I had planned to update sooner than now, but time has gotten away from me. Here are some pictures of my growing belly up until now. I'm a little over halfway through this pregnancy, and it seems to be flying by!
That bump looks so tiny now, but then it felt like a lot!
We found out on March 23rd that this sweet little one is a BOY! If he is anything like Mark, I'm in trouble. That sweet boy makes me melt!
Sawyer James :)
I am in full planning mode. Alyssah got her new big girl furniture this week, so we are going to set the crib soon. I'm decorating her room and the boys'. We have lots to do and things to get before Sawyer makes his debut. Thankfully I still have some time, but I'm wanting to get a lot done before summer is here, and we are busy having fun with the kids. I know my energy level won't stay either. I'm feeling great. I'm taking fewer naps and eating a lot ;) I'm over all of my food aversions except coffee but that's probably a good thing. I'm back to craving Dr. Pepper, but I'm limiting myself. Sawyer still wants cheeseburgers too! My belly is getting bigger, and I'm feeling pretty pregnant at this point. I'm feeling this little man kick and move around all the time which I love! My favorite thing about pregnancy is feeling the baby kick. And my hair while I'm pregnant! haha! But for real, feeling life inside you is the most incredible feeling in the world. Being a woman isn't always fun, but I wouldn't trade being the one God designed to carry life for the world. It's the most amazing experience, and I'm so thankful that God has blessed me with the chance to do it.
The kids talk about Sawyer everyday and are so excited to meet him. They kiss and love on my belly. I can't wait for his kicks to be strong enough for them to feel. Sometimes they are, but I can ever predict when they will be. They went with us for the ultrasound. It was so cute. They sat there so quietly and just soaked it all in. The ultrasound lady even gave them their own little picture book to keep. Mark took his to school to show his class. I just love how they love our family. I'm a lucky lady!
Hi! This is Karah Adams. I have been happily married to my husband, Christopher since August 2006. We became parents on March 4, 2008 to the most
adorable baby boy on earth, Mark Steven! He keeps me so busy and loves life! Our sweet daughter arrived on January 20, 2011, and couldn't
be more perfect. Alyssah Elaine is a beautiful addition to our little
family! Our children are the greatest gifts from God. We are blessed far more than we deserve. Hope you enjoy this little peek inside my crazy, wonderful, messy, beautiful, work-in-progress world!
