Grace, Noah, and the Ark

First of all, thank you SO very much for your comments and emails. My heart swelled with every word of celebration, encouragement, and prayer that you offered. It has been very humbling and exciting to have so many people share in our joy.

Several people had asked who took our picture. The incredible photographer (and editor, as there was a huge newspaper stand between us and the kids that she photoshopped out!) is Heather Knowles. Her business is called Sprouts by Heather. We were already doing a family photo shoot, so I asked if we could do a special picture to share the news with family.

In other news, I am thrilled to tell you that I am practically done with Caroline's adoption video!! I'm just waiting on a few digital files of our new family pics, and then I'll upload it. So keep checking back!!

I am working on another post with some updates. Between the pregnancy, my immune issues, and the video, you'll understand why I've been MIA. Oh, and I can't forget that I'll be launching a new version of the blog with a new address: www.gazingupward.com. I hope to have it live and switched over to the new URL in early December. Fun times!

In the meantime, here is a little video of Grace from a few weeks ago. Her class has been studying about Noah and the ark, and how Noah obeyed God. On the way home from school, she proceeded to tell me the full story with all kinds of cute details. Of course, when I got home and whipped out the camera, she had to be begged. and prompted. and bribed. (just kidding, the candy was from Halloween.) But she finally retold some key parts of the story. I even caught a couple of her funny facial expressions.

Um, I think you should post a video EVERY day. Kidding, of course, but that was so precious. I can tell she likes Noah and pink!
