Maternity Photoshoot

Instead of wishing away 9 months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I'd have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle. - Erma Bombeck, "If I Had My Life to Live Over".

Big thank you to my dearest one and only sister Shixian who shot these beautiful pictures for us. So glad that the photos captured the beauty of carrying our little one inside me in such an elegant way; it turned out beyond our expectations for sure. Taking wedding photos 2.5 years back were exciting, but capturing these images above felt so different. There was such a sense of love and beauty in a different way that makes the whole experience so memorable. Anyway, I can't wait to get these photos printed!

As I approach my EDD (expected delivery date) in another 1.5 months' time, I have been doing a lot of reflections lately. One of the things that I am very thankful through this pregnancy is my understanding and realization of a deeper revelation of God's love for us as His children. The kind of love that a parent has for his child is so deep that its almost unexplainable in words, and that makes me so touched to know that I have a Father in heaven who loves us in that even greater and deeper measure. How amazing to know that when you thought you know what is love, there you see another side of love. Will write more on my thoughts on pregnancy, meanwhile have a lovely weekend!
