35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…
