The Beginning of Our Journey

     Steven and I have been so blessed by our family, marriage, and friends in this adventure we have shared so far.  The Lord has now given us the sweetest, most precious blessing in the world by giving us a baby to love, cherish, and bring glory to Him.  We are humbled by this honor and are so excited!  I am, today, 7 weeks and 2 days pregnant with our first baby.  (He/she is approximately the size of a blueberry right now!)  My official due date is August 29th.  We will return to the doctor on the 20th for a complete physical and ultrasound.  Our goal with this blog is to chronicle our journey and story for friends and family in hopes that you will join us in prayer for a healthy pregnancy and baby.  We also hope that in writing our story, we will remember this special chapter in our life. 
     "Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
      The fruit of the womb is a reward."  Psalm 127:3

Below are some pictures we captured while sharing our news!
 This is a picture of Maddie in the shirt Mama and Daddy used to tell people they were having Travis...haha!
