Belly Pics

Here are a few pictures from our recent maternity photo shoot. Courtney at anthologie images did them and we have been very pleased. You can see that I am not exaggerating the belly size. I am not even 7 months yet!

I am not one of those women that feels like they just "glow" through pregnancy. I was leery about taking these photos, but I think she did a great job of capturing the joy in Richard and I over this new baby. I took these pictures for the baby to enjoy someday.
Here is a link to Courtney's blog: http://anthologieimages.com/blog/?p=425





I am sorry to report that we don't have a name picked out yet...We are finding the decision to be much more difficult this time. We have a few ideas that we are tossing around, but we may have to meet her and then decide...sorry for the suspense!
I am really excited because Richard will finish up his busiest time of the year this week. YEAH! I try to be patient, but sometimes my selfish side comes out and I need more attention. Sorry honey! Richard, thank you for working so hard to provide for us. I love you and I am very proud of you!

  2. Yeah! I have been anticipating these! My favorite on her site are the last two - you both look awesome. Did you get my text? I thought you would be so proud. If Richard has to work late Friday I am a single lady that night if you want to come hang out?

  10. Jen, Richard and baby Thomas, thank you so much for sharing the photos. Pregnant is what it is and you are darling my dear! And Richard appears to be as proud as a peacock! It's so precious that you've shared the process. Regarding names -- just for consideration -- Ryan Thomas, Elizabeth Thomas (Lizzie) Emily Thomas (Emy). I love you both so much and pray for you daily

  14. you don't even know me but I have prayed for y'all so much. I lost my firstborn Shelby but nothing compares to what you went through. Anyway, I was driving down the road today and the Lord totally put y'all on my heart to pray for. Then, I was SO BLESSED to see that pregnant belly. I felt the same way about hope deferred makes the heart sick but a longing fulfilled is the tree of life when I waited on Morgan to get here. Anyway, I AM SO HAPPY for you!!!
