filled with JOY to tell you...

Yes! Baby Lowe #3 is due January 9th, 2015!
We are praising God and thanking Him daily for this precious life,
this sweet one growing in my belly...

I am just through my first trimester now, and still almost in shock, as I see the goodness and redemption of God growing daily inside me.
It is truly a miracle, and we recognize this as a sweet gift and reminder that He loves us and that He loves life.

As I saw our little one last week, at 13 weeks, I was blown away at how much I loved this baby already 
Because it is MADE by a perfect creator, and because after so much loss in the last year or so, (including our last two pregnancies)... 
staring at this growing, perfectly forming baby IS a miracle.
and it IS a display of His goodness to us to restore we so badly desire.
I couldn't take my eyes off of it!
Thank you Jesus!

"You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
Oh Lord, my God, I will give you thanks forever!"
Psalm 30:11-12

here are a few more fun pics I just had to share...
(and a few more details about this pregnancy)

the girls are beside themselves excited, and sweet Abigail prays for the baby in my tummy every single day.
One of the first things she said was "Bethany! We get to be big sisters TOGETHER!"
(my heart exploded!)

With my most recent pregnancy ending in miscarriage and finding out it was a Molar Pregnancy, 
I had been considered "higher risk" through this first trimester, because the chance of another consecutive Molar is pretty high. But I was "cleared" last week that it is no longer a threat and I no longer have to have a ton of blood work at each appointment!
Praising God!

For those of you wondering, because these questions seem to always get asked:
I am due January 9th.
I am about 13 1/2 weeks now, (and yes I am already showing a lot!)
(and no, we did NOT plan on all our kids being born within two weeks of each other right at Christmastime! haha)
we WILL find out what we are having, probably towards the end of August.
(I need to prepare myself if I need to incorporate blue into this pink house!)

Abigail took this picture below...kindof turned out cool so I had to include it here!

We are thrilled and excited!
God is good, y'all.
