Our precious daughter Karinne was diagnosed with Acrania, a terminal diagnosis, at 13 weeks gestation by a routine sonogram. Our unconditional love for her, our deep desire to hold her in our arms, as well as our Christian faith led us without hesitation to the decision to continue the pregnancy. This website was created in Karinne's honor with the hope that her brief but mighty life would never be forgotten and that her story could make a lasting impact in the lives of others.
Well, the time has flown by far too fast and Caiden turned 2 months old yesterday. He's getting so big and fun and more and more adorable by the day. And unfortunately two months also means the end of my maternity leave and the return to teaching high school art tomorrow morning. BOO-HOO!!!! I really really don't want to go back to work tomorrow. I will really really miss these wonderful days at home with my little man Caiden.
I could really cry up a storm if I would let myself. I'm going to try really hard not to do that. I would truly appreciate prayers that everything would go as smoothly as possible - for me at work - for Caiden at daycare - for all of us trying to get ready in the morning (yikes!)
I thought I would share a couple of photos that show how Caiden has grown and changed. I will take a photo of him with this bear each month. Here are the 1st 3 photos:
Caiden at 1 week
Caiden at 1 month
Caiden at 2 months
As you can see, he has grown just a little bit! 11 lbs. 8 oz - 2 weeks ago!!! And he's lost a lot of his hair!!
Well - Caiden is down for bed. So I suppose I better go to bed too. Hopefully we'll get a good night's sleep and be ready for the big day tomorrow. Still can't believe I have to go back to work. =(
