3 Weeks Blessed!

We’ve reached a day we never thought we’d see.  Actually 21 of those to be exact.  Jules is a complete miracle to us and we are falling in love with her a little more every day.

Happy 3 Weeks Birthday little girl!

Juliet got dressed up in her new outfit from Auntie Sarah to celebrate her 3 week birthday.  It’s amazing how big a (fits 5-8 lb) dress looks on a little lady:)  Looking good Jules.

The other hoodlums didn’t want to be left out…

Oh how I’m loving the stage of silly smiles:)

We were blessed by a great dinner that also came with balloons and treats for Jules’ 3 week birthday (Thanks Lisa!)  The balloons have kept the older two busy all night, and we thought we’d have a little fun with them for photos…

It started out okay…

but soon the fun wore off.

But sister insisted on one more with her.  Two pretty ladies.

In these last 3 weeks Jules has:

Beaten the odds

Touched lives

Changed our lives

Served a huge purpose


Won our hearts

I wonder what she’ll do in the next 3 weeks:)

Who are we to say that not every life matters….Our little Jule’s matters more than we’ll ever know!

  1. Hey Allie!
    I started reading your blog a while back for decorating ideas and then have followed your journey of Tri18. I originally was hooked on your blog b/c of your similar decorating style and we have the same name…and so do our husbands…and we both live in MN! Anyway, I just want to let you know that your sweet, beautiful blessing from above is such an inspiration. I appreciate that you are cherishing every moment and taking the time to share with the rest us out there! Thanks you and God bless <3

  2. Every time I read your posts I am so touched by the awesomeness of our God. He knew what he was doing when he chose you for Little Baby Juliet.
    Happy 3 week birthday to an amazing little lady.
    Thank you for sharing your family.

  3. Congrats on your 3 week birthday! You have grown and in the meantime everyone else has grown through you. Blessings little one! God is good!

  5. Hi Allie,
    I found your blog a while back and love seeing what you’ve done with your house! Ryan and I have been working on our house and it’s been a lot of fun checking out all your ideas. :) A few months ago, I was looking at your blog and saw that you were pregnant (it had been a while since I had checked your blog, I guess). As I started reading your posts, I had tears streaming down my face for you and your family. Ryan was working that night and had called me and I answered the phone in tears. I told him about your story and since that night we’ve been praying for you guys. I’ve been meaning to post this since before Juliet was even born, but never did. It’s amazing to see your faith and it’s such a blessing that you and your family are getting to spend this precious time with your little one. She is absolutely darling! Thanks for keeping us updated on how things are going. You will continue to be in our prayers!
