Praise the Lord!

First of all, thank you to everyone who prayed for us today. Yesterday was scary and to be honest totally had me freaked out. I didn't sleep well and this morning I couldn't do anything except sit on the bed and listen to worship music. It was the only thing that could calm my nerves. I got to the doctors office and went in right away for the ultrasound. I laid on the bed and closed my eyes and prayed. My nurse found baby Andrews right away and before I could say amen she said "I found the heartbeat!" I wanted to stand up right then and do my happy dance. I looked at the screen and there was our little one, floating around with a perfect heartbeat. We sat there and watched it for a little bit. The baby was showing off..kicking the legs and moving the arms all around. Coolest thing ever to see. Ahh such a sigh of relief. Also, baby Andrews arrival date got pushed up today, 4 days ahead of schedule! 7 more months and we will be holding this little one!! Can't believe it. I wish I had a better picture from today but this is the best one I got. Its really hard to make out everything but here is baby Andrews...now the size of a green olive! (I think this picture looks like a baby monkey, lets hope next weeks picture is better!)
