Wow! It has been a long time since I have sat down to write. There have been so many times that I have wanted to, but life has gotten busy for our family these past couple of years and as crazy as it has been, it truly has been a blessing!!
On April 17, 2017 we added a new addition to our family. Trinity Hope Garner was born at 33 weeks gestation, perfect and strong. She spent 10 days in the NICU before joining our family at home. Life has not slowed down since. She and Taysen are 18 months apart. None of my children have been this close in age and it's definitely a challenge at times. Taysen still requires so much and can't quite understand when Trinity takes priority over him at times. It is tough! He loves his baby sister so much though and is so cute with her! Always wanting to hold her and kiss her.
Before we lost Jaylen, Mike didn't really want any more kids. We had come to the agreement that we were done and our family was complete. At times, I wasn't sure if I felt the same way, but we were happy and content. About 2 weeks before losing Jaylen, I felt content and was confident that our family was complete. The night we lost Jaylen that all changed. Immediately Mike and I both felt that we needed not one, but two more children. I was surprised when Mike came to me and said that he had the impression in the hospital that we needed more because I had that exact same impression.
