Baby :)

We had our ultrasound yesterday, so I have a picture, but it's not very good quality, because I took it from the awesome video they gave us! Long story short, my doctor's office tried to cancel my ultrasound appointment for the second time and my incredible husband called and got them to get us an appointment at the hospital, which turned out to be a major blessing in disguise. The lady who did the ultrasound took a lot more time than the ultrasound doctor who did our first ultrasound with Kade. It was amazing!

Our baby, measuring 9 weeks, 5 days, kicked its arms and legs and wiggled. It had a little heart that was very clearly pulsing and beating at 176 bpm in its chest. We saw the umbilical cord, and even the blood rushing through the cord from my body to the baby's.

 We showed it to our parents and when my dad saw it, he said, "How could anyone ever say that THAT is not a baby?"

New Things...

Well, I was hoping to have a picture to go with this post, but that sort of got postponed. Oh well, you can use your imagination.

There have been lots of new things going on in our family lately. Michael is now the new youth pastor at our church, we had to buy a new car (he drives over an hour to work each way, and his car finally died), and-- sometime, early next year, we will be having a new baby in our house!

I am a little over 8 weeks pregnant and I was supposed to have an ultrasound on Tuesday, but it got moved.  Everything seems to be going ok in there, though. I am sick, tired, and oh, did I mention sick? It's fine, though!  Every bit of nausea serves to remind me that there really is a baby in there! Thank you, Jesus!

So, in just a few months, we will be a family of four--which has to be fun, right? I grew up in a family of four! We're looking forward to all the fun things we will do together--and all the other awesome, new things God has in store for us!
