Grace Upon Grace

Published in Personal, Ashley
This sweet baby girl. I can hardly believe I am typing those words. She has been prayed for, hoped for and so deeply loved even before her very first heartbeat. God heard the whispers and prayers of Chris and my heart for her and with each kick I feel its surreal to think she is going be in our arms in a few months!  
 
To be honest, I thought God had used my pregnancy with Greyson to teach me all I was going to as an expectant mother, but how I was so wrong. God has already used this baby girl in such a unique way already, teaching me more about myself and who He says I am and calls me to be. This baby girl has shown me different facets of God's deep deep love and unchanging, unwavering grace. Grace upon grace, that's what this baby and Greyson are. 
 
A cashier at the store the other day asked me when I was due and if it was my first child... I could barely contain my joy and excitement! I told her we are having a daughter and have a beautiful son. Each time I say those words I am overwhelmed with gratitude that I have the honor to say that. I don't take those words lightly or for granted and can hardly believe them as they fall out of my lips. I know that these children are complete blessings and I am so humbled that God would choose me to mother them for the rest of my life. It brings tears to my eyes as I think about how Greyson has rocked Chris and my world so completely in the best way possible and now this little girl is going to do the same. They both keep making us better versions of ourselves. 
 
My sweet baby girl, the amount of love I have for you can't even be put into words or even partially measured. Listening to your brother talk to my tummy and speak words of love to you melts my heart and is just a taste of what him and your daddy and I (and Remington!) feel for you. I can't wait for the day when I will hold you and look into your eyes for the very first time and know that our family of four will be complete.
