Rhys is growing alright, and Mommy feels great! I had my first conversation with Rhys yesterday, as I was driving home from the grocery store. It went something like this..."Rhys, Mommy loves you. The Lord loves you! Daddy loves you! Gosh, I'm a Mommy! You're going to be my first baby! Wow!" I got kind of teary eyed by this point. It was just a sweet moment between Mommy and son.
I felt him kicking for the first time on Wednesday! It was about 5am, and I was reading my Bible study for the day out of Isaiah 1. What sweet and perfect timing! I so wanted to share with Russell that experience of feeling Rhys kick! Thursday morning, I slept in, and about 6:30, I felt the little kicks again! I quickly told Russell, so he put his hand on my tummy and felt three little kicks for himself! Yeah!! "Thank you, Lord!!" What an amazing and sweet experience!
"Keep growing, little guy! Daddy and Mommy continue to pray for your spiritual and physical well-being, as we look forward to meeting you this coming winter!! We love you very much!"
