Baby Coming Soon!

As I shared in my “Can’t Wait for This Afternoon” post on my individual blog this morning, Lake and I are going to have my membranes stripped this afternoon at my OB/GYN appointment. If it works, we should have a baby by week’s end. It only works 40% of the time, but here’s hoping!

Again, we as the parents would like to remind our friends and family that we’d like to be the first ones to share the news and pictures of River. Once we’ve opened those floodgates, however, please feel free to share whatever you like (as long as I don’t look completely awful in any pictures–pre-approve those before you post me looking like a ragged mess. LOL.)

We’re really hoping our little guy is coming soon, and we can’t wait to share all our wonderful, joyous news with you!


Baby Bump Pics

First of all, I want to thank my wonderful cousin Shelby Lynn Clemmons for taking these baby bump pictures for us. Lake and I really appreciate it! I know I’ve shared this entire album on Facebook already, but it’s important to me to include it on my blogs, too. I’m sorry if you’re tired of seeing them. My whole world revolves around this little boy already, and I haven’t even had him yet.

I can’t tell you the depth of my joy right now, as Lake and I wait and anticipate meeting our little boy. I hope these pictures capture it well because I know my feeble words cannot.

All I want, more than anything in the world, is to hold my little boy and kiss his beautiful face.

Mommy and Daddy can’t wait to meet you, David River Moye.

What will my baby boy look like?

What kind of personality will he have?

All I know is that he’s perfect, and I haven’t even met him yet.

I’ve carried him for nine months now.

I don’t know how much longer I can wait to hold him in my arms.

I guess caressing my belly and talking to him will just have to do until he decides to make his way into this world.

I love feeling him move.

He’s already so strong.

Still, I just can’t wait to see his little face for the first time.

I’m anxiously anticipating meeting this baby boy of mine for the first time.

Bump Pics Sneak Peek


I’m doing some touching up on the rest of the baby bump pictures that Shelby took for me the other day, but I wanted to share a sneak peek with you guys in the meantime! I’m so excited to meet my little boy, and I’m honored to be able to celebrate this baby bump. The past 9 months have been the BEST 9 months, of my life, and I can’t wait to become a mommy when I hold my son for the first time.
