A few weeks ago, a fabulous artist-mama came over and took maternity photos. We did a "swap"---she took pictures and didn't charge me anything for them except my permission to use them as templates for her paintings. Thank you, Jessica! She is working on a project on bodies and motherhood. Here is her website and here are some of the photos.
No wonder I have a pulled back muscle!
This little charm is a "milagro" given to us by dear friend Sarah Shepherd. The milagro was meant to bring success to our efforts at conceiving a child.
