She's gonna have a baby!!!

It was last Sunday that it hit me, like a ton of bricks, right upside the head. I've photographed her, thrown her a shower, painted her nursery, and felt Baby D kick, but it still didn't register until now. "My big sister is gonna have a baby!" I proclaimed to Mom on the phone. "Can you believe it?!" Mom laughed and agreed how quickly time flies. Not only the past 9 months but life in general. Baby D could arrive any day now...Devin's gonna have a baby! I keep saying the phrase over and over to myself. Devin has always been the brave one. I like to think she got a little bit of it from me since I was always the one that had to check and make sure Santa wasn't still in our living room on Christmas morning. (the risk of being seen and all your presents taken back to the north pole. Oh yeah, I was a brave little girl...ha!) But Devin, she's superwoman compared to me. I guess some of it comes with being the oldest but she's totally held her own. First to try out for the cheerleading squad, first to go off to college, first to get married, and now first to have a baby. I'm inspired and amazed by her every day of my life and although I kid about me instigating bravery in her, I know that she is the source of all my bravery. I feel so blessed to have had her to look up to all these years. Her beauty, grace, love, laugh, and spirit exemplify who she is and soon she'll be sharing all that will a lucky little babe. Any day now...she's gonna have a baby!

Here are just a few of my favorite shots of Devin and Baby D...

Deep down she a country girl and she's got her blue jeans on...

Don't you just adore her round belly? I look at it and I giggle.

This one was Devin's idea and it's wonderful.

Hello Miss Sass...are you sure you've never modeled?

Gotta love that smile.

Devin, you are gorgeous...end of statement.

...and because it wouldn't be complete without a little bit of pop culture. This is definitely one of my favorites.

Happy Friday!
