october has come... the month that will change our lives forever. we are expectant, excited, and... a little stressed. but the days of anticipation are filled with all sorts of preparations, classes, doctor's appointments, apartment settling-in (pics to come) & pre-baby dates with friends. my official due date is october 17th.

we want to thank all of you for your prayers for us & for my dad during this time. God strengthens us day to day, though it is so hard. he is doing well, but the chemo treatments become more difficult each time, so please keep him in prayer - that the chemo will be doing its work on the cancer & for his immune system to stay up. God is the One who heals, & He uses many means for that, so we continue to pray in faith.

i will leave you with a 38-week picture:
