She's Havin' A Baby!!

My girl really cracks me up sometimes...


She can't let a picture session get too serious at all...ever.


It's kind of hard to hold the camera still when you're laughing....
But eventually she settled down and we got some good ones, out behind her house, taken quickly because we have a feeling it will be any day now....





It's almost surreal seeing your daughter at the point of delivery...
I'm happy for her and her husband...
thrilled at the thought of meeting our precious little grandson.


Seeing a new family formed is a blessing, I'm so glad I can be here to witness it...



So proud of the trouper she is...no whining or complaining, she's brave and hard-working, getting everything ready for her little guy, yet I know deep down she's a little scared, too.


It's always that way for first time mothers.



She and her husband will soon experience that awe,
the amazing miracle that birth is...
Very,
very
soon!


And they'll fall in love with this little person,
Just like daddy and I did with her!

Great pictures and love how you are capturing the last few days of her pregnancy. I agree that it is surreal watching your own child get ready to become parents. I was blessed to see 5 of my grandbabies come into this world. Enjoy the little angel when he arrives. Have a great weekend :)

Oh Joni. She's breathtaking. So pretty. (You are such a good photographer, too). And look at that beautiful countryside as the backdrop. This little boy is going to have a great life. I can't wait to meet him. I hope before the angels push him through that they whisper in his ear that he has a grandma waiting for him on the other side that will love him more than he can imagine.
