I have been remiss in writing...I apologize. I don't really have a reason or any good excuse. I think that perhaps I've neglected blogging lately to think, sit, rest, clean, nest, prepare, process & even decorate a little boy's nursery some. I'm trying to figure out how adding this new precious life to our family will change the dynamic that I was just starting to become a bit more comfortable with. My "normal" has only seemed normal for a very brief amount of time and it's changing. It's scary and increasingly exciting. I want so badly for joy to be on the other side of this adventure and for our hearts and arms to be full once again. But, I know that just as full as I pray my arms will be, I know that my heart will never be completely full. There is and will always be a very special and sacred place in my heart for Annabelle...and that's exactly the way it should be. Our third child is already changing the landscape of our hearts and starting to claim a place all his own. I am finding that there is even more room in my heart than I ever imagined. He is by both his timing and his name's biblical meaning our "bringer of light" and we are just beginning to catch a glimpse!
We will be headed to Charleston tomorrow evening for an 8am appointment on Wednesday morning to have Luke's follow-up fetal echo done with our favorite pediatric cardiologist (although all of them are wonderful, we all have one who's meant the most to us & we were blessed enough to get him this time). We are praying that his effusion has resolved and that everything looks strong & perfect & that no more advanced tests are necessary...would you please pray with and for us?
