I Get To Be The One

We are so excited to officially announce the sweet new baby growing in my belly!!  We are 14 weeks today, and we're due April 11.  Kevin and I love being parents, and are thrilled and thankful that our family is growing.  We've prayed for many months for the perfect timing of this sweet one, and I just can't wait to meet this uniquely created baby, perfectly planned by our loving heavenly Father.


Having "two kids" has already proved to add some crazy to my life.  Much like pregnancy number one, I have been seriously sick...actually worse in some ways this time around.  And I'm super duper tired.  Of course, I hate to focus on the crummies, as we are beyond thrilled and grateful, and don't for a moment want to take this sweet one for granted.  (Though I've had my fair share of days where I've struggled to stay positive)  And I know by Thanksgiving I should (hopefully) be feeling awesome!

A few weeks before Selah's birthday, before we had revealed the news to anyone, my brother and his sweet girlfriend introduced me to a JJ Heller song that fits my feelings perfectly.  I can already hardly wait to hold and snuggle this new sweet one.  It truly brings me to tears to think that I get to be the one to love on these incredible children.  Thank you God for this amazing gift!

"How does someone so small hold my heart so tightly;  I don't even know you, but I love you completely."

Sending you many, many congratulations! What blessed news!! That song is beautiful and made me teary eyed, too! Being a Mother is just pure joy, and like you, I am just feeling overwhelmed with happiness and can't wait to hold baby number 2! I have been thinking about how amazing it is that God can double the size of our heart with the addition of a second child. Congratulations again!
