dear baby


Time is really flying these days, I am actually closer to 29 weeks at this point but these photos were taken closer to 28. I can hardly believe we will be holding you in our arms in less that eight weeks because of Mommy's funny womb. Not to worry we are watching you like a little hawk making sure you'll be just perfect before you come out into this great big world!

I still don't know for sure what your gender will be but I have my feelings about it all and just know that God has purposefully chosen you for our family so whether you are a girl or a boy you will fit more perfectly into our family than we ever could have imagined!

Mommy is more and more uncomfortable these days, lots of heartburn and leg cramping and practice contractions. But it will all be worth it and the amount of kicks and punches you give me during the day to let me know your in my tummy is so funny and crazy...you are a busy little bee aren't you!

I have my nerves about being a Mommy to four little ones and am pretty exhausted caring for your brothers and sister these days while searching for energy to do most anything but I know this season will end so soon and I will look back one day and feel so nostalgic and blessed by the years of child bearing that God allowed me to experience. What an incredible experience it has been.

I love you little one and can't wait to kiss your sweet cheeks so soon!

Love,
Mommy


These are a few images taken by my dear friend Stacy Bostrom in Southern California a few weeks ago. I am wearing a vintage 1970's Nordstrom dress that belong to my Mother before I was born. You can see more from the collection HERE and if you have yet to feast your eyes on the talent that she possess please take a look at her gorgeous and inspiring photography HERE!

  14. You look amazing & I'm happy to hear that you are more comfortable...you're almost there! The dress is amazing! I'm saving special pieces for my daughter for that very reason. She's only 2 & I have a bunch of items already so my husband is worried. Too bad!

  18. Rebekah, you look so stunningly beautiful in these pictures. Your thoughts take me back about a year or so when my little number 4 was about a month and a half away from making his appearance. He was a very unexpected surprise, and I can totally relate to the feelings you are experiencing.

    Also, seeing the intense, aching, yes sometimes very smothering love that our older kids have for our little guy has been one of the biggest blessings in my life, and I can't believe I ever questioned God's decision to give him to us at the time He chose. I do feel plenty overwhelmed at times, but now that the baby is standing up, I can see how very fleeting this time is and I try to enjoy it as best I can. I can't wait to see who your little one is!

    Can I make a little suggestion, mama to mama? Right before our little dude was born, I bought one of these http://www.mobywrap.com/ on craigslist for about $20, and if you don't already own one, you might consider checking them out. It was SO much more comfortable (and affordable) than some of the alternatives, and though the first couple of times took some practice, I can totally say that it is the best investment in baby gear I have ever made! My oldest is in 1st grade, and the baby is #4, so having the baby comfortably strapped to me really helped me be free to do the chasing after the others that I still needed to do (our 3 yr old is nicknamed "The Destructicon"...enough said). I can't believe how much easier it makes my life! However, everybody is different, so it may not be for you, but I highly recommend considering it.
