Momma's back

Hey Guys!
It's Court! I know you've been enjoying my man's take on this sitch, but it's momma's turn now :).
In all seriousness, I haven't been much for words lately and Jarrett has truly been pulling the load. I'd start to type and hospital staff would pop-in(vitals, not on the monitor, blood draw, etc.) or Breaker would move or not like my position, or I'd have the dreaded fluid leak. It's so much easier to bake a baby on your feet! To say our family misses normalcy would be an understatement. I have a hard time believing I've been in the bed for almost two weeks-craziness.

God has blessed me (and the fam) with a sense of peace. Remarkably the days go by fairly quickly and it doesn't feel like it's been two weeks. As far as looking ahead, we set mini-goals. It's not as daunting to countdown to weekly sonograms and gestational milestones. At first six weeks was overwhelming, but now we can envision it.

I'm pretty certain we've made it this far because of the precious family and friends (AKA angels) God has put in our lives and given us the privilege of crossing paths with. You guys reading have been sustainers. We feel prayers without a doubt.

We can't thank everyone enough for their prayers, visits, emails, FB posts, Tweets,etc. I could go on and on! I'm being a little mushy:). Y'all may be ready for Jarrett to take over!
I want go on any more. But just know we love you all lots and are so thankful for your presence in our lives.


  1. Hey Court- Just wanted to say hi & let you know I really enjoyed meeting you and your sweet mom this week; it was great to put a personality behind who we've been praying for. I look forward to getting to the days when we're all in B'wick... and guess what... our house is officially under contract- can I get a Hallelujah!!! We're pumped! So, you just keep Breaker in the oven for a few more weeks and we may just all get home at the same time:) Hang in the momma-C-ta!

  2. Hi sweets! So thankful you and baby BOY Bridges are doing excellent! And SO excited it's a BOY! Love the name Breaker - absolutely precious. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Keep doing what you're doing, Breaker is so lucky to have such a good, strong mommy!

  3. Brooke--It was a treat to meet you too! We can't wait to all be in Brunswick together. Hope Mike has had a good week at SGHS :) Give Palmer a squeeze for me! Oh, CONGRATS on your contract too. That's so exciting!! Momma-C-ta is Finley's nickname for me :)
    Helen--We're so excited for a boy too! It's all new territory and you're going to have to fill me in. I'm going to need shopping tips. Turner always looks so adorable. Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers. I can't wait to be back and go to the park w/you and our little men!
