Growing Goodson's

There were a few different ideas I had in mind when I was thinking of a name for my blog. Seth and I spent a whole night discussing the very subject. I wanted to pick a name that had meaning that said something about me, about my life, my God, and about my family. What better way to describe life and all that goes with it than growing, you are constantly growing, everyone is constantly - Growing Goodson's - it's perfect.

I pray that there isn't a day that goes by that I do not grow in some way shape or form. Growing is an important part of life. I think that growing spiritually is (or should be) the most important aspect in any one's life. But growing emotionally and physically are important as well. I guess growing physically all depends on ones age and stage in life sometimes tis not always a good thing. But sometimes it is......

I've been doing a lot of growing lately......




Physically.......




Have you guessed yet......




I'm pregnant!



That's right the Goodson's are growing in! I am now 13 weeks pregnant. I'm NOT on bed rest and I'm traveling to see my family next week. AHHHH!! I still can't believe it. There is a whole story that I am going to have to tell you.....but I don't have time right now.....we still don't have a computer at home. Give me 2 more weeks and I should be back on a regular basis (if anyone is still our there) I just couldn't wait any longer to tell you. Oh and I got belly pictures I'll have to show you. I'm already pretty big. It's crazy! Or maybe I'm not that big I just feel it.

Oh Seth, Tarah, and Jericho - CONGRATULATIONS! We're thinking of you and praying for a smooth ride! And yes Tarah, I can imagine that the 4th time around you'll be showing at 13w. I'm sure next time around it's gonna be a "quick and generous expansion" for me. :)

Hi Tarah,

I figured this would be a good time to jump in with commenting to congratulate you and introduce myself. I'm Lindsay - Charis' step-sister. I prayed for you and your family a couple of years ago when Gideon was in the hospital (Charis and Heath would send emails to family and friends asking for prayer). I saw your blog linked from Charis' a couple of months ago and have been following ever since. I hope having a complete stranger read your blog doesn't completely creep you out :). Anyway, congratulations! That is wonderful news.

I had a feeling it wouldn't be long! Congratulations! I pray that you don't ever have to be on bed rest, as I can imagine it would be much more difficult now with Jericho to care for. I can't wait to see the belly pics!

Congratulations Tarah! Growing with the second is a lot faster. Just ask me. We are praying for you guys! Enjoy IL and baby Sam

I've not been in blog land much for the past 4 weeks. And when I passed you in church this past Sunday, I did think to myself...boy she looks pregnant. (And I'm sure the belly is not from eating too much junk food.) And I'm so happy to read that in fact you are!!!

Hi, I haven't commented in a very long time but still occasionally pop by your blog. I just wanted to say congratulations on the baby! I am so happy for you and pray God's blessings on you throughout this pregancy!

WOW Tarah, that is wonderful... congratulations!!
A couple weekends ago when we were chatting about pregnancy, I was wondering too if you were... nothing like asking someone and putting them in an arkward place if they are trying not to tell... glad I didn't ask :)
Hope and pray everything continues to be smooth sailing!!!
