The baby had the hiccups last night 🙂


First time I’ve been still enough to feel what was going on was last night on the couch, crocheting. That’s right, I’m pregnant, bare foot most of the time and I crochet … baby hats, big hats, scarves, purses, blankets … I’m that girl.

I just had to share how exciting it was to feel hiccups in my belly that weren’t mine. I am so inlove with this miracle! I CANNOT wait to see my precious babies face, squinty little eyes dark as the night starring wildly around the room for the first time. And then those beautiful deep eyes will settle on mine and we’ll see eachother for the first time too – how awesome is that moment?

I’m flabbergasted at the awesomeness of this experience. What other Maker could so perfectly shape this life from our flesh and blood. I’m utterly spell bound.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (An excerpt from Psalm 139).”

  1. Hey…I actually have never meet you…I have met Aaron. My husband Brian knows Ben D. Brian and I are praying about weather or not to try for a baby at this point in our lives. We got married about the same tiem you guys did. Well after reading your entries, I feel more sure that I do. You are in our prayers! ~erin

  2. Erin,
    Hi – I’m glad the site has been able to help you decide or think about having kids. For us, we just said when it happens it happens. We told people who would ask that we wanted to wait at least 3 years, incase we couldn’t get pregnant or there were problems … but when we found out my dad was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer waiting to have his grandkids no longer became an option or an obsticle. My dad passed away August 29 and I feel so fortunate that although he will never have met my baby, he knows who this person is already, and maybe he’s already read a book to the baby or held him or her in Heaven. I take comfort in knowing that he’s watching over me anyway.
    I just feel fortunate enough to be living this experience, in all it’s akwardness and excitment – I’ve always wanted to be a mom and I’m blessed to be able to do so.

  3. just wanted to let you know we are expecting a baby girl in June and she has the hiccups all the time!
