Okay so its been a week since I updated. I have been running crazy trying to get all the stuff together to close on the house in two weeks. Its pretty crazy that we are closing that soon and that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. 
Its been a pretty hard week. My friend Kacie's little boy had open heart surgery on the 10th. He is only 5 months old. We have been praying for him and praying that the Lord will work through this surgery to completely heal him. It was hard to see the pictures she put up of him intubated and in that big bed looking so tiny. They went back to the PICU after the surgery and they were right next door to the room Jace was in. It was so crazy all the memories that brought back. They are very blessed to have their little boy still, but they have a long road of healing ahead. They still need a lot of prayers!
It still seems really overwhelming that Thanksgiving is coming and that I have no control over how life just keeps moving. I have been listening to this song by Little Big Town, (they are a country group), called Lost. There is a part where he says, "While I'm still the world goes 'round so free, so cavalier." I feel like that a lot these days. I know that its just part of the whole process. I ache to hold him and smell his little smell.....
Well, sorry that my blog is so sad. its helping me to journal it though and work through the messy grief. I thought I'd end on a little lighter note. These are pictures of Court's new favorite thing to do. She comes in first thing in the morning and puts on my lipstick and eyeshadow. So far the only eye color she has found is blue.... Yikes. I'm not sure where she gets it considering that I don't wear makeup very much at all! Oh well! She's pretty cute huh?


P.S. I just remembered I was going to tell everyone that I've been feeling the baby move a BUNCH. Just thought I'd share that little bit of exciting news! Love you all!
