Back when I was 38 weeks.

To keep track of my growing belly, I had taken Greg and Lydia out by Utah lake to snap some pictures at the end of my 38th week.  I am so incredibly grateful I did it then, because I was thinking I would have still had time last weekend to get this documented.  Little did we know, Hazel was going to make me very happy by coming six days early.  What a good girl.

I have very mixed feelings when my pregnancies come to an end.  Of course for obvious reasons, I am loving not being pregnant, like holding this darling Hazel in my arms all day long!  And not to mention being able to see my feet again is quite nice.  But the duration of pregnancy for me is really quite amazing.  Feeling those kicks and carrying that baby in your belly because they are a part of you is really something else.  All those discomforts that pregnancy brings doesn’t compare to the happiness that these babies bring with them during and after pregnancy.

But farewell pregnant Hazel months!  I am so happy she is here now where we can hold and kiss her.  It’s been such a wonderful few days since she has decided to join us.
