One Month Away

We are officially one month away from Piper Eleanor’s due date! We are so excited and cannot wait to meet her! Chase packed his patience and my camera with him for an early morning venture to Town Creek Park in Auburn, Alabama. I am not a great model and anyone who has witnessed my pikiness with photo’s understands what he was up against.  So thankful he has patience with me! 🙂  He did such a great job and I cannot wait to share these with Piper one day. Here are a few of our favorites.

Showered with Love

This past month we have been showered with love and support by so many people! Chase and I are so excited and cannot wait for Piper to be here! Currently I am 35 weeks/one day and most definitely counting down the days until we meet our Sweet P! Huge thank you to all of those who came and showered us with love in Auburn and Decatur. We have the best family and friends ever! I cannot wait for our last two showers, one in Enterprise and one in Huntsville in September. Words cannot express how thankful we are for everyones support, encouragement and prayers during this special time in Chases and my life!




The Gender Reveal

Amongst the chaos of the last month and a half, God has given us something to laugh about. While we have been stressed and are mourning for our brother and friend, Myron West, as he battles for life, God has provided some humor. So here we go…. the big reveal.

We had an appointment scheduled in the states for a gender scan with my 20 weeks ultrasound, but our schedules changed and Chase would still be in Uganda during that time. We wanted to find out the gender of our baby together so we left early one morning and went to a clinic in Gulu town that our teammate, Holly, had taken a friend before and we knew they got the gender correct. With Myron’s advice, I drank a coke to make doubly sure the baby was moving to be able to see all parts.

Meet Our Goats {Katherine & Laura}

Chase and I were so excited when we found our current rental house in Uganda. One of the greatest parts of it is the yard! It is massive! The yard is quadruple the size of our old rental property in Uganda. One thing we did not realize is how darn fast the grass grows. We do not own a lawn mower, they barely exist in Uganda. But, there are a few “lawn maintenance” businesses in Gulu. They either have weed-eaters or slashers. It takes them all day to cut our yard and it gets expensive fast. So, Chase decided we needed goats and since I have a new found love for baby goats I was completely okay with the idea. I mean have you seen a baby goat?! They are adorableness wrapped in a bow!
