We’re at our new place. It only took us 25 minutes to load up all of our stuff. We are sooooo thankful to everyone who came out to help. It took about the same amount of time to unload everything! Jeremy’s right, we are becoming pretty pro at moving. Our new place is beautiful and we feel completely, undeservedly blessed to be where we are right now. And I don’t mean just about the new place of residence.
On Sunday I sang to God and it was a truly powerful morning. Since then I’ve been reflecting on how indescribably intricate life is and I was struck by awe. I feel incredibly thankful for my life, for all that God had taught me and lead me through, for his blessings of sorrow and joy. All of it is so dear to my little heart right now.
Speaking of little hearts, I’m in my 9th week now. According to my book, the baby is now starting to look like a “proper” baby. Its hands, feet, and limbs are growing quite fast. Its fingers and toes are nearly complete, and touch pads are forming on the fingers. The eyelids almost cover the eyes and the nose has taken shape. The baby is about an inch in length.
