IT'S OFFICIAL!!!



This morning we went for our big sonogram to confirm the sexes of the babies and to measure all their parts and major organs. It’s official: We’re having a BOY & GIRL!!! I am so overwhelmed right now… just absolutely blown away by God! He truly does give the best gifts and I’m so full of gratitude that He would give us such a precious gift – two children at once! What a blessing! They both looked perfect and healthy. They are both around 10 inches long now and weigh about 12 ounces each… almost a pound already! Isn’t that amazing?!?!! All their vital organs are there and functioning perfectly. We got to see a close-up of each heart and see the four chambers that have formed. Each babies’ umbilical cord was perfect and had the 3 vital components that are necessary. How can someone see such an amazing creation and not believe in God! He is the Creator and giver of life and we are witnessing His handiwork firsthand. Praise be to Him! Baby girl has her mouth open in this picture... so cute!

Leah - You look amazing. We are so excited for you and all you're going through. I don't envy the discomfort you will feel in the Texas heat this summer, but it'll all be worth it!
Excited!
