I’m currently 38 weeks (tomorrow), and cannot contain my excitement that Anna Kate could make her arrival any day now. I’m at “that point” in pregnancy when there’s no comfortable position to sleep in. Not that I’d be getting much sleep anyways with a million things running through my mind and the excitement that comes with every pain I feel wondering “is this it?!”. Poor Jordan has to put up with my many trips to the bathroom during the night, numerous attempts to get comfortable, and my giant body pillow that takes up half of the bed. During the day, you might as well just call me Mrs. Clean, cause that’s all I do. I guess this is what they call nesting. At least Jordan, who I’ve nicknamed Danny Tanner for his obsession with cleaning (for those who might not believe that, you should see his face light up when we walk through the cleaning aisle at Walmart), can’t complain about my sudden need to have everything neat and clean around the house. Poor guy probably hasn’t had his laundry this clean since before we got married and his mom did it for him.
Oh, the joys of pregnancy.
I have truly enjoyed this experience; the miracle of growing a life inside of me. I can’t believe we’re so close to meeting our precious daughter. The reality is setting in that we could be parents any day now. That is scary, overwhelming, and the most exciting thing I’ve ever felt. The Lord has given us this huge blessing that has already brought so much joy into our lives. I can’t wait to meet her.
The other day, Jordan insisted on taking some maternity photos of me. He had a vision and I just went along with it. I couldn’t be happier with the results! Normally I’m the one who does all the instructing during a shoot and he works primarily as my second shooter. He did a great job of posing and guiding me throughout the entire process and making me feel more comfortable in front of the camera. I hate to post photos of just myself (and this will probably be the only post like this to ever grace this blog), but I have to show off my talented husband’s work. He did such a wonderful job of documenting this time in our lives.
More photos of Anna Kate’s nursery will come later! And of course when she gets here, photos of her will be on here as well!
