertility journey.  As we were shopping I spotted the sweetest little crocheted purple and white hat, and the second I laid eyes on it I knew I had to have it.  Feeling a bit silly, I splurged on this sweet little gift for the future baby we didn’t even know if we would have.  I went home that day (we were living with my parents at the time) and tucked the brown paper bag away, knowing that if I looked at it everyday it would just make me sad.  A matter of months later we finally moved into our new house, and I found a special place on my closet shelf.  Oftentimes I would glimpse the edge of the bag as I was hanging up clothes or debating over what to wear to work, and I’d feel a tinge of sadness, but also a surge of hope.

After many months of waiting and uncertainty, a long pregnancy complete with bedrest at home, time in the hospital, 17 days in the NICU and a glorious 4 months with my sweet baby girl, I finally got to fish the little hat out of my closet and plop it on her perfect little head.

My heart is full.

    That is so sweet Candice. I’m so happy you got your perfect little baby to put the hat on. I have yet to splurge on any baby clothes, just because like you said, it would make me too sad, but I have started
    a pretty good size book collection for them someday. I know God will bless us eventually with some little ones, just may not be in my timing ;-) they are both adorable, so happy for you!

    Thanks so much for this comment, Krisha. You know my heart feels for you as you wait for God’s timing because I know it can be one of the hardest things to do. It will be so special when you get to read those books to your baby someday – what a neat idea.
