After my previous post, Tim and I were watching Lord of the Rings and he turns to me and says, "I never noticed before, but their quivers are REALLY full!" LOL I guess when God has made it clear to you that you are to be "quiver full" when it comes to your family, all these other things start to "pop out" at you!
Speaking of "popping out"... none of that happening here yet. Amazingly at 12+ weeks I am still wearing my non-maternity pants and not using a hair-binder to make them loose enough! Yippee!! I am totally okay with that :)
I had my first visit with the midwife and she was able to hear the baby's heartbeat briefly. I missed it, but I think that's okay. I'd like Tim to come with to my next appointment, and then we can hear it for the first time together :) That will make it much more special!
And, more big news, we've begun the search for a more suitable home! We've been looking and have found a couple we like. We've also been working HARD at getting our house ready to put on the market. Already, several boxes have made their way to Goodwill, and I have at least two more ready to go. It's been really freeing to get rid of so much stuff! And the things we are keeping are getting much more organized :)
So, while it's beginning to seem a bit more spacious around here, we are so grateful for God's provision in our lives that allows us to look for something a bit bigger! Our hope is to go from house with 1 bath, 2 bedrooms and 1 living room, to a home with 2 baths, 4 bedrooms and 2 living spaces... one upstairs, and one down :) Pray for us in this process!
Enough for now :)
