The last few weeks of pregnancy hold some of our very favorite memories as moms. The world almost seems to stop in anticipation for baby, and every tiny moment — the kicks, the wiggles, and the hiccups — are things we'll never forget.

We quietly fold and sort through baby's clothes and essentials, holding on to the excitement of finally getting to use them. We take extra naps. We snuggle the rest of our loved ones even tighter than before. And we remember that the uncomfortableness, tears, frustrations, and sorrows of the past months will soon bring one of life's greatest blessings.

Sending pregnant love!
