Moments that take your breath away...

There are moments in my life where I stop and take a mental picture if I really want to remember something and I kid you not it works! to this day I still remember being 8ish driving on the dirt road from Young with my family and Micheal McLean song " she see's a diamond" song was playing and I was looking out the window and thought I wish this moment could last forever! *snap* that was the sound of the mental picture :) As I have gotten older its worked the same our drive back from Rocky Point Triathlon just Me and My Mama and Daddio and a storm was coming in the distance and the skies were beautiful! We just had one of the best weekends ever!*snap*  Lots of Mental pictures have been taken and I cherish all of them! My favorite Mental Picture would be my wedding day I felt like I was in a dream like this really wasn't happening cause it was just to perfect and everything was beautiful and I had the most amazing man by my side. It was one of those days that you dreamed about and saw other people enjoy and was excited but never really thought you'd be old enough to have that moment.  I'm not sure if it's because of the waiting for your day to happen makes that day sweeter but I think its a combo...A combination of the waiting for something great and having the right person / people there to celebrate with you.

The Last 11 weeks have been mental picture after mental picture after am I in a faiy tale? You have you life planned out when your, marriage, babies..ect...but sometimes there is a lot of space between those events that you never thought you'd have. like It is 1512 days
( 4 years, 1 month, 22 days ) of space between us TTC to today. To some that may not be a lot and for some their space might be longer or shorter but this is Our space and those 1512 days have seen some pretty dramatic, emotional, heart breaking, wonderful, magical, sweet, bitter, beautiful days. I think its because of those flippin hard days and heartbreaking events that happened that make this day that much more sweet and wonderful. I wouldn't trade any of those days for the world because  I know that I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for all of those 1512 days.

I got to see my sweet baby wave to me on the screen yesterday and it was so precious to see such little fingers already and I just wanted to have that moment last forever so mental picture was taken and I can't help but think that little one was saying " Hi Mom...I'm finally coming! sorry it took so long"  Its an amazing feeling when you have the perfect day not because everything went right on that day but because of where I am and who I am with that is what makes the perfect day. I actually felt like wow this is really happening I'm having a baby....I still can't wrap my mind around that but its becoming easier the more times I see the Baby.  So thank you 1512 days for everything you blessed me with. You have made this day that much sweeter.

One By One

I know another video but what can I say Music is very dear to me! I love looking up music and video's on youtube and I found this one by Hilary Weeks One by One and it made me think of all the times I've felt forgotten or insignificant and wondered If Heavenly Father really knew who I was and I realize more and more how much he knows me and everyone of us and how much he loves me. I have had a couple of sweet friends lose their little babies within the last 2 weeks and my heart breaks for them. These ladies are wonderful women and will be wonderful Mothers and it stinks they have to wait longer before they can hold their little one. It's hard not to think about my baby angels when I hear news like this and I know things happen for a reason I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for the Faith that I have that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ  truely knows and loves us one by one. In whatever we are facing in life He knows our hearts and he Heals us One by One because we matter to him! We are special to him. I love reminder songs like these. Because lets face it its easy to forget when your facing your battles and trials but then a song like this plays and reminds me of our Savior's Love.

Beautiful Heartbreak

If you have yet to see this video by Hilary Weeks Beautiful Heartbreak here is your chance.

seriously so beautiful! I love this song and the video captures it perfectly!  Read the lyrics . I love Hilary Weeks her music has always spoken to my soul and this song is no different!  One of my favorite parts is

"I used to pray he'd take it all away,
 But instead it became a beautiful heartbreak.

I never dreamed my heart would make it,
I thought about turning around;
But heaven has shown me miracles,
I never would have seen from the ground. "

I am so grateful to be where I am today and for all the miracles Heaven has shown me especially this little huge miracle thats living inside of me. 13 weeks and couldn't be more happier.

(don't mind the dirty bathroom and mirror)

12 Weeks and counting

I am very excited to say I'm 12 weeks! I have a dr. appointment Thursday afternoon and I am very excited to see baby again! I'm crossing my fingers that I am able to be taken off my exercise restrictions! I have missed working out soo bad! My Sister Allison sent me these cute stickers for taking pictures that say how many weeks I am I missed the 8 week one because I was a little side tracked by my emotions and My sweet Aunt Judy's passing but I wanted to make sure I got the next one which was 12 weeks! the next one is 16weeks in which I am soo hoping that we know the sex of baby McGee by then!! but anyways  so far the pregnancy has been wonderful! I have had tons of pregnancy sickness which is such a good sign and has been wonderful to know I'm feeling this gross because I have a freakin human being growing inside of me!! Thats just amazing to me! The last couple of day's I've had some serious lower back issues so i'm gonna make an appointment with the Clinic at Parker to hopefully get some relief! I am so excited to hear of all the Baby announcements on FB and am praying everyday for those who are still waiting for their miracle! I tell baby all the time to tell his or her friends to come down too! Their Amazing parents are anxiously waiting!!!
Its not the greatest picture and the lighting is awful but oh well! plus I know I look bigger than 12 weeks thats what happens when you can't exercise and no its not twins! but I still wanted to take the picture.  Thanks Alli for the stickers!!
