Our newest miracle...

Want to see??!!

We got our first real peek at our growing baby GIRL!   (I am not counting the first two ultrasounds I had early in my 1st trimester - the first ultrasound had a barely-detectable fetus speck for a baby, and the second one showed a blurry blob without distinguishing characteristics.)  

This morning we enjoyed about 45 minutes of watching our sweet girl move around and suck her thumb while the technician measured her tiny body.  We are so thankful that our girl appears to be healthy and growing right on schedule.  She's quite a squirmer - I have been feeling her little flutters of movement for several weeks now, and love feeling her kicks as she gets progressively stronger.  

Your prayers for us and our family have been felt and answered - and we are celebrating this new little one that will join our family in July (or late June, if she follows in her brother's footsteps and decides to come early).  Please continue to pray for our daughter's healthy growth and development if you think of us!
