We're Preggers!

So on top of everything else going on we are also pregnant!  Wahoo!  I'm due on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving.  I am hoping the baby comes the week before so we can enjoy Thanksgiving at home, Tyler is hoping it comes late so it can be a December baby just like him.  We'll see who wins.

I'm soo glad the first trimester is over.  I was nauseous and exhausted pretty much the entire time.  I've noticed that I have a stomach for a little bit more now but am still battling a cough from allergies, so once that's done we'll see for sure.

We have no idea what Baby G (that's what we're calling it) will be.  I think it's a boy and Tyler hopes it's a boy, although everyone else seems to think it's a girl (or really wishing that upon us because Tyler is terrified of having a girl).  I will be happy no matter what - if it's a boy my nephew Kade will finally have a boy cousin, if it's a girl then they have waaaay cuter clothes.  Our Doctor will not check until I am 19 or 20 weeks so we have to wait until July to find out if we are having a Phoebe or  Phoebo.

This week I am 15 weeks and Baby G has begun to make its appearance.  I have quite the little bump now.  I officially bought a few pieces of maternity clothes because my current clothes are getting a bit snug.  Anyways, here's a photo so you can see...

You're Doing What?

A week ago Tyler and I moved to Round Rock to be a part of a Church Planting Residency at Redeemer Round Rock.

Over the last few months I've gotten several questions about - what is church planting? Or what will y'all be doing?  Well, the best way for me to describe it is through the video I pasted below.

About six months ago Tyler showed me this video.  At first I was like, you want me to watch a 15 minute video?? What?  I'm tired.  Anyways, I watched it and was completely inspired by what Soma does.  They are truly living the gospel.  What they are doing in Washington is what we will be doing in Central Texas.  I am excited and scared for the next chapter of our life. Doing this.  Living as a community on mission.  But I believe in it.  I feel that as Jesus called Peter out of the boat and to trust him in Matthew 14:29, that is what he's calling Tyler and I to do.  Get out of the boat and trust.  And that's exciting.
