Anyways, I am organizing and going through all my belongings lately, trying to simplify my life. And I happened to find a disc of photos with the long-lost pregnancy photos on it!
The photos are from a football game my mom, big brothers, and I went to on September 13, 2009. The game was in Charlotte, NC (about 3 hours from where I live in Raleigh) between the Philadelphia Eagles (my brother Joseph's favorite team) and the Carolina Panthers (my brother Adam's former favorite team). We spent a couple days in the city, staying at a hotel.
I was exactly 14 weeks pregnant at the time. I had told my mom I was pregnant just 5 days before this. I had just moved back to NC the day before this for my pregnancy. In just 6 days, I would have my very first ultrasound. I remember feeling so sick in the hotel room, but not being able to tell my brothers why (I wasn't quite ready to tell everyone about Lily). Adam and Joseph were 25 at the time and I was 20. Now I am 25, my little sister is 20, and my brothers are 30... time flies!!
This is just one of the many adventures Lily went on during her time on Earth! And I am so thankful to finally find the pictures to add to my pregnancy scrapbook. The things I have from my pregnancy are so dear to me! My brother also recently sent me his ticket from the game that he has kept all these years, so I can add that to the scrapbook too.
It makes me smile to see these pictures and to know that little Lily was growing away!
