Butterfly Whispers


On butterfly wings come quiet whispers

of new life


and growth

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…

“(26 weeks)

Psalm 127:3
“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…

    • It really is such an exciting time for us, and I’m completely obsessed with her tummy… I even painted it like a pumpkin with frosting for Halloween because I’m such a freak haha!
      I love what she wrote about butterflies too and think the legend about whispering your wishes to them is so meaningful. 🙂

  5. How beautiful Jewels! What a wonderful sign of change for you to something exciting and more beautiful, from being alone in the solitary of the chrysalis in a dark cocoon meta-morphing to the beautiful colourful butterfly alive, free and exploring in the brilliant light of day. God’s promise to you of new beginnings! The first-fruits seen in your daughters womb. Praise God who “keeps the best till last”!
