It's a Cookin'

I know it's been awhile since I've been on here. I've been holding onto some special news that was keeping my mind in other places. I am so excited to announce that Dirk and I are going to have a baby!

We found out June 22nd, of course the day AFTER Father's Day, but we didn't tell anyone for awhile because we wanted to make sure that the baby was thriving and well. I had my first ultrasound on Friday and everything looks great. It is such a miracle to see the little heart beating on the monitor, I am blown away at how amazing God is and that in 7 months we will be holding that little "blob" in our arms.

Among all of the positive, I am also anxious for the second trimester to come as the chances of a miscarriage drop significantly after the 12th week. It is nerve wracking but I keep remembering, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:6-7.

Although I posted that we were "preheating the oven" neither of us expected it to preheat so quickly but we are so blessed. Now that we've "come out" I can start to share some of the awesome things I've found. I will say that I probably won't be posting many recipes in the near future as I'm a rather picky eater right now. The direction of the blog may change a bit but I will remain truthful and share with you our journey through life just as I have been. I'm (more like Dirk is) also working on a new blog so I hope to have that up fairly soon as well.

I'll leave you with our first picture of our precious little one. So amazing!
