One More Thing....

that I can cross off my list.

Having pictures taken with the kids and my enormous tummy was on my to-do list.   I know, I know, not the most flattering for me but....

this is our last baby.  I want to remember, and treasure, and cherish this. 

The Cherishing will have to come after, because at the moment I feel miserable.  I thought pictures would be the best way to capture it.  I want to look back and be grateful for the four beautiful children that I have been able to nurture in my womb.

My friend Paige came and helped us.  I handed over my camera and let her go for it.  She did a great job.  I was so excited that I got right to editing.

Here are a few(well if you know me, it won't be a few.)

I am so grateful we got these done before the baby came. 

My husband was so thrilled to know that there would be another photo shoot after the baby came.  Jex was pretty excited too!!

They're beautiful. I can't wait to get all my kiddos together to do a family photo shoot. ;D Congrats on making it this far with the pregnancy!

Oh, they are gorgeous! That's funny timing--I was just mentioning to Chris this morning that I think I would like tummy portraits this time. :)
My favorite is the one of you and your kids with you looking down at them and their hands on your tummy. So sweet!

The pictures turned out AWESOME! Paige did a great job! You are so lucky to have her. That's next on my list...I don't know if I'm going to make it and I will be sad if I don't. :( I'm getting there though. My list is becoming more complete every day!

So cute. I sure love them. I can't believe you are already getting ready to have that baby. Time sure does fly. I am sure it hasn't gone fast enough for you some days but I am glad that little girl held on and continued cooking in your oven. I can't wait to see her. I still feel like it was yesterday Issac was born and I was visiting you in the hospital.

Dave and Lindsay said...

Way cute!! I am glad you were able to get them before she came!

SO CUTE! You have such a beautiful family! Andrea you look amazing and totally not ready to have a baby. :) where did you get your cute jeans? Are they maternity? I am having a hard time finding pants I feel cute in. Maybe I just need to accept that I am pregnant and I won't be cute in anything huh? ha ha
