I’m feeling especially grateful tonight for friends near and far who’ve held my hand, rubbed my back, and taught me how to put one foot in front of the other again!
It’s been 3 months since I was pregnant last, and not a day goes by without thinking of my Blaise but knowing that you all are thinking of my baby too makes me feel better.
Thank you <3

Seasons of Love

“How do you measure a season of love??? 525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes….”
When I think about how many minutes and moments PAXdaddy Aaron and I have spent together over our 17 years of marriage, my only wish is that I could remember each and every memory; the more time passes and the more experiences we’ve had, the more that the good, the bad, and the ugly fade together into one sweet dream. So many hours and days and weeks, months and years we’ve spent together cultivating our personal garden. Each of our amazing children are growing as trees with fruit to nourish us as parents. As each year passes and our trees mature, we are enjoying so much abundant harvest from our personal garden! The seeds were sown with love and care years ago, and now we get to sit back, enjoy the shade and munch on some amazing produce! I’m not saying that it’s all been one long honeymoon; we’ve experienced a blight in the orchard and a few insect infestations, but our life together has been so blessed! With sunshine, Vitamin D, compassion, and communication, I’ve watched our tiny tendrils sprout and stretch into a blissful garden of Eden! Happy anniversary to the love of my life, my personal gardener, and the one who makes ALL our lives go ’round! Here’s to our past 17 years and 17 more, Aaron!

Happy FREE FRIDAY with PAXbaby.com and Tupelo Creative!

Our lucky winner this week will win a pair of Frozen inspired wrap scrap wall art pieces! Each piece measures 8″x10″ and is created with Didymos purple Facette wrap scrap, white linen, and then decoratively embroidered (frames NOT included).

Jess Lucas is the creator of Tupelo Creative. She works at home with her 2 year old girl (aptly named Elsa), and also has two boys, ages 6 and 7. Jess started Tupelo Creative as an outlet for her addled stay-at-home-mom brain when the boys were small, and then she had Elsa. When Jess discovered that wrapping helped both of them, she began tracking down all the wrap scraps she could, since that was the only way to “Try All the Wraps”. In an effort to keep babywearing close to herself as Elsa grows, she began crafting with the scraps.

Tupelo Creative now makes cosmetic bags and wall art using scraps from many different babywearing companies. Jess also has the option to send your own fabric or wrap scrap for custom makes!

You are not going to want to miss out on this adorable Free Friday giveaway!!

Tupelo Creative is also offering a PAXbaby following exclusive offer! Please use paxbaby15 at checkout for 15% off of your purchase through May 2016! If you have any questions do not hesitate to email Jess directly.

From PAXmommy Jillian:
“To my friends… you are amazing. Your hearts have poured love over our family, and so many prayers were said for our sweet baby. I could feel your strength and thank you for it, because it was a hard hard day. I know rough times are coming, and I am scared. The knowledge that you have lifted up our family keeps me confident that no matter the pain, I can handle it. Because of you. THANK YOU.”

PAXmommy Jillian & the entire PAXfamily is being loved upon, fed, and cared for during this difficult time and YOUR continued prayers, and positive thoughts are very much appreciated. <3

A message from PAXmommy Jillian and PAXdaddy Aaron:

“Aaron and I had to give our little herd the most difficult news last night. Telling them that their new baby has gone to Heaven and they will not be holding a sweet new person in their arms this November was the hardest thing we’ve ever done. Baby #8 was loved completely and perfectly; we understand that this is all part of God’s plan for our family, but we will be taking some time to grieve and mourn that we will never hear our baby’s laughter or be able to comfort our baby’s tears. Please pray for us as we reconcile our hopes & dreams with our new reality.

Scientifically, at our 11 week ultrasound yesterday, the amniotic sac measured only 5 weeks and was empty – no baby, no yolk, no heartbeat. Where there should have been a wiggly tiny baby was only emptiness and silence. Our midwife is following up with us to confirm with blood tests and another ultrasound, but at this point, we have no hope to see our baby thrive and grow. It’s currently a waiting game until my body realizes I’m no longer nourishing a new life and my miscarriage symptoms will begin.

As Christians we believe that a baby born directly to Heaven is a “Holy Innocent,” a pure soul who will act as our family’s special prayer warrior in Heaven until we meet again. This faith brings us great comfort, but doesn’t make our mourning any less painful heart emoticon

The kids would like to officially call the baby BB8 which stands for Baby Blaise, the patron Saint we’ve chosen to represent our sweet angel and whose presence I have felt through this pregnancy, and also as a tribute to our favorite family movie. On November 18, we will commemorate our sweet baby and rejoice that BB8 is safely in the arms of our loving God. I expect that I especially will need much love from our wonderful friends as I grieve the loss of our beloved baby along what was supposed to be an exciting 9 month journey but instead will be a rough path scattered with heartbreak and sorrow.

Already so adored, BB8 will be missed by us all and never forgotten. In peace, Jillian and Aaron”

Yesterday  kicked off National Infertility Awareness Week 2016. The theme this year is #StartAsking. As words aren’t always adequate, a simple heart will do. For each loss, you can share a blue heart, if you’re currently still walking this infertility path, a yellow heart, and for each child in your life, a red heart. Share this post with your friends and #StartAsking, raising awareness for all. Hope we may find comfort in discovering we are not alone.

BIG LOVE to all of you!!!

Belly wrapping!

When you were pregnant, did you wrap your belly with a woven wrap??
Not only does it look beautiful but it ads a little extra support when you need it most!

**listen to your body, and doctor – do not wrap too tightly, or all day. ;)
