13 weeks and baby bump pictures

September 25, 2011
Dear Baby,
Today you are 13 weeks old, in my belly, which means you are the size of a peach. About 3 inches from the top of your head to the bottom of your bottom. Oh! And you're getting your fingerprints today too! I thought that was pretty cool! (Both my ring finger tips have swirls on them, so I'm curious if you will have anything similar to mine!)
Your dad took my first baby bump profile photos today, which was quite eventful... first I had to find the skinniest clothes to wear so I could look as skinny as possible! I figure it'd be good to see where I start, how I progress, and where I end up to be, before I hold you in my arms. So, anyways, I found my skinny pants and gave your dad my phone to take the picture on. Then we headed into our room with the darker turquoise walls and I stood sideways so he could take the picture. And I stand there, and I stand there, and then he FINALLY takes the picture! But it didn't turn out, because he was too close, so I tell him to get on the bed, so he's further away, but then he stands on the bed and takes a photo from too high up, which was a really bad angle for me! Haha! So then I tell him that he has to sit or kneel on the bed, so he can get a profile photo from right in front of me. As I stand there waiting and waiting for him to figure out the camera, again, I'm like, hurry up! I'm standing there, sucking in my belly, so I can look skinny, holding my breath, and he's taking his sweet time! Grrr! He finally got a good photo, though!
And let me just tell you, he's going to be such a good daddy! He's so patient and loving and he shows that to me every day!
Very true, Lori... okay, I've added one of the photos, although it doesn't really show anything! LOL Apparently, I can hide a peach pretty well! But, baby, you're in there! And I can't wait to hear your heart beat again this Wednesday!
