Yes, I know. It’s cliche – the whole “hand heart” thing.
Tried self-portrait belly shots today.
What a pain.
Where is Juile Harris when you need her?
Some turned out pretty but I had to edit them to high heaven cause I was out of focus. That’s what happens when you are running back and forth from the front to the back of the camera.
I tried to get some with the kids on either side of the belly.
Ya right.
As much of a horrible pregnant person as I make I do love the look of pregnancy and I just wanted to capture a couple photos that I had rigged up in my mind. Let’s just say I did NOT capture them – and though I wasn’t nu it’s not like you can run around SHOWing people the photos so maybe I am a bit let down.
Might try again if a poof of energy comes my way…still have to make the belly cast…why I do those when they are just laying in a closet…guess I have fantasies of gesso-ing them and hanging them up like some sexy, feminine piece of art…where? I don’t know but I have one for the other pregnancies so what am I gonna do … pass this time?
Today Aidan asked if we could name “Le Troisieme” – “Junior”.
We have all got it pretty bad around here. Even, just-turned-two Amélie has been sleeping with her #88 pink sock cap on – hilarious.
Just how many more days until Daytona anyways? Gonna have to get this one a little Junior onesie – the only one we have has little red #8 cars on it.
Sorry these posts are so lame.
I am just waiting and waiting …

    Well I think it is a great belly shot…editing or not! The next poof of energy you get just might be that one RIGHT before the baby comes!!! Save up!! LOL!

    I think your belly shot is beautiful. It completely captures the wonder and beauty of pregnancy. You did good! Many blessings are being prayed your way.

    I hope that you are taking advantage of all the sleeping that you can do in the next 14 days! I still remember how sleep deprived I was after my children were born.

    Only 14 days to go?! I hope you get your much needed rest before le troisieme arrives.
    I love the picture of your belly, no matter how cliche it may seem.
    Bonne Année!

    actually, self portrait belly shots sounds exciting compared to exit-ing the tree and Christmas decor …


  12. Life in the 'Burbs

    I’ll come over and we’ll do belly shots again :o) I wish I could. When is your due date exactly?

  13. Kathy's Red Door Welcome

    My mother used to say “these are the sweetest days of you life” when I was pregnant and I would laugh, but now that my children have grown and left home, I know exactly what she meant. Beautiful photos. Happy New Year.

  14. Faith

    The picture is gorgeous!!! I can’t wait to see pictures of your newest addition and hear all about the birth. Hopefully it will be a little calmer then last time. Any day now. Miss you!!
