THAT’S RIGHT. A baby Schultz is in the works. I am pregnant! Not too much morning sickness (ahem) has come my way, but the exhaustion has been killer. I have had to give myself permission to not do some of the pregnancy stuff I wanted – like journaling or weekly photos type things. And occasionally letting a day slip with no new post on the blog until this fatigue passes. (Thank you for your understanding! It is temporary!)

We are ready for the troubles of the first trimester to fade into oblivion so I can focus on doing the fun stuff to prepare for baby.

A Day in the Life of Rachel from Rachel Schultz

Looks like as a mom (mom!), I am diving right into sacrificing for our little one. The good news is it brings sweet communion with christ, who gave up his body for our sake.

We are so, so happy.
