More Kindness

Today we got ANOTHER surprise in the mail-----this was from my dear friend Candi :) Thank you so much for this beautiful necklace!!!! When I first opened it, it brought a tear to my eye, this is the first gift Jillian has that actually has her name on it! I LOVE it! I had actually seen these necklaces online and thought they were soooo what a great surprise! I am also thinking since it does have her name, it might look great use during our maternity photos? I know I say it all the time----but seriously we are so lucky to have some great people around us!!!!
(EDIT: Necklace was made at the Vintage Pearl , a really cute, trendy Etsy boutique!)

Today I also picked up Jillian's christening gown from Grandma Teresa. This gown is what I plan on Jillian wearing right after she is born. It is absolutely beautiful!!!! She picked a perfect one!!!! Thank you soooo much!!!!! (I am waiting to post outfits later, when I have everything, or maybe I won't post the outfits, haven't decided yet?)

(I also hope people don't think anything bad of me posting the gifts Jillian receives, I just like to share with everyone all the cute things, and for those that live far away (like my mom!) you get to see what we have!) And know we are more than grateful for everything!!!!!!!!

What a beautiful necklace!!! I want one!!! :0) Do you know where she got it from??

Don't feel bad about posting her gifts.... They make you happy, they are sentimental, it is part of Jillian's journey and it also shows how much love, caring and kindess is out there for you and your family......It's a BEAUTIFUL thing!!!

I am thinking of you and praying for you, Jillian Grace and your family!

God bless!

First of all, I absolutely adore the necklace! I want to get something similar for Noah but my husband doesn't (thinks its not right for a boy) Oh well!

Secondly, I have recently been contacted by a mother who lost a baby to anencephaly that created a website called Her name is Monika. She is interested in posting a link to your blog on her website along with others (mine is on there as well as many of the ones I follow).

If you would be interested in having her do this then please, please email her at: She would love to hear from you regardless.
