Just five short days before Declan made his appearance, we got our wherewithal together, picked up the camera, and snapped some maternity shots. While we tend to procrastinate, the end was coming and I realized that it was more important to capture the moment than to have perfect hair and makeup.
This photo holds a soon-to-be mama full of hope and trepidation and excitement. Unsure about what's ahead, sad about what's behind, and trying to soak in every glorious moment with the little within. I loved that feeling. The knowing that I was important, needed, the carrier of life. The kicks and jabs as he moved around, making his all-important presence known. The tightness of my belly as it accommodated over and over again for more love. I still miss it, and this is just a beautiful reminder that it happened. Even when he is wholly his, he is still mine. And I loved him from the start.
