We are so excited for Braelyn Elizabeth Mitchell's arrival! I have been on bed rest for 11 weeks due to some complications. Thankfully, Braelyn is extremely healthy and getting stronger by the day. We have doctors appointments weekly and have had good reports for several weeks. Recently, I was told that they would allow me to get off of bed rest at 35 weeks, which is only six weeks away!! Valentine's weekend - Here we come!! It is such a relief to have an actual day to look forward to. There is a big possibility that Braelyn's arrival will not be long after that!!

God has blessed me with an amazing husband, Daniel. He has taken care of me through all of this, and has handled my meltdowns like a champ! I am so thankful to have such an amazing partner who has held my hand through all of the ups and downs that life has brought. We will celebrate our two year anniversary on June 21st!! Wow! So much has happened in our lives since we said "I do."

He is going to be such an amazing father!! Braelyn already has him wrapped around her little finger, and she isn't even here yet!! Can we say - Daddy's Girl?!?!

It is amazing to think that in as little as six weeks, we may be holding our little baby girl!! Can't wait!! God is amazing!!
