We have entered the phase of pregnancy where every night before bed I do a thing or two that I’d REALLY want done should I go into labor right now.
This is useful in terms of productivity and annoying because I have a literal month before anyone will talk about inducing without serious begging on my part, and I’m not going to do that. I’m just internally begging my uterus to start the eviction process, already. The days definitely feel like they’re slowing as we near the finish line, or with every day that passes the finish line moves farther away? I’m not sure.
Our best friends threw us a super fun sprinkle for this little one last week, and one of the hosts, Heather, took some pictures of us while we were there. She did this with her newborn strapped to her chest, crying nearly the entire time (the baby, not Heather), so I was thrilled and impressed with how these turned out. You can see more of her gorgeous work here! She also took pictures of us when I was pregnant with Beck and had more time to do hair and makeup.
I love these reminders of the way we are right now, and even though I’m anxious to get this next chapter started I’m definitely sad to be losing this version of our family – just the three of us, two parents v one kid, you know, emotional sentimental stuff.
I’ve already ordered a bunch of these and am hoping to have them up in the house in time for new baby visitors! Or in time for me to stare at for the last gazillion days of pregnancy.
Whichever comes first.
