INSPIRING WOMEN {what she's doing now}

This month I decided to do something a little different in celebration of sweet baby Jayzen. Remember Jessica Dupass and her sweet story, well she had her baby boy and he is home and healthy! Instead of featuring someone new I decided to go out and take pictures of Jayzen.
I love the way a house feels when there is a newborn there. It is so quite, peaceful, and happy. (When they are asleep that is) Being around a newborn always gives me this overwhelming feeling of our Saviors love and what Heaven will one day feel like. I also love seeing a mom with her new baby. There is something so special and so heavenly about the love between a mother and her child. I asked Jessica to tell us her birth story in a mini version.

Here it is...

On August 12, 2014 @ 12:26 PM, Jayzen Maddox Dupass came into this world weighing 6 lbs. 1 oz, 18 1/4 inches, beautiful as ever, and causing a scene. My entire pregnancy was scary and very stressful. So, why would he make his arrival any different?
We had started the morning at the hospital but we weren't there to bring little man into this world! Nope! We were there to have this stubborn little guy flipped into the head down position. He was transverse breech (his head was in my ribs, back up, bum in my other ribs with his cute little toes towards my cervix). We went to the hospital to have a procedure called ECV (External Cephalic Version) done. External cephalic version, or version, is a procedure used to turn a fetus from a breech position or side-lying (transverse) position into a head-down (vertex) position before labor begins. When successful, version makes it possible for you to try a vaginal birth. Well long story short neither of us liked the procedure very much and we both had really bad reactions to the epidural and the Version. Jayzen's heart rate dropped really low after he was flipped so, we ended up in an emergency C-Section. It took 7 minutes from the time his heart rate dropped until he was out. When he was born he wasn't breathing properly and his heart rate was really low. He really likes to scare us! I have a feeling that he's going to be the one that gives me gray hair. Jayzen is the answer to many prayers...He is healthy, beautiful and perfectly perfect!
There have been many pieces to our puzzle that have been missing and with him he brought those pieces and completed our puzzle. I can officially say that he is the beginning to our happily ever after.

I just want to thank Jessica for being so willing to share her birth story. She is an amazing person who deserves so much. Jayzen is so lucky to have her as a mother. She loves her boys with all her heart and cares for them in a way that is unimaginable. Thanks again Jessica!

Letters to Em {Emry Doll}

Dear Emry, You are so sweet, loving and kind to this little doll. Your reaction to this sweet doll was better than I could have imagined. I can already tell that you will be the most amazing mama one day. I love you, sweetheart. 
Love, Mama

I finally got around to taking pictures of little miss in her birthday dress with her birthday doll:) Ashley Whetman with "Sew Darling" made this precious doll for Emry. It was so sweet when Emry opened her.. She gave her a big hug and kiss. It immediately melted my heart. She loves this doll so much, she sleeps with her every night. Be prepared for a billion pics of Emry and "Emry Doll"... there were too many good ones to pick just a few.
