17 Weeks at Alivila

Tuesday, April 2, 2013


It's a little awkward posting photos of just me each week, but such is life when you live thousands of miles away from family! And, when your husband is far away too.

Can you tell baby is growing!? I know it every morning when I put my hand on my belly and it feels a little bigger than the day before. That and almost every night when I wake up so ravenously hungry I have to eat.  Aaand each time I put on a piece of clothing that doesn't fit... which seems to be most of my closet these days. I've got some goodies on the way thanks to my dear friend called online shopping.

HAPPY EASTER!!! HE IS RISEN! He is risen, indeed! Cam and I prayed together last night over the phone that our baby will know the truth of Christ and love Him all his or her days. It's such an exciting life in Him.
17 weeks and counting until we get to meet this little nugget!

  15. You're such a cute pregnant lady!! And I totally get what you're saying about sharing pics/ stuff that happens with us. Our families are far away, so they always like to see what we've been up to! Plus, you'll be really glad in the future when the baby is here and you have all these wonderful memories of the pregnancy!
