God is SO so SO good.

"be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." - romans 12:12

new due date - oct 16!

babyleif is not 9 weeks.......but just an itty bitty 6 weeks, they found a heartbeat!

the nausea has been in full force......but bring it on ;)

mr. leif is home today and so am i. we are so happy. we are so thankful. as we walked out of the clinic, he said, "let's go to barnes and noble....i wanna buy me some baby books!" he is so excited. me too.

we celebrated over some breakfast, where we concluded together, that we were ready to accept the challenge of miscarriage if that is what the Lord had planned.....and be thankful for all of our other blessings. it was almost as if God wanted us to find peace before our appointment.

and then we watched the screen and something looked like it was jumping up and down, it was the heartbeat's like finding out we are pregnant all over again! can you say rollercoaster!?!?! (although some of you know i am not good with carnival rides......i got sick at the sutton carnival once) but this crazy rollercoaster has ended beautifully.

bring on the name picking and the nursery decorating and the belly growing. (can i get a tripple fist pump!?!?)
