The Belly

On Saturday I had Mark take a few pictures of me and Amelia. I recently realized that there are hardly any of me during this pregnancy and knew I had to remedy that! I might not care for the way I look in pictures right now, but I know it will be fun for baby girl to look back on these pictures and know that she was in my tummy! I absolutely love my baby belly – it constantly brings to mind the miracle inside of me, especially when baby girl gets to rolling around in there. Yesterday she was doing “the wave” after I ate lunch – such a fun thing to see and feel!

This coming Saturday (March 24th) I will be more pregnant than I have ever been, seeing as how Amelia was born when I was 34 weeks 5 days pregnant. I am having a hard time imagining what my belly will look like if I make it to 39 weeks! Both of my doctors have decided to induce me at 39 weeks because of my Gestational Diabetes, and I am just praying that I make it that long. Hopefully the little one will stay put and the doctors won’t find any reason to induce earlier!

Also, take a look at Amelia’s big open-mouthed grin in the first two pictures! That’s what we get when we ask for a smile. The last few were taken after Mark asked Amelia to give her sister a hug – she’s such a sweetheart!

    Oh my goodness, that last pictures is just too precious for words. Amelia is going to be a great big sister.

    You have ramped my baby fever up to full on baby lust. I need to get insurance right this minute. Lily needs a sister.

      She is enamored with the idea of having a sister in the house, and all of her stuffed animals are her “babies” now. I’m just praying her excitement stays once the little one is actually here!
