39 + 40

I’m popping in from my maternity leave for just a minute to share my two final weekly maternity pictures. I figured I’d better post them before my 40th week was up (which is tomorrow).

This first week home with Buck has been so fun. Yes, we’re all a little sleep deprived, and Peanut has had a few moments of unhappiness and jealousy, but when I think about how these two sweet angel babies are mine, none of that matters and I feel like the luckiest mama in the world.

Ok, as you were… 🙂
