West Michigan Photographer // Made My Week – Vol 55!
They say that each pregnancy is different and now I understand how true that is. To say that the past few months of pregnancy have been trying would be an understatement. They have been though. I have had months and months of nausea, crazy back pain, emotional breakdowns and other issues that I don’t even want to mention! It’s not easy giving your body over to someone to live inside for 40 weeks, but it is SO worth it.
This week I am thankful for understanding. Although I’ve always known, I feel like lately I have truly grasped the concept of giving your body over to someone else much more important than yourself. Being able to carry a baby is such an amazing honor that I am proud and so very thankful to be able to do. Many mothers have it way worse and some can’t even have the opportunity to have children, so my pain and discomfort is temporary. Joe has been such an amazing man to call my husband. He works hard at his career then comes home and works hard with me on our business. He’s an amazing father who loves Addison and our new baby girl without end. He treats me with such compassion and interest…..he is truly my best friend. Getting married can be quite a jump of faith sometimes, but I feel like I hit the jackpot! Who knew that my cute 20 year old boyfriend would make such an amazing lifelong companion…?
Here are a few maternity photos that our associates, Kristi and Isabel, took for us last weekend at the maternity event. We are thankful for them!
26 weeks down, 14 to go!
