Sweet surprises

As the Southern summer heat do my ankles! I officially have cankles...ha ha! I was not very happy about the look of my legs today and was really not enjoying coming home and elevating my ever swelling feet.  I wanted so badly to be outside in the heat, walking, playing in the yard with my sweet dog, or going to the gym for a spinning class; however, the mom in me thought it would be best to rest (even though I hate sitting still). I might have been throwing myself a small pity! As I sit with my feet elevated, the door bell rang and to my surprise there was a huge package at the door for me.  My sweet mother-in-law made our cradle bumper pad to go in our living room.  Not only did she make baby Grant his first bedding, but she also sent some sweet "pick me ups" for Grant and I.  It is amazing how God works through those that love us.  The small gifts and sweet letter was the perfect reminder of the miracle growing inside me and the great Blessing he already is to Brad and I and our families.  He is already so loved!! The "lovely" swelling is such a small sacrifice for such an amazing brings tears to my eyes!  My God is great and I love Him! I pray that Grant's heart yearns for God and he lives his life to serve his creator!  I also hope that one day Grant and I can be that "someone" that God uses to lift someone up or blesses someone through us (just as Nancy did for me today).

 I will post some recent pics....and hope to post a new belly picture this weekend. My belly is growing daily and I am loving (one of my favorite things ever) feeling him move inside my belly.  He makes me smile, laugh, and tear up daily through his sweet little kicks and punches. Being a mom is already amazing!

My cradle from when I was a baby. New bumper pad Nancy made to match living room

Brad is going to refinish the cradle and make it black.

Sweet book that Emily-Anne gave Grant and Nancy's sweet story about our precious baby!
