Congrautlations Aura - such a blessing, and such a blessed child!

Natosha said...

SO adorable Aura!

My body was changing really fast. I was starting to show at 12 weeks (probably a little bloat, too) and MAN does it change fast! Every single time I walk by a mirror I check out my bump, always have. Such a miracle!

Congrats again!

This is just crazy!! It seems like only yesterday we were in high school getting grilled cheese from classic 50s. Now you're going to have your own little human being that you're responsible for. IT IS BLOWING MY MIND.

Pregnancy is the most amazing and mind boggling thing I've ever experienced. I used to get emails every week from some website that would explain exactly what was happening that week, like "This week your baby will develope eyes" and I would literally get wrapped up in thoughts about how MY body was MAKING eyeballs. Truly amazing. :]

Shandell said...

Jessica Elizabeth said...

Aura,

I have been reading your blog since you had your first livejournal account. Watching you follow your dreams, become a wife and now a mother has been an honor. You are my favorite read, I get a tinge of excitement everytime I see a new post!

Congrats to you and Michael. All of your avid readers will be following your journey into mommyhood!

Sini said...

So amazing! Beautiful pictures.. You will be amazing mom. Take care of yourself :)

jodi said...

look at you, you blossoming beauty. are you going to find out the sex of the baby? We didn't with Che and it was truly the greatest of surprises. x

accidentally, kle said...

Adorable, and I can't agree more. I didn't have an easy first few months at all, but even despite that it was amazing seeing the changes and life literally forming.

Just wait until you start feeling movement - now THAT's something!

Keep well x

Aura, I love how open you are! I am 19 weeks pregnant, and I wish I could show all of my belly pics on my blog and FB for the whole world to see, but my sister hasn't taken my pregnancy very well (she wishes she was pregnant instead of me)and so my parents are having a hard time showing their excitement at their first grandchild. Just as I was done looking at your post, she called me at work and made me cry. I'm sorry to add such a sad comment to your post, because it's such a beautiful post, but I thought at least I could tell a stranger about how sad I am that I can't celebrate as much as I want to. Maybe seeing your posts will give me the stregnth!

Valerie said...

Oh my goodness you are adorable! I was hoping you would post a belly shot soon. I loved being pregnant and sporting the baby bump. Pregnancy was such a beautiful time in my life and it AMAZED me to think that I was actually making a brand new person! Loved the "parasite" comment as my husband and I also referred to our sweet babies as parasites. :)

Christine S. said...

You are so adorable. I love your photos and so excited to be watching from afar this journey with you.

jennifer said...

Yay! babies are the best!

Queen of the Rant said...

You are going to make a wonderful mom-I can tell already-

ag. said...

CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS! What a sweet summer video and the perfect way to end it! Beautiful photos as always!

How freaking cute! Aura, are you and Michael intending on finding out the sex of the baby or are you going to let it be a surprise? I think you're having a girl! I'm just calling it right now. And if I'm right, you owe me $10. :-)

cat said...

how wonderful! blessings to you, your husband, and your little one. wishing you all the love and joy a new baby can bring...

Aura!
I've been reading since you had a live journal! Congratulations, much love, and many blessings on your pregnancy! :) Congratulations!

Erin said...

Aura! Oh my goodness, first of all, HUGE congratulations to you and Michael. I am one of those people who's been following your blog forever...we go all the way back to iam.bme and then livejournal days. Don't know if you'll remember me :) It's so strange how life and the internet works as I hadn't read your blog in almost a year and stumbled upon it because "Pacing the Panic Room" linked you and I find out you're pregnant the day after you post it! EEP! This is especially exciting for me because I had my first son 2 months ago and my pregnancy was such a wonderful time for me and I'm so thrilled to be able to be a part of you documenting yours. I'm sending warm thoughts your way and I'm sure you're going to do the pregnancy and motherhood thing with all the grace, beauty and style possible. <3 -Erin

Heather Lameda said...

Aura, It never ceases to amaze me how much you and Michael enjoy life. It's amazing and serves as a reminder to me that life is a gift, not a sentence. Cherish every moment and surround yourself with the things and people that make you happy. You two will be amazing parents and I can't wait to follow your blog :)

Anonymous @ 9:38 AM on September 29 2010, I was saddened to read your post. Congratulations!I hope things between you and your sister improve. I have a sister that's 18 months younger than me, so I can totally understand the rivalry and jealousy that can sometimes ensue. My sister was married and is now pregnant with her second baby. I has happy when I found out she was pregnant the first time, but experienced a little bit of sadness, as my biological clock ticked LOUDER than ever that day :) However, Nicholas is the greatest little guy in the world and my heart explodes everytime I see a short video or photo of him. Your sister's sadness will pass. Baby's do that. Loving Nicky as much as I do has only taught me to happily wait in anticipation for my turn. And it will be amazing :)
Celebrate, little ones are a gift that brings a family closer together than ever imagined.

Hi Aura,

I read your blog and absolutely love it. I was reading this post on Sunday and had the strangest, what I guess you could call deja blog.

While reading about you finding out you were pregnant I thought hmm.. maybe that is why I'm having these pains. I immediately went and took a test and it was positive. I too sat in the bathroom and cried. I walked out and guess what? My boyfriend was sitting there in his underwear fanning a fire he started in our oven.

I thought this was just too bizarre not to share.

Oh, and our baby is half Persian too. =) I may need you to recommend some of those Farsi books one day.

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

Aura - I am so incredibly happy for you that you are having a baby! I've read your blog for a year now and have read many of your posts talking about your longing for a baby. So so so so excited for you and your hubby!!! I'm expecting my first baby in less than ten weeks. It has been the most incredible journey. I pray that you are feeling well, enjoying this time, and just loving your life at this very moment. Your baby will lead such a blessed and awesome life filled with so many great adventures. Congratulations girl!! So excited for you!!
