New Page Element - Baby Beat

This post is mainly for our family members who are miles upon miles away and unable to be around for the developments of our new Little Baby Hines. My last appointment was November 8th and my midwife told me I could bring in something to record the baby's heartbeat, since she knows our family is all in Michigan. So, the only one we had was a small microcassette recorder. So the sound is a little bad, but it still captures the new little life that God has created. I'm not even half way through with this experience, but even to this point I am amazed at our God's great design and that we have the awesome privilege of seeing it first hand. I am reminded that it is all of God's work and not man's! I also liken this to our call as Christians to be witnesses. It is not what we say that saves men, that is God's doing. We are just great recipients of His grace and we are allowed to be a part of the process that God has planned to call men to Himself. What a great and glorious God we serve!!

The link to the right will hopefully open up and reveal the little recording I made. Enjoy family and good buddies! May I also add that this would have not been possible except for the help of TJ's MP3 player that was able to change my recording from cassette to digital. May it also be known that his MP3 player surpasses my ipod with its unique recording ability! Thanks TJ!

(Also, if you are having struggles opening this, I am a little techy challenged . . . but I did my best. Please let us know, so we can hopefully correct the problem! Thanks!)

This was fantastic! I almost cried. I always cry when I first hear my babies' heartbeats. =) Something hilarious happened when we were listening...the file came up on itunes for us and the very next file in our music library is "For Unto Us a Child is Born" from the Messiah! So we heard the heartbeat and then the music began. We laughed and laughed! =) We love you and miss you guys!=) Say hello to Big B Hines and Big G Hines for us. Tell Big G she better be ready for a big demotion when Big B comes along!

I love the heartbeat!!! It's so amazing! Are you guys going to find out what you're having or be surprised? Nate actually has brothers and one younger sister - the picture of me with my sister-in-laws is actually his brothers wives (that was poor grammar!). Hope you're feeling well and enjoying this second trimester - it's the best one! :-)
