Yes…He Has Spoken Again

by Kelly Crawford
Mommy! Mommy! Look at me–
I’ve only been here 9 short weeks!
I can move my fingers, and my toes,
You can even see my little nose!

How did I ever get in this place?
And how will I grow in this tiny space?
What? My Heavenly Father spoke
and just like that I began to grow?
Amazing! Thank you for giving God His way,
I know I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

We haven’t known very long that we were expecting…I didn’t even take a pregnancy test (I’ve done this a few times 😉 So after I noticed a significant event had not occurred for awhile ;-), I began to see the signs.

When wild horses can’t stop me from napping after lunch and I simply MUST have that Thick Burger I saw on the Hardees billboard (I am ravenous for fast food)…oh yeah…it’s a baby!

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

Congratulations Sweet Kelly! The more I have the more I realize what an honor this calling of “mamahood” is and the more I cherish these littles. May God bless you and keep you, and your precious little one!

Congratulations! I am 12 weeks pregnant. You had your last baby the day before I had mine (Haven). What!? No morning sickness? I have been so sick!

In Christ, Laura

YAY! I'm 4 weeks along with our precious R&R gift (my husband was home on deployment leave last month…) God saw fit to give us a precious light at the end of the deployment tunnel!
What a wonderful blessing…

Oh how wonderful!!!!! What a blessing, I can’t tell you how excited i am for you and I don’t even know you! LOL! Hopefully soon I can join the ranks of “Wives in waiting” 😉

Dani December 5, 2008 - 9:16 pm

Congrats!!! I am 4 weeks along with number 3, we are so excited. Not too many symptoms so far. 🙂

laura mouro December 5, 2008 - 10:02 pm

Kelly, I looked at your baby icon and it says 199 days and mine on my blog says 198. Are you sure you aren’t further along than 9 weeks? (I am finishing 12 this Sunday). Very coincidental that we had our last babies 1 day apart and are now due 1 day apart! 🙂


Fearfully and Wonderfully Made December 5, 2008 - 10:22 pm

Congratulations! And you have a beautiful family!

videogirl25 December 5, 2008 - 10:24 pm

Congratulations to all you expecting moms–that’s so exciting!

Word Warrior December 5, 2008 - 10:36 pm


Hmmmm…I’ve never been any good at these calculations. According to the date I *estimated* for the ticker, I would only be 10 weeks (so I was at least one week off!)

Am I just counting something wrong?

Chrys and Mike December 5, 2008 - 10:48 pm

oh, what a blessing! congratulations!!!

Congratulations! I really wish I could have more babies. I am so happy for you guys!

Mrs. Lady Sofia December 5, 2008 - 11:18 pm


I am SO happy for you Kelly, and I bet you are excited. Your excitement for your expected child has really been a vivid testimony to me about children. Maybe God will one day bless this “hard headed woman” (me) with a child?

This makes me want another one!
That’s just awesome!

Thickburgers? That’s hilarious!!!
I detested the smell of meat during my first trimesters. I craved things like fresh tomatoes and bananas. But with my third child I craved coffee -of all things and the doc said “no” so I drank decaf.

Vicki December 6, 2008 - 2:48 am

Huge congratulations to you and your family Kelly! I’m so happy for you, what a wonderful blessing.

Mrs. Anna T December 8, 2008 - 8:08 am

Oh Kelly! Wonderful, wonderful news! May your pregnancy be a blessed time for you all. Rest well! I remember those naps in my first trimester… now, a few weeks before expected due date, you’ll find me late at night scrubbing the kitchen taps or hanging laundry. :o)

“Congratulation Kelly!!! I’m so happy for you.

I just found out last week that I am pregnant with number five. My oldest just turned 6. My baby is only 8 months old, and so I was very very surprised to be pregnant so soon. I am resting in the fact that God knows exactly what He is doing, and that is so exciting. I can’t wait to meet my new baby. I’m due in August. This will be my second August birth in the Virginia heat and humidity :)”


Feminine Pursuits December 8, 2008 - 11:01 am

Hi Kelly,
I emailed you back.

Terri December 8, 2008 - 11:09 am

I saw the countdown on the side panel and wondered if I’d missed an announcement. Congratulations!

To God be all glory,

Michelle December 9, 2008 - 12:06 pm

YAY!!!!! Congrats! I’m very happy for you! Man I wish I could be popping out babies all the time! Too bad we gotta wait 9 months in between : ) …and longer if nursing…

babies are such blessings! My oldest just turned 3 yesterday, middle one is 1.5 and the youngest is almost 3 mo.

MamaArcher December 9, 2008 - 7:21 pm

Lindsay December 10, 2008 - 2:47 pm

Congratulations!! I am thrilled for you and your family. I bet your other children are so excited!

You are making me want another one. Haha. Don’t tell my dear husband, or he’ll clutch his chest and do his best Fred Sanford. 🙂
