A new adventure...

If you look very carefully in the sonogram photo above, what you'll see is my first grandchild! So our year of adventure continues with us becoming Grandparents!

Here, at almost seven weeks, he or she is a little peanut just about a centimeter long. And he or she is a busy peanut this week: elbows are forming, fingers are forming, feet and ears and nose are forming. No wonder his mommy (Nikki) is tired all the time! Rejoice with us, and with Tim and Nikki, Gentle Reader,and pray for this little one, who is fearfully and wonderfully made!

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.
~Psalm 139

Woo-hoo! That is very exciting! Congratulations to Nikki and Tim, and to you and Dave. I pray that this first trimester goes safely and with a minimum amount of misery for Nikki!
