It's a....

We had our big ultrasound today. It was so fun. We all cheered! My sweet friend, Jamie is in town and she got to go with Chad and me, along with Anna Kate. Jamie is a week further along in her pregnancy than I am and she and Dustin are not going to find out what they are having! It was so special to have her with us at this appointment.
The doctor says everything looks great. All the parts are there and everything is working great. We are so, so thankful. I loved the doctor who did my ultrasound. He was so informative and patiently answered all of my questions. Such a fun day!
Here are some of the pictures that we got. It was just so amazing to sit and watch that baby wiggle, seeing every toe, finger, both ears, tiny knees and elbows, arm and leg bones...just amazing. I don't think as many kids as I have that I will ever get over it.

Here's her sweet face. Her tiny arm is up next to her ear.

Here's a profile shot.

Here's another little view of the face.

And a tiny foot. So sweet.

Ten Years

Ten years ago Chad and I were married. Wow. Has it been that long? Some days it seems like it's only been a few years. Other days it feels like I could ask, "Has it only been 10 years?"

We've packed a lot into 10 years. They've been filled with overwhelming joy and overwhelming grief. Through all of it God has been oh-so gracious to us and I'm blessed to have been by Chad's side the whole way.
