15 Weeks

This week I had my first doctor's appointment and got to hear our little one's heart beat for the first time. For the duration of my pregnancy I have had a hard time believing that I have a baby growing inside. It has kind of felt like a perpetual state of Mono. After that heart beat it us undeniable. We are having a baby...or a puppy if you asked Leah.

People often ask, "Do you think it's a boy or a girl?". The answer is yes. It is either a boy or a girl. The other question is, "Do you want a boy or a girl?". Same answer. A boy or girl would be great!

Well it's off to the City Market. I'm so happy to be back in Kansas City where I know where everything is. I can find the City Market and the cutest coffee shop within 1 mile of it. I can find any grocery I need (except TJs of course) and when I get there I don't have to wait in the longest line you've ever seen in your life. What a luxury!

Sounds Like Kansas City Too!

Laying in bed last night I could hear the wind blowing through the trees. While in California I had forgotten that this is actually a normal sound arround here. It sounded like to might be raining. I had to hold my breath to be sure that it was the wind in the trees and not just another down pour. I have enjoyed the down pours, but I LOVE the sound of the wind in the trees just outside the window.

We are finally in a somewhat normal state of living now. We are renting a house from some friends until we can find our own place. It has a backyard which is just perfect for Zeb and Judah.

Now it's off to WalMart to get all of those things we decided not to bring from California in the moving truck.

It Feels Like Kansas City

Well friends we've made it! What a miracle! Sean, my mom and I arrived a week ago and crashed the Weavers. Mom left the next day and since then it feels like we've been in a bit of a whirl wind. Leaving California felt the same way.

Sean worked super hard to unload the moving truck. We had some great reinforcements come in and save the day. Some guys from this ministry came and helped him. We couldn't have done it without them.

Today we are moving to another basement and continuing our house search. The fun just never stops!

I am actually having a hard time believing that we are here. It kind of felt real when we went to church with the girls yesterday morning. It kinda feels more real today because it is raining and chilly outside. I'm sure we are only days away from glorious leaves. I imagine that it will be a process of letting life in Kansas City and in the IHOP community become a reality. What a great reality!
