Family Update



Just in case you missed our big announcement on Facebook, here it is.

It's been a whirlwind of a few months. We went back home to NC for two and half weeks for Christmas. I got my wisdom teeth taken out a week later after we returned home. Then a week and a half after getting my wisdom teeth taken out, we left for a church planting conference in Florida for a few days. Oh, and we also found out I was expecting baby Parnell #4. :)

I started feeling sicker a little earlier than normal so we wondered about our dates. We were scheduled an ultrasound and we got to see our little baby at just 6 weeks, 1 day. Our wonderful OB was even able to let us hear the heartbeat through the ultrasound machine and noted the babies heart beat had probably just begun. We were blown away (yet again) by another baby in the womb. It's so crazy to remember seeing Elizabeth, Hannah, and Micah at this stage in their development. Just a quarter of an inch little person then, a person whose personhood is dismissed by so many in this world, now look like these sweet faces.



And then to think of how their bodies and faces now will mature into adulthood. The full development of human beings is amazing, and I marvel at the miracle taking place inside me. Lord willing, come September we will have another sweet face to add to this picture. We are so incredibly excited!
