From Positive to Baby

I haven't looked at these for four months. Ready for insanity? I miss that belly. I want to be pregnant again! (No, this isn't a pregnancy announcement...I'm not THAT crazy.)

Some of these have little reminders of what was going on in our lives that week.

1st row, 1st pic - 6 weeks pregnant, first belly pic!
1st row, 4th pic - We got our Pack N Play 50% off at Target! 1st baby purchase!
1st row, 5th pic - The first cloth diaper we purchased. This was around 16 weeks, I think.
2nd row, 3rd pic - Picking paint colors for her room.
3rd row, 1st pic - Painted!
4th row, 1st pic - Curtains up in her closet, and got a stroller!
4th row, 3rd pic - Baby shower invites went out!
4th row, 4th pic - First baby shower gift sent to our house! The line on the wall is masking tape where I taped off the size of the crib.
4th row, 5th pic - The crib is in the room! (But note it is not put together...ahem, Chris.)
5th row, 1st pic - Friend baby shower, around 34 weeks
5th row, 2nd pic - Family baby shower, around 36 weeks
5th row, last pic - BABY!

A Simple Wish

I want to bottle everything about this moment right here, as she lays sleeping across my body after nursing, her delicate lashes resting on her cheek, her tiny hands opening and closing against my chest, and Cupid bow lips silently dream suckling. Every once in a while she stirs and nuzzles more deeply into me, pressing her face into my skin. I want to bottle this, and then when she's a sixteen-year-old obstinate teenage open up the bottle and dump it all over her smart ass.
