It sounds cheesy, but I really feel like the Lord spoke to our hearts about having a boy. Out here at Bethel, I went to a prophetic prayer group with a friend and people who had never met me before and didn't know I was pregnant prayed for me and felt like Holy Spirit impressed the color blue on their hearts. I remember thinking, "it's because Puffin is a boy." That might seem strange to some people, but the Lord loves to connect and speak with us on a personal level and learning to hear His voice is a thrilling experience. God is FUN! And he loves to give us good gifts!!!
Having a boy is doubly rewarding since a boy cousin was just born last month! Amy and Andrew (Amy is Paul's sister) just had Josiah Paul a month ago. Also, our cousins Paul and Lindsey Cain are having a baby boy in December and friends Josh and Jen Dotzler are having their 2nd little boy in January. Puffin is going to have lots of friends and cousins!
Finally, I have been feeling much better and even have been having some cravings. I'm on the food bandwagon full-force and looking forward to living up the "eating for two." I seriously, have not craved sweets this pregnancy (good-bye Starbucks drinks :( ). So far I am in love with: popcorn chicken (from KFC), pizza, apples, goldfish crackers, pretty much carbs in general and ANY excuse to douse something in ketchup and mustard. I generally avoid: SOY SAUCE- (typing it makes me gag), garlic, spaghetti, steak, and strong tasting ethnic foods.
