Space Available


It seems that my free time is being squeezed more than usual. Between sewing projects, reading, normal house/family stuff, working full time- the hours fly by fast! But I am making the time to keep my pregnancy album as current as possible. If you'd like to see all my pregnancy layouts in one spot here is my Pinterest board.

I love this layout for several reasons. I love the photo. It is true to life and really captures what is happening right now. I love the story behind it. I love that I got my feelings to paper.

Journaling:

This is a typical scene. The moment I lay down on the couch all three girls figure out a way to not only be near me, but ON me at the same time.  In all honesty, it isn’t always the most comfortable. It’s a complicated dance of feet, limbs, belly, pillows. . . 

But I try to take a step back and relish in the fact that they want to be near me. I can do this for them. I can make the space. 

My excited children fighting for room on my lap- leaning in close to tell their new sibling they can’t wait for his or her arrival.

Bennet asking questions about how I’m feeling. “How’s your leg Mom?” 

Scout wanting to use my belly as a pillow to feel Mitten nudge her in the head. 

Ellie poking me in my belly button saying “Baby Mitten in your tummy. There!” 

And in time I’ll make the space for one more.

How fortunate your girls and Mitten are to have you for their "mum"!
