34 weeks!

Preggo Update:

Wow, I have about 6 weeks left to go until baby girl is here! I'm so excited. Monday we go for a sonogram so then I can settle in my mind that she is a girl indeed. (probably) Either gender I'm completely happy with, it's just good to get those things set in your mind. Last week this pregnancy was NOT going so great. This week it is! Probably helps that I finally got my prenatal vitamins. Last week I ran out of them and had issues with the pharmacy. And I've been way more intentional to eat good food. Amazing what a difference it can do to how you feel. Elisha seems to really get that I have a baby in me, who knows. Every now and then, out of the blue, he'll hug my tummy and pat it saying "baby". It makes the heart happy! I know he'll be a fabulous big brother. He's doing much better this week too. Guess the saying holds true "if momma aint happy, aint nobody happy". At least for these two weeks it has. Here I am all preggers... (its not the greatest angle or background, my mom took it with my phone so you can only imagine, but hey I finally got an updated pregger picture.)

Bud update:

He's in the air and on his way to hold me and Eli in his arms again. We've missed him so much and some it seemed to drag but looking back it flew by... kinda like this pregnancy. His trip was everything and more that we prayed for. So thank you to all of those that prayed for us and for his trip there. He was confident to leave the place again for a chunk of time. And not to mention Hollie is back and living in our guesthouse still so that's a huge help! She's pretty amazing and a blessing to have as part of the Mattaw team.

Mattaw update:

Well I guess there's not much else to update on except Bud and Hollie did get all the kids to write their sponsors! I'm not so sure how detailed the content is but they did it. So all you sponsors expect some mail soon! All the kids seem to be doing great and really well in school. I can't wait to squeeze them all and tell them how much they're loved! Soon enough. Here's one of our boys, Juma, writing his sponsor.... (look at those eyes of love!)
And a little blogger update on the style I've been switching around: I'm hoping to get a banner made and will stick with one theme! So until then I'm just testing around to see what other backgrounds look like. It might not be till April that I have a set background though!

"At the moment of death we will not be judged according to the number of good deeds we have done or by the diplomas we have received in our lifetime. We will be judged according to the love we have put into our work" -Mother Theresa

Love you all.

Created for love,
