I Now Admit That I Am Insane

When I was pregnant with Addison — I was so cute!

I think I was the best looking during my third, and final pregnancy than I was with my boys. My middle son I looked like I ate everything I came in contact with despite the diagnosis of gestational diabetes, and my first son well … I was just sick all the time!

When I got pregnant with Addison, I only really had an issue with strong smells. I never got sick, never threw up, only gained a handful of pounds and overall felt amazing, minus all the stress her ultrasounds and complications caused.

Every December my aunt makes a calendar with photos of the family from the previous year. Well the 2012 calendar includes a hand full of great pictures of me during my pregnancy, and I started to think about another child. HA!

We all know that isn’t possible since I have my handy dandy IUD in place which will not be moving anytime soon!

But the lapse in sanity brought me back to getting ready for Addison this time last year, and how much has really happened in the past year.

I wanted to share some of my favorite pregnancy pictures with everyone … just because it is always fun taking a walk down memory lane right?

Ever have a moment when you found your pregnancy day dreams pushing the brink of your sanity?

    That is about as big as I got with Addie, she was a petite little five pounder when she finally emerged!

    I think this is one of the only pictures I took with my husband my entire pregnancy.
    But it is probably my favorite from my maternity photo session.

    This is one of the ways we announced her name. Until this time she was Little Miss A.

    They loved her from the time they could really grasp the concept that they were going to have a little sister, and still today... they love her like crazy!
