Harrison and I decided that since he will be graduating in June, that we would begin to start trying to have a baby. This may have had something to do with the many days we were with Karland (our niece) over Christmas. We have been ready to have a family for a while now, but wanted to make sure that Harrison was done with school. We know the timing was never going to be perfect, but it just made sense to wait (to us...not our parents - j/k). Harrison and I kept having conversations about how it could take a while and we need to not get our hopes up each month. I just didn't want to be disappointed every month. We knew that whenever the timing was right, we would get pregnant. Well, come to find out...it didn't take long at all. We got pregnant the first month that we were trying! I think we are still in shock. It's hard to believe that there is a baby growing in me. We can't wait to see this beautiful creation that God has blessed us with. I am only 5 weeks, so I haven't seen the doctor yet. In three more weeks, we will go and hear the heartbeat.
Father, thank you for blessing us with this child. We pray that you keep the baby healthy and growing properly. We also pray for me to make it through this pregnancy with little sickness. We pray that we can raise this child in You, the way our parents did with us! We love you! AMEN
