Our Family Soon To Be...

This is Bella's depiction of what our family is going to look like when the baby is born. She started drawing with a black pen that she got at Subway in her kid's meal (that is why I look like Elvira). She started to add other colors after she drew me (all of you social workers who have taken a class on art therapy, let's not read into that, o.k.). Anyway, she drew Ez taller than herself because she wanted to draw him as "a big brother". But the best part of this picture is her depiction of the baby. Notice that it is a little girl with red hair and blue eyes. Yep, apparently Bella wants a baby sister that looks exactly like her! We are likely to disappoint!

Bella talks about the baby being a girl so much that I have even become convinced it is a girl. We are taking Bella with us to the ultrasound that we have in a week and a half. I asked her what she will say if the doctor says it is a boy and she said, "I'll just say, that's o.k.". So, we'll see how that all plays out. I have this vision of her starting to cry if the doc says it is a boy but maybe she'll just surprise us.


And here is another preggers pic.

Okay so you're STARTING to look prego, and you look amazing. It always bugs me when people say that pregnant women have a glow about them, but you really do. You look so beautiful! Bella's picture is darling too. You should keep it for your baby's book.
