Completely Random ; )

Happy Friday!

I'm so excited because next week at my appointment we are hoping to schedule Colson's C section date. His birthday! Only the Lord knows when he will come into this world, but it's fun to have a specific July day in mind. At least we'll know he will be here that day or before.


All of our baby books are Penny Laine. Some stores carry them or you can order online. They have so many cute options. ; )


So, I guess you are all siding with Jason about painting the trunk red. ; ) I just don't know. I love most anything red...cars, purses, pens, stationery, clothes, shoes, so I'll try to be convinced about furniture. We'll see.


Some sweet friends and I met at a restaurant this week to celebrate Carrie's (purple shirt bottom left) third little boy. She is due any day with baby Brady. Boys boys everywhere. ; )


Guess what I received in the mail!? I may be the last to know about this website, but I'm thrilled!
I have been looking for an easy way to print off my posts into a book especially since I'm sharing so much of my feelings concerning Zach, Reese, and Colson. I would be devastated if something happened to blogspot, and all of my entries were lost. I needed some backup. ; )

Here is the Rowe family 2008 edition from www.blog2print.com.
It's SO easy and has no frills which is just what I wanted. You basically pick out the title, cover design, and way you want your posts to look like in your book. You don't have to edit each page. I just ordered our 2009 book and plan to order one at the end of each year.
I know, I know it's the little things in life.

A precious woman recently commented, "I envy your time being pregnant and preparing, I've never had that." Wow. I need to remind myself of this every time I even want to complain about my aching body and being pregnant for so long.

I know we all have our mountains to face in life, and there is always something to be thankful for.
Z and his big mouth...like father like son. Just kidding, honey. ; )
Jason would say it was definitely the other way around.


I opened Colson's closet yesterday and noticed something...it still smells like Reese. What a gift from the LORD! Only He could do pull this off. All baby boy clothes, blankets, and burp cloths yet with her familiar scent. Makes my heart happy.
Miss you, precious girl.

Thank you for continuing to lift us up in prayer...about Reese, our healing, Colson's health, my health. Everything the LORD puts on your heart for us. We feel them we feel them!


I will meet with you there...I will speak with you...

Exodus 25:22

I love when you share pics of Reese. And I had another friend that used that same website to print her blog...she loved it! I'm going to have to do that, as well.

Oh, that last picture sent me into tears, I just think she is so perfect.


Yes..I envy you too..I was on bed rest..tons, when I was pregnant..but the reward was greater than all the bordom!

Question..can you pick and choose which posts you want in the book?

Mary said...

That last picture of you holding Reese got my heartstrings, too! SO precious!!

Had you thought about painting Colson's name on the toy chest? You could do that in Red if you don't think you would like the whole thing red. Just an idea...;)

Amanda said...

Oh Katie!!!! I love the picture of you and Reese. The comment about the nursery closet smelling like Reese reminded me of an email my dad sent me recently about a baby born very early and they told the momma the baby wouldn't live..they prayed and prayed...the baby did live and when she was bigger (I am skipping a lot). They were outside and it was about to start raining and the little girl said to her momma do you smell that (the rain)???? It smells like him (Jesus). He had been there with her the entire time. It was so very sweet. I will see if I can find the email and send it to you.

Thank you so much for sharing with us about printing the blogs. I've been blogging since 2006 and I used to be really good at it and I've not been doing too well. I will be sure to get better at it. :) I love your pics and Reese is so beautiful!

OMG I am so excited to check out that website. I have been searching for an easy way for SOOO long and just didn't have time to edit each and every post, etc. AND it looks FAB. Thanks a million billion!

Tracychele @ The Week-Ender said...

Such a sweet picture, Katie. That melts my heart. I hope you will always remember that scent. Maybe put something in a storage container so the smell will stay and open when you need to feel close to her. She is always there. Take care of you.

Megsy said...

I love that you posted about blog2print. I keep checking into using them and I am so glad to know you had a good experience. Do you happen to have any pictures of the inside of the book? I am curious about the layout. Many blessings to your sweet family. I have been following you ever since Kelly's Korner started praying for baby Reese.
