On butterfly wings come quiet whispers
of new life

I’m still being completely fascinated over here by my daughter’s ever-growing pregnant tummy, and I’m so in awe of the transformation that is going on within her – a little person is being formed in there, it’s so amazing! ❤
Here is another photo I snapped of her tummy the other day…
Butterflies have become sort of the theme for my daughter’s pregnancy.
She posted the above photo on her Facebook, and with her permission I’d like to share what she wrote about it…
“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord. The fruit of the womb is a reward.”
My little butterfly ❤
This is the second photo in a butterfly series I am doing. Last year, God answered one of my prayers by using a butterfly as a symbol, and since then, butterflies have remained a constant in my life to remind me of God’s promises and blessings for my life – especially during my pregnancy.
There are lots of legends about butterflies. One of my favorites is that by whispering a prayer or wish to one, they will carry it to Heaven. I have many prayers and wishes for my little girl, and alongside that legend and my own spiritual experiences with butterflies, I wanted that to be the theme for my maternity photos.
I have been feeling little movements from Noelle since 15 weeks. Now, at 26 weeks, she is moving and kicking all the time! And I can SEE it! It is so exciting, and I can’t wait to meet my little girl ❤ “
I can’t wait to meet her either!
Because butterflies symbolize new life, transformation and growth, I can’t think of anything more fitting to liken to pregnancy than butterflies. 🙂
May you experience new life, transformation and growth today too…
