Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain...Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

  1. oh wow! this is so awesome! you look amazing!

  2. My hips haven't gone back together, so I still have to wear my maternity shorts. At first, this was incredibly upsetting...then I realized that it is fantastic!! Gotta love a good elastic waistband :o) You look wonderful! So glad to hear that it is still going well.

  3. Hey Victoria! I saw your comment on my blog. I would love to talk to you about Babywise when you're ready. I'm not an expert at all, obviously, but I have found some good resources and have definitely seen the benefits of it.

    You look beautiful in your picture, and I'm glad your pregnancy is going well so far!
