Blessings Overflowing....

As I sit here, the night before our due date, I think back to my last post. The post where we announced to the world our exciting news that we were finally expecting! Since my last post our due date was moved from August 28 to August 26. I never got morning/afternoon/all-day sickness; just nauseous in the beginning. I have loved every minute of being pregnant! From getting to feel those first little flutters to the full out rolling  around here in the end. I have to say that I have been blessed with a wonderful pregnancy.

We decided when we first started trying that we would not find out the sex. Well, Baby Doodles made this easy for us to do. When we went for our 20 week ultrasound, the baby moved 3 times within the 45 minute ultrasound and never even gave us a decent profile picture. Our doctor doesn't do any other ultrasounds unless necessary, so we were never even tempted to find out what we were having.

That is the thing we are looking forward to most whenever Baby Doodles decides to make his/her appearance. We are anxiously awaiting that day, and it looks like Baby is in no hurry. We have scheduled our induction for September 4 because as of our appointment today there has been no progress. We know that God has things in control and Baby Doodles will come when ready.

We ask that you continue to pray for us. Pray that labor and delivery go smoothly. Pray that baby is healthy. Most importantly pray that Dudley and I raise this baby to love God and live for Him daily!

December 19, 2013.....

December 19, 2013. A day I will never forget.

I know I don't have many followers, but to those of you I do have, do you remember this post?

Well, God most definitely knew better than we did.

On the morning of December 19, Dudley and I received the greatest Christmas present we could have asked for:

We are expecting are little one August 28, 2014! 

What a journey we have already been through. I have had to give blood 3 times before actually seeing the doctor. We had our initial visit on January 2 where we got to see our little sweet pea for the first time and see it's heartbeat. Then today,  we went back to Dr. Gentry and we not only got to see it's head, body, legs, arms and spinal cord, but we got to see it kick and hear it's heartbeat! 

There are so many emotions we are feeling and thoughts running through our heads, but the biggest one is how awesome our God is! Nothing else can explain this phenomenon called life and the process of how it is created. We are so grateful that He has deemed us worthy to carry, watch over, and love one of His children. 

We ask all of you that you would be there with us to help us raise this little one to know the Lord and to raise it to spread the good news of Christ.
