project 52 of 2013 | color

Before you all get sick of the belly pictures…I’m sneaking in another! For this week’s “color” challenge I chose shades of pink.

Yesterday, my parents, in-laws, husband, best friend from 500 miles away, and some of our good friends threw me a surprise baby shower. My mom, of course, got me a corsage, which is the inspiration for my “shades of pink” images. Because I was on bed rest and then our first daughter was born prematurely, we had to cancel our first baby shower, making yesterday even more special. The love and support from everyone in our lives is priceless, and we can’t thank you all enough.

A little update on how Baby Girl is doing. At my last sonogram at the high-risk office, they mentioned her growth has slowed down according to measurements of her abdomen. “Nothing to lose sleep over,” the doctor told us, but because of my history they want to watch her more closely than they might for someone else. I wanted to make sure I took a second to thank everyone, some I’ve never even met, from the bottom of my heart for all of your well-wishes and prayers. They are greatly appreciated.

Alright, enough sappiness…You’re probably here from Michele’s blog. Now hop over to Nancy’s blog and see her “color” image 🙂
