Vientidos


I've been LOVING feeling baby move all the time. One moment I've been kicked above my belly button, the next it is way on my side, then over to the other side, then way down low... This kid must love all the space it has right now... Well, soak it up, baby, because soon enough you'll be cramped in there so tight, you'll wish you could do those cartwheels you've been working on:)

Now, Tim and I can just stare at my belly and watch the baby and it's cartwheels popping out of me! So much fun! It was really special for me to feel it at first, then for Tim to feel it, and NOW for us to SEE it move is so miraculous!


 This info is from babycenter.com (I'm not insinuating we're having a boy... that's just their way of wording it this week):

How your baby's growing:

At 11 inches (see this link to visualize baby at the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

ps. Our Sister Katie (and Chris) Uttke is DUE with their baby TOMORROW! Please pray for a safe and healthy baby and delivery.

Having fun when you're not having fun.

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!
