A Baby Bump & Family Pictures

In January this family picture of ours will be obsolete and incomplete. Boy or girl, this soon to be new family member will bring a whole different and exciting element to our family. This little person will once again change not just our family pictures, but our family dynamics forever.

Dear Baby, 

We promise to love you with all of our hearts little one and can't wait to meet you in January!
Right now you are keeping me up at night by kicking constantly and I'm pretty certain your doing summersaults. I'm not sure your brothers moved this much, or maybe I just forget with each pregnancy? Maybe your telling me to lay back on the coffee? It seems that as soon as I relax and get sleepy at night, you let me know that you are definitely not tired. Your growing rapidly and about 15 inches long and just 2.5 lbs, but to me you feel much bigger already! We hope you can stay put for at least 9 more weeks, then we will be ready to meet you after the New Year!

I'm very lucky to have these 4 in my life!

So... four pregnancies later, I've always wanted to do some sort of maternity-type pictures. Glad I got that out of my system and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for it! I think I disliked 90% of the belly pics. And I now know that I should be putting tape over my bellybutton so it doesn't look like it's going to bust right through my shirt, eww!

The all so familiar, traditional and not very unique heart with hands on belly shot :)

You are beautiful and these photos are great! I can definitely relate to the baby kicking a lot at night. I was thinking that I hope she doesn't keep this sleep pattern once she's here because she's a night owl! And if you think your belly button is gross and sticks out a lot then come see mine! It's a little disturbing and alien like.

YEAH for maternity pictures!
I think I diskliked my belly button showing through my shirt as well, even though everyone else supposedly found it endearing...ugh haha!
That was my only pregnancy dislike.
Your family is beautiful and I'm so excited for your little ones' arrival in January!
I take it that you aren't finding out the gender...have you ever found out gender on any of your little ones? I don't think I have it in me to wait until the due date to learn....more power to you ;)
Sending you lots of hugs and prayers and praise over your beautiful pictures!

Be Blessed,
