The most excitement we've had this holiday season was finding out there's going to be an addition to our family! Baby Bean Bramlett (as I affectionately refer to him/her) is 11 weeks and should be greeting the world at the end of July. We can't wait to meet the one God is forming inside my body! We know he/she will be created in HIS image, so no matter the sex or if the hair is curly or straight, our baby will be beautiful! In about 8 more weeks we'll be able to find out if it's a boy or girl...definitely looking forward to that day! As far as how mama's feeling, I keep reminding myself it could be a lot worse! I have been nauseated, but no where near the point some of my other friends were. I eat every 2-3 hours and that helps a lot. Our next doctor's appointment is this Monday at 8:30 am, so I'm sure I'll have an exciting update to post afterwards. For now, though, I think I'll leave you with a few verses from one of my favorite Psalms (this Psalm has come to mean even more to me since I found out I was pregnant), Psalm 139.
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
Psalm 139:13-16 (Message)
