Baby update & Maternity Art photos!

I am posting some of my maternity photos that we took when I was about 30 weeks. It was very important to me to get maternity photo's with this little one, because I didn't really take any with Ethan and I always wished I had....

These pictures are really artistic and also pretty intament, so I would have to say I am feeling a little shy about posting them, but this is mainly to show my friends and family. I think they turned out great so I'll get over it!

I needed something that was going to make me feel beautiful to some degree while I have been pregnant, because Heaven knows its hard to feel beautiful when feeling you look like a cow...lol.

Ethan has been so very adorable with my belly lately. I don't think he fully understands there is a little baby in there but he will just hug my belly and give it kisses and loves its adorable to see.

Jason never forgets to give us all kisses goodbye when he leaves for work or school, I love seeing how he bonds with our new little one even though he's still in the womb, he'll talk and sing to him, try and listen to his heart beat, embraces my belly with tons of kisses for him and being patient enough to wait while the baby kicks. Its been so sweet!

Well, we have had a lot of people ask if we have settled on a name for this sweet little baby and I am happy to say that we have...I know some people really do not like it but Jason and I love it and we actually agreed on a name finally which was so amazing.

We are going with "NOAH PRESTON ". Preston is actually a very common name to use in my family its my dad's middle name and it seems like my whole family has use it in some way, but we love it. So if any of you don't like the name lie to us and tell us you do...lol

I am 34 weeks and I'm feeling like I'm 9o weeks.lol. I was having contractions to the point of going to the hospital tonight, but my doctor told me it was braxton hicks, they let down about an hour later, its funny how even with your second child you don't fully know when labor is going to hit..... I was very grateful to hear it was just braxton hicks though I want to keep the baby in the oven at least another 3 to 4 weeks.

I don't think I could have pulled those pictures off, but I am all about showing off my belly when I'm pregnant. I think a pregnant belly is the cutest thing! Thank heavens Lamon thinks so too. Or he pretends to anyway.
