My First Mother’s Day

     Once upon a time, in the last week or so of March, I came down with a nasty flu. It was so nasty that I was living on a over-the-counter fever reducer’s and sinus medication..until it dawned on me.. I could be pregnant, maybe I should lay off the drugs! Pregnancy happens with married people, you know. But after a couple months of negative pregnancy tests, I wasn’t too worried and hoped I could carry on with all the medicines I was taking in the midst of that ugly flu. As soon as I heard Marcus’ happy laugh coming from the bathroom { I made him go read the test, I was too anxious} I knew something was up! Sure enough, this is what he showed me…

So we laughed & laughed & prayed & took a couple more pictures..

This is what I looked like at 4 weeks {in too big pants, too} Yes, I’m sucking in..but wouldn’t you if somebody wanted to take a picture of you midsection?!

This baby is due 11/26/12, which should be perfect timing for me to stuff my face at Thanksgiving with no regret. That, and have a perfect excuse to never finish my Christmas shopping.

Honestly, we are completely honored & humbled that God has blessed us with such a privilege.

….and looking forward to the end of morning sickness ;)
