A time of new beginnings

AH pregnancy announcement
AH baby carriage pregnancy announcement
It's true - we are going to be a family of three! It still feels surreal that God would bless us in this way - that there is actually a wee human being growing inside of me. He is so kind to entrust a little one to us. We are thrilled but nervous at the same time. If you pray, won't you please pray with us - that the Lord would keep this baby healthy as it grows, and that he/she would ultimately be used for God's glory?  Any advice from you lovely mamas is welcome, too!

Oh, and many thanks to dear and talented friend Ruby for taking our pregnancy announcement photos for us, which I hope is a comprehensible play on the theme of our wedding/this blog. We took the pictures when I was 14 weeks, though I am 15 weeks now. It is all going by so speedily, though I have to confess that I am so glad the first trimester is over!

  29. Ahhhhhhhh!!!! I am so excited for you! Although I have nothing good to say about pregnancy because I was so sick during it all, the day I gave birth (each time) were the most magical times in my life and I wish I could relive those days all over again, honestly.

    Cutest pictures ever!!!!! You will be in my prayers. And God, as you know, will send you the baby that is perfect for you. I cannot wait to see you through this wondrous journey! Yeah! a million times!

    As far as advice, if you want to get the book 'what to expect when you're expecting' every goodwill in the country carries at least a few issues at all times. I am not a big fan of parenting books, but I was given a copy of 'healthy sleep habits, happy baby' and it's just full of common sense stuff, like teaching your baby how to put themselves to bed instead of teaching them to always rely on you to do it.

    I am beyond excited for you, can you tell?????
