Monthly "Baby Bump" Session 6 - November 13, 2009
Photos taken by Sylvia Flores
(The progression shot will be uploaded here soon. Sylvia is still finishing that one up.)
I keep saying each time how amazing Sylvia’s photography is. I love how beautiful the photos look. It is such a blessing to have her come out each month and photograph the growth of our little miracle.
We are currently 41 days until our due date. Reuben and I took our Childbirth class this weekend and learned a lot. It was great to meet other couples that are due right around the same time we are. We are still the closest to the 1st baby of the year. We hope that Evelyn will decide to make her appearance as the first baby born in Hood River for 2010 because there is special recognition in the newspaper and also a bunch of free goodies. How great would that be?
I am still feeling wonderful. The pregnancy has been very easy on me. The only thing I keep feeling is very tired. It takes me longer to do things now too but all that is to be expected. What a miracle it is to feel her move every day inside my belly. She is such an active girl. I keep saying it feels like a gymnastics class going on in my belly.
Another wonderful moment: Evelyn was not moving in my tummy and Reuben decided to sing right into my belly. As soon as he started to sing, Evelyn began moving around to where she was situated to hear him better (her head more positioned to where his mouth was touching my belly). It was so amazing to see how she was responding to his voice and his singing. I cannot wait to see Daddy’s little girl respond to his voice once she is born. What a beautiful connection they will have.
I love this Miracle of Life!
