Pregnancy Thus Far | 34 Weeks

Sunday, May 01, 2016

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this post will be worth at least a million!  I went through my iPhoto library and pulled a bunch of pictures that I might add to her baby book, should I actually get started on it. This is an unedited authentic look at these past 8 months. These past 34 weeks have been an interesting emotional journey and I can say with certainty we are ready for our little Colette and looking forward to the addition she’s going to be to our family.

A surprise Paris trip in September leads to an even bigger surprise a few weeks later.

We chose to reveal the news to the kids on a special bench where we’ve launched butterflies and started many many walks from.

After 4 days we were released to come home on bed rest.

Not the “baby” for much longer, I think Lawson missed me! I’ll take every snuggle I can get before my boys all the sudden seem so big and grown up.

Beautiful, thoughtful, humbling, gracious meals from friends. I had thought I could do this whole pregnancy and recovery on my own this time, after needing so much help with the boys’. 

What’s coming up? I have some additional testing and monitoring in the next few weeks that may determine an earlier due date for baby. Until then, we are hanging here at home!

  1. How I love every single picture! I soaked each one in. Your pregnancy has been so extra beautiful and special, and I know, trying at times. But you have done incredibly well! So proud of you, KK!
