Finally getting around to posting last week's belly portraits. These were taken at 32 weeks. This has truly become one of my favorite weekly rituals that I look forward to. I usually do them in the morning, along with my decaf coffee, and soak in the beautiful morning light in my window and whatever fresh flowers James bought me just for the photos. I will treasure these photos forever. I have never loved my belly more, I think I've already said that a million times, but it's true. I've never really loved my belly, it's always been a place I try to hide, but pregnancy has completely changed that. I wish I could walk around everywhere with it out!!! And I know I only have a few weeks left of that feeling.
Today we have another midwife appointment and start our birthing classes! I'm a bit nervous about the classes, and I think James is too. Mostly b/c it's something new and we don't know what to expect, and also b/c it really makes things feel more real and immanent.
My baby shower is this sunday, and it's at my house, so I've been tirelessly working on keeping my house clean, rearranging, and setting things up. I've made a million lists. I probably should of had it somewhere else so I could just relax and show up, ha ha, but I thought it would be alot more personal and intimate to do it at our house. I am just praying it doesn't rain like it is forecasted to.
