Week 12!

We saw our doctor for the second time on Thursday. The most exciting part was hearing our baby's heartbeat again! The doctor used a "doppler device" to magnify the sound -- which was a lot like a fast washing machine. :) We kept up our tradition by celebrating with custard after the doctor's appointment. (Culver's is right next door!)

Kim is still able to wear all of her normal clothes and doesn't look too different (at least from the front). In profile, however, you can see the start of a "baby bump."

Hurricane Ike Aftermath

We slept in our under-the-stairs closet during the storm.Our pine tree & whole back fence blew over.
We hired a crew to remove the tree.
They carefully removed the tree limb-by-limb.
It took almost 3 weeks for FEMA to pick up the brush pile.
We're just now compiling our pictures from Hurricane Ike to get ready for the insurance adjuster's visit. We were thankful to get our power back after 8 days without it. Some people in the area went more than 2 weeks without electricity! You'll notice that God placed the pine tree right BETWEEN our house and our neighbor's house with just one branch resting on the roof. What a blessing!
