Shane and I just celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary in August! We have a 6 year old son, Josiah, a 3 1/2 year old daughter, Meghan and an 8 month old daughter, Aubrey. Our relationship with God drives how we live. We are so thankful for all He provides for us & continues to grow in us daily.

'Are you kidding me? We're having a GIRL?'

We went three days ago to find out if our baby was a boy or girl. I laid there as the ultrasound technician took the sonogram of mine & the babies organs. I wasn't allowed to see the screen yet, so there I laid staring at the ceiling for about 30 minutes. I was praying that God would allow us to get a good look at the babies 'parts' :).

I was preparing myself for her saying 'It's a boy'! Almost all of our friends & family guessed we were having a boy; so I begin to tell myself that as well. The thought of having another boy was actually great. I knew Josiah would have so much fun with a brother; being able to jump off things, crash toy cars & play sports. So I knew I would be excited about a boy as well, if that was the outcome. I didn't realize how much I wanted a girl until people would tell me they thought it was a boy. Something inside of me got irritated a little bit; that's when I knew what my hope was.
So the exam of all my organs was over & I was finally allowed to bring Shane in. The first thing the technician asked us was if we wanted to find out the sex. Of course we said 'Yes'. She went right to that part of the baby & instantly we couldn't see anything in between the legs. We both were thinking in our heads, 'there's nothing in between'!!! I kept waiting for a different angle so I would see the boy part, but it never appeared! She said 'I think it's a girl' (they're not allowed to say 100%). I looked at Shane and said 'Are you kidding me? We're having a GIRL!?' :). We both smiled so big & he said 'I told you'. (He thought it was a girl).I couldn't stop giggling & smiling the rest of the exam. It was so fun to say 'Look at HER arm' or 'SHE'S kicking me' :).
Thank you, God for our little girl. We're so excited to meet her!

The other guy in my life...

This little guy is such a joy in my life!!! Over two years ago I held him in my arms for the first time & my life has never been the same. I couldn't have imagined the instant love I would have for him. Watching him grow up has been so much fun. From a little baby that I just snuggled & helled in my arms, to a silly, playful & gentle little boy. I was nervous to have a boy at first because I didn'tknow what to do with boys. God knew!!! He placed this guy into my life & he's taught me so much. He's taught me to just have fun & let boys be boys. He's taught me that I am not a patient person & need God's help with that. He's taught me that I need to get past myself & spend time with him. The glow I see in his eyes as we play together is priceless. Thank You, God for Josiah!

I'm thankful for my husband!

Shane and I just celebrated our 5 year annivesary! I look back on our life together so far & smile so big :). I'm thankful for my husband! He works so hard each day to provide for his family. He takes time to talk with me, spend time with me & challenge me to grow in Christ. He makes sure we go on regular dates; which I love. I miss him when he's gone & can't wait for him to come home. I love that we play board games & cards together. I love that I married my best friend! Thank you, Shane for following Christ & for investing in our marriage :).

He is an amazing Dad! Josiah & him have the best time together. They play baseball, soccer, basketball, etc. They build 'tunnels' & climb all over them. Josiah lights up & runs to the door when he hears the garage door open; that means Daddy is home from work :). I'm excited to watch their relationship as the years go on. I know that Shane will be someone Josiah looks up to as an example, not only as a man but as a follower of Christ. Shane, thank you for what you give to Josiah with your time, your love & your example. I can't wait to see you with your precious little girl in January. My heart will melt when you hold her in your arms. I love you & am grateful that God placed you in mylife!
