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


  1. You, my dear, are so very cute with that little babe! yowza's.
    Let's chat soon so I can hear what you have been up too. Try to stay out of trouble while Ben is away :)

  2. Hi Amanda-
    I just wanted to drop a quick note of congratulations to you and Ben!! Scotty and I were so excited when we heard! You are looking darn cute with that little baby bump, and I hope you are feeling well. Hopefully we will see you guys sometime soon, we always seem to miss each other when we are in Minnesota. Blessings to you!

  3. So glad Ben made his way throughout Mexico safely! He'll have to share the differences between the authentic Mexican he ate vs. Chihuahas!

    Thanks for the photo update! Continuing to pray for your baby :)
