our angel baby

So, I found out I was pregnant on Monday, October 13. What a happy day that was!!! Chris and I wanted to keep it a secret until we got my blood test results back to see what my numbers were. Got the results last Wednesday, numbers weren't good and I was in extreme pain with all the signs of a miscarriage waiting to happen. My doctor put me on bed rest because she thought there might be hope to save the pregnancy. I went over to my parents house and told them. Not the way we wanted to tell the family but since I had been put on bed rest we figured we better say something fast. We had a special way to tell our families all planned out but that didn't happen (this time). I had two more rounds of blood tests on Thursday and just waited and waited until Friday came. My mom came up and spent the day with me while we waited for the call from the doctor. It wasn't the call we wanted but we were prepared. My numbers had gone down and I ended up losing the baby last Wednesday, I was 6 weeks. Totally broke our hearts. I felt like a hermit crab all weekend. I didn't want to talk to or see anyone. Not like me at all. It seemed like every thing we watched on tv had babies and pregnant women. We couldn't escape it. I really can't even describe the way I feel. It's like part of me has been taken away and is missing. Something Chris and I have individually dreamed of since we were kids was taken away. We know and trust that this was part of God's will for our life. It's so cool and comforting to know that we will get to hold our little angel baby one day in Heaven. God knows the desires of our heart and He is going to bless them in His timing. Our hearts and arms long to be full and one day soon they will be! Can't even tell you how excited we are to one day be parents and raise our children up in the Lord. We have the most incredible family and friends. Their love has brought so much joy and comfort to our hearts this past week. Our house is filled with the sweetest notes, flowers, food.. messages. God is so good and His love is amazing. Please continue to lift us up in prayer as I go back to the doctor tomorrow for more blood tests and will continue to do so until the day I give birth! Love you sweet friends. Thank you for everything.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
