On February 25th 2004 the love of my life was born.

Her name is Maggie. 

She is my sister, my best friend, my joy, my heart, my inspiration, the apple of my eye.

She saves my life every day with her smile and her spunk.

I cannot imagine life without her.

She is my greatest joy and my greatest blessing.

I honestly doubt I could ever love anyone or anything more than this child.

So I’m a total wimp…

…when it comes to scary/horror films that is.

always have been.

I’m a TOTAL baby. 

EVERYTHING literally creeps me out. 

It’s kinda bad.

I always want to be scared. 

I love the suspense and the intrigue - but it ends there and I totally find myself regretting it.

So then I got this crazy/brilliant idea…

let’s thicken my skin, let’s build up my immunity to fear…

LET’S PUSH MARY’S BUTTONS AND SEE HOW MANY AND HOW MUCH HORROR I PUT MYSELF THROUGH BEFORE I FIND A BREAKING POINT.

Brilliant right?

Well, yes.

kinda. 

I’ve managed to put myself through said “horror” flicks without becoming thoroughly afraid [yet…].

[watch me jinx myself here]

Anyway I’ve put myself through these generally un-terrifying movies dubbed “horror/thriller films” and achieved a feeling of success.

So from one wimp to another - here goes:

The Skeleton Key
The Rite
Apollo 18
The Woman in Black
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter 

I plan on using these when I get ganged up on to watch a scary movie.

This picture is truly a miracle to behold. This baby shouldn’t ever have been born according to the doctors, but God had a different plan. <3 :)
Jonathan’s (his name) mom wrote this while she was still carrying him during her pregnancy:“At just under 18 weeks into our pregnancy, Jason and I learned that we were having another little boy. Within 30 minutes of that happy news came the knowledge that something had been detected by ultrasound that required a level 2 ultrasound and visit to the specialist. The next day, our worst fears were realized as we were told that our baby had issues that were “fatal” and “incompatible with life”. Given the options of terminating the pregnancy or carrying a baby that would not live, we felt devastated and hopeless. In the end, we realized that it was not our decision to make and so we chose to leave it in God’s hands.  Once we made that decision, we immediately felt the weight lift and we were completely at peace.  We named our baby Jonathan, because it means “gift from God” and that’s exactly what Jonathan is. 
I am now 31 weeks pregnant and although there are good and bad days, I can say that Jason and I have never once looked back or regretted our decision to continue to carry this little boy. We don’t know what lies ahead, but one thing has become clear: that things are not exactly what they seemed at 18 weeks. Please see our journal entries for more of Jonathan’s story.  We know so many of you are praying for us and we cannot thank you enough for that. Keep those prayers coming! Love to you all, Lauren, Jason and Tyler Peetz”
