The Beauty of Life

Ironically after months of wanting another baby, I was not immediately excited about being pregnant again.

I had just started to truly get my body back - not just prepregnant body, but my premarried-life body.  Sure it was still a work in progress, but it was getting there.

Also, Kaylee is very independent now. Sure we still do diaper changes and feedings, but overall she plays and does things by herself throughout the day.

The thought of breastfeeding again makes me want to vomit.  I know it may be easier this time around, but it is not something I look forward to doing again. Ever.

All of my reasons, I know, are selfish.

Then, I had my first ultrasound.

Let me just say there is nothing more beautiful than seeing a tiny little baby inside of your tummy and hearing it's heartbeat. 

Tears come to my eyes.

The overwhelming joy, love, and gratefulness envelope me.

The excitement takes over.

I see this pregnancy with fresh eyes and heart and praise God for allowing me to carry something so beautiful for Him.

Please let me share a small part of my experience with you.

Joyful Moment of the Day: I won one of my favorite games today.  Beat the three other guys I was playing with.  Feels good.


  1. Awwwww. LOVE the video. It's kind of like I got to be there:) And Adam's excited voice made me cry. I am SO excited for you.
    And P.S. I wish I could encourage you about the breastfeeding thing. But I can't. Sorry friend.

  2. Oh I can see such cuteness in that video. It truly is a miracle. Hope you don't mind my reading your blog. Love you.

  3. Oh my, how exciting! Took me back to when I first heard Olivia's heartbeat:) So happy for you guys!
