Pregnancy So Far ...

I cannot even begin to explain how much I have enjoyed being pregnant!

I still have "pinch me" moments.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't praise GOD for HIS wonderful blessings, because we have been praying for this day for so long.

Except, we only prayed to have one baby.

HE gave us two - a sweet boy and a girl

My pregnancy has been mainly good, and I don't take that for granted.

I know that many of you have been sick throughout your pregnancy or are waiting for the day to be in our shoes.

For those of you still waiting on GOD's blessings, you are in our daily prayers and it is our hope that it will happen for you very soon!


I have not always enjoyed the pregnancy symptoms, but I have loved being pregnant.

Even the heartburn which has made me have to give up my love of spicy food.

Even the nausea and the food aversions in the first trimester.

Even the natural heat that exudes from my body and turning my husband into George Banks.

Even the need to head to the nearest bathroom all day long.

For all this means that I am expecting.

Early on, when I would talk to Ken about my symptoms, he would just laugh and say, "How awesome!"

I have enjoyed watching this belly grow, even though I haven't done a great job documenting it through pictures. 

I love the many faces my belly button gives me throughout the day. It cracks me up.

I love watching my belly make waves from these little movers and shakers. This is most fun during church. People just think we are doing a lot of praying with smiles on our faces.

I love the early morning dance parties, even it means no sleep for mama.

 I love watching Ken's face light up at feeling all that movement, especially when they kick him in the back at night. He even listened to Selah's hiccups the other day, and can testify that Wesley is going to be a strong little boy. 

I am amazed at the amount of pillows that I have in order to try to have a good night's sleep despite having a child on either side of my ribs, punching or kicking me when I try to lay on my side. 

During the December heat wave, I was taking a walk with the rest of the family. I had on the husband's t-shirt, my yoga pants were flooding, and I was carrying a bag of oranges to deliver to a neighbor. 

Oh what a sight!

And then there is the occasional flair up of crazy.  


I appreciate my husband giving me the look that affirms that I may be crazy, but he is not going to go there.

I also appreciate all the meals that he has made, the house cleanings that he has done, and the encouragement that he gives.

I am trying to soak in every minute and praise GOD for all that HE has blessed us with.

31 weeks down and just a few to go.

Until then, I will be washing, folding, and smiling as we get prepared for the sweet arrival of our babies. 



  1. I'm so glad you are loving it. Pregnancy & children are such a blessing! I could do without the nausea but that's just part of it to get the babies so I'll take it!!

  2. LOVE this!! And even though I only have one little one inside me, she finds it quite amusing to always go to the side I'm laying on and play while I'm sleeping. Terry said, you better get off of her!! I told him, she's the one who goes to that side, so apparently she likes it! I can't wait to meet these two precious little ones you are growing. NOT MUCH LONGER!!!


Thank you for visiting! We love hearing from you!
