Happy Heart's Day From My Little Loves

(Today is a super special day, because February 10th is the day that my husband and I met 5 years ago!  I'll never forget the big smile he had when he greeted me in the atrium of his church, after I made a very nervous drive from Cincinnati to Louisville.  I will forever be thankful for that life-changing day, when God answered a prayer I had prayed for many years.  I love you Kevin!)

In honor of "love month" Selah and I did a little photo shoot a couple weeks ago.  It was quite a workout for mommy and baby, but we got some cute ones.  The first one is what we sent to our families last week...



This was what the photo shoot really looked like most of the time.


"Baby sister?"

And yes, our little Lovebug's name is Zoe!  This is a name I have loved for a long time, and I will dedicate a whole post to more of the story behind it soon, but below is part of what I wrote on the back of the card we sent with the photo to our families.  We are praying so intensely for this little one, and are just so excited to meet her and have our girls together!

"We are naming our new baby girl Zoe!  We have both prayed over and love this name, and have chosen it because it means "life."  John 10:10 says that there is one who seeks to steal and destroy, but Jesus came so we "may have life and have it to the full."  In New Testament Greek this abundant and eternal life is translated "zoe."  We rejoice over our little one's new life and pray she shares this message with many.  We can't wait to meet her!  Thank you for your continued prayers for a healthy baby and safe delivery at just the right time."

Speaking of Jesus and love, here's my favorite song about both right now....
