"a portrait, once a week, for the year of 2014"

week ten.

another bittersweet moment. as the husband and i got to spend some quality last couple days together before he left, it all went by too soon. coming to realize that in fact everything is happening. baby will be here soon. and their daddy will be quite a ways away, keeping our fingers crossed he gets to come home to meet our first born. but realizing that we can't get our hopes up. 

i miss everything. the way we hold hands, those sweet forehead kisses, the constant rubbing of my belly to say hi to baby, those arms to be wrapped in at night. as much as a blessing this is to our little family, i can't help but wish he was still able to be here with me, as it gets harder to bend down to tie my shoes, to get up from couch, to help in the last preparations before baby makes it's arrival.

i know there is a rhyme and a reason to all of this, and each day i will be thankful because it's one day closer to my husband meeting our little one.


  1. I'm sorry! Praying for you. Lots of love and support.

  2. Awe girl. :( Sending you huge hugs. xoxo I KNOW it will all work out.

  3. I wish I lived closer, I'd come hang out with you all the time. Hoping this reason becomes apparent soon, I know how hard it can be to wonder why things happen the way they do!

  4. Awe, this makes my heart hurt for you. Just know he will be home before you know it. Which doesn't make it any easier, at all. But I hope it can be a little light in the darkness. Let me know if you need anything.

  5. awe, sending so many hugs your way!
