my babies and me

(yes, this is Brent’s shot. Yes, it says “photography by Erin” – just wanted it protected)
I asked Brent to take a few snaps last night after Sarah’s bath. Would you believe I haven’t taken a single shot of this belly? At least not with the express purpose of documenting this pregnancy. I feel horrible about it. Sarah has an entire album about my pregnancy with her, complete with notes from her daddy, ultrasound pics, the whole works. Everyone told me to slow down, that I wouldn’t have time to do it with the next one and I waved them off. Of course, I would. Who did they think I was?
Unfortunately, they were right. My time for that has diminished since the last time I was pregnant. But my love for this child is just as strong as my love for Sarah when I was carrying her. That never changes. I love you Baby Maybe. (his/her new post-ultrasound name since we’re only 90% sure of the sex!)

It is a lovely photo. The pregnancy photos may slow down but the baby pix won’t. I took more with each child. Jamie has two first year photo albums. I haven’t even started with Jacob’s yet. There are just too many pictures. You look great! How are you feeling?

Love the belly!!! I did the same thing – had tons of pictures and TWO baby books with Tyler, notes, poems. Then barely got the baby book half filled with Nick. You’re busy being a MOM now not just a pregnant lady.

By the way, check your email!! I sent you a link to something you might like.

We love your babies too! Say, maybe that’s why God gave you a boy–I don’t think baby boy Cobb will care as much about the documentation as a girl might. However, I know he’ll have many photos for his photo book!

umm… Jane’s baby book isn’t near what the other two’s are… It’s really bad! Her scrapbook doesn’t even have her birth done! The stress of it all! I have TONS of pictures just not yet scraped!

You look great and what a sweet picture!

We got to hear our little “pumpkin’s” heartbeat today! Whoo Hoo! I’m getting so super excited!!!

Take Care!

oh that’s beautiful friend.

ok, don’t do that to a 9-month pregnant lady. that is so sweet.

Aunt LuJuly 27, 2007 - 7:22 pm

It doesn’t matter how many pictures you take of your belly. All that matters is that is one lucky baby to have parents like you and Brent.

Hear, hear, to what Aunt Lu said!!

Beautiful photo!! Good job, Brent! I think I only have one preggy photo of me with my second child, but I do have a ton more of both kids after Ava was born. It’s a lot more different and sometimes difficult being pregnant the second time around, especially when you can’t nap anytime you want anymore. ;p

This is a beautiful, touching photo.
(Good job, Daddy.) 😉

You’ll find that your heart simply expands to make room to love one more child.

You’re going to have so much fun chasing after two little ones! 🙂

Love the photo! Great job, Brent. I’m so happy that I get to see that belly in person in just 3 days!

Gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Of course you are inspirational! From your blog I’ve learned that everyday things can be beautiful too. 🙂

One of lifes beauty is, a child while mom is caring them. Life is truly a miracle.
Don’t feel as if you are not doing the same thing for this child as you did for Sarah…remember, we are all so very different!
Love you and hope you are feeling well, with this pregnancy….

You’re so cute pregnant, and that is such a beautiful shot of the two (three!) of you.

lizJuly 30, 2007 - 6:09 pm

I love the new name. We love you, Baby Maybe!

I was just going to ask to see that belly! You look great Erin and I love the picture. Brent might have to join your photography business 🙂 Hang in there, you are heading towards that last trimester. Gina
