20 Weeks - Half way there!

Kristina: We have officially concluded 20 weeks of pregnancy and are half way to our October 11th deadline! I had another dr. appointment last week and got to hear the little guy's heartbeat again.... boy, is he squirmy! But I look forward to that sound every month. I can feel him moving quite frequently and have been feeling his little kicks. Perhaps he's already practicing to impress his daddy with his soccer skills!

We celebrated Jeff's 35th birthday this past week! God had to remind me that no matter how hard I try, I just will never be a good cook! It was a poke to the eye after I had spent 3 hours in the kitchen and nothing went right. But we had some good laughs about it. And I won't be cooking next year... that's for sure! (FYI, I do have a few good meals that I can cook... I'm not ALL bad!)

Jeff: Where's the nearest McDonalds?

Kristina: Hardy har har... ANYHOOOOO... moving along... we had a HUGE answer to prayer this week as we found a new tenant for the house we used to live in. We were very unsure how we'd be affected by the tragedy that occurred at the house w/ our previous tenant. Although legally we didn't have to disclose what happened, we felt it was the right thing to do even though it might bring us some challenges. We had two potential interests that we never heard back from once we shared the information with them. This left us feeling nervous & unsure about how long this process might actually take. A few days later, we had two more potentials who were still interested after we told them. We're not sure how we, ourselves, would've responded had we been "the tenant" so we are very grateful that God provided this person for us, one who we feel extremely comfortable & confident with moving forward. PHEW!!

For you Americans, we hope you've enjoyed the long weekend! :-) We ask for your continued prayers (U.S. and Canadian please) for the health of our pregnancy. And as promised, here are a few more photos! I'll try and make them more colorful next time! xoxoxo



Kristina: Okay, so I've been called "busty" and it's been requested that I wear a more "fitted" top to show the belly. Sooooooooooo... thanks for the feedback (I think! :) and the pictures that were previously posted have gone bye bye. I will try to take some over this coming weekend... I'll see what I can find in the "dressing room" for something a little more loose up top and a little more snug at the bottom. But to give you an idea of how I feel and look, the gal on the left pretty much sums it up!


We're having a . . . !!!

Kristina: Well... I am 18 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I feel amazingly great. Minus the constant pregnancy sniffles, a few aches & pains, and some extra added "fluffiness", I have so far felt really well!

We experienced today what we both described as the most amazing day of our lives! We had our 2nd ultrasound today and received the wonderful news that so far, our baby contains all the right ingredients for a healthy baby boy! We are overjoyed! Everything looked to be as it should and we are so thankful for this 7 inch, 7 ounce miracle!

Since I have been repeatedly asked for photos of my expanding mid-section, we have finally replaced our broken camera and are granting these wishes! (now leave me alone! :)

We will soon upload photos of our ultrasound for your viewing pleasure and we ask for your continued prayers! We'll be in touch again soon and send our love to you all. XOXO
