Before Gray and I headed out this morning with the kiddos I had him quickly take some maternity shots of me before we left...my hair was clean and I had some makeup on so I thought I should take advantage of that. Haha! (I am soooo the typical mom...it hits me now and then that I can't remember the last time I showered...lovely.) I just have to say that out of the 50+ pictures he took, these were the only ones I could bear to look at. I hide from the camera when I'm pregnant and typically only take pictures like these, just to have some proof of my baby bump! So here you go...maternity shots at 26 weeks preggy. And yes, my face is looking down in every one because I couldn't stand the ones of me looking at the camera! Oh, how I love being pregnant! I suppose I'll take some more near the end when I'm REALLY big...you gotta have those ones!
All joking and self-bashing aside, I really AM happy to be pregnant. The "female-ness" in me just takes over when I see pictures of myself, but I am really enjoying my bump and knowing that my baby girl is in there. It truly is amazing what the body can do and I love feeling her kick (she does that ALOT!) and hearing her little heartbeat. (I have one of these.) So amazing. It is starting to become a reality that we are having another one...we've been wondering who she's going to look like, what color her hair is going to be. It's crazy to think that people do this all the time...it's such a miracle and such a long process, I can't believe that some people have 5, 8, 10 kids!!! What the freak.
Anyways, I am blabbing. Maybe you'll see some more pictures of me in 3 months...until then, I think I'll stick with Payton and Gabbs!
