A belly shot

Whew! Just look at that belly! Okay, okay, so maybe I shouldn't be too offended when people make comments about the size of my tummy, huh?

Emma Grace took this picture of me last week. We have had some unseasonably warm days and on this particular day, it was 80 degrees outside! I was wearing this dress while I was cooking dinner and Wubs asked if she could take my picture for daddy! wink. So, we snapped a picture and since a few of my dear friends have requested a belly shot... this is for you!

Our little baby boy, J.J. (Joel Joaquin) is due on May 19. But let me just say, I will be very surprised if I make it that long! I think he wants out now! He is always on the move. And this pregnancy is so different than my pregnancies with Wubs and Bella. They would give me a little kick, kick or a little roll to one side but J.J. enjoys flipping, KICKING, sommersaulting, and stretching! I just can't wait to hold him in my arms and kiss his sweet little face. The big belly, the occasional discomfort that accompanies a kick, the somewhat offensive comments (wink), the inability to find a good comfy spot when I'm trying to fall asleep- it's ALL so incredibly worth it!! I'm loving every minute of it!

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."- Hebrews 11:6
