Wearing white while severely pregnant is a pretty gutsy move for me. I think after I'd been out only about 15 minutes, my husband was already showing me where I'd gotten dirt on myself from unknowingly bumping into something. This belly is made for bumping into things and being a receptacle for food crumbs. I'm not the most coordinated person so pregnancy takes things to an even more comical level. Soon enough though, I'll be holding a little man in my arms. I'm hoping by then I can regain some coordination. Eeeek!
This is a look back at when my belly was a more manageable size. Look how cute and round that stomach was! Oh, memories. In other news, seven months was the month I gave up pants. I mean, I'm still (somewhat) appropriately dressed, but I've transitioned to a wardrobe consisting of mostly leggings and tunics. Or, I should say what used to be called a dress that now barely qualifies as a tunic, like in the image above. I'm pretty sure this dress was about to burst at the seams. My husband caught this close-up image. I'm quickly realizing I should probably try a different pose besides looking down and to the side. I like it, but I look sad. Does anyone want to help me correct my lazy eye? If so, I might start actually looking at the camera one of these days. See, there I go again.
Doesn't this photo look festive and nice and holiday-ish? Well, in truth I think this was actually back in November. It's fitting for this time of year though, am I right? I think six months in my very favorite month of pregnancy. The belly is usually round enough at this point that it closer resembles an actual baby instead of a beer gut. However, it's not so round that it's up to your chest causing you to be out of breath by just walking down the hallway. Six months is just right. I have a bit of a strange look on my face in the above photo, but I couldn't resist posting it. This kid was too cute. We were trying to take photos of the baby bean, and Alder just kept sneaking in the photos with a mischievous smile on his face. I just love that kid.
