Looking Forward to This:

If our baby girl is anything like me, she will get a bit of hair around her second birthday...but with hair or without, I am SO looking forward to cuddling with her!

I recently photographed a newborn and spending time with a tiny baby made me so excited to meet Sariah Faith.

Prepare yourselves to see lots of photos of her once she is born!

Magic Wand

I have been feeling the irresistible desire to clean and organize absolutely everything. Yesterday I organized the tea basket, container cabinet and the recipe books. I created room in the kitchen for future bottles and sippy cups.

John broke down a twin bed that will have to go to make room for a changing table and we moved out a bookshelf. The future nursery is currently a room full of piles and even with the irresistible desire to clean and organize, I am starting to wish I had a magic wand.

I want a magic wand that will go through books, reorganize the closet, set up a changing table, paint a crib, do the laundry, break down a pile of cardboard boxes…the list goes on and on.

With less than 4 months to go until we meet our little girl, I am finding myself anxious to get the house ready. I can’t wait to see her crib and changing table set up, her clothes and diapers organized, and above all, I can’t wait to see her sleeping in her room!

I had a dream two nights ago that I went into labor super early and we didn’t have anything ready for the baby. We didn’t own a car seat, diapers or clothes…and I am sure that dream is the reason I now feel like we have to get ready RIGHT NOW! And a magic wand would help.

In case I end up not finding this magical wand, I have been creating “To Do” lists that will hopefully keep me on track.

Four Months to Go

In about 4 months we will be meeting our little girl!

I cannot believe how fast time is going by. When we first got pregnant we shared with family and friends that we felt like we had no idea what we were doing but we had to make decisions such as: baby names, midwife vs. doctor, birth center vs. hospital, prenatal tests, to move or stay where we are, which stroller is the best for our lifestyle, cloth diapers or disposables…the list goes on and on. At the time it felt like we had a lot of time to ask for advice, read, research and decide what we wanted. However, while many of those decisions have been made, it seems that time is evaporating right in front of me and at times I still feel like I have no idea what I am doing.

When I freak out about how soon she will be arriving, John reminds me that we will be ok! I love him SO much for loving me when I am a complete mess.

Ready or not, I am beyond excited to meet the little person that loves to move around inside of me! Feeling her move might have become one of my favorite things in life and I can’t help but smile when she becomes extra active when John puts his hand on my belly. I don’t know if this is possible, but it feels like she knows when her daddy is trying to feel her move and she totally shows off!  
Sariah Faith, you are so loved!

This Year's Mother's Day

Yesterday I got to hear a lot a of people wishing me "Happy Mother's Day"... and it was so weird to think of myself as a mother. Although I don't quite feel like a mother yet, I sure am excited to celebrate next year's Mother's Day with my little girl!

I hope I can be the kind of mother my mom has been for me. I feel SO blessed and overwhelmed that God gave me a mother I admire, cherish and absolutely love! Sariah is already blessed to have the grandma she has...and the thought of seeing my mother spending time with my daughter brings so much joy to my heart. Praise God for his blessings!!!

We are Having a Girl...

...and her name is Sariah Faith Nobile.

The name Sariah is of Hebrew origin, meaning "Princess of the Lord."

We pray that our daughter will grow up knowing how precious she is to her Father in heaven and that she will always choose to live by faith:

"being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1

We can't wait to meet our little girl!

Catching Up to the Present

It has been a while since the last time I I thought I would give you all a little update on what has been going on with the Nobiles!
Right after Easter I hopped on a plane and headed to San Francisco to spend some time with a dear friend. I flew stand-by and I was so thankful everything worked out! I even made it through the airport security without having anything taken away or being chosen for the 'special security' search.

Here are a few photos from my trip:

This is what I learned while visiting San Francisco:
  • It costs a lot of money to ride the trolley.
  • The weather can look a whole lot like Seattle's.
  • People seem to be terrified of the rain...and every single person carries an umbrella.
  • The hills are absolutely breathtaking.
  • The Bart is incredible. I mean, I was under the water and didn't even know!
Shortly after returning to the beautiful Washington, I started getting ready to photograph a wedding in Anacortes. I am still in the process of editing images, but here is a little preview of the beautiful couple:

More photos will be posted soon:

I know this post is already too long...but I have to share one more thing with with you all! Ready? I felt the baby move!!!! The only way I can describe how it felt is by saying that it felt like someone was trying to tickle me from the inside. I cannot wait to meet this little person. :)
