Quick Update: Still Pregnant!

Hello, friends, family, and faithful readers. Just stopping in to say that we had a lovely Sunday and are currently having a busy Monday--but I'm still pregnant! Sorry to anyone who had gotten their hopes up ;-) By God's grace, he'll be here soon, and I can't wait for you all to "meet" him. Until then, here are a couple of cute stories from this weekend:

Sophia, who has just figured out in the past couple of weeks that there is a baby in Mommy's belly is very fond of giving kisses to her little brother. She also says, "pahs" (prayers) to "Got" (God) for "Baby." It's so sweet! I just hope she is so infatuated with him once he's on the outside!

After going for a wonderful walk to the library as a family (about 2.5 miles), we came home to realize that Mama should have put on some sunscreen--we hadn't registered that by leaving around 11 we wouldn't be home until the sun was blazing overhead. The area around my collarbone got a bit burnt (nothing too serious); the funny part is that I was wearing my crucifix, and I now have a perfect cross-shaped spot below my throat! My husband, having recently read Angels & Demons by Dan Brown told me, "Hey, Hon, I can totally see 'Illuminati' written across your chest!" We had a good laugh over it. Just hope it fades by the time I'm in my friend's wedding over Fourth of July weekend!

Blessings to you all! Hope I will have some exciting news very soon!


  1. Still praying for you, Bethany! By the way, I'm not sure I thanked you for your kind email.

  2. Hi Bethany,

    Bethany, I am so thrilled that you get to meet your son very soon! It sounds like Sophia is going to be a great big sister already :)

    I'm praying your labor is a joyful and prayerful one. Your descriptions of labor in past posts have really affirmed my interest in natural childbirth, and have been a true inspiration to me.

    Take care,
