Update on Melanie’s Baby

It’s time for an update on Nathan and Melanie’s little one. Melanie is now almost 36 weeks and doing well. A huge praise has been she is not on bed rest! Thank you so much for praying for her and Baby. Please continue to do so. Nathan and Melanie are very grateful.


“Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings” (Psalms 17:8).

  1. Oooo! The first picture, Melanie looks absolutely beautiful!!! So does Abby. She looks so sweet with the flower. Bethany looks in awe.

    Praise God that she’s doing so well!

    Oh, the verse you posted, it’s one of my memory verses. But I can’t always remember the reference.

    God bless! Rebecca K.

  2. This is such great news — thanks for the update and photos! Melanie is just beautiful and A and B are darling. I love A’s kitty (is it a) purse! I’ll bet both of them are looking forward to being big sisters! Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day — many mommies in your family to be grateful for!

  3. Still praying for both new mama’s and babies! Looking forward to hearing that they have arrived! 🙂

  4. Thanks for the updates on Melanie and Anna Marie. Melanie, are you sure you aren’t carrying twins?? Keeping everyone in my prayers–

  5. So glad that things are going well! I’m due with #7 in early June, between Anna Marie and Melanie. As I pray for my baby and upcoming labor, I’ll pray for them as well.

  6. Beautiful pictures of you all. So thankful that Melanie has had an easier pregnancy this time. Praying for a smooth and uncomplicated delivery and healthy baby.

  7. I’m so glad to know that Melanie and baby are doing well. It’s a real blessing to not have to be on bedrest! I had that experience with our 4th child. I was on bedrest from 30 weeks until 36 weeks with her and she arrived 4 weeks early but was a perfect, healthy baby.
    I will continue to pray for Melanie and baby M and will be looking forward to more updates! 🙂

  8. So pleased she is doing well. I am now 32 weeks along and so am drawn to pray for other pregnant mamas out there. Keeping Melanie and Anna Marie in my prayers.

  12. Melanie looks great! I’ve been checking here every day to see in there is any baby news. Meanwhile, I will continue to pray for your family.

  13. Thank you for the updates. So glad to know Melanie and baby are doing so well! We continue to pray for both Melanie and Anna Marie. That first picture of the 3 of you is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

    Many blessings

  14. Wow, it’s amazing how quickly time has flown by! I’m excited for both Melanie and Anna Marie, and so happy to see that Melanie’s pregnancy has gone so well! God is good! I’m expecting our 6th baby, which we learned this week, is a girl (our 4th). It seems like we just found out, but I am within a few days of being 20 weeks…already! Thanks for the updates!


  15. I spy rosy cheeked girlies and an impossibly happy momma!

    You cannot possibly know how happy I am that Melanie has gotten to enjoy this pregnancy with Nathan and the girls. Paul and I were talking about her the other day as he had requested an update, so your family has been covered in prayer from my house to Houston! I think I speak for all of us here (here in OK and those of us who read your blog) when I say that we love your family very much and are so very privileged to serve an awesome God who heals, loves, and holds us all. We are still praying for a smooth-sailing delivery!

    In Christ,

    Thank you!

  16. Thank you for happy update on Melanie’s baby and for sharing the beautiful pictures. The last one of Bethany is so precious. Looking forward to baby news in the days to come!

    Also looking forward to seeing you all at the SEARCH Conference in Philadelphia in June!

    With love from New Jersey

    The K Family
    Please introduce your family to us.

  17. What a terrific report. Many prayers answered. And we will continue praying.

    From our hearts,
    The T Family

  18. Thank you for the update!! Melanie looks beautiful and I am so happy that the Lord has blessed her in this time. I know they do not take it for granted. We will be checking in often between these two expecting families! There is just such a miracle in new life!!

  19. Every baby is precious but when you have babies in Heaven the living ones seem even more precious. We have eight babies in Heaven (a stillborn daughter and seven miscarriages (between 8 and 14 weeks) and our five living children are very precious to us. We do not take them for granted. Praying for Melanie and her baby and your whole family.
    Bless you Kim. The miscarriages can be so difficult.
