Do I Look Pregnant Yet?

The top picture is at McKinney Falls, TX this past Saturday. We are almost 27weeks!
This one was last week at the wedding of Brenton and Cara Dowdy. We were just almost 26 weeks here!

I am feeling Benjamin kick all the time now. He's quite the little gymnast in there...sometimes we can watch my belly pop and move as he rolls and somersaults around! What a great feeling--if anything was ever to be described as indescribable, that would be it. I can't explain what it feels like...it feels like exactly what it is...a tiny person rolling, flipping, and kicking inside of me.

Needless to say, we're having a wonderful time right now. Everything is going great with the pregnancy and I'm feeling good (if a little tired). But in our joy, we do not forget to share the sorrows of others. Today we found out that my co-teacher's sister lost her little one to miscarriage at 8 weeks gestation. For those of you who have experienced it...you know. For those who have not, I could hardly explain the grief and fear. It is not just the loss of a life, but the loss of so many hopes. Please pray for Robin and her family during this season and remember all who are facing a difficult holiday time. We are so thankful for the prayers that carried us through last year at this time and for the prayers that still keep us in good spirits and in good health.

You are incredibly cute, my dear. You certainly have that "pregnant glow"!! :)

How fun that little Brokaw is kicking all over the place. That really is a fun stage, isn't it? You will find that as a mother, you are starting to learn about your baby before you can even see him. You will instinctively know things about him once he's born, because you are getting to know him while he's kicking away at your inner organs!! :)

Blessings on you and yours!
