aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah <----- That's my sigh of relief that I can finally tell people that I'm pregnant and not just bloating or drinking too much. That's right, I'm sure most of you are on facebook so it's not a surprise for me to say "I'm Pregnant". This is exciting and scary for us but I think even if we did have enough room, financial means, and time that it would still be pretty scary. That's just normal. The doc says everything is great and baby is growing just as it should.

So my life for the last 2 months?! pretty miserable. I was blessed with morning, lunch, and evening sickness. It has FINALLY started to wear off. I really couldn't imagine being sick my entire pregnancy. I was also blessed with daily headaches, back pain, and fatigue. Yep, this pregnancy has pretty much ruled my life for the last 8 weeks. I wonder if that's a testament to the babies personality? Probably not, since I wouldn't have known I was pregnant with Emily until I started to show. She was the worlds easiest pregnancy. This has been the complete opposite so we will see.... only 6 more months to go!

4th photo shoot!

While looking back through my archives I could have swore that I had put up 2 pictures of Emily, taken around the 4th of july sometime last year, but after looking for them I couldn't find them. I guess that means since I only have 3 that I will put them up for everyone to see and compare.

I was told by a wise relative (I can't really remember which one it was, SORRY) that since I had conveniently taken 2 pictures of Emily in the exact same place around the same time of year that I would make a habit of it and do it ever year. It seems the 4th of July is easy enough for me to remember and we are usually on the in-law's front yard for it, so it works perfect.

I remember about this time last year thinking the exact same thing that I did last year: How is it that when I took the first picture I know for sure that Emily was a beautiful as she would ever get! I mean...how in the world was it possible for her to get any prettier. Then I took last years picture and I looked back at the first year and thought...WOW...and I thought she was beautiful then. Well it's year three and I'm standing in awe again!! I may be bias but you be the judge:

June 30th, 2007: You could not have paid me enough money to take a picture of myself. I was about ready to pop...however a clever wedding photographer happened to catch me standing profile...thanks whoever you are.
