"One of the greatest things in human life is the ability to make plans. Even if they never come true - the joy of anticipation is irrevocably yours. That way one can live many more than just one life."

Happiness Is...

Okay, so this has nothing to do with Ireland, but...

There is one thing that makes even going to Ireland pale in comparison. 

I got to see my new baby today!

Kathy was sweet enough to let me tag along to her first midwife appointment and right there before my eyes was our new baby! :)  We could see her (yes, I'm thinking girl and just going with it) tiny little head, tummy and little arm and leg buds. Most amazing of all was watching her minute yet beautiful little heart beating away. Yes, at 9 1/2 weeks old we could see the fluttering of her tiny heart. God is so amazing. She must be a strong girl because we were able to hear her heartbeat as well, which the midwife was not expecting and usually isn't possible until around 12 weeks. Today is happy Grammy day. 

I'm in love again - God is good. Thanks Kathy!
