I was looking over some pictures from last year....

They make me happy.

Niki is having a giveaway for some photo work, and every time I think of Niki I want to look at these pictures again.

This day was such a happy day!

I really worried about doing these photos when we first scheduled them.  I was so very glad to be doing them, and knew I would always treasure them, but they scared me.  We first planned these family pictures and maternity shots in case it was the closest we came to family pictures with Sam.

Due to weather they were postponed a week.  Which means they were taken just days after the big sit down with all the experts, when the news was delivered that we could plan for our baby to live.

I know some people get bugged with photos of pregnant bellies, but I love them!  I love this belly....

in all it's glory, four weeks before our little man made his arrival.

I always feel like my smile looks fake in pictures, but these pictures.....well that smile is the most genuine it's ever been.

Looking back on that day still makes me grin from ear to ear.

Local peeps-go check out the giveaway.
