19 Days Left but Who is Counting? Oh Wait Everyone Over Here is Counting!


So these 2 recently had a photo shoot to help commemorate being 9-months along (yep, they are in the final countdown days!). 




She's been rushed to the emergency room on both of her last 2 'standard doctor visits' for possibly low amniotic fluid, and it's made me crazy both times. The last one was Monday, but for the second time, it turned out to be just fine. I can't be mad at her doctor for playing it safe, but it's an instant way to get your thoughts running in directions you don't want them going. My girl is resilient though. She handled it like she handles most things, with grace and fortitude and she simply keeps moving forward, because...that's what moms and moms-to-be do. :)


This week she put together the baby's new dresser that grandma (that would be me 💓) had sent to her house (baby's got so many clothes she needed another dresser, and this one has a hutch too). I've  also had a beautiful cradle sent over, that dad-to-be assembled, but that was earlier. I've gotten tons of things for baby. I can't help it, every time I head to the store, I beeline to the baby section. I'm so excited for my second grandchild (my oldest son has my first sweet grandbabe) to be born.


The photo shoot was fun. My daughter had a lot of different poses already in mind, which made things go swimmingly easy and well. We got a lot great shots of her belly, but I thought the double hearts idea was a really cute one.


Her oldest brother and I both took pictures, testing out our new cameras. Well, his is new, and mine is the one I wrote about before, which is new to me but used to belong to him. :)


He got the more polished pictures, and I got the ones of what was going on behind the scenes. 😊


We were lucky that the weather turned out perfect. Sis saved the grass shots for last, because she knew she'd get itchy. She's smart like that... ;)  This one has shadows, so it didn't make her final cut, but I liked it, so it did make mine. :)  


This one had shadows too, but she like it because they were being goofballs. ;)


We had a good time just spending the day together, and we ended up with some keepsake photos that I think my daughter and her new sweet little family, will treasure for life. 

19 days left. In the words of the younger kids, Let's go!! 💕😍

  1. Great shots indeed. Hopefully those 19 days go off without a hitch and no more emergency room visits for her, but yeah, better safe than sorry indeed.

  20. How exciting! I love how the pictures turned out!

    I was low on fluid with Mica. I kept getting checked. They even did a stress test on him. He would not wake up! I kept jiggling him around (trying to) because they said they wanted me to push a button every time he moved, which he wouldn't. He was breach baby. They tried to turn him from the outside, so he could deliver. Stubborn boy would only turn 1/4 of the way, then bounce back. Between him being breach, not turning, me being low on fluid (I think it all went into my feet and ankles), and my birth canal being tilted funny we ended up with a c-section.

    I'm sure she will a fantastic mom! It's so exciting!

  36. What a sweet session. I am sure she's going to treasure these photos of her pregnancy once it's all over. I have 1 picture of my pregnancy with Mariah. We just weren't big into photos back then like we are these days. I do wish I had more.

    Best wishes for an uneventful last 2 weeks of her pregnancy. I'm sure she's itching to welcome her daughter into the world!
