1 year ago today…


Working in the NICU has its perks. 1 year ago today David and I met a friend of mine, a sonogram tech, early in the morning for a sneak peak at our baby’s nether regions. Our official gender sonogram was scheduled for two weeks later, but my friend said that she would love to do one early! It was such a neat day. Elliott was moving…a lot! But, he was still so small that I couldn’t feel him yet. I can remember looking at the screen when he moved and trying desperately to feel anything. It’s amazing to look at this picture and see that cute little button nose that I know so well now. Elliott tossed, turned, scratched his belly, and kept his hands strategically placed over the one area we were dying to see! Eventually my friend managed to see enough to tell us that she was 99% sure that our baby was a BOY! We were so excited! David and I had a feeling from the very beginning that we were going to have a boy…it’s weird how that works out…but it was still super exciting to hear someone officially say it. My, what a difference a year makes! Elliott has brought so much joy to our lives. He is a precious gift from God and we love him so much.

Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15



  1. I remember this day too and waiting to hear what Tricia said about the sonogram and how excited she was about seeing the baby move so much and that he was most likely a boy. Then 2 weeks later when I had the privilege of going with them for the official sonogram, wow, it was just amazing to see this little person, his face, his feet, his uh, other parts!
    I feel so blessed for the continuation of life and family that God has given to us. Even though this world is not our final domain and has many sorrows and problems, God has given us small miracles to see every day, if we will only look for them, like the feel of a little hand exploring your face or the sight of those first tentative smiles. Being a mom and Grandma has brought more joy than I can express, and I am so grateful to God for this privilege.
