One of the big things always on my list for the last month are maternity photos. I'm not always feeling my most beautiful that last month but I do look back at the photos with sweet memories of this unique and special time with each of my babies and our growing family. I wish I could say I just love being pregnant. I know some women really, truly do! I don't have difficult pregnancies and I love being a mommy more than anything in the world-- but pregnancy is not for the weak! It's a tough job and it's one of the most rewarding I can think of-- but if I'm being completely honest, I do look forward to having my babies on the outside of me! That being said, I still treasure this time and the memories of the transition between family of 2...3...4...5.
So, without further ado... our maternity photos with Brooks! Brooks has a nautical-themed nursey (I plan on posting about that one of these days...) so I wanted to get near some water. Living in Colorado Springs, it's not overly easy to find water with sailboats on it (ha!) but I think the lake and the sand was perfect, especially with the mountains in the background because he IS a Colorado baby. Thanks so much to my sissies for doing these for us :) I love them!
