32 weeks pregnant and we finally got around to a photo shoot. What a journey to again be carrying a baby inside of me. This baby is so active lately; in the evenings when I finally sit down and put my feet up I feel so much movement. I told Jon recently that the baby seemed to be trying to escape out the side exit because it was pushing so hard at the side of my abdomen. I first felt the baby move around 17 weeks again, just like with Isaiah. And Jon felt the baby at 21 weeks- also, just like Isaiah.I’ve really been feeling so well considering all things. I’m tired a lot, which I guess is to be expected. But otherwise this pregnancy seems to be treating me well. In many ways it’s going so fast because I’m distracted with Isaiah and chasing another little one. Of course there are still days when it feels like the eight weeks ahead are forever! It’s amazing to me how pregnancy is 40 weeks of anticipation to met this baby growing inside of you. As I write this I feel this sweet baby hiccuping. It’s so crazy to feel that inside and then see them with hiccups when they are born as well…. and remember nights like these.
New little baby growing inside– we can’t wait to meet you! (well we can… stay inside where you are growing well for at least another six weeks please). I can’t wait to find out whether you are a boy or a girl, to see what things make you content, what moments make you smile, what experiences bring you joy. Growing you inside of me for 40 weeks is a privilege and getting to parent you on the outside will be as well. We pray for you every day! That God will continue to watch over you as you grow and also for the person that you will become. We love you to pieces! And can’t wait for you to join our little family.
