Belly Pictures

You know, one of the first things people would ask me when I told them I was pregnant was, "Are you taking belly pictures?"  My initial thought was, "HECK NO!!"  At that time I felt sick, fat and anything but happy about the baby in my belly.  I know it sounds horrible after what I went through to get this baby.  But after numerous inquiries I finally broke down (you all read that blog. Josh's screaming face... :o)  And now I am so glad that I did.  When I am having a bad day, it actually gives me hope that I will not be this large for the rest of my life.  Seriously, I can't get over how big I felt here:
And now look at me!
This is what I have always dreamed of.
I love my belly now! I look pregnant, versus a college girl who drinks too much. It is just great to see your body change so much because of the little miracle that it holds.  I live with my tummy everyday so I don't always get to see these changes.  I know it is getting bigger because my clothes are getting tighter, but how much it has changed is hard to remember.  These pictures help remember what I used to look like.  It is fun to see that kind of transition.  What can I say?  I am so glad I am taking these pictures!!

Jenni, I love you. You look more beautiful than I realized! The Tummy thing is really fun, isn't it? By the way...I know you have your doubts, but the nursing thing actually isn't scary at all. It's great and hard and painful...and great. It's an experience that you will hold dear. You can quote me on that. Can I come visit you and Sarah, soon?
