Meet Israel



We had our first ultrasound today and IT'S A GIRL!!!
This is Israel (you can just call her "Rae" or "Rael" for short). She is healthy and beautiful. I can't tell you just how thrilled we are - I am crying as I type this. Never in my life could I describe the amazement of watching your unborn child on a TV screen, moving around, sucking her thumb, looking healthy and strong. It was absolutely breathtaking. I can't even begin to imagine the wonder of finally holding her in my arms.
Thank you, Jesus, for our beautiful daughter and for keeping her healthy and protected. We are amazed and so thankful.

P.S. Look - she has JP's nose!!!

Truly a wondrous miracle and I can't wait to meet this precious child.

Not only does she have JP's nose-she sucks her thumb like he used to! He's gonna kill me.......

Love you

She is adorable! Cannot wait to meet her in person. Finally, I have a friend having a girl. You will love it. Today, Emma was going out with her dad to the grocery, even at 21 months she insisted on getting dolled up to go with him. Girls are the best!

I would have a backup boys name just in case. I am only speaking from experience! You are going to love her so much more than you can ever imagine.
