17 Weeks... Folks: KB's an Onion!

"Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop." --babycenter.com

I haven't had my weekly photo update yet, so I thought I'd throw out some information/facts instead :) Seriously, check out babycenter.com and the awesome images and videos they share about babies--both in and out of womb! It is impressive.




The Big news for me & baby this week: I felt KB move! 4 times already, since first felt movement last Friday!  It has been different fluttery, butterfly-ish feelings... SO Special!
On the downside, sleeping is just becoming pretty rough. I constantly find myself waking with aches and discomfort, only to see that it has been like 30-40 mins since the last time I checked the clock. Pretty much all night long :( But, I suppose it is helping prepare me for all the midnight feeding that will happen in just five months.

Onions, turnips, are you have a baby or a vegetable??!

I loved the baby flutters! It's one of the many things I miss about being pregnant. Eight years later, and I still remember like it was yesterday. I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying these special moments during your pregnancy!

Lea, glad Damon wasn't as excited about that ;) But I am SO glad we're pregnant together!

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
