more prayers and more 4 month pictures...

**Please do not forget to head over to Cody's Journey, kept up to date by his sister, Jennifer.**
They need all of the prayers and encouragement they can get today!

It has been a long and hard couple of days. I think once I had Hadlea, my perspective on life changed...drastically. I have always been a very caring person and always wanted the best for people. I have always felt like I have tiptoed around others to ensure I do not hurt their feelings. I still do. And always will. I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing, but it is who I am. I cannot stand to see others hurting. Especially when it comes to a child or family member. My heart hurts for Jennifer and her family. I really cannot even express it, and I know so many feel the same way. We feel helpless. If we could snap our fingers and make it all go away, we would. In a heart beat. No questions asked. The prays that are pouring in for Cody, his family and his unborn baby are BEYOND AMAZING. I know they are coming from people they do not even know. I think as a parent you put yourself in Cody's mom's shoes. I know I have. I did as soon as I got the call from Jennifer as they were driving to Oklahoma City. They had no idea what shape Cody was in. Whether he was dead or alive. I also thought about it being one of my brothers. Or Justin, he is an electrician as well. It is the most terrifying thought in.the.entire.world. And I am only thinking it, not living it like their family is. Jennifer, from the bottom of my heart, I Love You. I love your family. You are the strongest person I know. You are your family's rock. Cody will pull through. He will see his son be born. He will watch his son, Ady and Reese play for years to come. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind!

And for any parent, when you are having a REALLY bad day and hurting for others, there is only one thing that can make it better. And for me, here she is...
I wasn't so happy with Hadlea's 4 month pictures I took the other day, so Saturday, while Justin was fishing, we tried again! She was in a great mood and was laughing most of the time! I think you can definitely tell that with most of these pictures!
Here she is laughing at her brother! You can see his shadow in this picture! :)

Last night, we didn't do much. Justin mowed the yard, I made supper and baked a cake. While we were waiting on Justin to come in, I decided to take a few pictures of Hadlea. I had her in a summer outfit today since it was 80+ degrees. She just cracks me up!
I kept Hadlea at home yesterday while I worked. I laid her on her playmat while I created a report. When I came back in a couple of minutes to get her, she was nowhere to be found! Can you see her?
Seriously...when I left the room she was on her back on the mat! I think my heart stopped for a second when I didn't see her on the mat and again when I seen her under the table! Ha!

Heather, It's friends and family like you who are getting me through this. This is the hardest thing in my life that I've ever had to deal with. The three of us (Jessi, Cody, and I) are extremely close and right now that makes it hurt so much more. My heart hurts for him. I want nothing more than to take his pain away for him. I know it's all in God's time but I just want to see his sweet baby blue eyes. Please keep praying. The prayers that have been said have been a part of a miracle. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are a blessing to us.
