We Are Pleased to Announce.........
...that we are pregnant (again)! This time things are going really great so far! I am officially out of the first trimester and the baby is fabulous- and already so darn cute ;) We are due December 4th...just in time for Christmas! I am starting to feel much better, I am getting BIGGER by the moment, and getting excited for our family! My doctor has been keeping a close eye on me and checking me more often than she usually would-just taking extra precautions ( which we totally appreciate!) But, because
of this, we have gotten more
sonograms than usual-which is FABULOUS!!! We are amazed at how fast the baby grows and changes.
*The first picture is at 6 weeks. Looks like a peanut and that's about it.
*Picture number two is at 9 weeks. Just three weeks later and you can see it's head and body and the beginnings of arms and legs!
*Number three was just taken yesterday at 12 weeks. This is not the best picture, but during the
sonogram, the baby was moving
ALL over the place (which
is crazy because I can't feel a thing!) It's arms and legs are getting much longer and you could see all the fingers on one hand (the baby had Jazz hands- love that), and in one shot you could see the perfect little profile already-tiny little nose and everything!
We took Garrett with us yesterday, and he was FASCINATED! He was pointing out the spine, heart beat, brain, everything- now he thinks he should be a baby doctor (wait till he finds out what all that entails-that will be the end of that)! We feel like it is so important to make this a FAMILY journey as opposed to just Randy and I. We've already asked him if he wants to be in the room when the baby comes- he quickly declined. :)
I was at a women's dinner just 2 weeks after I found out that I was pregnant, we were still very anxious about the news and hadn't (even until just recently) shared our news with anyone. The speaker was talking about when she was pregnant with her daughter and shared a scripture that she prayed over that baby....at that moment I knew that it was a promise that I too must claim for my little one on the way, and will continue to pray it everyday.....
"He who began a good work in me,
will be faithful to complete it!"
As we continue to get more excited and prepare for this tiny little joy that we already love so much, we ask that you pray for us as a whole family. That this is a precious time for Randy, Garrett and I to bond and really love and enjoy the process!
We will keep you updated and posted regularly! Can't wait to share it with those of you who love us!
