Let me introduce you to....

Our little miracle! (and I do mean LITTLE:)
Praising the Lord for a strong flickering heartbeat!

Chris has already declared that the baby looks just like him. Can't you just see the resemblance?

After today, Park, on the other hand, voiced some serious concern.

"Mommy, I'm afraid our baby will come out looking like a peanut. Don't worry, I'll still love him, though. And I'll try not to eat him."

What a great big brother he is going to be!

I claimed this verse when I was believing for our baby, so it is especially sweet to read it now, as I turn in for bed.

(And for those of you still waiting for your miracle, I claim it on your behalf tonight.)

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

Psalm 139:13-17

Awww...little peanut! Such a cute first portrait! I am still just so excited for you.

Will you say a little prayer for my sweet Anderson when you get this? It is 4:00am here and I have been up with him for a while. He has horrible croup. His breathing got labored enough for Jeff to decide to take him to the ER. I am so sad because I couldn't go. I had to stay here with Lydia- sometimes dividing up your love for two can be tough (you'll see that soon enough). So here I am waiting on word back about his breathing...he is most likely fine, but you know how it is to be a just worry! Thx!
