28 Weeks!

Time is marching on and I am now in my third trimester of pregnancy!
I feel 'big', but not really baby big, just big :)
I can hardly believe that in just a few short months we will be welcoming
Baby M into our home.
Now that I'm sporting a round middle the littles
are beginning to chat about Baby M with great excitement....
you know it seems all the more real when Mama's belly 
starts to get in the way of hugging and lap sitting;) 
This morning Ruth Ella told me that she is going to kiss all over the baby
just as soon as it "pops out"!
~Sweet girl if it was only so easy~
Some days the children talk of the baby referring to Baby M
as 'he' and other days they say 'she'...
I'm not really sure any of us have set our minds to one gender over the other.
Yet, one thing is for sure Baby M
is most definitely a boy or a girl:)
I'm enjoying this pregnancy and treasuring each flutter and kick.
No two pregnancies are alike, just as no two people are alike...
from pregnancy and baby #1 Elizabeth to now,
#12 Baby M each have been a blessing and I'm so thankful!
12 more weeks, give or take, to go....

Lynda said...

My Amanda and I were discussing how much we admire you. You are an amazing Christian woman and mom and we are privileged to know you!

Nikki said...

You look wonderful and happy. :) What a sweet baby belly. :) You sure don't look big to me. Soooo excited to "meet" the little M within the next few months. Your pregnancy is flying.

Deb said...

Just beautiful!!! Love your wonderful smile in this photo.
(Now that the wedding is over and all the details complete, look for a long-overdue letter from me!)


You are beautiful! Hope the last 12 weeks go good for you:)

Baby M looks teeny tiny! You look WONDERFUL. So glad you posted pictures. Now you can go back (in the future) and see how tiny you really were :-) And beautiful. You glow sweet Mama!

I always find it amazing how different each baby really can be. From pregnancy to labor to the character of each child. I was telling John this morning "they each have their own walk and I can tell which child is on his way to us by the sound of his walk" haha!

Hope you are taking it easy and putting those feet up. I found that much easier to do with my 9th and 10th babies. Not because I was worn out but rather I wanted to enjoy the moments and sit and visit (and not get over tired).

Love you friend!

Beautiful picture! Can't wait to find out if the baby is a girl or boy!

Momma Chilson said...

You look great! Enjoy the last trimester! Praying for the family!

Momma Bug said...

And you look lovely!

I'll be praying that Baby M "pops out" at just the perfect time and in the perfect style :-)

You look lovely dear friend. Thankful to hear all is well with you and Baby M. Before Eva cme Maggie started praying that she would 'pop out' soon. I'm not even sure where she heard the phrase hut the first me he prayed it I couldn't help but laugh. after the crazy birth Hugh I decided next time I might have her pray differenly. : ) love you friend. Looking forward to wedding pictures.

This time will speed right by and Baby M will be here before you know it.
