Back to the grind

We returned today from a five day trip to Matt's parents house in central WA. We had a great time. It was so much fun to be with family but it's always a little stressful and tiring adjusting to new routines. The girls had a blast but were totally wiped tonight and fell right asleep pretty early. We're looking forward to getting back in to the week and back to our regularily scheduled lives. I'll post pics of our weekend soon.

Yesterday I got the unbelievably sad news that my friend Jen had delivered her sweet baby, Owen, at 22 1/2 weeks. He didn't live. I can't imagine the grief that she and her family are experiencing. She had had a very hard pregnancy with lots of complications but she always had wonderful updates on how Owen was doing despite the problems. We were all so hopeful that the rest of the pregnancy would be uneventful for her and she would have a healthy, happy full-term baby. My thoughts keep drifting back to my friend and it all just is so awful and unfair. If you're the praying/vibe-sending sort, I am sure they could use any you have to spare.

  3. I am indeed the vibe-sending type and I have been holding sweet Owen and sweet Jen in my thoughts...I am so glad we will all get to be together in a couple months.
