In the Pink

Yesterday, someone mentioned to me that instead of always looking of the black and white, I should try to enjoy the "gray area" of my pregnancy...meaning I should try to keep it in the present instead of worrying about the past or trying to jump forward to the future.  I agree, but as I've mentioned before, the gray area of anything doesn't sound like somewhere I want to be.  So, in honor of Gracie, I will try to enjoy the "pink" of this pregnancy.

Before I got pregnant with Gracie, my doctor warned me that I would be a nervous wreck until I was home with my baby (and probably well after!) because we lost Rip after his birth...meaning there wouldn't really be a month or week that I could pass and believe everything was going to be okay.

This weekend, I will be 24 weeks.  This is a BIG means that, although nobody would ever want this to happen, if I were to go into labor today there is a decent chance that my baby would survive.  My first instinct is to think of all of the things that could still go wrong...but the reality is, I am 24 weeks pregnant and everything is looking great.  I feel good, Gracie is (well, I am) growing daily, the weather is beautiful, and we have a fun weekend planned.  Things are pretty darn good "in the pink" I've just got to do my best to stay here.


  1. In the pink might just be the best outlook for life!!! I'm so happy to hear that you and Gracie are both having a great day! LOVE Y'ALL BOTH SO MUCH!!!!!

  2. What a perfect way to put it! Still praying for each of y'all, and especially for little Gracie. Twenty four weeks is no small feat - I'm excited for you! Hope the rest just flies by. We're seven weeks behind you and I'm ready to feel the kick-kick-kicks myself. :)

  3. Yay!! Love those kick kick kicks :)
