It's a Boy!!

This week has been very busy for our little household.

The big news is that we found out we are having a little BOY!  We are absolutely thrilled!  I didn't even give the ultrasound tech time to tell us, I knew right away.  Let's just say that he was not shy :)  It is so neat to know that our name will be passed on through this little man and he is not even here yet.  We are right at the halfway point and the doctor says everything looks perfect.  Thank you Jesus!

Next on the weekly schedule, our daughter, Havah had tubes put in her ears this week.  She has gone through 5 rounds of antibiotics in 3 months.  When the doctor put her tubes in on Thursday he said that her ears were still severely infected. (She has been on antibiotics for 2 weeks now)  It was kind of frustrating to hear that and to know that she was suffering and we didn't even know it.  However I think the tubes are already starting to help.  The doctor asked if she was babbling yet; when we told him yes he said we should expect for it to increase in frequency and volume.  It has!  She spent about 30 minutes playing in the floor when we got home squealing at the top of her lungs.  I think she feels better.  :)

Lastly, Hubby and I have prayed about a potential job promotion for him for a few days now.  This promotion would significantly increase our income however it would also increase the amount of time Hubby would have to spend at work for the first 6 months or so.  We found out on Friday that he is no longer in the running for the promotion.  We were shocked because he has consistently been a top performer in his field.  In our prayers we asked that the Lord would protect us from unforeseen dangers or pitfalls that comes along with any step of faith.  We believe He did just that.  Although we are disappointed we can't help but see God has a master plan for our lives.      

I'm so thankful for our week.  The hand of the Lord has been seen throughout.  He has reminded us, yet again, that He is faithful and that he will provide for all of our needs.

  1. Paw Paw used to say that the Lord looks after poor folks and fools and we have double coverage. Glad to see you have the same insurance that we do. You make me proud girl.
