The Last Shot

Well folks, this is it, my last pregnant belly shot with Autumn.  
I'm 38 weeks, 3 days today.  Tomorrow marks the 10 days before due date marker, which was the gestation Emma was born at.  If this little girl decides to stay inside longer than tomorrow, she'll be my "latest" baby yet.  I've been claiming that she can hear all the chaos out here and has decided to stay inside as long as possible before joining it;).  It is a bittersweet time in my heart to be sure.  Sweet because I'm so excited to meet my third daughter, to kiss and smell and nurse my sweet baby, but bitter as I cherish all the "lasts" with her.  Today I have been basking in her movements within, closing my eyes and imprinting to deep memory the feeling of life in my womb, the miracle that has graced me four times, all praise to the awesome Creator!  Each ending marks a new beginning and God is granting me peace.  The next pictures you will see here will be of our new baby girl!  Until then, we ask for prayers for a safe delivery and healthy baby.  All my love!

You look wonderful and wondering when she is going to make her debut! Hey, was wondering if you might be open to taking a few pictures of Ashley and I as pregnant sisters when I come in March... I know you'll have little Autumn, but wanted a few picts to capture this rare moment of both of us with round bellies :) Praying for you- you are a good reminder about how precious those kicks are :)
