Friday with friends

2 Fridays ago we spent the evening with friends we haven't seen in a while, including Trisha and Bjorn who have been in Hungary as missionaries. Their first baby, Lianna, was born while they were in Hungary so this was the first chance we had to meet her! And she is an angel. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of her before she went to bed. But I did get a picture of Chris and Lauren's precious little boy Austin, who we also met for the first time!

And a picture of the guys. =) Thanks for having us all over, Trisha and Bjorn!

A possible 1st...

Sunday afternoon, Rob and I were sitting on the couch watching Football. And I think I might have felt the baby move for the first time! I felt 3 strong 'flutters' on the lower right side of my abdomen, just a few seconds apart. How fun! Another milestone I thought some of you might enjoy hearing about.

I found this verse the other day in "The Message" and loved the translation...

"Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that."
--Ephesians 5:1, The Message

Moving Right Along

I had another doctor's appointment yesterday - everything is still right on track and progressing well. I heard the baby's heartbeat again, although this time the little one was moving around so much, the doctor had to keep hunting for the heartbeat. It's amazing to me that the baby is moving around that much and I can't feel it yet!

Our next appointment is November 6th, and we have an ultrasound scheduled for that day in order to find out if we're having a boy or a girl!

Thank you for your prayers for us - we are so thankful that the Lord has given us a healthy pregnancy so far.
