I did some new baby bump photos of the kids last week. I’m having fun planning the shower, we’re using the photo on the right for the invite. We had a slight scare yesterday when Meagan developed pelvic pain. Her doctor determined that it’s not preterm labor (a huge relief) and we’re hoping that the pain goes away soon, she still has 100 days left to incubate our little granddaughter! I love how women today wear tight tops and bare their beautiful tummies at the beach when they’re pregnant instead of trying to cover them up under tent-sized tunics. Perhaps Demi Moore’s controversial Vanity Fair cover taken by Annie Leibovitz helped spark the belly-proud movement. Now, unfortunately, we have that photo of Octo-mom’s giant baby mound, which definitely falls under the category of too much information and is enough to make any woman give up the idea of motherhood altogether and get a puppy!

Oh what wonderful pictures, Lilli… I know you ALL are so excited about this upcoming birth. Hope all goes well.
These shots are adorable! I wish I were closer so you could take some of my ever growing belly. My self portraits are not so cute…
Glad to hear all is still going well with mommy and baby!
🙂 So wonderful. She looks awesome and so cute with the baby bump.
Wow, I love this serie. They are so happy 🙂
Wonderful photos, so simple and touching.
Hi bookbabie, I’ve been off line for the last couple of months, only just got reconnected last night. Your photos are divine, I’m 20 weeks pregnant myself with my first and these have really inspired me to get out the camera and record the journey.
That’s wonderful Janie, yes, yes, yes, get out the camera and record this special time:)
great images! you’re right about the body expression now–
Beautiful photos. They both look so serene and happy.
I was one of those moms that got bigger everywhere BUT my tummy so a tight top would have looked horrendous on me with my pudgy arms.
What a beautiful series of shots! They both look so happy.
I like the tight tops and bare tummies in pregnancy these days too. Perhaps that’s because I have another granddaughter on the way. 🙂
Wow, I love those pictures you took! I wish I could have you do ones like that for me! Although my belly is not quite as cute as your daughter-in-law’s!
Excellent B&W series.
You will all always treasure these captures of a moment in the life of your family.
These are wonderful! I love how you posed them. Great lighting too.
