"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart.." Jeremiah 1:5
Yes, this is a baby...no, it's not actually my baby. But, I have been blessed to find out that we are going to be having another baby. This is what baby Rose looks like about now in my womb at 12 1/2 weeks. This pregnancy has brought lots of emotions: surprise, doubt, excitement, surprise, joy, surprise.....you get the point. I know that Brian and I really shouldn't be that surprised, when you practice natural family planning, you know that God's gift of life could always happen. I guess it has just been so long since our last pregnancy that we thought we were finished. But lo and behold, God had other exciting plans for our family. And that is exciting! Just as that verse promises, He knew this little one in my belly before He even formed him. Wow! Gives me goosebumps. Our kids are so excited, and that just makes this all the more exciting for us too. We are talking baby names at supper, lots of questions about what the baby is doing now in my stomach, how big is the baby, things like that. Beau believes that the baby has a diaper on now, no matter how much I try to convince him otherwise! So, as we embark on this next chapter in our family, we realize that we have to put our faith in God's hands as He gives us this blessing. In just 6 short weeks, we will find out the sex of the baby, so I will keep you posted!
