1 year- Since One of the Happiest Days of My Life

It has been 1 year to the day that I found out I was pregnant with Grant. I suspected before that day but on the morning of November 21, 2011 I had a positive pregnancy test. I went to the doctor and they confirmed that yep, I was indeed pregnant. Jonathan and I were so so so excited. So excited we had a really hard time keeping it to ourselves. It had been 3 long years of waiting for that positive test. I am so thankful for that day. It was literally one of the happiest days of my life.

I never imagined that as I approached the 1 year date of finding out we were expecting I would be grieving the child that I only had for a little while. I am so very glad that I got to carry him for that short time though. I'm glad that I got to hold him, bathe him, dress him, sing to him and take pictures of his sweet face. If I could go back to 1 year ago I wouldn't change a single thing. He is one of my greatest blessings.


  1. Isn't it just the funniest that the days that are the brightest to us are the ones where we have peed on things?? :)I've saved all of my pregnancy test (except for Graham, I was young and unthinking then...)because each one represents the start of hope and joy and love and a million other wonderful things. Despite the grief that comes along with Grant's early arrival treasure each of those special memories!

    Love you! Happy early Thanksgiving!


  2. I passed my date recently also. I so agree I would not of exchanged a thing he was worth it. Praying for you during this time my friend. Hope you had a blessed thanksgiving!
