amazingly, we pulled out of our parking garage at 10:00 and were pulling in our driveway before 11:00. all that city less than an hour from my front door. i should go there more...
thursday morning we awoke and took a family trip to the ob/gyn to see these:
so, this advent, we are expecting a boy. i guess there is no mistake about that! i won't expect him to be shy, that's for sure.
after finding out this awesome and exciting news, we took our other little boy to a local farm to cut down our christmas tree.
we got ourselves a nice white pine, that is already sitting in our family room, strung with lights and hung with little reminders of advents and christmases and births and expectations past, ones that have made us who we are this year. and who we are is people who walk in darkness, but who have seen a great light, and who are expecting great things. we are expecting people. we are advent people. we are pulsing with the rhythm of hope. come, baby boy, come.
