So here I am today...33 weeks and 1 day!One thing that hasn't changed is my egg shaped belly - it's been that way since the beginning and I think it's funny! I seriously love feeling like a mom in my pregnant body. I'm actually starting to feel like I'll miss it! The little one is just so transportable and the dresses are cute. Ha ha. And despite the heat, I am loving having a summer baby. Barefoot and pregnant for sure.
Last night I was once again watching YouTube videos of different cloth diaper reviews, and the g diaper newborn video totally made me cry! She had a brand new baby on there and it made me long to hold my own. I have held so many babies over the years and always dreamed and prayed one day I'd get to have my own. The reality of it is truly overwhelming and shocking to me now. My heart is overflowing with gratitude...I can't wait to snuggle little Baby Love and cry tears of joy over him or her. A real life dream come true. I'm sitting here crying just writing this!
Okay, okay, enough words - more pics! I really haven't done a fabulous job of keeping up to date with my baby belly on here. So in the next few days and weeks be sure that you'll probably get bombarded! I need to tell the whole story before little sweet one comes!
This is Kevin holding up the list we used to fill our "10 day emergency baby tub." Sometimes I think the nesting is hitting Kevin harder than me!
This is my older brother and I in Cincinnati last week for the North American Christian Convention. He is in Peru (South America) right now leading a mission's trip. It sounds like the driving up mountains is quite dangerous there, (based on his experience last year!), so please pray for his safety! And of course please pray for God to work in amazing ways while they're there! He's an amazing brother and an awesome friend.
This is Kevin and I at my grandma's for the 4th of July. 31 and 1/2 weeks pregnant. It was HOT.
My sweet grandma and I on the 4th of July. I had actually spent about 4 days before with her as she was in the hospital for fatigue and chest pains. Praise the Lord she is recovering and doing better! I once again entertained her with my insistence on sewing something with her while I was there. Speaking of which...
These are the bibs and one burp cloth I've made so far. I still have one bib left in progress. And to all those wondering...I will definitely be adding plenty of pink in the mix if it's a girl. I'm just choosing to stick with bright,cheery, and safe...completely neutral until I know for sure!
These are some of the cute clothes I got at my first shower - see, neutral can be very cute!! :) The red onesie on the right says, "mommy's little alarm clock." The bib in the middle says, "Star of Mommy's Blog." That will be true for sure. Love it!
This is a picture of my parents and I at about week 30. Yes, my dad is trying to be quite funny. Ha ha.
And of course I can't leave my little bro out - he has 2 sweet kids of his own and is excited
for me to join the club!
This was at 29 weeks - Kevin and I were housesitting and there's a putting green practically in the back yard. He was hitting some golf balls and the sky was awesome that night!
This pic is at the baby shower my friend Staci threw for me in my hometown this past weekend. 32 and 1/2 weeks pregnant. It was an awesome shower and a beautiful morning! The top pic is of my sister-in-law and niece, and the bottom is of childhood friends and my high school youth minister's wife. (Now also a friend! :)
Finally, here's one more pic that proves how very different a pregnant person can look depending on what they're wearing! Moral of the story - maternity clothes fit and flatter much better!
See, now you have proof that I'm as pregnant as ever! Thanks for your patience with the pics to prove it. :)
