It's A...


Hooray! Our little wildman looks GREAT! Which is SUCH a blessing! 

I can not thank everyone for being so excited for us & with us throughout this awesome journey. It means more than I could ever express to have people all around, both friends & family, who are not only excited but also praying for us.

Everyday my heart is truly overflowing with love and gratitude and awe at what all the Lord has done for us & is doing for us. THANK YOU!!!

We've decided on a name...we think. But, we're still trying to figure out what we're going to call him.


Wow! It's SO AWESOME to be able to FINALLY call this child a him!!!

I knew it was a boy all along but I NEVER called him a" him" because I would have felt horrible if I had been wrong. But I wasn't =)

Now, all of the detailed nursery planning & cute-little-blue-onesie-buying can begin!

Of course, y'all know I cried when I saw that sweet little face on the screen. He is the cutest little man & now I can not wait to see him. To see what he looks like. To see if he has AW's blue eyes or if he's going to have blonde hair like AW did when he was a child.

I can't wait to kiss all over his sweet little face. To touch his nose and to just hold him close. 

The Dr. was so encouraging and said everything looked wonderful and he was really pleased. After our appointment we went & had lunch and AW thanked the Lord for our son by name and prayed for him & there I was crying in Five Guys at Brookwood Mall like a big goober.

Our son.


Wow.....amazing. Life is amazing. The way the Lord works is beyond me. I just have such a spirit of thankfulness lately.

Ok, I'm going to share some pictures & I asked AW if I could share the picture of our wildman's manhood but he said no. But trust me, it's there. The nurse said, "There is no mistaking. That is definitely a boy" hehe.

Here is a profile view of his sweet little face with his nose up & mouth open:

This is another profile view of his sweet face with his little fist under his chin. He really liked that position:

Here's one of his sweet little feet:

I promised myself that after we found out I could buy a little onesie for him but I wouldn't go crazy buying up every blue thing I saw. This is what I got this afternoon (one t-shirt that I couldn't pass up & an adorable fuzzy onesie):

He is a VERY active little boy already. I've been feeling him kick me for about a week or 2 & the U/S tech said he was very active. I don't think he's quite big enough that AW can feel his kicks yet but the Dr. said w/i the next couple of weeks he should!

Wildboy weighs 8ozs. & has a heartbeat of about 170/bpm right now. Thank you for all of your continued support! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!


  1. Yea! You were right!! So excited for you, Andrew and little one.

  2. I love love love this blog!! getting to know every detail is so awesome! I love you so much, and your SON! ahhh! so excited!

    Also.. i meant to tell you a LONG time ago... as I was traveling around Illinois I went through a little town called "LAURA". I prayed for you and Andrew and Wildbaby the whole time I was in that town!

    Can't wait to see you again soon!

    AHH so excited!!

    congrats again! LOVE YOU!

  3. So exciting! One thing that I fing most amazing during the pregnancy process, etc is where God tells us in his word that, "I knew you before I formed you...I called you by name!" So, whatever the name is that you have picked, God has already been calling him by that name! How awesome is that! When Jennifer was pregnant with Corban, and it got to the point where he could hear things in the womb, she would tell me that when I came into the room talking he would move to that side of her belly to listen. It was really cool when I could see him roll to that side.

  4. So happy for you two! Baby fever...:)

  5. Congratulations!! That's so exciting!! Little men are so sweet...they super-duper love their mamas!!
