Trucks and Tutus!

We found out Tuesday that we are having a girl and a boy! We are so grateful that they are growing and thriving. My Dr. said complications with twins tend to surface at 20 weeks, and thankfully everything looks great so far! The pics of our little ones...

Baby A, our sweet girl

A 4D pic of her :) So in love with that precious face!
Baby B, our precious boy
Another view of our little man from the back, love those ears!!!! (He was covering his face in his 4D pic, so I thought this one was a better view.)

Baby girl weighs 12 oz., and baby boy is at 10 oz. Our girl will most likely be the oldest (haha)--she is closest to my cervix and will come out before her brother. We had a blast watching them during the one point her little booty kept pressing down on his chin, and he was constantly moving around to get away from her hiny. I told her that was the only time it was ok for her to push and shove on her brother, haha! I just love that they have each other in there...I can't wait to see how they interact and play together. The ultrasound tech said our girl had long legs, and his legs were on the shorter side. Does anyone know why we would get a kick out of that?!?! :)

Thank you for all the prayers for my health and our precious babies!

Blue or Pink or Both?

Tomorrow we find out if Baby A and B are boys or girls or both. We are so excited to see them again--8 weeks has felt like forever! Adam and I call the ultrasounds "Watson Family Time." While we know the babies are with us all the time, we just love seeing them, talking to them and watching what they are doing. I can't believe we are already nearing the 20 week mark at the end of this week. It has truly flown by. Here's to more Watson Family Time in the morning!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him."
1 Samuel 1:27

Coming this spring, life at the our house will radically change as we welcome two babies into our family! We found out in July that we were expecting, and a few weeks later, we were thrilled to hear there were TWO little babies in my belly. I can't wait to meet them!
My sweet parents have offered to buy our cribs, so we went crib shopping with them...we are standing by our favorite, but I'm ordering it in a different color (antiqued soft white).
My mom loves to talk to the babies. She has done this since the day we found out I was pregnant. I love to talk to them too, I just think it is hilarious when she does it. I can't wait to see my parents with our kiddos!
The love of my life, trying out the rocker we liked. How this man has nurtured me these last 3 months! My sickness gave laziness and "dead to the world" a whole new meaning. I have joyfully been in survival mode, making it to work and back home to nap in the midst of daily migraines, nausea and a sinus infection that won't let go. But no complaints here--what a thrill it is to be sick for these two. Take whatever you need from me, kids!
Adam has been amazing. I LOVE YOU!!
Today we are heading out to buy the cribs and furniture. Crazy. This week I am 15 weeks along. I am due in March (18th or 19th) but my doctor said he will be happy if we make it to February.

I still can't believe this has happened. After years of asking the Lord for a child and finally surrendering that desire to whatever He had planned, we are here. In awe. Blessed beyond measure...beyond what we could ever have imagined. God has taught us so much about walking with Christ. We struggled with understanding why we weren't getting pregnant...we searched His Word for some sort of promise or encouragement concerning children. Know what we found? Promises and encouragement concerning HIM. Jesus. Our All in All. And we learned, month by month, that our lives on this earth weren't about getting what we wanted, even if that desire was something holy and good like children. Our lives should be about walking with Jesus and making Him known. We decided to say "Lord, we will serve You and love You for the rest of our lives, whether or not this journey leads us to kids. Our life may look different than we hoped, but our life here on earth isn't about us." I doubted I could ever bear children. There was no explanation medically. No reason for us to take this long. We became passionate about adoption and began to look into agencies near us. But what guarantee did we have that adoption would bring us our child? None. No assurance in the circumstance, whether getting test results from a doctor or researching adoption.

Our assurance was and is only in Jesus.

It is all about HIM.

To God be the glory.


This weekend we had a blast going with Dick (our dear friend, mentor and boss:) to see Grease downtown. We started with a dinner at the Barbeque Inn which was delicious! It is an adorable restaurant that has had the same menu since it opened in early 1970's. The decor is the same, the waitresses dress the same...and the food is incredible! I had chicken fried steak that seriously rocked my face off so much I ate almost the entire thing. Delish.

Taylor Hicks played the role of Teen Angel in Grease and he was awesome! His stage presence was great, and his voice fit the song "Beauty School Dropout" to a tee. What a night! Thank you so much Dick for taking us back a few decades. We loved every minute!

We're Back...

After a seriously long blog break, we are back! A busy spring turned into an even busier summer, and my focus went to my family, friends visiting in town, the church, and of course most of all, these two...

That's Sick

A day after I told my friend Nicki I hate throwing up, I woke up extremely nauseous and proceeded to throw up everything in my body. Go figure. A doctor's visit, 2 shots and one very patient husband later, I am feeling better but still really weak. I hate stomach viruses! Yuck! Thankfully, Adam is not sick, and my fever has broken. There's some nasty stuff floating around out there, so keep washing your hands, friends! I'm off to drink some more Gatorade...

Valentine's Week

So I have to admit, I am crazy about Valentine's Day. Our first date was February 14, 2001, so the date holds a really special memory for us. I had given up on Adam ever pursuing me--we had been friends for almost a year, and although I knew I was crazy about him, I was determined to never let him know my feelings. I figured if he wanted me, he could come get me without any persuasion! After months of praying, he asked me for our first date, which ended up being Valentine's Day. An RA at the time, I was on duty that night in the dorm, so Adam brought me dinner from Waco--a roast (that his mom had made, hilarious!), rice and green beans. We reheated it in my dorm room microwave, ate dinner, watched Ed (anyone remember that show?) and he held my hand for the first time. Ahhhhh, heaven on earth!

I will never forget walking down my dorm room hallway to let him in the dorm. The Adam I knew had long hair (to his chin, shaved underneath, and interesting style for my punk rocker). That night, he had cut his hair just for our date! It was adorable (I admit, I squealed when I saw much for not letting on...but hey, he had already asked me out, right?) Anyways, he stood there holding a box of chocolates and three red roses. I was tickled he got me anything on our first date, but I wondered, why three red roses? Why not one, or a dozen? Three? Later that evening he gave me a card that I will cherish it he said I might be wondering why he chose three roses...he said they symbolized the three of us in this new relationship--him, me and the Father. I remember my knees weakened when I read his sweet message. Seriously? Is he really this amazing? I was in a happy state of awe and shock.

10 months later on December 14th, Adam asked me to be his wife. Because the 3 roses had been special to us, Adam designed my ring to reflect that first night. My engagement ring was a solitaire, symbolizing God. When we got married, my wedding band placed a diamond on each side, standing for each of us, with God at the center of our marriage.

We were married the following June, and I have loved every minute! Our tradition on Valentine's is to eat a dinner at home together, just like we did that first night. Sometimes I will cook a roast, although this year, Adam wanted to give me a break from cooking so we picked up BBQ. Sweet man. Add a mattress weekend to the mix and I call that a great Valentine's.  We stretched it out and celebrated all week long, ending with a date night out last night.  Love you, honey!  Thanks for a great week.

Please Pray for Harper...

A dear blog friend had her precious baby girl Harper today.  After trying for two years to get pregnant, Harper was truly a miracle and gift from God.  She is now in critical condition, and as you can imagine, Kelly and Scott (the parents) are in the midst of a terrifying trial.  Would you lift them up tonight and tomorrow?  You can read Kelly's story at her blog:  Thank you for praying for this sweet family...
