Update: Our little Babushka … ♀

Surprise… 

I knew it. I knew it. I knew it!!!

❀ GIRL ❀ 

I had felt from the beginning this baby was a girl so as I mentioned in the last post when at 18 weeks BLUE balloons popped out I WAS SHOCKED!!!

The Ultrasound Technician said she was 95% positive it was a Boy and even double checked it. So my joke to my best friend Michelle was that “there was still a 5% chance it was a girl!  I was even so confident to have told Jessie our Photographer/Friend/Balloon box maker (who has 3 precious little girls) that I was going to have to need some of her girls hand me downs before the reveal!

At 20 weeks our Dr. and his ultrasound technician thought it was a girl. So these past couple weeks we have been in limbo waiting for a confirmation.

Today at 23 weeks it was confirmed by Jessie’s sister Jenna Kinsley that it’s

Momma’s intuition was right! We are thrilled to welcome a girl and to know she is healthy is such a blessing. I have to admit that if if was a boy it may have been at least a little bit slightly harder having a boy right after Jaxton. That is my own personal feelings and I’m sure it would not have taken me long to over come that emotional hurdle. The Lord is Good and he provides.

Originally I had never pictured myself with a girl in our family other than me. I wanted to be the only girl. A house full of boys and me. Sounds selfish and ridiculous I know. I just feel like i’m more of a guys kinda girl.

I have struggled with thinking this girl is going to turn out like me (defiant, sassy, strong willed and moody). Which scares me to death!!! Although Jake  already has those traits I feel like I can handle them with a boy. In addition, on a personal note, because my mom and I don’t have a great relationship by any stretch of the imagination it scares me that me and my daughter will have an equally strained dynamic. But the more I think about how she will be born into a Happy Marriage with Christian morals, have an older brother and an angel brother as her guardian our circumstance is already worlds different.

Father God, Thank you for our precious daughter who is being knit in my womb with your wonderful creative hand. Thank you for masterfully putting each part together and skillfully making each organ work properly. Thank you for LOVING her before we even know her.

I pray for the love that we are so excited to give her to fully be received and reciprocated. We pray that we are a blessing in each others lives.  I want to pray for Josh and I to raise her by our example of Integrity, Loyalty, Faith, Trust and Unconditional Love. I want to pray for her body to be pure and holy until the day of marriage. May her husband also keep his mind and body pure. I pray he sees her as the Proverbs 31 woman and cherishes her far above rubies and that her children respect and honor her. May she effect this world greatly for your kingdom and know a love for you greater than any other. I pray for her protection and that she listens to wisdom. May you bless her and have favor on her life even now.

Help my children to live lives that are always overflowing with thankfulness, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Col. 2:7, Ephesians 5:20) (31 days of prayer for your children)

Yawning.

23 week bump

OK… time to send me some hand me downs!!!  🙂  LOL!

Love, Lisa

Special Announcement…

Josh voted BOY.                  Lisa voted GIRL.

I was so nervous! The anticipation had been building for 4 days! My best friend Michelle and I went to an ultrasound on January 17th to have the lady put the gender on a piece of paper. She then gave the envelope with the gender to Michelle. Michelle didn’t open it until I was on the plane ride home to Indiana! Then she called a friend here in Indy to get the box and balloons ready for the reveal. Josh and I both originally thought it was a girl. Then slowly over time he changed to BOY.

I was DEAD SET it was a GIRL! I was so convinced that it was a girl I wondered how I would be able to breath if blue balloons popped out!

Well, I am slowly recovering from shock! The lack of pink balloons lingering in my house is haunting.  LOL  😉

18 weeks now and feeling great!

{Much Love} from our family to yours!

JAXTON PRAYER ALERT

He has crashed multiple times in the last 12 hours and has had to ventilated by hand once. We’ve decided to ask God for a COMPLETE miracle.  This afternoon or evening we’re going to take Jaxton off the ventilator and take his life out of human hands and place it into God’s hands.  We’re asking everyone to join us in praying for a COMPLETE miracle for Jaxton. We’re praying God completely heals him of Trisomy 18, he breathes on his own, his brain is healed, the omphalocele is gone, and he leads a long and productive life, here on Earth, healthy & happy and glorifying God in everything he does before he spends eterniity with Him!!!

Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
