Flutters of new life

>> Saturday, March 15, 2008

This week we had our first truly warm spring-like day. This is Lucas early in the week, aching for some outdoor play time. We ventured into the cold and flurries just for a change of pace. (Notice the dusting of snow and the snowsuit...it was NOT warm enough to play outside. But we couldn't wait any longer!) And then, Friday we had temperatures in the 50's and the plants and the kids (and mommies too) couldn't wait to scream "SPRING is HERE!"
The promise of spring and warmer weather has not only brought signs of new life outdoors. Yes, the trees are budding and green is beginning to emerge from the gray. But this week also brought a different kind of "new-life fluttering" for me. I have started feeling the baby move. Just flutters, you know that feeling like your insides are moving around and your organs have all just had a chinese fire drill, but movement none-the-less. It is reassuring and scary all at the same time. Up to this point, even through the nausea and throwing up and the slowly expanded belly, I could attribute those sypmtoms to something other than pregnancy in my head. But feeling this new life start to make himself or herself known makes this seem unignorable.
Our ultrasound is in less than three weeks but I wish it were tomorrow. I have been waiting all winter for this... both spring and the answers about this pregnancy that I desperately need.
For now, the waiting time will hopefully be filled with more days like this one.... beautiful, warm and refreshing to the soul.

Muddy hands...a true sign of spring.

Enjoying the warm weather and time together outside. See the smiles... we SO missed the sun!

I posted about playing outside that day too...and tried to get a muddy hand picture as well, but failed. Great minds think alike. :)

I'm glad for the flutters...and am hoping that baby keeps moving for 100 years.

I remember that first warm day. Down here we are wondering what happened to winter this year. I think I must have misplaced it. We never even got a good snow. I guess I can't complain since we've been bike riding in the cul-de-sac all February.

We are praying for you and the wee one! Hoping you can find moments where God takes your worry and lets you just enjoy the life growing in you. Let's talk soon. I miss you!

What beautiful photos! I can only imagine how difficult it is to have several weeks left to wait before your ultrasound. I will be watching for updates, take care.

What fun pics! Farrah, I know exactly what you're feeling in regards to your pregnancy. The only advice that I can give, and I know that you know this, is to TRUST GOD. Jeremiah 29:11, girlfriend. He has GOOD plans for you and for your little one!

((Hugs))
