my favorite gift this year.

July 12, 2012

Sometimes I look at Jia and can't believe God gave me a baby girl.
A beautiful, silly, full of life baby girl.
I'd have to say, she is the best thing I could have asked for this year.

When we got pregnant again and thought we might lose her as well,
we had to have several sonograms due to the large blood mass in my uterus
and not being able to hear her heartbeat sometimes at my checkups.
Anyway, at one {emergency-ish} sonogram, after spotting her pumping little heart right away
we watched her do SOMERSAULTS in my uterus, over and over again.
And Jeff and I looked at each other and laughed a little both thinking the same thing...
Baby boy #3 was on his way.
Nope. Just Jia. Trying to be like her brothers. :)
She karate chopped me just as much, if not more, than they did
throughout the duration of her pregnancy
and I remember thinking...what is this little girl gonna be like...
I also remember thinking, this little girl is strong.
She kinda had the odds against her but she fought for her life and won.
Jemma, my tiny, fragile sweet baby girl that didn't make it.
And Jia, my silly, sassy, CHUBBY baby girl that did.
And she wouldn't be here if Jemma was.
Crazy when you think about life that way.

So here she is,
our little photo shoot from Mother's Day...
I realize its 2 months later but I wanted to make sure to post them. :)
Enjoy her scrumptiousness.


You're welcome. ;)
