When You Make Plans….God Laughs

Posted: March 22, 2015 in Family

Here’s our pre-baby bucket list I posted in July 11. We accomplished 8/24 goals in 3.5 years. I’d like to say #fail, but the 8 we mastered, were a great 8 and we’ve still got 6 months to knock some things off the list. Why 6 months? Because Baby Boy Quarles arrives September 2015! This news is not a secret, but we haven’t announced on social media, so please keep any comments to text, email or comments on the blog for now. We’ll be making a formal announcement in the next few weeks after my next appointment, but as blog followers, you’re privy to top secret news.

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 1.53.29 PMOur baby story – 2014 was a trying year for us, literally. We suffered 3 early losses in February, May & September. Our faith wavered and our hope dwindled but here we are. Christmas Day 2014, I reluctantly took a test and not to my surprise, it was positive. What’s surprising is that 16 weeks later, Baby Q is still hanging around.

Momentary detour – be careful when you ask people what they’re waiting for be it marriage, baby, career. You never know what a person may be going through or just how painful that wait can be.

So there you have it – our 2 biggest updates of 2014. As promised, I will update more often.

I only wish we lived closer, but that makes me even more grateful for your blog and social media so I can get my Quarles family fix. Xoxoxo
