Oh Baby!


Kelly and I are going to be parents! Honestly, I have had about two months for this reality to sink in and it still feels surreal. There have been so many emotions-shock and disbelief, joy and excitement, fear and uncertainty. To think that Kelly and I will have a little part of each of us here in another six months is amazing and that doesn’t even begin to describe it. July 4 will forever and always be a special date for more than the obvious reason now, because that’s the day Kelly and I learned that we were going to have a baby. We kept the news a secret until we could make the first doctor visit on the 28th. The weeks have never crept as slowly as they did leading up to that day. The morning of the visit, Kelly and I were so nervous. It was all that we had anticipated and more. I think I can speak for Kelly too when I say that it was love at first sight for the little ‘fuzz ball’ we saw on the screen that morning. We surprised our family with the news that night and needless to say they were and continue to be thrilled! I was thinking a few days ago about how God already knows this baby. He has known and loved this child way before we as its parents ever did. He already has a plan for this little person’s life. There is something so indescribable about knowing that while parents play such an important part in this miracle, it is really quite a small role in the grand scheme of things. In saying that; however, I can tell you that the responsibility He has placed upon Kelly and I to raise this little one according to His will certainly doesn’t seem like such a ‘small’ job right now! Nevertheless, Prov. 3:5-6 is definitely reassuring. So, thanks to those of you who already knew our news and have sent your sweet well wishes and most importantly your prayers! I’m happy to finally share this special time with the rest of you out there in blog land. ;)
