I found out on Oct. 6 that I was going to be a dad when Erica surprised me with a bib that read " I love daddy." She surprised me big time because I wasn't expecting it at all. Actually what happened was I was asked by Ryan to meet with him at church because he "wanted to talk to me about something." When I got there he was on the phone so I kept waiting for him to get off patiently. By the time he was finished the girls small group, led by Erica and Rebecca, was getting ready to start and Jordan and Ryann walked up to me and gave me the bib!
I couldn't believe it at first. I thought it was some kind of joke or something but when reality hit and I found out it was indeed the truth I didn't know how to act. We've been praying for this for so long it just touched me so deeply.
Here is a picture of the exact moment I found out. Rebecca was quick to snap that picture and I'm thankful she did!
I would also like to share with you a song by Matthew West that has really been close to me, even before I found out about this good news. When his new album came out and I was able to get a hold of it I decided this would be the song I would listen to when we finally did get pregnant and I would listen to it even when the baby was born. Needless to say it's been stuck in my head ever since finding out the good news.
You can listen to it below
The best part about this song is not only does it talk about a baby being born but it also relates to our relationship with the Lord.
We go to the doctor on Halloween for our first ultrasound. Needless to say I will be posting about what we find. Stay tuned, more to come!
God is soo good!
