And BABY makes FOUR!!!

Yep, you guessed it!! The other thing I didn't mention about Ruthie turning 13 months is that she is going to be a big sister!!! Here's a picture to prove it!



Sorry for the bad lighting, but if you've ever seen an ultrasound at 8 weeks, you know they all pretty much look like the same little blob!! But, the baby's heartbeat is strong and steady at 174 beats per minute! I've waited a little while to put this up on the blog (my family and church family has known for several weeks) because we've been going through a little. To make a long story short... at about 5 weeks they thought I might be having problems with the pregnancy. So they did some extra ultrasounds and some blood work and found out that my numbers were sky high. A few more ultrasounds later and they told us we were having twins. However, it was still early and there were no heartbeats yet. We were told to wait 2 weeks and come back to see if both babies were healthy.

Sadly, when we went back, there was only one heartbeat. So, little baby B went to be with Jesus. We know that God's plan is perfect and He is soverign. The Lord is to be praised when He gives and when He takes away. For us, it happened that He did both at the same time. I wasn't going to blog about the twin thing but I decided to for a couple of reasons. One, I wanted to celebrate the little life that went to be with Jesus. Two, I wanted to bring Glory to God for what He is doing in our lives and our hearts. Together, trusting the Lord and His perfect plan, Tony and I want to always Praise the name of our Lord.

So we are SUPER EXCITED about our new addition and have already started to make plans about our little bundle and the changes that will be made in our house to accommodate another one! We are due April 3 but will have a planned C-section so I'll let you know what date that is when I know!! And for now, please pray for the little life growing inside of me. Stay tuned for more updates on the Little Bitty.

Our God is so sovereign Teresa. I just had to keep telling myself that after I only retained one of the two babies I carried for John and Alyse. Always remember that EVERYTHING He does is for His glory and for our good. He loves you so very much...and this new blessing is awesome proof.

I am feeling well... the expected tiredness and some tummy trouble... but thankfully not much in that department! Ruthie keeps me going so I don't dwell on my tiredness for too long!! :)
