...counting Samford, of course!
We saw the sweetest sight today: our baby's heart beating on an ultrasound. That's right, someone special is due to arrive on August 29 and we are so thankful!
We are thankful for so many reasons. Most people don't know that we've been battling through infertility for a little over a year now. While that pales in comparison to what others have been/are going through, it felt like an eternity to us. But Peanut arrived at what we now see as perfect timing. There truly is a season for all things and I am thankful that the Lord ordains those seasons and not me. This is also my excuse for disappearing from the Blog World for awhile. It's pretty obvious that this is not a healthy environment for someone who is longing and pleading for a child! But we have been so thankful for our friends who have been blessed with babies, and in turn have hurt and continue to carry the burden with those who are waiting and praying.
We have no inclinations as to what we will be having yet (although I'm pretty professional at guessing others' babies' genders!) but the nursery is already blue and it's not changing, so according to Murphy's law it will be a girl. :)
Poor Samford has no idea how drastically his life is about to change...
