Ready

Tomorrow morning we go in to be induced and we should have our baby boy in our arms by this time tomorrow night. I am SO ready... at least as ready as I can be. The crib is set up, the car seat is in the car, the clothes and blankets are all washed and folded neatly in their drawers, the stroller is all set up, the house is (mostly) clean and organized, the kids are prepped, arrangements have been made for the next few days... I'm sure there is more, but we are ready! I am ready physically and emotionally as well.. I am so tired of being pregnant (although I have tried to enjoy it as much as I can, seeing as this is my last) and I am ready to meet this little guy face to face. I received a beautiful priesthood blessing from my sweet husband a couple hours ago and I have felt so much peace since then. Anyone who knows me well knows that I tend to worry A LOT and I am so grateful for the priesthood and for the blessing. Now I can relax and enjoy the experience instead of stressing about things that might happen! I haven't taken a single pregnancy picture this entire pregnancy (I know, what kind of scrapbooker am I?) so tonight we set up an impromptu photo shoot in our garage and took a few pictures to commemorate my pregnancy with Coleman. Here are a few of my favorites:
These were a challenge to get... let's just say the kids weren't exactly cooperative and the lighting was not great, but, they turned out okay and we got some great individual shots of each of the kids (see sidebar). (The one of Max is a little dark... I edited it weird, but I'll fix it when I get back.)









































Check back tomorrow night... we'll try to have 
pictures of little Coleman up as quickly as possible.

If I looked as good as you do pregnant I would take pregnancy pictures! I don't think I have a single picture of me being pregnant, I get sooo BIG!!! You could pose in a bikini being pregnant and still look good. Really cute pictures!
