Words Aren't Enough

There are no words for today's appointment.

Literally, I am speechless - quite a feat for me.

But I just don't have the words to express our absolute. . . enchantment with what our love has created. Sure, we needed the help of thousands of dollars of medical intervention, but really, when you come down to it, it was still just a piece of him and a piece of me.


And the result is too beautiful for me to even comprehend. I don't even know what I have done to deserve this miracle. I am humbled by the great gift that God has bestowed us with. I promise to spend the rest of my life being even somewhat deserving.

As I told the baby today, when I saw it on that ultrasound screen, "I will be the best mommy to you that I possibly can be." May I not let this baby down.

Gorgeous! The 11 / 12 week ultrasounds always give the best pictures. And I always stand in awe at how complete that little human is at this gestation, all at only about 8 cm in length if I remember correctly. (Have you checked how small that is on a ruler!) All the best for the rest of your pregnancy.

This post and photo made me tear up. Everything, all we go through, all the money we drop, all the tears we shed-all of it is so worth it when this is the end result. Continuing to pray for you every day.
