|my absolute favorite maternity photo|
|making hearts over my Lily-belly|
|with my sister, Emma (a.k.a. "Bub")|
|with my cousin, Anna|
|Loads of empathy and support ;)|
|When I shared this photo on Facebook at the time, my mom commented and said "My lovely Rose! :)" |
And I responded and said, "You're just too prec! ;) Now, I'm waiting on my lovely Lily!"
|what joy she brought/brings me! :)|
I shared a few of these pictures on my blog when we first took them and wrote this (also mentioning the appointment where the ultrasound photos below were taken):
"As of Sunday, I am in my 25th week of pregnancy. My cousin Anna was down visiting from Virginia for the weekend so she, my sister, and I had a little photo shoot. It's so fun to see how much my belly has grown in such a short amount of time! I had an appointment with my Dr. last Tuesday and he said Lily is already 2 pounds and over a foot long! He checked her heart, brain, lungs, among other things and said she is very healthy! She's growing at the right speed and is quite active these days! As of now, Lily is definitely an early riser, waking me in the mornings with all sorts of squirming and kicking around. If this is any indication of what's to come, I better change my sleeping patterns now to get ready for this wild child! All my tests have come back healthy thus far as well. On December 21st, I'll be getting tested for gestational diabetes. Anyways, I'll give more of an update later about what's been going on in my pregnancy these last few weeks. It's quite an exciting time!!"
And here is Lily waving at her mommy! Look at those precious, tiny fingers!
It's special knowing that these belly pictures are from almost the same day that Lily was waving at her mommy in the womb. That's how big she was!
