I have been having fun taking maternity pictures, and I hope to do it weekly from here on out. I had professional pictures taken during my first two pregnancies and I have several of those hanging in the bedrooms, plus I'd like to frame a few of the ones from this pregnancy. I'm not really sure how to display them all though, without our bedrooms looking like some sort of creepy shrine to my being pregnant.For the last month or so, Noah has been getting up before 5:30 a.m. every morning, and he doesn't take very kindly to my trying to cuddle him back to sleep. I am very much NOT a morning person and this is really starting to wear on me. I don't want to get up before sunrise every day. The last two days he has slept until almost seven, so I was feeling relieved that I'd get to start sleeping longer again, but this morning he was ready to go at 5:04 a.m. Yuck. I keep wishfully remembering the days when Emma used to fall asleep nursing sometime around midnight, then I'd stay up until 2:00 or so, and then we'd both sleep until 10:00 or 11:00. My body clock is much more suited to that type of schedule.

Emma seems to be having the time of her life at my mom's house. Noah and I are driving there this afternoon and I'm very excited about seeing her again.

What cute belly pictures!

Have fun at your Mom and Dad's.

Dude. If my pregnant belly had looked like that, my house would totally and unabashedly be a shrine to my pregnancy (pregnancies in your case). And the fact that you're wearing regular jeans - impressive. I am six months postpartum and still wearing maternity jeans. Puke.

(oh, and I found your site through KCAP - in case you're wondering where this weird belly-ogler came from).

You look wonderful, Sarah.

That is interesting about your body clock. I'd much rather rise at 5am than stay up til 2. I love the early morning and its promise of a new day. My daughter is much more like you, though. She stays up late routinely and has even been known to stay up literally all night. In fact, the night she stayed up all night she was crocheting and listening to story tapes--I'd taken away her laptop!

You look great!

I'm with you on the late night/late rise schedule. =)

your belly is so cute! You could make a few canvas's like I did for abby in different sizes that would be really cool :)

Maybe you could just put a pic of your being pregnant with each baby in their own rooms (so like Noah's would go in his room, Emma's in her room, etc.) and that way you could display them but they wouldn't be all together.
