11 Weeks!

Look at the size of our little baby...it is now the size of a fig! Growing everyday! :)
Each week feels so long, but as it is hard to believe I am only 2 weeks away from being through the first trimester! It is absolutely amazing to read about the growth and developments of Baby Jenkins. This week baby is just over 1 1/2 inches long and is now almost fully formed. His/her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear and bones are beginning to harden. Absolutely amazing! I have a precious child growing inside of me, many times it seems so unreal (especially because I can't see baby yet, or haven't listened the the heartbeat), but God is creating a beautiful and unique person inside of me. I praise Him everyday for this precious gift! Wow, I don't know how people don't believe in God, especially if they have been blessed with a child. He is knitting this baby together with His own two hands. He is the Master Creator!

So sweet! God's design really is a amazing and it is so exciting to think that your little baby already has tiny fingers and toes!
It's been fun looking at your recent pictures. I'm so glad you guys got to get away! :)

So exciting Ash & Gabe! The little babe is just going to be getting bigger and bigger and soon enough you'll start to feel those little feet kicking!
