Maternity Pictures

Remember my awesome friend Erica who took our pictures last fall?

     Here is a link to her photography blog - she does this to help move forward with the adoption process.
     Here are the photos we had taken last fall.

Well, Erica is wonderful and offered to take some maternity photos for me. I am so grateful, because so far my pictures are taken on my phone in the bathroom mirror. Classy. We took these last Sunday when I was almost 37 weeks (side note, I am 38 weeks yesterday!) and let me tell you that the timing could not have been better. The weather was perfect, and it was the day before Scott started surgery so he wasn't utterly exhausted yet. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

I really wanted a photo or two with downtown Des Moines in the background.
Just to show where we lived when the little guy was born.
I really like this one!

I really love Scott's face in this one while he pokes at my belly.

Another shot with downtown in the background.
And I LOVE this one.
