29 Weeks


baby Tom's for our little man to match his dad


its been almost 10 weeks now since i've posted belly pictures last. as i write this, i am 31 weeks so the belly is definitely bigger than the photos above, but i'm trying to catch up! :)

how i'm feeling:
tired
big
so happy about the name we have picked :)
extremely excited to feel actual body parts when he moves
ready to meet him
terrified to see how my life changes

the last one has been on my mind the most recently. throughout this pregnancy i've been so ready for it to be finished just so that i can meet my new son. i really have had no hesitations about the baby stuff. but recently i've had new feelings arise about how much my life will change. no doubt every change will be worth it. but it's those quiet afternoons at home or the quiet car rides with Aaron that will just be different. it will no longer to be just us, it will be the three of us. it has struck me how much more important Aaron will become to me. he already has throughout this pregnancy. i need him. he is my partner in this and i will need him even more when our little one arrives. i will need him as my partner more than i will need to him to be our little one's father. does that sound weird? it might have come out wrong but i can't think of another way to word it. i'm actually grateful for these feelings. these feelings give me reassurance that our marriage will still be the most important thing. that the baby will not over take "us". and therefore, i think we will be better parents in the long run.

i'm looking forward to:
baby showers
feeling more baby body parts
our birthing class
washing baby clothes and putting them away
setting up our crib/room (we are kinda behind, but we'll get there in time!)
