The big annoucement

My wife and I are expecting our first child!

Due late July 2009! We are excited obviously!! We shared this with our church today as well. So 2009 will bring a lot of changes in our lives. This past Thursday we got to see our first images via ultrasound and then we got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. Truly a miracle, both the child as well as the technology. My wife has the heartbeat recorded on her phone, so if you want to hear it, just ask, she'll be overjoyed to share it with you! The jagged line across the bottom of the photo above is the heartbeat, pumping along like a small train at 164 beats per minute. Doc said things are going well, and we'll get another checkup in 4 more weeks. So I would ask and invite that you pray for all three of us in the months to come. Pray that we are great parents to this gift from God. Pray for a healthy mom and baby. And pray for wisdom for me. Thanks!

Congrats to you and your wife. My hubby and I recently found out we are expecting our fourth edition as well. Being a parent is such a special joy.

with blessings,

What awesome news! Congratulations! Are you going to find out if it's a boy or a girl before birth? We didn't with our first (and second, but not our third, who just turned 2 months) and I think the surprise makes the experience so much better

We will probably find out. We've got some time yet to decide though.
