Our family is about to grow to three!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. - Psalm 139:13
I can't believe there's a baby in my tummy...
I've been dying to share this news with all of you. I'm officially 13 weeks today. And so far, little Baby Baker has a strong heartbeat and we pray that continues. Our prayer is for this child to grow healthy and strong and for this pregnancy to be an easy one. (and so far, it has been!) I am showing quite a bit, but I've decided it's because I'm short and it has no where to go.
Poor Stephen. I subjected him to this photo shoot. Complete with props. He's such a good sport though. Look at him.
A neighbor came over and asked what in the world we were doing. Ha. "Just working on a blog announcement." I don't think he understood why there were flags, an owl and a lantern involved.
But you people know. Because it's fun and silly and... fun.
(PS- the owl is from my sweet Sasha. I love owls... and it's so soft and perfect for little Baby Baker! Love it!)
I made this little baby book to document little things about the pregnancy, to write little updates to the baby, and to keep the sweet cards we've received in. I've enjoyed making little notes and can't wait to show the baby all that went on while it was growing in my tummy!
This baby could not be more loved all ready. We are busy making plans to get ready for the baby and can't wait until we find out if we're having a little baby boy Baker or baby girl Baker.
Only the Lord knows at this point. But in 4 weeks, we'll find out!
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; - Jeremiah 1:5
Our prayer for this child is just that. That they will know that they have been set apart. This child was known long before it was a thought in our mind. This child's life is going to have great meaning and purpose and most importantly, they will grow to know and love the Lord.
We covet your prayers and will keep you updated with the latest!
Excited seems to be an understatement, but we are SO EXCITED!
