house stomach [baby]

ultrasound - waving & foot
[20 weeks & a little wave]

in cambodia the word for "pregnant" literally translates as "to have a house stomach", which seems pretty charming, indeed.

we are excited & nervous & thrilled & thankful that amanda's [rapidly expanding] belly has become a home for this little person & we would love your prayers for his/her safe arrival sometime around january 29!

What a lucky little baby this will be to have you for parents. Funny - my word verivication for this post is "porents" (so close to parents.)

Yay! The baby looks happy and cozy to me :) We will keep you in our prayers. I cannot imagine being pregnant in Cambodia. It's been a rainy September and I'm sweltering here in Vancouver!
