Baby Almasy

Jen here. It is time--Hallelujah! A time I have looked forward to since I was a young girl (not sure why...maybe God?). A time we have looked forward to eagerly.God has blessed us with a baby!
God is so gracious. He has placed us in an amazing, authentic community of people who need Jesus and who LOVE Jesus and long to serve Him with their lives. Many of these dear friends and acquaintances have children (new babies to teenagers), and Roy and I have had a front row seat to their families, discipline, struggles and general life with kids. Over the past year and a half I have learned so much through the women about being a wife, mother and mother-to-be. Through all of it I have concluded: Wow, having kids really is a huge commitment and sacrifice, yet, I still want to have kids, to the glory of God. :)

So, here are the facts:
Baby is due around May 18th, 2012 (day before my little sis' high school graduation!)
In the photo I am 19 weeks along, but now I am 22 weeks along (40 weeks is the entire typical pregnancy)
Things are going well--no complications or problems this far. Praise Jesus!
I feel the baby moving several times a day--little pokes and prods from the inside. So interesting and fun!!

More updates soon!
