just a little life line*...


We're expecting a baby! My unofficial due date looks to be May 17th. We are all very excited around here. No real symptoms yet, I'm only about 5 weeks along, so it all feels a little unreal to me. I keep looking at pictures of babies around this age and trying to picture this impossibly tiny person curled up inside me. The kids keep talking to the baby, which is really cute, even if it only rice-sized right now. :)

Of course, being truly geeky homeschoolers, we will make a unit study out of following the baby's development. Nothing like encouraging a pro-life mentality like finding out that, even though my period is only a week late, even though I just found out I was pregnant yesterday, the baby already has a beating heart that is busily dividing into chambers and already pumping it's own blood, and the main parts of the brain have already formed.
Life is beautiful and awe-inspiring. We are thankful for the gift.




*Swiped lyric from Marie Bellet's song...awesome cd's, highly recommended! Her lyrics give me chills. Someone should buy me her new one for my birthday...
