A single-momma's Ethiopian adoption blog... that became a married couple's pregnancy blog... that became a mostly-stay-at-home RN-Momma's orphan care blog. Who knows what's next?

Because my sister won't stop harassing me to post a picture of my bump, I am giving you the 2 pictures that exist of said bump. Both taken by yours truly on my iPhone while wearing old PJs in the dimly-lit bathroom at my in-law's house (read: high quality photographs, people.)
Photo One: 14 weeks (taken Saturday, May 1)
I could tell there was something there, and promptly sent it off to my hubby in a text message, since he was half a country away. I think the kids have a name for those provocative text messages...? (that was a joke.)
Photo Two: 15 weeks (taken Saturday, May 8)
I will admit, the noticeable difference in bump size really got me excited. Along with the news I received earlier in the week that I had only gained half a pound in 4 weeks. Although, in scrubs, you still can't tell anything is there. Which is okay, I guess. I'm sure I will be waddling around soon enough.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
