The big announcement!

I'm very excited to announce that we're expecting a baby and are due late February/early March! We just had our first appointment today and were so excited to hear a heartbeat! So far everything looks good and while Jamie has had some of the normal pregnancy "blah," she has been doing really well. We're so thankful for the health that she's had so far.

Thanks to those of you who are and will be praying for us. We praise God for His mercy to us so far and pray for wisdom as we learn how to take on our new role as parents!

Speaking of that know how every parent thinks they'll be perfect? They've watched their friends, parents, and relatives and they've got it all down to an exact science. They know exactly what they will and especially what they WON'T do! Well, that's us. So please be patient with us as we (mostly I) rant about the right and wrong way to parent...we'll learn - very quickly, I'm sure, but we'll learn! :)

Oh, and the most common question we're asked is if we're going to find out whether it's a boy or a girl. To save ourselves from having to answer that question more times than we have already, the answer is no, we do not plan on finding out the gender. We will all get to be surprised!

Even though it's your first, you've had quite a bit of second hand (and often first hand) experience. I think you'll be the role model parents for your generation.

I'm so glad the news is out, now I can gush!

Battle plans never survive first contact with the enemy. Take every word of that sentence literally.

Wow Mom, thanks for the vote of confidence. Role model for our generation sounds like a bit of an overstatement at this point, but coming from you it's gotta mean something! :)

Anna, that sentence, "oh how your life is going to change," is one that has been repeated more times than I can count. I'm starting to think there must be truth to it! :)

Jeff, I don't know whether to write that down and commit it to memory or laugh. I think I'll do both.

Congratulations you two! I've been waiting for this announcement--woo-hoo!!!

You guys will make great parents, partly because of your maturity and experience, but mostly because your eyes are on Jesus.

One of the best things being a parent has done for me, though, is to show me how imperfect I am. All the ways and places I need God's grace. I think you will find the same. :)

Thank you for the encouragement Kara Jo. It really is humbling to have the vote of confidence, but you're right, the only way we'll be halfway successful is if we're rooted in Christ!
