Gigi's Journal - March 29, 2012

It's been a very full couple of weeks!  The Girls and their parents came for a visit and #1 Grandson has been visiting this week!

The Girls turned 8 months old yesterday.  Hard to believe how far we've come in the last year or so.  Just one year ago we were starting to get a picture of the trouble ahead for little Emerson.  She may be gone but certainly is not forgotten.  The hole that Emerson's loss has left in her parent's hearts, however, isn't completely healed yet.  Certainly, as time goes by, remembering her will be less and less painful.  Until then - prayers, peace and patience as they continue their journey.

Now for some pictures!

Gigi's Journal - March 7, 2012

Today was a good day.  I had the privilege of catching a very special couple's first baby.  Stephanie and Josh have been close family friends for years.  Josh and our son Chris are best friends and have known each other since they were teenagers.  Stephanie holds a very special place in my life.  I believe that God has knit her in our family's heart.  He brought her into our lives during a time when she was dealing with the loss of her mother and more recently that of her father.  I love seeing how the Lord directs our paths and places us in the "right place at the right time".  She means the world to our family and well, her husband is ok too :-)

Stephanie went into labor on March 5 at 1:00 AM and pushed out her baby on March 7, 2012 at 12:28 AM at the Fruitful Vine Birth Center.  I was blessed to be her midwife.  He weighed 8 pounds 2 ounces and is adorable.  When Josh called Chris at 1:00 this morning to let him know Fisher was here, he said, "your future son-in-law is here".    Here are some pics of this newest blessing!  I am a very happy Gigi tonight.
