Much to the objections of my mother, the rumors are all true (although I'm assuming that everyone who reads my blog already knows)...


It is a "surprise" baby, not an "accident"...we are being very intentional to thank God for His plan, even though it DID NOT match up with ours! He knows better, so we are choosing to be nothing but excited about this little blessing.

So far, it's been pretty eventful. I've been sick as a dog for about a month, and yet eating everything I can get my hands on!

I have my first ultrasound on the 10th, so hopefully I can post a picture and you guys can see my little cm long munchkin!

I'm feeling a little better today...I think it was the ice cream that did the trick ;)

The big question right now (and you guys tell me what you think) is, should we find out the sex of the baby? I know we've got several weeks before that's even an option, but I'm not sure if I want to know!

I know it makes buying baby stuff and baby showers easier if you know, but I think for once, I might like to be surprised... tell me your stories and whether or not you found out, and if you were happy about finding out!

(This passage just found a new meaning for me)

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

My opinion. You're only choosing which day to be surprised. I always thought earlier was better.

Yea! Congratulations.

We didn't find out early and, of course, we loved it that way. It'll be fun no matter what you decide!

I was going to make a comment, but I think I'll blog about this instead. :o)
