A few weeks ago, a friend of ours (who conveniently happens to be a professional photographer!) took some maternity photos for us! It was pretty informal - just on the campus of the school where we live/work. But we had a lot of fun! In anticipation of the arrival of little Van Maanen, I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you...because I most likely will never get around to it after the big day!
Little one's estimated due date was the 18th of December. It's now three days later, and we're starting to get a little more anxious! I think we've either got a really chill baby who just doesn't feel like getting a move on, or we've got a stubborn one who enjoys reminding us that this is out of our hands. I'm hoping for the former reason, personally!
Grandma and Grandpa (i.e. my parents!) arrive in Bangkok late tomorrow night, and we look forward to seeing them on Tuesday morning! Here's to hoping Baby VM gets a move on before then, so they can meet and hold the little bundle and get a full week's worth of cuddles!
We appreciate your thoughts and prayers (for patience as well as for the labor, delivery, and adjustments that come afterward!) over the next little while. We'll keep you updated as we can!
Love and blessings from our end of the world to yours. May you have peace and joy in this Christmas season!
