just got bigger! That's right, we are expecting our second little one around August 31st, 2008. Saying that still seems kinda surreal, but it sunk in a little more on Monday when we got to see the new baby in action. Even though he/she was only the size of a peanut, we could already see the little arms moving and heart beating at 170 beats per minute. We are thrilled and once again blown away by God's miracle of creation. Just to think that this tiny little fetus will one day be walking and talking and laughing and crying...displaying his/her God given personality, gifts, flaws...all of which are being so perfectly knit together now in my womb. Wow. What a call to worship.
I'm nine weeks along, and the pregnancy has been pretty easy although I am more nauseous this time than last. (I can hear the boy predictions already...) We've tried explaining to Lily what's going on, and every time we ask her, "Do you want to be a big sister?" She replies, "No." Hopefully that will change! Whenever I point to my tummy and tell her that the baby is inside, she points and says, "Open." After explaining that the baby has to stay inside mommy to grow some more, she kisses my tummy and says "Hi." So maybe she does get it. I'm sure it will begin to make more sense once my belly starts expanding.
We would really love your prayers for a healthy pregnancy and smooth transition as our family grows. Here's pictures of that sweet little baby just chillin inside Momma.
