18 weeks

I know I haven't blogged in awhile, sorry. I have no excuse. Here are a couple pictures of my growing tummy, I don't feel like it "looks" much bigger than my last picture, but it definitely "feels" bigger.
Ben thought he was really funny and a great photographer taking candid shots!

Ben was traveling all last week and again this week. He was in California last week and he is in Mexico City, actually Leon, Mexico this week. He is having quite the time traveling! He said when he got off the plane in Mexico there were big guys with machine guns all over! Just what an expecting wife wants to hear, then he goes on to tell me that his ride didn't show up at the airport. He waited as long as he could, but then the airport was closing so he had to find a cab, which of course the driver spoke no English. And Ben is definitely not fluent in Spanish so thankfully he had written down the hotel address the day before and he gave it to the driver. He received a "Si" back! Ben said once he got to his hotel, after a 30 min. cab ride, that he felt comfortable and safe. Praise the Lord. He is really enjoying all the authentic Mexican food, all I can say is I am glad I don't have to share a bed with him after all those beans!!! It is a really great experience for him, but I will definitely be ready to have him home on Friday!

We hope you all are enjoying the first week of spring! We love you and miss you all!

“Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea." Job 11:7-9

15 weeks

Here I am at 15 weeks, which is already a few days old. I probably won't put pictures up every week, but I had said I would put an updated one on so here you are! Now keep in mind I had just eaten a BIG supper, I am not that big when I roll out of bed in the morning! :)

Have a wonderful weekend! We love you and miss you all!

Not only is this my favorite verse but God has put it on my heart all week, so I had to put in on here even though I think I have used it already! Especially the "anxious" part. My doctor told me today that the anxieties have just begun and they don't get any better after the baby is in the world!:) Oh Great! I completely agree and understand, but I do know that God can calm those anxieties and replace them with his love and joy, so that is what I continue to pray for throughout our pregnancy! So, if any of you want to pray that for me I would absolutely LOVE it! Thanks much :) :)
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-8
