Birthday Photos

My very merry BIRTHDAY!!!

“But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children- with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.”- Psalm 103:17-18

It was a very happy birthday with my family!

It's a . . .

He's A BOY!!!
In the 2nd picture, his head is on the left and we can clearly see the spin and
his legs are pulled in on the right side of the photo:

The apt went really well. We said we did not want to know the gender unless she knew for sure... with in seconds of starting our ultrasound she said, "I know for sure... Do you want to know?" My husband and I said, "YES!" We are shocked that they could tell so early. She said, "it's a BOY" and showed us VERY clearly where everything was on the screen. And there is NO longer a cyst on my ovary. Praise the Lord. And they said I'd lost some weight (but in a healthy way cause I have not been sick and I've stayed active). Good News across the board.

I'm pregnant with my son. He is such a gift from God in every way and I'm thrilled to meet him and to see who God has created him to be....
I feel VERY BLESSED today!!

Pregnancy Update and Today

Some of you have asked how I'm feeling and how things are going. Thanks for asking and supporting me. I am doing great! I feel good. I have not really been sick this time, like I was the first time around with my son. I did have morning sickness, threw up some, and had terrible heart burn or issues with acid-reflux when I was pregnant with my first. This time I have not thrown up at all or had heart burn. Praise the Lord. I keep saying that it's God's grace and goodness to make this time even easier because I'm not sure how I would keep up w/ my almost two year old if I was sick in the bathroom all of the time. We've still been getting out and going to the park (as you've seen on the blog) and enjoying our high-energy days. I do rest when I can. But I'm enjoying my little guy and I'm enjoying being pregnant with this baby. God is so good. I'll write more, in another post, about the word the Lord has given us for the baby and how He's already teaching us so much.

We are now 14weeks and 5days along. The baby is about the size of and apple or a small orange. We are excited because we have a sonogram TOMORROW!! (An early birthday present for me, as my birthday is later this week.) It's probably too soon to see the gender... just shy of 15 weeks. But I'll update tomorrow.

This is an article off of if you want more info on week 15 of pregnancy:

Clothes beginning to feel a little tight? Feeling less than graceful and a little fuzzy-headed? These are all normal symptoms of pregnancy.

My little guy spend today going in and out of stores with Mommy. He's wearing new shoes (switched from a 7&1/2 to an 8) today. He got his hair trimmed in the front. He got to have Chocolate Milk & loved it! And Daddy brought home a turtle. Then, after dinner, he sat in an empty diaper / cardboard box and watched almost an entire movie... in the box?! That's a BIG DAY for a little guy!

My little man and I have both been fighting getting sick... some kind of cold or sinus infection or something. He might be dealing with a virus. I don't know yet; still watching things. But I'd like to ask for PRAYERS for health and wellness over our family. Thank you for praying. I'll update tomorrow.

Holiday at Home!

We really had nothing planned (other than our great church group pot luck lunch on Sunday) this weekend and we ended up REALLY enjoyed just hanging out at home. Tonight we are grilling out steak (with amazing sauce from Sticky Fingers -- Carolina Sweet) and corn (you leave it in the leaves and soak them in salt water and then grill them in their leaves and it's very yummy) and some squash from my husbands garden!
It's been a great couple of days with our little family!
Here are some pictures from today...
