My Maternity Photos!!!

Well I have been waiting and waiting to share these photos with you and I am so happy to finally be able to!  This past year has been one of the best years of my life as my husband and I have been preparing to welcome our little baby girl, Blake Eileen Brandon, into the family!  I am writing this post at 5am having been awake already with little blake’s wiggling and hiccups (her favorite thing to do inside my belly) since 3am, but I have never been filled with more joy!  I thank that Lord for the special gift He is giving to us and am counting down the days (1 month left) until little blake arrives!

My dear friend Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photographers, took our maternity photos and I really don’t think I would’ve picked anyone else to do it…she captured everything perfectly and these photos are something I will treasure for the rest of my life…thanks Carlie!  We were also lucky enough to be featured on the blog, Onto Baby, my new obsession these past few months, so you can check out their full post here!

As many of my friends and family members will tell you I certainly am doing my fair share of shopping for my little girl…I just can’t stop myself when I see tiny clothes and shoes!  Yes I know she probably will only wear those shoes for half a second, but they have made me smile so much already and her tiny feet aren’t even in them yet!

My sweet hubby Tim has been the best partner ever to go through this pregnancy with…I will cherish every memory of him talking to little blake in my belly and seeing the joy on his face as he talks about all his future plans with his little girl.  She is one lucky lady to have such an amazing daddy!

Of course we had to do a couple wardrobe changes…just in case my pregnant and ever changing body didn’t look so good in one outfit :) Thankfully Carlie is a master at what she does and made all my outfits work!

    Girl you look Great! I’m happy for both you and your husband, the Blessing of the Lord–it makes (truly) rich, and God adds no sorrow with it (neither does toiling increase it). Proverbs 10:22 I love the fact you have always include God in everything that you do, without Him you would have not been so successful in you career.
