being used to shine Jesus' light in the Marine Corps

My goal for 2012 is to blog more.... I'm hoping to have a post up soon of the babies and all the recent happenings in our neck of the woods... Till then it's off to changing diapers and feeding babies!!!
I'm a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, but most importantly a child of the King!
I am a Marine wife and currently live in California. My husband and I were called to this life after we were married in 2006. It's been a crazy roller coaster of events, but its been amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
Justin and I had our first baby in 2007 a mere 13 months after we were married!! We moved to California not long after. We've survived 2 deployments.
We recently found out we are expecting triplets! We are shocked, amazed, and feel so blessed.
Justin is an incredible husband and father. He has such an amazing heart and love for the Lord. He felt the Lord was calling him to the Marines in 2006 and after God softened my heart he enlisted. Our decision to enlist wasn't an easy one, but God has proven himself faithful time and time again through whatever is thrown our way. Justin deployed in March of 08 to Iraq. He served 7 months and returned to us just in time for the holidays in late October of 08. He also served in Afghanistan from March 10 to October 10. We are so thankful for God's protection during both deployments.
Elijah was our surprise baby! We found out we were pregnant only 5 short and blurry months after we were married. My pregnancy with him wasn't without complication. I spent many hours/days/weeks in the hospital with him. He came to us at 33weeks gestation. He was so healthy and strong. He weighed 3 pounds 12 ounces and was 16.5 inches long. He spent 2 weeks in the hospital and was released at 4 pounds! He has grown into such a fantastic little boy. He is very excited to be a big brother this summer and in fact tells almost anyone that he is going to have three babies!
Babies A B C are coming! We feel so blessed to be expecting them.
They were conceived in December 2010 after 2 years of struggling to get pregnant.
We are praying and anxiously waiting for their arrival sometime this summer!!
