First Kick

Alex got to feel Natalie kick today! I started feeling her little flutters in the middle of my 14th week and have been eagerly awaiting the day when Alex could share in the excitement, too. It's so amazing how God designed the whole pregnancy process. I mean, how crazy is it that our bodies were made to create new life and that somehow all the nutrients we eat and the vitamins we take and our dna all works together (I'm sure there's a whole lot more to it than that!) and somehow a little human being is made. Looking at our first ultrasound picture at 11 weeks and comparing it to the pictures at 17 weeks is incredible. So many changes take place in such a short time.

I've been thinking about Psalm 139:13, "For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made" and Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you." I'm full of wonder at God's love for us. He already knows this little girl that I am so eager to meet and get to know. With His grace, my prayer is to be the best mom possible to her and build a relationship that will weather any storm and last a lifetime. God already has a plan for her life. He knows all the little details like whose nose and eyes and smile she will have. That's just amazing! How great is our God?!
