We may have gone through a few hurdles to make this photoshoot finally happen, but Charlotte and her Mama made my job so easy once we did. 

Look closely or you might miss it; Charlotte's going to be a big sister! I have a feeling she'll handle the adjustment really well <3

A person's first pregnancy can be so special. There's all sorts of time to plan, prepare, and pick out all of the adorable baby goodies. Partners can be so sweet and even if they don't want to, they'll rub your feet.

And then there's the second pregnancy. When people ask you how you're feeling you typically say, "Good. I mean, I'm tired, but good." Which translates to, "Oh...ya, I forgot I was pregnant. I'm exhausted from chasing my toddler and working. But I don't have time to remember that I can't breathe, so I guess I am good" There aren't usually foot massages the second time around and the pregnancy self pity is at an all time low because there just isn't time.

Although I will admit that I wish I HAD done more of these things, because relaxing isn't exactly on my agenda anymore, I really wish more people would have reminded me to enjoy my time with my baby bump. The thing is, while that nine months (or ten) feels so insanely long at the time, it's actually so short.  Although it is WAY more fun having baby in the world to play with and love, baby time in the womb is so special. If we do decide to have more children, I won't have the opportunities I did with just one child because the craziness of life will inevitably get in the way. Baby number one, bump number one, delivery number one...Oh man, it just doesn't get any bet...
