It's A....










Psalm 139:13-16

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.

We went for the 20 week ultrasound and are thrilled to say everything looked great and our little girl is growing and moving around well. It was amazing to see her little fingers and toes moving around. Nana came prepared with two signs, one for a girl and one for a boy. As you can see, we used the girl sign because we are having a girl! Holly has been convinced all along that she is having a sister so she was ecstatic when we told her it really was a sister. When we were leaving, she looked a little disappointed and asked, "When are they going to take the baby out?" She thought we were going to get to really see the baby today, poor thing. It is a long time to wait. But if the next 20 weeks go as fast as the first 20 then it will be here in no time.

We are so thankful for this little growing baby and cannot wait to meet her!

And Allen can look forward to many more tea parties and playing like this:

Isaiah 40;11 "He tends his flock like a sheperd;He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart:he gently leads those that have young" I love the scripture you chose Gillian.David had to memorize that when he was in fourth grade and so I also had to memorize it.The miracle of life is truly awesome.I cant wait to see how God is going to use this sweet little girl. I have fallen in love with her already."This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it"We love you all dearly.love from O.M.B.

Wow, wow, wow! Just heard the news (or read the news, I guess...). So very, very thankful. Your most recent post was beautifully written, too, Gill, and was a reminder that I needed today to be joyful with my babies today, regardless of our circumstances (mine feel a little hard right now). Love to all of you!
