OH MY!

well... i'm still growing! yay! and at our scan of 25 wks last week so was our little one.
she does cheekily keep trying to make early appearances... i'm hoping that she's getting her wild side out of the way while she is 'womb-bound' ... then the perfect little angel that i know she is can be forever present from when shes born... over ambitious??? ha!

here's a blurry one.
and a bit of chubby cheeks on that face of hers...



i'm in love.

................................

in other news...

After a few weeks of no computer internet access *just phone* ...

& SOOOOOO happy here.

i can't wait to sit and write again... for now though.. a sunday afternoon sleep is in order...

*snoooorr*

Those were my favorite couple of months during pregnancy: belly big enough to be cute, but still able to put on my own socks :)

She's beautiful! And you have an adorable bump :)

I greatly anticipate your words xx

Thank you so much for sharing those beautiful pictures - blurry maybe, but so beautiful. God bless and keep you both in His faithful tender care.

Jill, I dont know why I just found your blog. I saw your youtube video praising God after losing Max featuring "Desert Song" just shortly after losing my second baby to first trimester miscarriage. What an amazing encouragement! And why didnt I realize a woman who could say such promising things about our Lord and SING them not long after that would have a blog? Lets just say I'm glad I found it now. I actually keep a blog also and linked to that video just about a year ago as we walked through that painful time and thinking about two glory babies who will only know heaven.

I too am expecting no. 32 weeks and thanking God for every passing day as I get closer to holding our little girl.

I will be following your story (now that I've found this blog) and praying for your special little girl as well.

I sat front and center at Hillsong's concert at the Passion 2010 conference this past year, wounds of losing another baby still fresh on my heart and I heard Brooke sing the words, "I know I'm filled to be emptied again, this seed I've received I will sow" with tears streaming down my face thinking of you and your loss and the hope that God fills us to empty us and I was grateful to be used.

Thanks for being used, too.

oh Jill! I am soo thrilled to read your latest posts!!! You were the missing piece in my puzzle, till now! Lemme explain.. my daughter, Naomi, was stillborn at 34 weeks in Feb this year and gosh, it was such a devastating time for us.. suffered a ruptured placenta and i almost went home with her too, but Daddy God was gracious to preserve mine, while He chose to take her home.. Since then, we struggled too, and mostly, surrounded ourselves with stories of how Abba has restored ALL! and ALL i heard! of a child or children! And faith grew in my heart.. i knew it would be our turn soon.. and yours too. :) You were in my prayers much.. and now i read of His faithfulness!!! Indeed, no fear to come near you, fear-free, faith-filled! He rebukes the devourer for our sakes so that he shall not destroy the fruit of our ground, neither shall our fruit fall from the vine before the time in the field, Mal 3:11. Amen amen! Rejoicing with you sister!!! Oh, and i'm pregnant already too, forgot to mention!! 16 weeks and counting!!! Praise Jesus!!!

Sorry for bad English, I hope it to understand something.

I spent all day reading your blog and following all its history. I can tell you is an example and that his testimony of faith and trust in God built me ... After hours and hours here reading every word, I can only say that God planted a big love in my heart for you and your family here and that of Brazil, will be praying that the Lord will watch over and bless your life and especially his beloved little girl. It is your well-deserved present.
On another occasion I want to tell a beautiful story of faith, struggles and victories!
I had never heard of you, I saw your video yesterday and today I can say I love you with the love of Christ ... God is not surprisingly wonderful?

praise God! for your blessing that's almost due. Truly God shows his favor in tremendous ways and may he continue to overflow in the life of your family, ministry and the body of Christ.

your testimony is an encouragement to me to know that God has my back and that at times, the schemes of the enemy can thwart us in another direction to think that God is not there...but only His word and His love reassures us of His unfailing promise.

God Bless to you sister in Christ!

Hey Jill,

How is your little girl doing? Hope is everything is fine! Remember you wrote a blog post in August you'd be addressing some comments? I'd LOVE any insight... If you're up to it I'd love to hear some more about 'being on the other side' versus still waiting on a miracle (which I am)... Just giving you a little reminder since you probably won't have any time when the little bub gets here.
