a rough week

Sorry for my blogging absence the past week. I haven't felt like doing much of anything. Not only has my morning sickness got worse but I still have this stubborn cough that is now hurts in my chest. On a side note, only 3 more days until the expected due date. I'm really hoping and praying that the baby comes, I do not want to be in the hospital for Christmas, and I want him here for Christmas. I'm starting to think that will never happen, less than 2 weeks away.

Phil is coming down this weekend, and were are going to go for long walks hoping to rush the baby out, let gravity take its tole. Also, our 1 year anniversary is this Friday, pretty crazy how things work out I suppose.

Well anyways, hopefully you will be hearing more from me now, and I hope you are all ready for the holidays! I know I can't wait :)

Baby Bump Pictures

So today was the day to get the pictures done. I must say it was a little awkward, I mean I love taking pictures, but usually I'm in control of the shoot, I\m never the model. They turned out pretty good, he was definitely a good photographer, I suppose I just didn't realize how much weight I've gained since I've been avoiding full length mirrors and cameras for a while. But we still got some cute shots, which I will share :)

So we do have a few cute shots :) I'm so thankful that Phil's good friend did them for us, I think the pictures turned out gorgeous <3
