Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice!

Oh thank Heaven for our little girl!

The news was so sweet-- everything looks great! We were able to witness some amazing gymnastic feats as little Emma Grace flipped and wiggled her way through her second ultrasound photo shoot. Healthy heart, head, arms and legs... all measurements within the normal range. What a blessing!

Check out these cute little tootsies!

And now I'm seeing pink everywhere! Pink! Pink! and More Pink!
Everything is so cute and frilly and adorable and PINK! :D

Robby and I are so thrilled. We can't wait to see our sweet baby girl in person. There's been something of a baby boom in our Sunday School class. There has also been a "baby boom" among my friends. I have two different friends in two different states who have both said that suddenly ALL of their friends are currently pregnant.

So many of the Fun Young Couples (married couples w/o children) are now pregnant that the church has started up a whole new class called "Great Expectations" for first time parents. The rest of the FYC class is considering changing the coffee maker, thinking there must be something in those beans.

This new class is another huge answer to prayer for us. When we first found out that we were expecting, we immediately prayed for help and for resources. We knew we were going to be so unprepared for the many changes ahead. Only a week or two later the new class was announced. God is so amazing is has blessed us so greatly. His provision never fails and is always exactly what we need. Our prayer is now for Him to prepare us to be Emma Grace's parents and to raise her up in the way she should go so that when she is old she will not depart from it.

I have a feeling it's going to be quite an adventure.

MICHELLE MA BELLE NOW ARE YOU!?!?!?! I LOVE THE SONOGRAMS THEY ARE PRECIOUS!!!!! The one of her feet is AMAZING. I'm so excited for you and Robbie, you're going to make SUCH a fabulous mom!!

God is so good, and your faith so affirming for me. I've missed you so much..

THANK YOU for your kind words! BBE was really a trip, totally unexpected where it finally led to to boot. Just like God to drop a pearl in my lap in the midst of such an interrupted life. Just had a meeting this week with the new *studio band*, we're getting ready to start recording (for fun). Which reminds me, I have to go program!

PLEASE keep in touch. I miss you so!!

Thank you ladies! Yes, this is amazing, and scary, and wonderful. I just love the Simon updates on your blog, Amy. I'm overjoyed to hear that your baby boy is doing well and is now at casa Dantzler. :D
Emily, I love your blog and enjoy keeping up with the Gentry's. It makes me feel like I've got a little bit of Travis Ave right here in Alexandria.

Lace!!! The song sounds soooo GREAT! I can't wait to hear more. I miss you too. It sounds like you are keeping busy and that your blog vacation was most productive (but I'm selfishly glad you're back). ;)
