Our September {Baby Love}

Yesterday Aaron and I went to my first OB with our little September blessing.  I was pretty anxious about it since I had been experiencing some symptoms that made me nervous. So you can imagine my great delight at seeing our precious little baby and his/her little beating heart.  It was so amazing to see and made this pregnancy seem much more's always nice to realize that the morning (all-day) sickness and exhaustion is for a good reason!

Each time I'm pregnant with a new baby I get amazed all over again at how wonderful God's design is for human life.  Our little baby, at only 7mm long, already has a heart, that's pumping blood through tiny little veins...incredible!  We could see his/her little spine too on the sono...can you believe it?!!  Life is truly a miracle and a blessing from God.  You cannot doubt His handiwork when you're face to face with one of His purest miracles.

Our due date is September 26th, although with my past history we'll be extremely surprised if I make it that far...although I'd love to make it to term!  As long as we make it to September we'll be golden!  ;-)   

Here is our sweet little Baby Love.  7 weeks along and unmistakably a most precious miracle of God. 

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,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand
    when I awake, I am still with you.
-PSALM 139:13-18

***I want to acknowledge that while I am feeling extreme joy at our happy news there are other women right now feeling intense loss.  My heart goes out to you all, and I know that the only comfort to be found is in God.  I hope you feel His arms around you.***

Blessings, Grace

Oh, what a precious joy to know about and now "see"!! Praising God with you as the true Life Giver.

I am so looking forward to going through this journey with you all. I was delighted yesterday as I looked into the big, dark, beautiful eyes of J. and E. to know that another little Aldape is on its way. Precious big brothers indeed. And God has heard their prayers.................

Sweet. You and Audra's due dates were two days apart :)
It will be neat to watch you grow and remember her sweet baby along the way. I love that God works in all our lives the way He does. Love you.
