Just us.

Everyone tells you from the moment the world knows a new little one will be entering your lives that everything will change. It's a good change, but change none the less. Change that, especially as first time parents, you cannot fully comprehend or really prepare for. Change that once it happens, I have been told, that you cannot imagine your life any differently...

Yes, along the way things are already changing... Various baby items enter the house and remain out in the open as a constant reminder. When shopping, we seem to always end up in the baby section regardless of truly needing anything or not. The growing belly as a constant visual reminder. Ongoing Dr appointments. The way we look at each other, already, has changed as well. The overwhelming love we have for each other and this little being that is half him and half me. My heart is so full of love, it feels like it's going to burst!

I am so excited to meet this little person who we have waited for and loved for so long already yet sad that the time of just Charles and I is coming to an end. Having just each other for the last seven years has been great! We are thoroughly enjoying the little amount of time we have left of being, just us. Yet at the same time, we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Baby Swann any day now!

We are excited for the "just us" meaning to no longer mean Charles and I but instead, our growing family of three!

I'll leave with a few of our maternity photos courtesy of Neil Birchler Photography-

Oh gosh, that last pic is PERFECT! The belly looks great and the looks on your faces say exactly what this post said! A little teary over here as I started following your blog right when you found out about the baby. i can't believe it is time! I can't wait to continue watching you on this journey. You are so full of joy and it comes out in every post!! I love it!
