being pregnant…

so i wanted to capture some pictures of being pregnant but i didn’t want to be too cheesy or to too weird. sometimes i see these pictures of women {and their husbands} naked together touching bellies and idk it has always creeped me out, so my hope is that these do NOT creep you out. i wanted a reminder of the shape of my body while this baby was inside of me, and something that i could look back on some day and say hey that’s you & me in there… can you believe that?” — kristen truly understood what i wanted & i think they turned out wonderful… just enough cheese but not a full on queso dip. i have to admit that i have enjoyed being pregnant. much more so than i ever thought i would. it is the most bizarre thing in the world to me, that there is a full on human in my belly but it is also incredible, and i would carry this child forever. to feel your baby kicking & moving inside of you provides you with the oddest sense of self worth. this child needs me. this baby couldn’t get here any other way. and it’s just not one of the facts that i ever focused on or thought about pre pregnancy. and it has also started to become real for brian i think. i takes boys awhile longer because they can’t feel all this commotion. they can see their wives gaining a little weight, but i don’t think they can truly process it yet. this weekend though, the smile on brian’s face when he was laying his head on my belly feeling his child pushing against his face… well that smile, i would do anything for that smile. that smile is what i live for. i can’t wait to see him become a father in 7 more weeks. we will see you soon baby.

love, your mama
