Half way!!

That's right, I am officially half way in my pregnancy. Last Friday we had our big ultrasound. It was so amazing, my favorite part was the little baby hands. We found out it is a boy! Which we are both so excited about. I had hot coco just before the appointment to try and see if that would wake him up. Well it sure did. He was moving all over the place. The ultrasound tech was great she sent us home with like 12 photos, 4 is the norm.

We have committed to the name Ezra Ray Davis. I love it! Ezra of the bible was a total kingdom stud, He studied God's laws diligently and taught them with accuracy. God used Him to do some pretty amazing things! I pray that our Ezra will have the same hunger and love for God and his word, and teach it with accuracy. And that He would do crazy things for God.

I Felt Ezra move for the first time two nights ago after I had some spicy cheese dip. It was so amazing! I have never experienced anything like it. To know a little life is living in me is so cool and crazy. I have felt him since then each day. usually following eating or having coffee or cider. I love this part of pregnancy. There is no denying that I am a mom now. :)

He can also hear our voices now. So I talked to him all the time. Chris does too, once I say "hey have you said hi to your baby today" It is so sweet when he talks to my tummy. I love my husband!!

Parenting books are on the way. Chris and I had very different childhood experiences. Neither were what we want for Ezra. So now that He will be coming in 20 weeks We are beginning to feel the urgency to prep as much as we can in how we want him to grow up. My promise form God is that we would be the Firsts to raise a Godly family in my life. This is an honor and a huge responsibility, we can only see this come true through Christ and relationship with him, through studying the Word and wise council from our leaders. So it begins!

Welp that is all now from this soon-to-be-mama!

Expecting Baby Davis

Yep that is right my blog will now be transforming into my pregnancy journal!
Well I am ten weeks and two days pregnant, as they say it in the doctors office, ten two. My body is already changing so much. Although only my closest friends can tell that I have gained any weight I sure do notice. The best indicator for this aside from the scale, was the fact that I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and the same dress that I wore a year prior to another wedding I decided to wear to this one. I could barely get it to zip my husband kept saying can you suck I replied I am sucking in. The entire wedding it felt like I was being suffocated. So you see this is a great sign that I am developing well.

The baby is developing well also. We have heard his/her heart beat already and seen the tiny baby that looks like a pickle on wheels. According to all the books he/she is the size of a quarter now. I am at a loss as to how someone so small can make me so hungry, and tired.

Not much prepping outside of mental has happened yet at our house. We are going to pick up our hand-me-down crib on Wednesday. We also have two outfits for the little one hanging in our room one for grandpa and one for grandma. Marty and Beth have been so great. Not only did we receive those little gifts, I also was given a maternity outfit and Beth is making a baby blanket.

All of these things help make the pregnancy feel real. I am however, as crazy as it sounds, looking forward to getting bigger. I am sure that once the bump shows I will be looking forward to it leaving lol. That is how life works I guess.

Well much more will come as we await our beautiful Baby Davis.
