Postapalooooooza!

As I mentined in my last post, there's a LOT of ground I need to cover!

Sorry for the lag, but we have been really busy, and if we're not busy, then I am trying desperately to rest....and deflate my snausage legs and feet. Oh, that crazy edema!

It's making me kinda antisocial, truth be told. I just want to stay home, in my underwear, under a fan, eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

This doesn't bode well for social-interaction....

But I digress--Let's get down to it.

4D ULTRASOUND PHOTOS:

DO it! They really are amazing. Yes, they are pricey, but totally worth it! Seeing your baby's face as it's starting to take shape, is mind-blowing. We also spent a little more to get the DVD of the actual ultrasound, which was a TRIP and a HALF. You get to see the baby moving in real time. We saw Owen kicking, SMILING, and moving his little mouth! He looked like he was talking to us!

Totally made me cry.

These are my faves:

Chubby Cheeks!



Baby Feet



Tiny Smile...(and he totally looks like Hubby's lil' bro)



Cutest Baby EVER!!! In my totally unbiased opinion.




FIRST BABY SHOWER:

It was really lovely. The house was filled with fabulous women, scrumptioussss cupcakes, and adoooooorable baby gifts. Owen made out like a bandit. He got tons of cute clothes and some really cool toys. We also had a diaper raffle which was a huge success.

We are so lucky to have so many people in our lives who are as excited about Owen's arrival as we are!

The Loot



We have NO IDEA where to put everything, and we still have another shower to go! Haha.

THE MATERNITY SHOOT:*

I decided that I HAD to do a maternity shoot. That was an odd urge for me, as I HAAAATE having my picture taken, and the fact that I am currently the size of an abnormally large Manatee, but nonetheless--my sentimentality won out.
This could be our only child. I want to document as much of this process as possible!

I asked a friend of mine who is super-creative to snap the pictures for us, and thankfully, she agreed! She did such a beautiful job!

Somehow though, I ended up mainly unclothed...I'm still not sure how that happened.

I went into the shoot thinking we were going to to the whole "wholesome-jeans-and-tanks" look, and instead, there was just a whole lotta me hanging out!

But ya know what?

My Hubs and I are not of the wholesome type. These pictures are so US. I'm glad that I ignored my insecurities and just went with it.

Looking at the the pictures made me so emotional!

It's crazy to think that in two years we've gone from this:



Engaged-Summer 2007

To this:



Wedding-Spring 2008


Allll the way to here:







Expecting-Spring 2009

It has been a life-changing, but amazing couple of years.


*There are tons more pictures on my facebook. Uploading on here is kinda tedious.

You are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! It's so cool to put a face (and beautiful baby belly!) to a name...err...username. :)

Congratulations...I can't wait to see Owen's beautiful chubby cheeks when he's out of your body. :)
