One of my oldest dearest friends and her six month baby bump.

I have been waiting a very long time for this baby boy.

So much love to this incredible mama who’s beauty shines very obviously on the outside but is only a fraction of the endless light and beauty that is on the inside!

Sunshine

My beautiful friend, back in the summer…days before her little sweetie was born.

A first for everything

I have never been a part of wheeling someone out of the hospital who is supposed on bed rest, and sneaking around outside to take photos, wheel chair off-roading and all…until now.

Such a wonderful couple who are getting to meet their baby MUCH sooner than expected.

Thinking of you two. Lots of love!

Almost

The wait is almost over. The many months spent growing, spent anticipating and spent dreaming of this tiny person is almost at an end. And there is a mix of emotion unlike any other. On the one hand, you are so tired. Your body is weary and your nights are sleepless, you truly feel that this is the end. On the other hand you are anxious because of all the unknown that is about to unfold. About labour, about the delivery…about life with this new person.

And then it happens. Everyones story is so different, everyones experience is so unique but in the end there they are. That tiny little perfect being that in an instant our worlds shift to revolve around. That in an instant give our lives so much more than we could possibly imagine. That moment when bringing a new life into this world is what makes you feel most alive.

It’s here…almost.

Sail away

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do.

So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore.     Dream.     Discover.”

-Mark Twain

The beginning in the end.

A bump this size means, sigh, it’s almost over. As insanely beautiful as I think pregnant women are with a full round bump…I know from experience that carrying it can make you feel anything but. I spent the last couple months sleeping propped up and surrounded by pillows on my couch bed. I spent my down time literally down on all fours swaying back and forth trying to turn a stubborn baby. I couldn’t walk far due to lack of air because my giant fetus was stretching out and up into  the place my lungs once lived. I would sneeze…and pee a little (well, some things don’t change 😉

Pregnancy is truly a miracle…but when you get to the end it is soooooo wonderful to get that baby out and have your body back.

THIS mom though defies pregnancy. As “done” as she says she is, she is more glowing, more energetic and more alive than I am on my best days. Amy…you amaze me. I know you are tired and ready for the end. You are chasing after a BUSY little two year old. You are so uncomfortable. You are incredible. I hope baby comes soon so this phase can end and this next one can begin.

You are so beautiful.

Lots of love.

Here comes the sun!

By the end of summer I am always looking forward to fall and then winter. But as winter comes to an end and the flowers and blossoms begin to bloom I am reminded that spring is AMAZING!!! I love seeing bare branches filling with bright colourful blossoms. I love hearing the birds and feeling the warmth of the sun and the smell…fresh cut grass, sweet spring growth…nothing on this earth smells quite like spring. I am SO excited it is finally here!!!

And here is a new beginning on a whole other lever. New life…the miracle of a new baby about to turn this gorgeous spring into something even better. The world is in full bloom baby, ready and anxiously waiting for you!

All the Way

I remember SO well those last couple weeks before June was born. I was terrified. I looked at Penny and panicked. She was my baby! The last two and a half years were just us and her. The closer it got to my due date the more worried I became as I knew my relationship with Penny would be so different and I had no idea what that meant exactly. For those weeks I hugged her a little tighter, held her a little longer and tried desperately to soak in my last days with my baby before she became a big sister and our family would change forever.

Then June was born. Precious baby June. All that worry and fear turned instantly to pure joy and I sighed a huge sigh of relief and I looked at her knowing that our family was now complete. I hadn’t realized it before but we had been missing something all along. We were missing our June. I was so focused on what I was going to loose with Penny that I didn’t think about what I would be gaining!

As this family prepares to welcome a new baby into their family I hope you feel encouraged. Know that two kids doesn’t just mean double the work (although it isn’t easy) but it will mean double the joy, double the blessing and your heart will once again grow even bigger than you ever thought possible. This baby is going to change your lives in such a good way and I am SO excited for you!

I love you guys.
