Carter's Belly Shots

I don't mean to depress everyone every time they click to read a new post of mine.

This is my life. Right now, it doesn't feel good. And the good that is happening doesn't seem to matter much to me. But I'm not trying to make everyone feel sorry for me either.

So, to bring a lighter tone today and to keep in tune with pregnancy, since I posted a letter to Carter yesterday, I thought I'd share some belly shots with you that my dear friend Vicki took while we were in Panama City Beach together. Besides, you've only got one week to enjoy them before Carter arrives. Yikes.

I've never had belly shots done before, and I always regretted it. I'm not a 'bare all' belly person myself, but they're sweet memories and I honestly don't have any real pregnancy photos from either of my first two kids. I was determine to keep a better account of this pregnancy, and I was looking forward to taking some photos with Jeremy, since I have only one of him with my pregnant belly.

I can't describe how it pains me that he couldn't be present for these photos. But we made him a part of it, and I will cherish these photos forever. They turned out beautifully. Here are some of my favorites:

You can check out the rest of them on Facebook. Hope you enjoyed. Thanks, Vicki.

You could not have done a better job honoring Jeremy if you tried.

That ring, resembling "unending love" mixed w/ images of your new little prince, are simply perfect.

May 2011 bring you more and more surprises and blessings to start the journey of healing your broken heart...

Hi Vee, I read your blog but somehow everytime I go to say "hi" and comment, my fingers hesitate.
I want to tell you I am praying for you but don't want to sound all pious at a time when God is hard to understand. I want to say that my heart breaks for you but don't want to sound like I think I understand what you are going through, because I don't.
So all I can say is "hi". Hi Vee.
Love from Sammy across the sea

dont apologize for "depressing" people during your grieving process. you are a real person with even more real feelings and i imagine there arent many (if any..) people who've followed your blog that can even begin to understand the depth of what you and your family are going through. Our family is praying for you- may you feel Christ's love surround you :)
