Maybe the fact that I've tried hard to keep the blog updated will suffice- at least that's what I'm telling myself!
So I thought I'd at least try to play catch up with some of the belly photos I did sneak in here and there through all the busy days. Almost all of them were taken with the fancy photo phone Matt picked out for me, even though he does fuss about how he'd be happy to take "real ones" for me. Somehow it just feels easier to snap a quick one with my phone on the way out the door after how long it takes to get everybody dressed and ready most days!
Baby number 3!
12 Weeks 6 days
1st ultrasound! Pregnancy confirmed and ready to announce!
Momma had just gotten herself a haircut.
I felt so large already in this picture!
Partly the denial, but partly that little man has been measuring big all along!
It's a boy!
A friend kept the kids while we went to the ultrasound.
Kenna was a little bummed, but got right on board with brother #2!
I think the cupcake with little blue shoes helped.
Packing up the whole house to move, crashing on the couch at night.
Walking out the door, ready for church.
(At our new house by now.)
Matt bought me this Shelly Moore Band t-shirt for Christmas.
He was purposely hoping it would fit my belly!
I finally broke down and bought a few new maternity pieces, but refused to spend much.
This shirt was one of them, $10 at Old Navy.
Against my will, finally wearing maternity jeans, also from Old Navy.
I hate how badly they fall down!
This shirt was consignment, it's super comfy.
We're also having a harder time naming this one than we ever have before. Of course, because we are having a boy, all I can think of is a whole list of girl names I love and I'm really struggling with the boy ones. We've agreed not to go to the hospital without a name settled, so we'll at least have a 15-20 minute drive to decide!
Thankfully, little man moves frequently and reminds me that he is almost ready to join in the fun chaos around here. Kenna is beyond thrilled "two baby brothers," and likes to say hello to my belly and give the "brand new baby" lots of kisses. Finn has just recently gotten into taking care of Kenna's "babees," mostly kissing them and putting them "night night." It's really, really sweet and I can't wait to see what he thinks about the real deal- although we'll have to watch him like a hawk! He is quick and sneaky, and plays a little rough.
