Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

family pictures (by Elizabeth)

While traveling, Elizabeth often amuses herself by drawing...

Here are portraits of our family (drawn in early June):

Do note the variance in the shades and textures of our hair.
And she later added a beard to her Daddy's picture.

By then, she had decided that the Baby in my tummy was a BOY.

"That's why he has BLUE hair!"

About a week later, she came up with this one:

My arms, I was informed, are by my sides.
"That's why you can't see them."

There really are advantages to NOT having a DVD player in the car!

HEs a BOY!

Elizabeth is especially happy about the news. For the last several weeks, shes been talking about – and even trying to draw – a baby brother. (We would, of course, have been happy either way...)

Elizabeth was with us during the ultrasound. What an awesome experience! Our baby boy weighs about a pound – and is perfectly detailed!

Ive been meditating on Psalm 139:

You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mothers womb.

We saw the perfectly formed little heart, the perfectly formed little brain, the perfectly formed little stomach and little kidneys...

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;

We saw the perfectly formed little spine, the perfectly formed little ribs, the perfectly formed little arms and little legs...

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance...

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand...
