It's been an exciting spring! We've taken trips to WPB and Orange Beach, AL. Our visit with Chad and Sandy Dorsey in South FL was great. It was so much fun to catch up with them, and Noah even got to go on his first boat ride! He loved it. Noah also got to meet sweet Addie, and thought she was really pretty. :-) Since we left them in March, they have welcomed baby Dean into their family. We can't wait to meet him! Noah, my mom and I met Betsy, Weston and momma Black in Orange Beach, AL for a mother/daughter/baby boy week! It was a blast! Felt so good to soak up some sun and feel the ocean breezes. Noah LOVED it... I think we've created a beach bum! He especially enjoyed playing in the waves and finding beach shells. And... after practicing on the beach, he has started walking on his own!

We found out that we are having a sweet baby girl, but there will be only one baby. Baby B was devastatingly lost between 16-20 weeks. We have since grieved his/her loss and have tried to focus on our healthy daughter. What a blessing she will be! She is very active and is growing perfectly - all is expected to go well with her. This situation reminds me again and again of a song by Matt Redman: "Lord, you give and take away. You give and take away. My heart will choose to say, Lord blessed be your name..." He has blessed us beyond measure and we give him all the glory for our baby girl!
