{Hope Unswervingly} Baby #4!

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful"
Hebrews 10:23

We are beyond excited to share that we are adding to this little family of ours!
Baby #4 is due March 6th 2015. I'm about 15 1/2 weeks along and it's been an uneventful, boring pregnancy just like I prayed for :) I am growing super fast and started showing early. I literally don't recognize my body each time I look in the mirror but I'm totally ok with that. I spent week 6 to 11 in what felt like hibernation...basically just sleeping and eating. Looking back now, in the middle of our currently busy lives, I'm so thankful I was able to do that. It was truly God's grace the way it all happened and in the time that it did. I feel like I was able to just rest and let my body grow this baby. I was really sick for those weeks but not one day passed that I didn't whisper the words "Thank you Lord for this healthy baby"

Bella kisses my tummy multiple times a day. Asher has taken on a whole new level of protectiveness over me...like insisting on pushing the cart when we go grocery shopping. I think it's beyond cute. Mia on the other hand has taken on a whole new level of clinginess. She's always been the baby, so talk of a new baby is apparently making her want to stake her claim for a little bit longer.
Brandon has been amazing as always. Picking up the slack wherever he can, running to the store for me at all hours..I think we all just feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude for this little baby and we don't take it for granted one bit. I'm thankful that although December was hard for all of us, it taught our kids the value for new life and how precious it is. 

I know many of you have followed our story from the beginning. Thank you for walking with us through it all. I can't wait to keep sharing this journey with you.

And if you are holding on to hope for something....don't let go.
He is faithful.
