Happy due date baby bump. Today marks 40 weeks.. How did we get here?
Time has flown by and I can’t believe we’ve made it this far. Weeks have passed and so much has happend in these past 10 months and looking back I am so happy I documented some pictures for my memory.

While taking the last three pictures, these thoughts have definitely crossed my mind: will this be the last one? It could be… But here we are, three weeks further, same spot, bigger belly, baby still nice and comfy and a mommy-to-be with a heart full of patience - until now.
