Thinking Pink

Well-- we're thinking pink here in Trenton, because baby #4 is going to be a GIRL!!!

Anyway, we are all really excited about this! Noah and Emma love talking to baby Lily and planning fun things to make and do for her. She is such a lucky girl to have a family who loves her so much!

She is due May 14th, but it will be a planned C-section, so we will just have to wait and see when she actually arrives! We're hoping to get as closed to the due date as possible though... the longer they stay put, the better they tend to do, I hear! :) Tomorrow we are officially 26 weeks along and we are just loving the journey and all that this pregnancy is teaching us! Isn't the gift of life just such a miracle? Can you believe that God trusts his children enough to send to us another little precious baby, so innocent and sweet and pure from heaven? Isn't is just incredible that babies come into the world full of so much love? We just can't wait to have sweet Lily here and to be able to hold her and get to know her!

We are so grateful to Heavenly Father for blessing us with one last baby to complete our earthly family!!! Little Lily is already so loved and adored. I don't think a family could be more excited about a new arrival! I hope that she is able to feel of our love and hear how much her brothers, sister, and parents adore her. We just know that she is a special part of our eternal family and we are so grateful that she is ours!!!

I agree, Ruth. I love being a mom and, if I could handle it and if we were prepared, we'd have more children right away. Having such a sweet tender spirit enter your home is unlike anything on this earth. Knowing that you have such a Godly power is so profound and humbles you in ways you've never felt before. I hope your pregnancy is going well. I love you and your beautiful little family.
