I am skipping week 29 because it was a horrible week and I was definitely not into taking pictures. Thank you so much for the kind words and well wishes for my sister. She is still not doing so great, but we know that the prayers of the righteous availeth much. Thank you all so very much.
There seems to be joy and sorrow at the same time in our family. We are excited at the thought of Spencer's birth while mourning the loss of my niece/nephew. Praying that Spencer will be able to bring a little healing to our family and the losses we have experienced over the past few years.

I received a rather large package in the mail last week. Let me say Spencer is so loved by many. Kiki, an IC friend sent me a beautiful box filled with goodies for myself and Spencer. My husband stood in awe as we went through the box. Some items included a breast pump, moby wrap, nursing wrap, bottles, and so much more. Like after seeing the blanket I got from Tonya, we both broke down in tears. I have made so many awesome and endearing friends and although it saddens me to think we met under tragic circumstances, I am grateful for the friendships that have untied us through grief. My husband sat shaking his head asking "what did we do to deserve such generosity?" and all I can say is "losing our babies". Hopefully one day we can pay it forward. Thanks Kiki! We are forever grateful.
Awaiting my expected end,
