jumping in.

hi. if you are joining me here, you probably just read my instagram post, or heard from a friend, or from me, Mike or my family about this crazy idea of mine to start a blog. truthfully, this is something that has been on my heart for quite some time, ever since we learned the initial shocking news about baby #2. and truthfully, it’s very scary for me to share my life with the world, so i am jumping in head first.

if you know me more personally, you know i lay awake most nights with thoughts and feelings running through my head. i decided, for me, that it would be most helpful and therapeutic to get them out, to make a journal of sorts. and that is where this blog was born – 2 am, awake with my feelings.

my hopes and goals for this space are:

  • to provide a place where friends and family can stay up-to-date with our journey during this pregnancy and into parenthood with two under two
  • to be an advocate for our baby and share resources we have found helpful
  • to connect with others walking a similar path
  • to *hopefully* ease my mind (and get a little more sleep at night)

if you happened here by chance, or just have no idea what i am talking about, my name is Stefanie. i am recently 30 and currently pregnant with our second baby who has been blessed with an extra chromosome. it’s extremely rare for my age, but there is a 90% chance our baby will have down syndrome. we will know more definitively what is going on with baby in the coming weeks. more on that later.

in the meantime, i ask that we keep this space positive and full of prayer. if you know anyone who is sharing in this same journey, please share this with them. feel free to comment! i would love to connect with everyone.
