First Signs of the Pooch

Russell is so excited to see "Junior" poking out! We're finishing up week 16, and I feel great! The baby's definitely had a growth spirt this week, as I've been hungrier and am now 'showing.'
Darby, this picture is for you, from me & Russell! ;)

We're excited to celebrate our one-year anniversary on Monday week, August 25th! A few weeks ago, while Russell was still at his 3-week annual training, I was praying toward our anniversary, asking that the Lord would lay on my heart something that we could do in celebration of our first year together that would be meaningful (and not sappy :)) to both Russell and myself. The Lord gave me the great idea of calling my doctor to see if we could go in on that day to find out the gender of our baby and celebrate that!! I shared the idea with Russell, which excited him, so I called our doctor, and he is great with us coming for an ultrasound!

So, Lord willing and the baby 'cooperates' :), we'll be finding out if we're having a girl or a boy on August 25th!

May the Lord continue to prepare our hearts for HIS will!
