In the Beginning...

...there were two!!! But, soon there would be three. I am still in complete awe over the entire process of being pregnant and having a baby. Well, equal parts being in awe and being creeped out. There is this little life growing inside your belly, which eventually makes it's way out in one of a couple of not-so-pleasant-ways, only to latch on and feed off of you for the foreseeable future. Amazing and creepy! Lucky for me, I loved being pregnant! Right up until the end, it was wonderful!!! I've been thinking about this whole process a lot lately, as Lawson has turned one and it makes me want to relive it all over again (not literally). So, let's take a little journey back to when Lawson began as a wee little dot on the ultrasound... He was an incredible, LONE (thank goodness!) blinking heartbeat...

...and I looked like this. I was eager to get huge, and didn't realize I would never look quite like this again!

By the next ultrasound, I saw his face and arms waving around! Amazing!

At 16 weeks the doctor gave me a 75% it would be a boy! We were thrilled!!!

And I was 100% showing, which was a nice change from the "I ate too much" look I'd been sporting!

At the 22 week ultrasound we were greeted with a smile!

It makes me laugh to think how huge I already felt! I had NO idea!

And the final shot taken at 35 weeks. He was born a week and half later! I can't imagine if I'd gone full term!

Life would never be the same again.
