I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

Little Alien In My Tummy
We’re pregnant! We went to our first doctor’s appointment today. Everything is going great. I am 6 weeks and 2 days along in the pregnancy (which really means the baby is 4 weeks old). We actually have another appointment the day we leave for our hike on the Appalachian Trail just to make sure everything is okay before our adventure. I am a little nervous about how I am going to feel during the hike. I am already tired all the time. On Sunday I took a 3 hour nap after church and still slept through night! The cooking thing is getting hard. Everything makes me want to vomit, especially raw meat. Unfortunately, my symptoms are going to be at their peak during the time we are going on our hike. Other than that, we are very excited about the little alien growing inside of me.
The picture below shows how we told our families the "big news". We told them on Labor Day and decided to make t-shirts. In light of the holiday, my shirt said "Labor Day...May 2009" with a picture of a women who is in labor. Byron's shirt has picture of different animal fetuses in different stages and the last one being a human. He changed the word "human" to "Gehrig". His was a little more subtle than mine. There were many hugs and even happy tears. My sisters are very excited to be aunts!
