35 Weeks

This week baby girl is about 6lbs and 20 inches long. Most of her bones and cartilage are really soft allowing for an easier journey as she squeezes through the birth canal (eeps!) at delivery. Her growth will experience a slowdown, both so that she'll fit in the narrow passageway and also so she can store up the energy she'll need for delivery. The fact that I'm even typing out those words in that particular order right now gives me anxious butterflies galore.. we only have 5 weeks left. F.I.V.E.W.E.E.K.S.
I've been on a steady track of the usuals and just trying to spend as much quality time with D (and myself) as I can. My mom will be here in 17 days and then all the fun really begins. Having my mama here makes it that much more real.
Today we had a very long day in front of the camera but in a good way! I can't wait to see how the pictures from our pregnancy shoot turned out and I can't wait to share them with you guys because we put a lot of thought and love into them.
Dear Baby Doll,
You're already accustomed to being in front of the camera and I can only imagine how much of a ham you'll be outside the womb. I hope you realize that the hundreds of pictures I already take will be at least tripled, so get those cheek muscles ready for some serious "say cheese" time. You're my favorite muse and I can't wait to have you here.
Love times a trillion, 
p.s. please stop kicking me in between my ribs.. pretty please?
