1 Blissful Year

  Last Monday, April 19th, we celebrated our first anniversary of marriage.  This is has seemed like one of the fastest and craziest years of my life.  We are constantly being showered with blessings from above.  And my marriage is a reminder of a quote that my good friend, George W. Bush, said  "God is good...All the time!"  If I were a single woman and if Andrew were a single man, the same would still be true.  I am so grateful for my life and my husband.

The Same Old You.

  I was confessing to my husband the other day how I wish people would just say I look pregnant (since they know that I am now), instead of telling me how they think I look the same as always.  When you can't button your pants and you've put on a few pounds, this stops becoming a compliment.  :)  I really don't mind, these people are my friends, how do I know that they want me to feel good???   Because the woman at the health food store, who is not my friend, not yet at least, said, "You are showing a lot more than I ever did at 12 weeks."  I love her for her honesty, but you know that was not said for the amount of love for me.  haha  So, my friends, she outed you.  She could see the difference.

  There isn't much that could bring me down these days, that is, in regards to my baby bump.  I love it!  I feel like the most beautiful woman in the world...more beautiful than I have ever felt.  I have a new life inside of me.   Andrew does a fantastic job of reminding me how attracted he is to me.  Really, he's the only one I care about finding me attractive.  (Like you didn't already know that.)  Basically, I love everyone's excitement.  It's such a blessing to see how many people are already loving our sweet baby.  Everything about our experience is a gift from the Lord.  There's no doubt about it to us...and you can't change our mind!

We're Having a Baby!!!

We are pleased to announce to the world...or whoever my stumble upon our blog...that we are joining the ranks of parenthood.  Our little one will be joining us in late October.  We are praying and loving as best we can on the little lime that inside me.  Next week it'll be a plum.  God is so good.  I find comfort in the fact that He is so much bigger than I am, and that whatever excitements and challenges come our way in the next nine months (not to mention the next fifty years) He will be our strength and our guide.  Thanks for sharing in our excitement.  I can't wait to start sewing some maternity pieces that I have found on some of these crafty blogs. :)
