Big News!

Yesterday, we got to hear the most amazing sound in the whole world. Our baby's heartbeat!

I have to admit, I am super-paranoid and didn't want to share our good news until we reached this milestone. I mean, I took 4 pregnancy tests just to make sure I wasn't seeing double (lines, that is!).

I was so nervous while the nurse searched for the heartbeat with the dopler wand. We kept hearing mine and she explained that wasn't it as it was too slow. Of course, the longer it took to find baby's, the faster mine got! And then... there it was! like a little train engine going 170 bpm! What a miracle!

Of course, our parents and family already know. Here is a video from the night we told my mom and Eli's parents. Our brothers both already knew, so Nick was filming it!

My due date is October 13th - which is actually Nick's birthday - and we are so excited to be in this journey towards parenthood!!!

Book Review: The Screwtape Letters

The Screwtape Letters The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Didn't realize how controversial this one was. Especially the extra segment "Screwtape's Toast" in the back where the demons take credit for a lot of today's "social justice" movements and even equal-opportunity education in the public school systems. The demons' goals are simple: to get Christians to add something to their Christianity (i.e. Christianity AND Politics, Christianity AND Economics, etc.).

 C.S. Lewis' point is a familiar one: "MERE CHRISTIANITY" is the answer. No additives please.
