Words really cannot express just how excited we are to share that we are expecting another little Emerson this fall! Truly children are a blessing from the Lord and we are so excited. We are actually due in October so I’ll probably be referring to our baby as “Our Little Pumpkin.” :)
It was so fun to tell Elijah because he had been asking for a baby. I told him if he wanted a baby that he needed to pray for one. He prayed for a baby all the time. Isn’t that the sweetest thing? He prayed numerous times everyday that God would send our family a baby and then God did! I really hope that Eli remembers praying for a baby and then God answering his prayers! 1 Samuel 1:27 is taking on a whole new meaning in our household: “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to Him.”
I’m still in my first trimester but I am feeling okay. I’m slightly nauseated but nothing serious like when I was expecting Elijah. I had extreme morning sickness for months and months. So far I don’t feel much like eating and all I want to do is sleep but I can handle that! This pregnancy feels very different from my last. When I was pregnant with Elijah I was a newlywed and still in school full-time! Now the hubby and I have been married for four years, we have a three-year old, and I am blessed to be able to stay at home with my family. It’s nice to no longer be in school full-time while pregnant but I do have a VERY energetic little boy. Thankfully we have gotten into a nice routine where Eli is taking a nice nap in the afternoon so that I can rest or sleep for a while. I’m not able to take a nap everyday but just laying down to rest has been very helpful. The hubby is taking super good care of me and even washing some dishes. :)
Was there a time in your child’s life when they prayed for something and then God answered their prayer?
