July 4th Photo Shoot

My parents were in town for the holiday, so we wanted to let them “meet” their latest grandchild today via ultrasound (since we’d never really had a first one but for a quick picture at 7weeks). And boy did we get a show! “Squishy” was flipping, hiding, waving and even got the hiccups. I can’t lie, in between giggling at the images up on the screen, I was so emotional. It’s really happening, it is REALLY our turn to welcome our own little one into the world. We have waited, cried, prayed and had our hearts broken so many times. The same bible verse kept running through my mind…

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. – 1 Samuel 1:27 (NIV)


Here are the pictures and video of our blessing. You can click the images to see/save a larger version!

Praying you have a wonderful 4th of July celebrating! We have so much to celebrate this year …

<3 Tara (& Oliver)
