Our New Addition

It is with exciting and overjoyed hearts
that we announce...

Baby #4
coming March 14th!

To say that we were surprised is a bit of an understatement.
Truly, this sweet gift was not on our radar and that is why we are overjoyed 
knowing God has plans for this ever-growing Maiocca family.

I am officially 12 weeks this past Friday and 
we will be finding out what we are having! :-))
I have to know. I've already had enough surprises.

I have to say, the last 8 weeks has been utter torment.
Whoever created the tern "morning sickness" apparently was a man.
I have been struck down with "morning sickness' 24/7 for the past 8 weeks.
Sleeping on the bathroom floor became my new bed. Ugh!

Someone said that the "morning sickness' gets worst with every pregnancy.
I am here today to say,
Yep, I agree.

With all that being said, I am excited that I believe I am finally moving out of this sick-stage of pregnancy.
(I never thought I would see the day.)
I have had several good days scattered around and I am hopeful I will be normal SOON!
Whatever "normal" is: I want it!

I'm excited again to start writing about my Uganda trip as my heart LONGS daily
to be in that country with those beautiful people.
Something happened to me while I was there and I truly will never be the same.
Sometimes I just sit and look at all my pictures and I can still smell the smells, hear the sounds,
see the big brown eyes filled with tears, feel their hands holding mine.
I left my heart in Uganda and I pray for the day we return.

But until then, I will continue to unfold the memories from my heart onto paper.
I will continue to relive those precious moments and treasure all the memories
and share them with you the best I could.
They are simply priceless.

But first things first... 

Entering second trimester strong and well. 

I'm praying everyday, this will be the day.

Stay tuned...

"For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made"
Psalm 139:13-14

Thank you Jesus! ♥
