{Daddy date & update on G}

Today William decided that i needed a small break from G. We have been inseperable since the moment she was born! They decided to have a daddy daughter date & go look for birthday presents for me. 
I will be 21 tomorrow. Its so crazy to think.

As much as i agreed with William that i needed a small break, for some reason, it was really hard to see them go! I literally stood in the door way to our garage & cried hysterically while i watched him load her into the car! The whole time, william was laughing at me, feeling sorry for me. He kept saying "Honey. dont cry.." He will never understand :)

Although G is no longer in my belly, i still feel as though she is part of me.. so seeing her leave without me was really hard. I seriously cried for about 20 minutes after they left! & now im sitting here typing this, missing them.. wanting to cry again! ah! Hormones. 

You have to admit though, she looks super cute in her seat, how could you not miss that face? Daddy has a cute little date :) 
I swear this little peanut gets cuter & cuter everyday. 
& speaking of our little peanut, I kind of have an update on everything that has been going on. On friday night her Dr. called us back. He confirmed that her Xrays indeed showed signs of sagittal cranial stenosis. We have been in contact with Phoenix childrens hospital & will be meeting with a Neurosurgeon on Thursday to discuss the severity of the issue & our options. thats all we know until then.
Please continue to keep us all in your prayers as this is such a scary time. Our hearts break for our little girl. I am thankful though that we live so near such a wonderful hospital with some of the best Drs in the country. That brings a little bit of comfort, but still, it is scary to think of what our little one may have to go through. 
I know everything will be ok though. We have lots of family members & friends all over the place praying for the safety of our little girl. Everything happens for a reason too. Good will come from this experience :) 

Well, i'm going to finish up this post & take a little nap before my Husby & little peanut get home.

Happy Tuesday everyone :) 


  1. oh girl. we know all about neurosurgeons.
    i am SO glad for you all that you have family close by! the lord knew what he was doing when he kept you in phoenix for the time being. it really makes all the difference in the world!!!

    praying for you all. i was talking with my mil about you all, & she said that daniel's cousin actually had cranial stenosis & she is 16 now & beautiful & perfect! love from nc :)

  2. she is such a doll!! I'll keep y'all in my prayers :)

  3. I'll definitely be praying for that sweet girl. She is so beautiful!

  4. I cried when my hubby took my little one out too! He felt so bad that he started sneaking out of the house in the morning with the baby so I could sleep in.
    Happy (early) Birthday!!

  5. She's so adorable... We're praying for her, and for you guys.

  6. I'm happy you have so many loved ones to pray for you! We will pray for you as well. I hope everything goes well. And she is seriously precious! What a beautiful baby!

  7. That is so sweet of your husband, but I know for me it was so much easier for me to go out then for my husband to take her. It just made me feel better that they were at home with all of her stuff, and I could control when I came back to see her. You continue to me in my prayers.

  8. What a beautiful baby you have! Prayers for you as you decide on your options. You show so much strength--God will surely pull you through.

    "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 40:10

  9. Hello Ashley! I am a new follower, but know its for a reason! A friend I went to TCU with has been through the journey you are just now starting on now. She is amazing christian woman and I know she would love to talk to you if you ever have any questions or concerns. Let me know and I can get you in contact with her! Her son is a healthy, happy little boy now :) You guys are in my prayers!

  10. Hey...I just found you via Pinterest, searching for granola recipes. I'm so sorry to read about your little girl, BUT I will pray for God's healing and peace to you and your husband.

  11. Thank you everyone for your encouragement :) It truly means a lot
