I was so fortunate to have my sweet friend Janssen of Photography by Janssen take on the task of photographing my own family this fall. Of course in true "Photographer's Child" fashion my kids were completely uncooperative. 0_o But I am so very thankful for these pictures. I cannot express how important it is to GET INTO THE PICTURES! Kids grow and change so quickly! And my own kids absolutely love seeing our own family pictures hanging all over our home. Thank you so very much Janssen for capturing these memories for us I will cherish them forever!
Ohhh and this. :-)
We are so excited to announce we will be welcoming Baby Hinds #3 in March! Chris and I have done a pretty great job of keeping this baby a secret for 18 weeks.
Noah and Aslinn are excited beyond belief about having a baby in the house. They are constantly kissing my belly, singing the baby and talking about all of the fun they will have together when the baby comes out. We are hoping to have both of the children present at the birth of this baby, God willing the birth will go smoothly.
This pregnancy had a bit of a rough start with extreme all day sickness :-( I am happy to report that the second trimester has been a lot kinder to me and my body. I have to admit this pregnancy has been the hardest by far. But the amazing gift of carrying a growing human outweighs feeling horrible any day.
Baby is a mover and shaker for sure and is measuring great. We will be finding out the sex in just a few short days. Aslinn insists it is a girl and Noah insists it is a boy. Chris and I have absolutely no idea but of course we are just praying for a healthy and happy child.
As with Aslinn we will NOT be sharing the baby's name before birth. The kids have their own list of names that have been swirling around:
Not exactly sure any of those are up our alley but we will keep them in mind ;-)
