Little (literally) updates

OK, so if this is lame/boring for some of you reading this...well, just sit tight - it'll be a short post.

ABBY IS MOVING!! Now, I know she's been moving for a while now, but I haven't been able to feel her like I wanted. I have surprised myself by realizing how paranoid I get over certain issues, and this pregnancy has really shed light on some serious control issues that I have. Thank goodness for the Lord's never ending graciousness to silly ol' me. But, Abby has been giving me some excellent, firm kicks (I have had to tell her a few times that I appreciate her letting me know all is well, but that she's being a bit awkward) - and Donald was even able to feel one of her stronger ones! Such an amazing, special feeling/process. I have developed such a respect for the female body. OH, and according to babycenter.com - she's the length of a very long carrot (about 11 inches). Hopefully her hair will be the color of a carrot too (I'm so bad).

Angela,
Wow! I had not expected to read a comment from you! And to find out you are pregnant! congrats! Well, actually Josh and I are living in Arlington. Just a skip away from y'all, I guess. Josh is at UTArlington and I'm at Southwestern Seminary. We are both about to finish our master's.
Great to hear from you. I'll try to keep up with your blog. Thanks for saying hi!
