"Not So" Wordless Wednesday

In honor of my birthday (today!) I'm going to post some pictures of a very bittersweet period in my life - my pregnancy. The first couple of pictures were taken almost as an afterthought. I said to my sister "I suppose I should have some pictures of me while I'm pregnant, shouldn't I?" and she agreed. Hence, on my birthday, some pictures were taken. I was 29 years old, in my 29th week of pregnancy on October 29. Tell me that isn't spooky!

Then, a few weeks later we celebrated Thanksgiving!
There is only one picture of Muffin's Dad and I during the pregnancy. He came to visit me in the last few weeks before her premature birth. Mmmm, can we say "strained?" Yeah.

My final pregnancy picture is a couple of days before her arrival. My sister and I were shopping in Seattle and decided that a little picture-taking was due. And so was Muffin! The next time I went Christmas shopping my water broke. Along came Muffin!


Muffin, your Dad and I both love you very much. Even though he and I weren't meant to be, YOU were meant to be. You changed both of our lives - for the better! Thank you, baby.
