James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Home Days 1 & 2

Home Days 1 & 2: it's been busy around here and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. I've got a system for Wyatt's milk and meds all figured out but that still requires a lot but worth it & does save me time. James and I figured out a way to make Wyatt mobile when we need to leave the house for doctors appointments with my backpack. It holds his milk pump, oxygen tank, monitor and power cords just in case! James is the master packer! Wyatt has done well, he slept through both nights (12 & 9 hours). He has thrown up both nights between 3 & 7 multiple times w/ his reflux but that's really the only time of day. The doctors are okay w/ that. He weighed in today at his pediatrician's at 10lbs! She was really on top of everything. It felt like she went through Wyatt's chart from parkland with a fine tooth comb. He got his 4 month shots like a champ! Cried for about 30 seconds then passed out. He took a 3 hour nap Tomorrow we are going to see Dr. Lo, who delivered him for my yearly. It's so good to be home as a family. James and I just feel so blessed that Wyatt is our son!!


  1. so happy your little guy is home finally! You must feel everything is finally complete!
