There once was a married couple--their names were Ashley and Joe. They were about to embark on a crazy adventure, and they honestly didn't know!
See, they were going to get great news: a baby would soon be all theirs. They were so excited, they could hardly stand it; Yes, God had answered their prayers.
They told their families and friends, and everyone was filled with joy! They celebrated, and then they all wondered, would it be a girl or a boy?
Joe and Ashley waited a few weeks, and then they found out for sure. They would have a girl--can you even believe it?--a sweet baby girl to adore!
They spent lots of time with their loved ones, imagining how life would change. They celebrated, and they asked lots of questions,
And Ashley's belly began to look strange!
They could see that Austin was growing (yes, that's what their girl's name would be!). As Ashley's belly grew bigger and bigger, they knew she was strong and healthy!
Soon after, Joe and Ashley's family and friends decided to make them feel special. So they threw baby showers; they gave lovely gifts. And Joe and Ashley's hearts felt so full!
At this point, Joe and Ashley felt pretty prepared. They had everything but their new baby. So they talked about all the fun things they would do, and they took some naps while they were waiting.
