3rd time's a charm???

So last week, we got an email from our agency about another situation with a birthmom that they needed our permission to show our profile (b/c of special circumstances). This is the 3rd time (that we know of) that our profile is being shown. Maybe this will be lucky number 3?? Who knows, but please be in prayer for this sweet mom who is making the most gut wrenching and difficult decision of her life, my heart breaks for her. They will be showing her profiles on Thursday. I have no idea how many profiles will be shown, but I don't think it will be any more than 18, hopefully less, and her baby boy is due in June. We don't know what the future holds, but we know that He has plans for us, plans to prosper us and not harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. We rely so faithfully on this truth and are so grateful for such a loving Father.

In other news, I ended up getting 2 little stitches in my finger, which hurt like an SOB - but the day after and since it hasn't hurt at all, so I guess that's good.

Although it kinda puts a damper on my weight lifting program that I just started last week. I will try to work around around it and not fall off track... again.

Oh, so exciting!!! I got to go with Delissa to try on wedding gowns on Saturday - so fun! I had only booked sessions with 2 places; David's Bridal and Belle Saison (a local place that had great reviews), praying that she would a) feel like a beautiful princess and b) find THE dress! David's was first and she tried on several gowns and found one that she really liked, funny enough, nothing like what she thought she would like. Doesn't it always work out that way?! Luckily, they would be able to order the dress and address any alterations if needed (what I was hoping would happen since David's is your big box bridal store and homegirl is getting married in, oh you know 2 months!) We went and had lunch and then headed over to Belle Saison (a little late) and all the girls were given special ribbon tags to put on all the dresses they wanted her to try on. They ran out of tags, but my mom spotted just ONE MORE to add to the pile, so the consulted threw it in there. She tried on dress after dress and they were all kind of meh. Especially after seeing her in the other gown at David's that we thought might be the ONE. Finally, she comes around the corner, and I was the first to see her and my jaw hit the ground and tears started welling in my eyes, holy smokes, I just KNEW this had to be the one! She stepped onto the platform and everyone gasped and Delissa started to cry. Y'all she did not cry when she had on any other dress. She looked stunning! The dress was just perfect and oh so flattering! I just knew it was going to be like $2000 or something way out of budget and I was nervous. I told my mom about my fear and she leaned in and said, "that's the one I picked after we were out of tags! It's only $900!". Holy sweet Jesus, are serious?! Most dresses in this place were all over $1500 - so this was a flippin' miracle! Now my second fear.. would they be able to order her a dress in time?! No :( Buuuuuut.... they had 2 sample dresses in the store, one of which WAS IN HER SIZE, that they would sell her at 10% off! WHAT?! This is amazing! AND they also just happen to be running a tax free promotion - SERIOUSLY?! Thank you God, I know without a doubt that this was ALL you! Thank you so, so much for allowing Delissa to have the dress of her dreams! #healwaysprovides Wish I could show you all a pic, but you'll just have to wait until June 20th!

She said yes to the dress!!!

Pumping is going...ok, I guess. I don't know what the norm is for how much I should be producing at this point with only a pump, but twice this past week I made half and ounce in a day - which is double what I was making, so I'm pretty pumped about that! Hopefully my supply will double again next week?? We shall see. I might have gotten half an ounce yesterday too, but I ran off and left my pump at home and spend the whole day in Wimbo at my parents house for Easter :( So, I gave hand expression a whirl, and it actually went better than expected, but my boobs were pretty sore today. One cool thing that happened though, while hand expressing in the car on the way home, I had "sprays" for the first time (that I am aware of) - which was pretty exciting.
only ALL the time! Haha! #boobtoot

Speaking of Easter, here are some pics from Easter week/Sunday, and a few pics from our Bluebonnet mini session with the ever so talented Ms. Becky!

STOP growing already!

Aren't they amazing?! Just love her! If you are looking for an amazing photographer, you MUST check her out:Rebecca Dyan Photography.

I guess I will let you guys know how things shake out next week with the newest baby situation - prayers are always appreciated! Have a good one!
