We’re Expecting . . . A Baby!

 IMG_0263

Yes, God has blessed us again with the hopes and dreams of a little baby coming into our lives! 

We (okay, mostly Andrea) are 14 weeks pregnant now, happily over most of the first trimester queasies and uncertainty and into the second trimester of bliss and watching for the baby bump to grow (so we can put all of those cute maternity clothes to use!).

Our due date is in early June, a happy time for an Alaska baby to be born (no blizzard worries or cold car seats—for a while).  We are working with our wonderful midwife and hoping for a home birth this time!  The only hitch is, we’re not exactly sure where “home” will be, as our current housing situation is temporary (you’re welcome to pray about that!)

We’re so thankful that Clara will be a big sister.  She doesn’t really understand what is going on right now, but she is happily involved with her baby dolls and is fascinated by any baby (i.e. child under the age of three) within any distance.

Anyway!  We’re excited to be able to share the good news with you and ask that you’ll keep our little munchkin in your prayers. Thank you!

  5. Congratulations!! I was wondering when this would be coming :) I remember you talking in Moscow about how you'd always dreamed of being a mother and longed to hold a baby in your arms. I am just a little ahead of you with number 5. I am due May 25, but I always go late, so probably some time in June. -Miracle
