26 Weeks and Gluten Free Cupcakes

Wow…what a week. Isn’t life crazy that way? Such heartache transformed into a million smiles. On the heels of losing Tex, we packed up and drove back to Louisville for the weekend. Ashley flew in from Dallas and had an amazing baby shower planned for her big elder sis…

The day meant so much more to me than a regular ‘ol baby shower. It signified reaching a milestone we never achieved with the girls. A healthy pregnancy…no complications…reason to celebrate. Juxtaposed to where we were 4 years ago and everyone in that room had reason to smile.

I was blown away with the love and support from all my family and friends. Ashley knew we didn’t have a shower with the girls and she made sure we felt the love this go around. I was blown away by everyone that came together to make it happen. Pam, special mention to you for bringing the gluten free cupcakes. YUM. I’m not one to go after sweets but pregnant me has had the crave big time.

At the end of the day, I drove away with a car load of baby goods and an even fuller heart. It’s strange that something like a baby shower can mean SO much. But this shower meant just that. Love, hope, dreams fulfilled. Optimism about the future and the realization that these twins are coming. Alive and well. Both of them.
