“For This Child I Have Prayed”

Some of you may have noticed my hiatus from blogging.  I have been spending much of my time on the couch resting, drinking fluids and making frequent trips to the bathroom.  It will all be worth it in the end, though, because…we are expecting!!  I forgot how rough the early stages of pregnancy can be.  I am just starting to feel a smidge back to “normal” as the sickness is subsiding and my energy levels are coming back slowly.  Hopefully I’ll be back to my blogging self in the near future!

We found out we were pregnant on Christmas day–what a gift! We are excited to give Rachel the experience of having a little brother or a sister and we know she will be an amazing big sister! She already cares for her baby dolls in such a sweet way, I can’t wait for her to help take care of this new baby too.

This new little baby is already so loved and I can’t help but wonder how many more blessings God has in store for our growing family.  We can’t wait to welcome our little bundle at the end of the summer!
