Pictures: The boys and their siblings in the womb

Three years ago, on the Sunday of my 38th week of pregnancy, I took one of my last "belly" pictures to document my pregnancy with Bennett (see below).

This later turned out to be a pretty significant picture as it documented the last day I remember Bennett kicking hard in the womb.  Monday and Tuesday progressed with almost no movement from Bennett.  On Wednesday morning, after a restless night's sleep, I went to the hospital to check on the baby, whom I had firmly become convinced had already passed away in the womb.  

Thankfully, Bennett turned out to be alive so we induced immediately.  This began our journey of having a child with Cystic Fibrosis.

Knowing the picture below was significant to me, I decided to "retake" the photo yesterday, the Sunday of my 38th pregnancy with Baby #3...

I feel incredibly blessed to have a picture of all three little ones - my two big boys in my arms and my baby girl snuggled inside.  I'm looking so forward to getting another picture like this but with baby girl on the outside! :)


  1. Beautiful photos! Really, really pretty.

  2. Yeah, so excited for you all. Praying for a quick, safe and healthy delivery! =)
