Anticipating Olivia

Do you know that feeling when you find out that someone you love very dearly is expecting a child?  It's something like elation, and excitement and shock and wonder all at the same time.

It's a terrific feeling!

My dear friend Chelsea's first pregnancy was one of those moments.  I can recall that she and I had prayed together on more than one occasion as to whether God would grant her and her hubs children.  Not long before, God had given a clear answer, but no proof had as yet been seen.

And then.......it was.  Olivia was.  One moment she wasn't.  And then the next moment she was.  That little teeny tiny bean grew for 36 long weeks inside of her mama's tummy.

She made her appearance a tad early, but we were glad to have her.  What a treasure she is today.  Bright, happy and always always a funny smug little thing.  She's is the most mature baby I've ever known, if that makes any sense.  But then, why should I be at all surprised.  She is just like her mother.  So like her mama.

She'll be a sophisticated lady one day, beautiful and confident, intelligent and gifted.  Love that girl.

This is a little page about that anticipation of sweet Olivia.

The photo is the result of a maternity shoot I had the honor of doing for David and Chelsea and their beautiful baby bump.  This particular shot is one of my favorites.

Hope you're having a fantastic day.
