So, this week, Mr. Darling and I "saw" our baby for the first time. Baby Darling is just a bit over two inches long. We are so fascinated by the fact that we already have baby pictures. I mean, seriously, how cool is that?
It has been said that we want a boy. I would like to quell the rumor. Mr. D. jests that he would like a little boy. I simply want a happy, healthy baby and the talent to raise him or her to appreciate the gift of the atonement. That has been my daily prayer.The technician labeled head and body and arms and legs. We were able to see baby move just a little bit and he looks comfy, like he is reclining and putting his feet up...
Here is the picture I am most excited about! Our little peapod has a heartbeat!!! We saw it move on the U/S and heard it on the machine. Happiness is a little, healthy heartbeat.
So, we are due in December, and delighted about our early Christmas present... I bear witness, without being preachy, that prayer is a true principle and the Lord does listen. It seems he is happy to work in his own time and knows better than I both what I need and when I need it. Merciful is the Lord.
