27 weeks and an update.

Yesterday marked 27 weeks in this pregnancy!
*Next Wednesday I will officially begin my 3rd and final trimester.
*Just by looking at these pictures, you can see the toll that sickness has taken on me the last few days...

*I didn't throw up again after Monday night but today is the first day I haven't felt completely nauseous since. It was a terrible feeling to be so sick and it was the first time ever that I haven't really been able to care for the babies.
It is moments like these when I am grateful God has allowed us to be home with our families during these crucial years of raising babies! It truly takes a village some days.

*This week I lost 6 pounds from being sick, putting me at gaining a total of 27 pounds so far.
That is a pound a week!

* I made an appointment for us to have a 4-D sonogram done on Aunt Jeni's birthday (May 12th). We are all so excited to see this little girl!

* Yes, I airbrushed this picture so my stretch marks don't look so bad.
(and last week's too.)
* Daniel saw me last night and said, "Wow,'re gettin a little tight in there..." and he's right. I feel like my skin is stretching so tightly around this baby.

* She's a mover and a shaker! She is getting strong everyday and I love her patterns.

* Besides being sick, I'm still feeling pretty good overall.

Here's a picture of Nora with my friend Lindsay's new baby, Chloe--
And speaking of new babies...
Aunt Rachel is at the hospital in active labor as we speak! Baby Harper should be here sometime tonight and I'll update as soon as I know something. It has been a rough day for me. All I want is to be with her and knowing that I can't be is so hard. However, I know that the Lord is there and He's got it covered. She has a wonderful husband (who will be a fantastic daddy) and a great mother for support. It's just so hard being so far away.
Any prayers for a healthy delivery, and a healthy mom & baby would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
Harper's story and testimony are already so great. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for this precious girl!!!

Nora told me that she saw an angel out of my bedroom window 3 days ago. She was "old" with "red hair." And she had wings!
Nora announced to daddy & I today that,
"Jesus is God."

So grateful for hearts and minds that are receptive of Jesus and His love for us! Thank you Lord!

Do you think that angel was your nanna?
