to share how we told our parents about baby #3. ; ) Jason and I always try to come up with little creative ways to tell our parents that I am pregnant. This time I wanted to tell them without saying a word. To sit back and watch their reactions. So...when we went home for Thanksgiving, we mixed in these three pictures with some from Zach's birthday party. It was completely natural to hand them some pictures to flip through.
I was so nervous! My heart was beating so fast. We loved doing this, and our parents' faces were priceless. Their expressions went from confused to shocked to "are they telling me what I think they are..." to happiness and tears. It worked out perfectly.

Thanks for the ideas about a baby doppler monitor. Shannon is letting me borrow hers, so I feel much better already. She tried it out on me the other night looking all professional. It was too funny. I had forgotten she had one. ; )
Thank you also for asking how I am feeling. Very good now, just have the usual food cravings and aversions. With Zach I was sick from week six to nine exactly. With Reese I was sick for two months. This pregnancy I was sick from week six to week nine to the day again! This is why I have a hunch it's a boy, but who knows!?
I am so thankful for the support and love we receive from our friends who we have never met but read our blog. I wish I had the time to hide away and respond to each comment, but I simply cannot. Why can't I be two people sometimes!? I love to pop in on several of your blogs to see what you're up to, I just may not comment. Please know I read each of your comments (many several times) and am always so deeply touched. I'm thinking these past few years my main love language has been "Words," so your Godly and sweet words refresh my heart and soul.
I've been joking with Jason that people have to be sick of praying for us! I've said and felt this countless times, but never in our lives have we ever been so carried by your prayers than the last nine months. Of course we've never needed them this desperately. Thank you for allowing GOD to bless us through your faithfulness and thoughtfulness.
At least the topics of your prayers are changing. ; )
Seek the LORD while He may be found; call to Him while He is near.
