There's no hiding my HUGENESS!!!!

Not that I'd even want to try. I'm enjoying this pregnancy as much as I possibly can. I'm enjoying every day of a bouncy, wiggly little girl who even though she's zapping my energy and making me pee at every stop we make, I'm so in awe of the fact that she's in there. About to be born into our family, this tiny person inside me. A whole complete little girl who will soon enough be able to survive outside of my body.

I find that I can't wait for so many things... can't wait to meet her, nurse her, hold her, see my son's face as he meets her for the first time, see Adam hold her and love on her, and see all those tiny fingers and toes. Last week I kept saying, "OK God, give me just 2 more days to get things organized before the little girl comes." This week I find myself hoping that labor starts NOW just because I feel ready. Ready to be an infants Mom again, to parent two kids (sometimes I think I'm nuts too), that I'll still be able to keep up with the house this time, and I'm just ready tomorrow marks one week until I'm due after all.

I can say that I used to be one of those people who thought, "how can there be enough love in my heart to love another child." After all I love my son completely, but after these nine months with my daughter in my womb I feel that I have more capacity to love than I ever thought. Today, I feel more confident in my parenting abilities and full of love for my family and incredibly grateful that God has blessed us dearly and wonderfully in so many ways. Incredibly looking at things from a place of gratitude always helps my perspective and outlook.

Well, the purpose of this post wasn't to be this sappy ;) but share all these pictures of my huge belly that my hubby took this weekend. You can click on the pics to make them bigger if you need to LOL!!! Did you catch Mr. Big Brother's face in the picture where he's hugging me? Silly kid!

Remember to guess my delivery stats if you haven't played already. Hopefully there's less than one week left!!!!

I always tell my 4-year old, when he feels a little jealous of my 2-year old, that my heart is so big that I could love both of them and Mommy.

He looks at me and says, "Well, my heart is big enough to love you, Mommy, my little brother, Power Rangers, Batman, Superman, chocolates, Popsicle ..."

He'll go on for the next hour.
