So I think this might be my first of many middle of the night post as I sit with a cuddly sleeping baby on my chest. I am trying to stay positive and think “Hey at least I can get some work done that I didn’t have time to do during the day right? ” as the bags under my eyes grow darker and darker. hehe. Rowan hasn’t quite conquered the sleeping on her own thing yet. I won’t complain because she is just so adorable to hold while she sleeps. Anyways, last friday after my midwife appointment we found out I was 3 centimeters dilated and was given the impression that the baby was coming that night. I called my parents and being so excited they packed the car and came out our way to stay. I was a little nervous that they were driving out and getting a hotel when I really didn’t even know the baby would def. come that weekend, luckily she did, just not on Friday or even Saturday like we had thought. My parents and sister were staying in a hotel by the hospital and Friday night Kev and me couldn’t have thought of anything better than to make use of the hotel pool. Swimming and being pregnant are made for one and another. It feels so good. You don’t even feel pregnant!
My sister is a super amazingly talented photographer. She has this perfect way of capturing moments that seem to be better than anyone I know. I kinda wish her job was just to follow Kev and me around and document our life.
Her are some of the pictures she took that night. I didn’t think they would have so much meaning when she was taking them but now I look back at Friday night as being very special. It was a night spent with my family and Kev as we eagerly and nervously awaited Rowan’s arrival. Kev played with our underwater camera that night. I am super excited to see how the pictures come out!
So as you can see my first guest blogging post didn’t go up today. I decided to keep everything till Monday and start fresh then. On Monday I will be kicking off the series with a special style file myself explaining the project. Lets just say it has a little to do with my obsession and appreciation with art & art history… Stay tuned!!
Two last things before I wish you all a happy weekend
Both my sisters are coming home this weekend to visit Rowan. I am so excited I could jump up and down and that is saying a lot when you just popped out a baby!! haha.
