Yay! Marcus finally hooked up a scanner last night and scanned in baby Hellsten's ultrasound pictures so that I can share a few.

28 weeks pregnant; approximately 15" head to heel; approximate weight 2.5 lb

32 weeks pregnant; approximately 17" long; approximate weight 5 lbUltrasound

I had an ultrasound yesterday (38 weeks pregnant), but he is approximately 8.5 lb now and very cramped for space so it was difficult to get a good photo. He should be out very soon though, and then we can share some "real" photographs.

While we are anxiously awaiting our own baby, I managed to fit in a session with my friend Leah and her son James. I photographed Leah and John's wedding at Bleak House way back in 2005, and it is always fun to get together and catch up with my brides. With all the feeding and consoling that goes on, baby sessions leave lots of time to catch up. Unfortunately, John is busy being a marine out in California so he couldn't be in the photos, but I'm sure he'll be super excited to see new pictures of his adorable little boy.

I think that this is my favorite because it almost looks like a smile.

Marcus and I had our baby shower at Brixx Pizza Sunday and had a great time. I owe a big thank you to my friend Christa for organizing and hosting. We really appreciate all of our friends who were able to come out and celebrate with us including Matt Browne who was nice enough to take a few photos for the baby book. After pizza, we enjoyed a very delicious carrot cake from Magpies, and we didn't have to play any embarrassing shower games!

Even though I am a photographer and know that it is best to do maternity photos much earlier than the 35th week, I somehow managed to keep putting it off. Although I'm now feeling very huge with the lovely stretch marks and swollen ankles that go along with late pregnancy, we did snap a few maternity shots after the shower. For our out-of-town friends and family who have been asking about the bump, here you go. Keep in mind that the official due date isn't until September 6, more than a month away.
