Celebrating the life of Ian Andy Ellis

Here is the little boy that has made me be a better mom over the past 2 years. Ian Andy Ellis, my cousin what an honor it is to say that. Ian went to be with his Father, October 9th and is now dancing on the streets of gold! He is in no more pain and can do all the things a 2 yr old should be able to do. Thank you Mary, Wae and Ian for touching my life like I never thought it was possible. Thanking you to making me wake up each morning and realize that the small things DON'T matter. Thank you for teaching me to be grateful for Gavin, for every small thing he does. Even down to touching my hand... No words will or can describe how grateful I am for the lesson this family has taught me.

You are extremely happy about these things, even though you have to suffer different kinds of trouble for a little while now. The purpose of these troubles is to test your faith as fire tests how genuine gold is. Your faith is more ...precious than gold, and by passing the test, it gives praise, glory, and honor to God. This will happen when Jesus Christ appears again 1 peter 1:6-7

7 Month Check Up

Today was my 7 month check up for Chloe. All is well so far. She is growing and only measuring one week behind. The doctor says this is still in the normal range, but that she will just be small. (im o.k. with that.)
Her heartrate was 138-141 today and was just where it is suppose to be... Doctor said perfect, actually!! Praise God!
All my bloodwork, etc came back normal and I am doing great other than the normal pregnancy symptoms that occur as you get bigger!!
We will be getting her 4D ultrasound in 2 weeks when we go back and I cannot wait to see all the fingers/toes, etc... it will be awesome!!
I will post more at that time!
Thanks for checking in...

Pictures of Chloe Lynn Isbell

These are pics from when we found out Chloe was a girl. A little late, but better late than never, right? Here is our second little miracle...

More Disney Pics....

Last Family Vacation as Just the Three of US...

Sorry it has been a while... I will try to be better at this blogging thing.

Patrick, Gav and I just took our last trip as "just the three of us this Sept" We decided we wanted Gavin to experience Disney and so my parents and the three of us headed to Orlando. It was a blast and although I was 6 months pregnant... I wouldnt take it back for anything. Gavin was the perfect age to go... everything was so... REAL. Like... Mickey and Buzz Lightyear.

I am going for my 7 month check up this Wed and am praying all is still well with Chloe. I have been getting very uncomfortable lately but all is worth it in the end. Here are a few pics from our awesome trip to Disney World...

WOW---It's been a while!

Sorry for the long break... It has been a while and our lives have been very busy for a while. So... I am 22 weeks now into my 2nd pregnancy and all is going well. I feel great, other than getting very tired easily. AND... we found out Baby Isbell is a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! We are very excited about this and cannot wait to meet " Chloe Lynn" Gavin is going to be the best big brother. He already burps his stuffed animals and is getting lots of practice while we are waiting on her to make her arrival.
Patrick new job is going great. He is at a job that is low stress and it better money. SO those two things alone are a blessing in themselves.
I am still working full time and am praying that God opens a door and a way for me to go part time once Chloe Lynn arrives. I want to cherish these days with my kids b/c they are only little once.
I will try and post some more pics soon.
