35 Week Baby Belly

Mama's Wearing: Vintage dress, thrifted

Yesterday was Mother's Day here in NZ and though the Bean isn't here yet Phil treated me to a delicious dark chocolate bar and a home cooked dinner to die for. We had bacon wrapped eye filet steaks, baked potatoes (for me), rice (for Phil), steamed broccoli and green beans. He gave me a back rub and we watched Masterchef.

With only 5 weeks to go until the due date we are savoring these evenings together as a small two-person family.

These days I can feel the little Bean's legs and feet against my belly. I can feel the heel and sometimes I'll give it a little tickle and the Baby moves the foot away. SO SWEET! Around 33 weeks the baby was breech but finally did the ol' flip around. I am so thankful!

Thank you for the wonderful day, Husband! I love you so much!! I appreciate everything you do for me, like helping me in and out of bed and getting me the hot water bottle for my back. I cherish the sleepy morning kisses you give me before you go to work and the little texts throughout the day. You are my love and I am so incredibly lucky to have you in my life. You're the best one.
