Waiting...

...and waiting, to see the doctor, that is. We had to wait about 30 minutes or so, but it was worth the wait. The doctor's office was incredible and this was the amazing view of the city we had from his office.



Also while waiting, a couple of men brought these fresh flowers in for us to enjoy. They were beautiful!


Exhausted after a full day at language school.


After a long day away, I was so excited to come home and hug on my little one.

And here is the proud BIG brother showing off our new "baby" :)

So, yes, we are officially expecting baby #2 and couldn't be more excited. YAY! I'm about 8 weeks along and am due around May 26th. I couldn't have been happier with the medical care here. I actually saw a doctor BEFORE I was 37 weeks (which is what happened in America. ha). The doctor was extremely knowledgeable and actually started the hospital where I'll be delivering. He is about 70 years old, YES 70, and I'm not going to lie, that freaked me out a little at first. However, after meeting him, I totally understood why he was recommend by so many of my friends. He had a wonderful bedside manner-much different from the doctors I used in the States. He is so busy and practically lives at the hospital...which explains why he was late. But once he was with us, he gave us his undivided attention and was so thorough with everything. We look forward to the next several months as we prepare to add another precious life to our family. God has been so good to us, and we pray that our lives glorify Him alone as we are embarking on this parenthood journey :)

Glad Micah is going to have a teammate when you all start the Akin domination that is sure to occur once everyone is in middle school, if not before. Couldn't be happier for you guys and wish we could be with you during the exciting journey. Know that you are in our prayers. Love you lots!

Congratulations, Kari! Your kids will be almost two years apart, right? That is the same 'distance' as Georgia and Baxter, and I love it! Praying for you as you travel through this pregnancy.
