Pregancy Belly Memory Lane

Come join me on a trip down memory lane! Inspired by this post last week.

Pregancy Belly Memory Lane

This is a picture of me at my baby shower/blessing way. I am holding a sound machine that the hostesses gave me, what a life saver that thing is! We still use it every night. I am so happy it had a small blessing way component to it, it made it so special.

This is a picture Peter took after we had taken our pregnancy portraits. I love this picture! Actually, I love all my pregnancy pictures. Even though I gained nearly 75 pounds while pregnant, I never felt more beautiful in my whole life.

This is a picture of me the day we went hiking in Torreya National Park. It is the most beautiful place this time of year, which reminds me, we should try and do that again soon with Penelope! I am standing in front of the camping spot where Peter first told me he loved me almost 8 years ago! This picture makes me want to be pregnant again, just so I can rub my belly. I swear, I had my hand on my belly for the entire 10 months.

And finally, my Halloween costume last year! So fun! My friend Molly did me the honor of painting my belly. The best comment of the night, was from a little girl, about 2 or 3, who came up to me, patted my belly, and said “WHAT is IN there?!?”

    Such happy times, eh? Not that now isn't, but it was such an experience hogging our little girls to ourselves in our bellies. Love you!

    <3… made me tear up… I love pregnant mamas, and you were such a gorgeous one, and still are! I was so upset I missed your blessingway… For some reason I wrote it down in my planner as the 31st?!? And it was on the 1st, right? At any rate, I was sad, and promptly sent some cloth to P 🙂

    @Lia… I totally agree.
    @Maureen… I know I wish you were there, but no worries. And thanks again for the cloth! It was so helpful to get a present, we actually registered for!
