Life’s Been Busy

Oh My! I didn’t realize that it’s been a couple of months I haven’t posted anything.

It has been a quite busy months for us. We have been on road trips to visit friends and family for sharing what God has been doing in our lives and about Wycliffe.

We are so excited to go!

I am trying to find time to post more about our adventures, journey with God and what is happening with Wycliffe in all around the world. YES! God is working in people’s hearts, He is opening ways for those who don’t have the Word to have the Word.

We are so thankful God has provided the needs and time for us to go visiting friends and families in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama from June 7th through June 16th. This can be done only because of God’s grace, love and mercy.

We even are celebrating our 5th Anniversary on the trip 😀 (hey! it’s today! LOL!) I never stop thanking God for my wonderful husband, Dave. We have gone through these sweet, wonderful and challenging 5 years and more amazing years to go through together with God. It’s all from Him and for Him!

I’ll be back with some pictures and stories soon after we get home on June 18th!

Please be praying for us! THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your support!

Finally 39 Weeks

September 13th, 2012

Our waiting is finally reached the end.

Day after day…

Week after week…

Month after month…

Today is the day we are gonna have you and hold you in our arms, Little Emma.

(Journaling)

We went to the hospital and it tool an hour for the C-section preparation. Finally around 3:30ish they took me to the Operation Room, and my wonderful husband, Dave, was beside me faithfully and watched the whole process. He told everybody that it was the coolest things he ever saw of delivering a baby.

So thankful! I am still in the process of recovering, it is not easy and definitely C-section is not an easy way or a short-cut to have a baby like others said. It has its own hard times. It’s God who has been helping me and giving me the extra strength and energy I need to go through the process. It is Him I am giving praise and thanks! His presence is real in my life.

I created this layout to remember the last day I had this bump, my husband (like he did before with our first baby, Abigail) took my last day with this the baby bump, the minutes before the C-section. Yes, I had the BIG one! Imagine my back pain and sciatic nerve pain, please! 😀 LOL!!

So, what is the most thing you remember from your pregnancy?

35 Weeks and Counting!

Yes, I am at my 35 weeks of pregnancy now. I feel like it is not too long ago that we found out that we are expecting the second baby. And now 5 more weeks to the arrival of the baby.

I praise my Most High God for:

  • His blessing in this pregnancy
  • the good health for me and the baby
  • extra strength to carry the baby though I am having severe back pain and sciatic nerve pain that limit me to do some activities
  • Abigail is growing in understanding that she will have a sibling, though she is still trying to grasp the idea that she will share her Momma and Poppa, including her toys with the new baby.
  • Dave, for always be there for me when I need him, for always encouraging me in my not-so-good-mood moments, for always helping me to overcome my pains, for always love me, Abigail and the baby, and for always helping with the house works though he has TONS of things to do at work.

I go seeing my OB/GYN every week now. The baby can arrive any time soon!

20120611-100157.jpg

I am so thankful for now I am at 25 weeks and counting. It’s more that half way to have the baby! Woohoo!

I just cannot wait to hold her in my arms. I can feel her kicks every moment. I can feel her moves every moment. I fall in love deeper and deeper every day.

At this 25 weeks I feel wonderful and beautiful (never said that to myself before ^_^), though I have some proble with my lower back and sciatic nerve pain. The pain might limit me of doing things, but will never stop me to praise God for what has been happening jn our life, for the growing healty Abigail and for this little munchkin #2 (we will let you know the name we pick on the day when she is born!!! A surprise, doesn’t anybody love surprise?)

And something special is coming this week, too! Can’t wait to share with you all!
