A Special Gift - A New Baby!

This birthday has been so lovely.  As a tradition, I've basically been celebrating all week long...with family, friends, thoughtful gifts, and delicious desserts.  I love birthdays and I'm definitely not shy about being excited for turning a year older!  Am I crazy?  

Older means more experiences. Older means more memories, more friends, more things to be grateful for.  Older means more life lived, and what a privilege that is! 

The best gift this year....
Well it was a hard decision because I've got some seriously thoughtful friends and family members.  And John also brought me home a bouquet of tulips and a 3 pound chocolate peanut butter pie.  So yeah, it was hard to choose.   But here it is....




The most special gift of all...


That's right.  
We are having a baby!  
We are so overjoyed, and I have been an emotional wreck crying tears of joy and unbelief at the drop of a hat.  It's the biggest blessing and to say we are excited is a huge understatement.  
The part that gets me all mushy is that we will be giving Andrew a sibling - something I've daydreamed about since the day he was born.  They'll be 22 months apart, and hopefully the best of friends, the thickest of thieves.

Thank y'all for being so sweet and supportive as I took a big ole hiatus with the blog the past few months.  I have been sick as a dog, and only now am I feeling like I can look at the computer screen without losing my lunch..err breakfast...err anything at any time because my "morning sickness" has been more of an "all-day sickness".  I'm 15 weeks today, so hopefully the nausea train is leaving the station, and leaving me on the platform, waving enthusiastically with a grateful grin on my face.


So YAY!
The greatest birthday gift ever!  God is Good!
