Counting down the days // Maternity Photos

I don’t think we can believe that the day is actually drawing so so close when we will get to meet our little girl. Technically she’s due THIS weekend, but we’ll have to see how long she makes us wait. It makes it a little difficult to count down the days, when we don’t actually know how many it will be.
