"Every Baby is a Blessing"

A favourite book of Hannah's since she was very little has been her beloved Baby's Bible (if you just pick it up you can tell how loved it has been since the book I thought could never be destroyed has seen better days!)

This is the cover and I love it! 

I would not say that before we took Hannah for granted. We knew what a blessing she is in our life  and love her to death. 

But with recently going through the loss of a little one I've realized so much more how great a blessing each life truly is! 

There are a lot of people out there who have lost a number of babies just desperately trying to have one. 

There are a lot of people out there who have been trying to have kids for months...even years! 

There are a lot of people out there that can't have a baby on their own. 

Each baby truly is a blessing!

I'm so glad Hannah loves to read her Bible and lets me have that visual reminder practically every day (and if so numerous times in that day!) 

I'm so glad Hannah is in our lives and we had the blessing to have her and hold her and watch her grow up! 


Not going to lie, the last couple of weeks Matt and I both admitted to hugging Hannah a little tighter and a little longer and kissing her more than before!

My challenge to you...

remember what a blessing your "baby" is in your life and give that "baby" a hug and let them know how grateful you are for them! 


  1. Agree. When Gavin goes to sleep I know I should just put him in his crib, but I can't help but just hold him and snuggle. When you are waiting for someone for so long, even when you don't know "who" that someone is, those snuggle times seem a little more precious.

  2. I accept that challenge! Lately I have been feeling other people's losses and births very personally - I've been thinking about babies a lot! I make sure to make more time for Emeliah, and take more deep breaths if she is getting a bit difficult, kiss and hug her more, and cuddle with her more at night before she goes to bed. When she's IN bed I want to get her back up! I miss her during the day when I'm at work and can't wait to pick her up again, even if she's crazy that night LOL. Your family's loss affected me strongly and I hope you guys are doing well, and I definitely agree, every baby is precious. I can't wait for another!

  3. I love both of my girls completely and even though a lot of times they are so tiring, especially with Seth being gone so much, I know I wouldn't trade them for anything! How special that Hannah loves that book! I know it makes me so excited when Bella wants to pray and tells me that Jesus loves her!

  4. It can wear a person down when your child is having a rough few days, and this is exactly what I needed today! Thank you.
