You Capture: Yellow

note: my fave lens, my awesome 50mm is broken :( sad SAD day...

also.. the BIG announcement! Last week, I was sick and couldn't participate... *sad day* This week, I was just bad and, uh, didn't look for yellow in my everyday. But today, as I was getting ready for my appointment and trying to figure out what I would photograph, it hit me. I am wearing yellow!! Sweet action! So here's my one photo...

There's a few things I have to say about this photo... First, hello thunder thighs... maybe it's time to retire these maternity pants? a little snug perhaps? Yeah, I noticed they felt tighter when I put them on today. And I'm only up 5lbs from my start weight. BP was good today, surprised it wasn't high since I was so anxious. AND you'll notice the bed is made this week, unlike in last week's photo, the dirty clothes are out of sight. I got some of them washed, still a ton to do, but hey, we're a family of 5.5, laundry is always piled high!

So we get to the appointment today, my Momma Instincts (I SO wanna say my Momstincts! but I laugh so hard when I think about how it sounds!) are telling me for weeks now that we're having a little girl. I believe it with my whole heart, knowing there's a slight chance it IS a boy. When the wand hits my belly, you see these big-O feet. After checking them out and seeing the legs curled up, the doctor says OH MY GOSH! And I knew. I knew what he meant, although I couldn't SEE it for myself yet, like with the other kids. It's a boy. With boy parts. You could sorta tell, though not as prominently as you could with Jonyn. So, yes people, we have to pick a new name. I was wrong. But really, I couldn't be happier! There was not a single feeling of disappointment. Not one. I worried how I'd react if I was wrong. And no, instead, I'm happy. I know what my baby is, and so far, he's healthy. And I'm happy. I'm excited! I'm nervous about four rowdy boys in my house AT ONCE, and the years when they eat like bottomless pits... by oh how my house will be full with the sound of children for years! Plus, I'll admit, I'm happy because... [I might have FIVE kids]. I could do that. And so could my husband. He said today that HE wants what he wants, and he WANTS a girl! And he said to take that comment for what it's worth! Well, in my heart, I know there will be one more baby, I've felt that since we've KNOWN about baby four.

My heart is SO incredibly FULL. I love my life, my God, my family, my boys....

  2. Congratulations! I was praying for you all morning; that everything would be healthy with this little one, that the ultrasound tech would be able to tell you the sex, and that God would protect your heart from feelings of disappointment if it was a little boy. I love you and I'm so happy to hear that you're happy. *hugs* (and oh how I wish that I was actually there to hug you for real)
