Monthly Photo Project – September

This is the last month that the photo challenge will include some sort of self-portrait, and it’s just crazy to think about!!! I was tempted to try to set up another “real” self-portrait with the tripod & good lighting, but then something started happening, and I just knew that’s what I wanted this month’s photo to be – even it means they aren’t the prettiest/most perfect of photos.

Peanut has been so sweet with “Baby Sister” and wants to touch or kiss my baby bump a lot. Recently, she often decides that after we read her a book, it’s then her turn to “read” it to the baby. She turns the book toward my bump teacher-style so that her little sister can see the pages, and it’s just about the cutest thing ever. The “reading” really ends up being her just saying what’s on the page – usually accompanied by her pointing to the book and then tapping her hand on my belly to make sure Baby Sister is paying attention.

It’s also usually accompanied by my heart swelling to the point it might burst.

Aaand it’s the point and pat move… LOVE that you can see the paint evidence of a school-day art project on Peanut’s hand in the one on the right. It’s those little things that get so easily forgotten, but the days of finger paint art projects will soon be gone for her, and I’m glad to have the memory of these days frozen in time.

Peanut, I can’t wait to see you officially become a big sister in the next few weeks!! You’re doing a great job of it so far.
