Update on sweet baby. . .

Sweet little baby is due September 24th; this week marks the beginning of my 2nd trimester. We actually found out that we were pregnant while we were in California--which was especially neat because we were with both sets of parents for the first time in 3 1/2 years. It was also so kind of the Lord to work it out that way because we were able to encourage Steve's family with the news--it was something happy in the midst of a hard time. This little video was taken when we heard the baby's heartbeat and actually saw the baby for the first time. At the end of the video, you can hear the ultra-sound technician asking if Steve is videoing. . .and then the video promptly ends:) I had no idea that Steve was actually even videoing--which made the video that much funnier to me:) You can also tell that I am a first-time mom in the sense that I am asking "Is that the heartbeat?" and "Is everything okay?" :)

Thanks for all of your sweet notes and for being so excited for us!


  1. You guys did a great job keeping a secret! What a blessing to find out during your trip. I love how God just knows everything going on in our lives and encourages us in the midst of difficulty. How wonderful! And your video is hilarious! Sarah- I know I'll be the same way.....but the video taping & her comment is just hilarious!!! So glad you got it....at least for a few seconds before you got caught! :)

  2. Haha! That's great! Sarah, I was the same way! I think I asked at every appointment if everything is ok:) Awww! Hearing the heartbeat was always something I looked forward to...so special! Thanks for sharing the video with all of us!

  3. This is GREAT! Nice work Steve! Tee hee! What a wonderful sound! I've been thinking of you guys A LOT lately. I just need to pick up the phone and call you, and then tell you my FUNNY dream with you guys! =) Until then, keep the updates coming!

  4. That is funny about taping the heartbeat! It is the greatest thing to hear the heartbeat! It was good to see you a little bit on Sunday!

  5. YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!! I am SO excited for you guys!! I haven't been on blogger much bc scrolling through everything starts making me sick---so this was an extra special visit! And guess what...my official due date is Sept. 20th! Hey, we may just be "pushing" at the same time...HAHA! SO, I'm guessing that since you don't like to wait for surprises (like me) that you will be finding out what you're having?????

  6. You have such a cute little voice :)

    I asked "is everything o.k.?" every time for every child. I guess it's just a mom thing.

    I laughed when I heard the ultrasound tech ask if Steve was taping...too funny!
