More Pics of My Baby Girl

The night nurse made Reese this little name card. All the details mean so much to us.

Last night during one of our little "mother~daughter" chats. ; )

Isn't this pink bow the cutest thing? It's glued to her head!

This morning we did a photo shoot with Reese and used this pink blanket under her. So precious.

I think she looks like Jason. ; )

Found your blog through the Kelly's Korner blog and wanted to let you know I am praying for you and your family. Your daughter is beautiful! As a new mom myself, I can't imagine the immensely difficult time you are going through, but One who does is the One who hasn't left your side since the beginning. Praying that God grants wisdom to Reese's medical team, peace and perseverence to you and your husband, and resiliance, comfort, and healing to your sweet baby girl.

Dearest Katie...I'm with Mandy too...you are the strongest person I know. You are my "scripture sister"...every card I've ever received from you has a verse on it for me. I wish I had kept them all to write them back to you, but you know what I know...they are written on your heart as you have diligently studied God's word for so many years. Let Him heal you with His words.....I know you don't feel as strong as you are, but He is going to sustain you. I'm praying constantly. Love you love you love you.

sweethomealagirl said...

I've been keeping up with you for a while now, but I've not commented until Reese's birth. I am so very sorry that y'all are having to walk thru this valley, but I know the God of peace & comfort is walking right beside you. Y'all are in my prayers.

Rebecca said...

Katie and Jason, our hearts are breaking for you both as you are walking through one of the toughest valleys. We are praying for you and thinking of you during these days! Reese is precious, perfect, and beautiful! I love how you have chats with her and take so many pictures, you will always cherish them.

I know you don't need another story of someone elses pain and loss, just know that we are keenly aware of the pain you feel in your hearts. Please feel free to email me if you want to. rebeccamutz@gmail.com

Hold her until you hurt, until you have her memory written on your heart. Smell her and kiss her often, tell her stories, and put socks or hats on her. Just enjoy her.

Praying constantly,
Rebecca (Rainey) Mutz
(I grew up in LR)
