A camera and a bump

We've been loving our new camera, although it's still a tad overwhelming.  I've definitely played with it much more than Tom, but I thought that it was important for him to get to know some of the settings on it besides the "auto" mode that he had been using.  And since my bump is growing and I don't have a ton of pictures of it, I thought that would be a great way for us to get used to the camera (on a side note - I am fairly opinionated about professional maternity pictures.  I won't share my opinions either way - to each is own, but I knew that at this time, we didn't really have the extra cash sitting around to have them taken anyway so this was a perfect "kill a bunch of birds with one stone" situation.)  

I'll be honest...I've been hesitant to share a ton of my belly pictures as it doesn't matter how big I am compared to someone else, or how I'm carrying (if I was paid $1 for every time someone said "you must be having a boy because you are all belly", then Abigail's college fund would be set), but I'm happy with how these turned out so enjoy.  Plus, I only have the belly for a few more weeks so I'm embracing the enormity of it. :)

I LOVE them all! That camera is really great! Who took them all? A tripod? I really like the one of y'all in the driveway with the basketball. I think we all know who got schooled at Horse and Around The World! :) Only a few more weeks, and then we get to meet that pretty little girl!

Great pics! You are the cutest preggers lady. And you are far from enourmous!

Hi Colleen, I've read your blog for a bit but never commented. I can only imagine that as an athlete it must be hard to have your body go through so many changes - but YOU look adorable and that is so neat you are embracing the belly for the photos (which look every bit as good as professional ones). You will come back stronger, fitter, and faster after this pregnancy, I am sure! Good luck with the final countdown!

Those, photos are beautiful. I am hoping the best for your labor and delivery!

Colleen! I'm so excited for you as you get closer to your due date! You look fantastic, and little Abigail is going to be one lucky girl to have you as her Mom!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED all of these pics. I wish I had even done something like this. I have almost no pics of either of my pgs (one I took in the mirror in the middle of the night just before going to hospital and it I look awful). You both look great here and can't wait to see all the pics of your baby girl. Enjoy these last few weeks of peace.
