Tiny Heartbeat

Luke and I heard our baby's heartbeat for the first time today! It was very strong and very fast. Because our baby is very little.

Praise God for new life and for this opportunity to appreciate what He's knitting together!

In Case You Thought She Wasn't Paying Attention...

Ellie and I have been reading a little Anne of Green Gables at night before bedtime. She's allowed to play quietly or look at books while I read, so I'm never sure if she's really listening or not.

Right now we're in the middle of the most memorable chapter for me, the one where Anne first meets Gilbert Blythe and he pulls her hair and calls her Carrots.

Sometimes Ellie wants to take the book and read. Normally, she flips through the pages and when I ask her to read it to me, she says, "Anne. Anne." Tonight, she said, "Anne. Anne." And then signed CARROTS.

Now it's even more memorable.
