I have a sister, and her name is "Pregnant"

Thank you all for your lovely Christmas wishes! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and a joyful celebration of Christ’s birth. Ours involved cake for breakfast, some fierce Dominion and Blokus playing (my brother in law has become a Blokus terror) and some Harry Potter watching. A certain member of my family has now seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 4 times. In the theatre. That member’s identity will remain private for his or her safety. But more about all of this later, because over Thanksgiving my sister Heidi graciously allowed me to take half a million pictures of her. And if I don’t share them now, she’s going to have her baby and then it will be too late. Behind the times. Old news. And as you all know, this blog is about minute to minute live action. That’s why I’m still talking about my weekend with the Pioneer Woman a mere month after it happened. Yup. Yeppers.

Anyway, on to the good stuff. Heidi and her glowing, gorgeous self.

Her due date is coming up in the next week or so, and hence the first grandchild will enter the scene for my parents. The first nephew for me and Erica. The first snuggedyumpaggis for everyone.

Heidi and I share a similar physique, so I have asked many studied questions in order to determine what pregnancy may be like for me if I choose to engage in such an activity. Or rather . . . if I am blessed with it.

She was glowing.



And she didn’t even look pregnant from behind!

Dare I share that she has no swollen ankles or stretch marks?

I dare.

If this is what I have in store for me, I say: bring it on.

Erica goofed off in the background. This picture speaks volumes about the flavor of our sister time.

Little James is going to be one lucky little boy.

A few more pictures tomorrow . . .

    Jenna, she is mega gorgeous! And those pictures are amazing. You can definitely SEE the glow, if you know what I mean. You’ve got good genes in that family, girl!

    Pregnant is precious! Thank you for sharing… Blessings to your sister, pregnant now and soon to be MOM, and to this soon-to-be Dad! Blessings to you, too, Jenna, and to your husband…

    Oh my GOODNESS….I am so jealous of your gene-pool!!! Heidi is the picture of a healthy pregnancy….how lovely. She should definitely do the whole baby belly thing again & again 😉 You are so lucky to possibly have that in the cards for you. I can see all 3 of you sisters having beautiful pregnancies and babies! Thanks for sharing the photos!

    Your sister is absolutely beautiful. I hope I glow that much if I’m blessed with pregnancy! I can hardly stammer out anything coherent because…well, she doesn’t need any words to accompany her photos. 🙂

    And the fact that you can’t tell she’s pregnant from behind…I am AMAZED.

    how precious! Jenna, I can’t believe she is due in a week or two- she hardly even looks like 5 months… incredible! Heidi, you’re beautiful- many blessings to you over the next months and years to come!!!

    Awesome, gorgeous, keepsake-quality photos, Jenna. Your sister and her sweet baby James will treasure these forever. You should make copies and start a baby book for him now. Capture each moment so he can see them when he’s older and having his own babies. Best wishes for a perfect delivery. And I can’t believe that “from behind” photo. So. Very. Jealous. Lie and tell me it’s Photoshopped! (wink!)

    Your sister is way too gorgeous for her own good and her lack of nasty pregnancy related body stuff is going to get her into trouble with jealous stretch-marked women!
