Praise The Lord!


Do you want to know what this picture of Marcus and his mom is about?


We just told our families that we are...



Holy Cannoli!


I took this picture as I was telling my sister and her family!

My mom and dad knew from the day before, but were just as excited!




I really couldn't wait to tell all of you! So, I am 10 weeks pregnant and due July 22nd! We CAN'T believe it! I have seen the baby twice and I still think I am lying when I say I'm pregnant.


I feel great, just super tired.

But who cares, because I'm PREGNANT! Woo Hoo!



Make no mistake about it, God did this. And I thank Him everyday!




I think it's a girl, what do you think?

Staci @ FiaBella Photography said...

Oh girl, I am SO happy for you! I don't know what path you walked to get here. My hubby and I fought many battles and endured terrible losses, stress, medical procedures and disappointment before Sofia came along. It was a long road but worth the journey.

So happy for you both. The adventure of a lifetime awaits you.

And you will totally be well supplied with tutus for a baby girl if I have any say about it! We are local...I'll deliver!!

Blessings to you and Merry Christmas!

Crystal said...

I am thrilled for you and your big news. I am a blog-follower even though I don't have a blog nor do I know you in "real-life". However, your blog makes me happy and gives me wonderful ideas. I can't wait to see how you decorate the nursery and all the stories you share with us along the way! Congrats and God's blessings!!

Miss G said...

Congratulations, Dina! I found your blog via Nester's home tour and realized from the shop you mentioned that you must live in the metroplex too. Fun.

I too am pregnant with my first and remember that extreme tiredness! I am due in April and now have much more energy although I slightly miss that excuse of being too tired to do anything else to just sit and read blogs and e-mail all evening. :)

May God continue to richly bless you, your husband and that sweet babe on the way! Kelly

p.s. A friend gave me "The Pregnancy Journal" by Christine Harris and it has a little entry for every day telling you something that's going on with the baby. I have really enjoyed it. My friend mentioned that one of her friends used it as a guide to praying for her baby. Praying for the eyes when they're developing, etc.

p.s.s. if you find any great baby shops in the metroplex I'd love to hear about them. :)
