Baby Belly

Since those Jenga photos a couple days ago mysteriously hid my giant belly, here’s a shot that I took that same night to send to my mom. (I wasn’t going to post it because I have a weird expression and the lighting is all yellow, but oh well, here you are!) I snapped it in our living-room mirror while Alex was cooking dinner.

Recently the baby has been kicking SO much, and it is ridiculously cute. He’s so kicky that if I lean back while watching TV, my tummy will actually ripple, like waves in the ocean. It’s really sci-fi and awesome to watch him bumping around, and, needless to say Alex and I find it endlessly endearing.

Thank you so much for being so sweet, as always; it’s such a treat to share everything with you. xo

  1. Oh my goodness. You are so gorgeous. Please make more babies.

  2. Thank you for another essential article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a complete way of writing? I have a presentation incoming week, and I am on the lookout for such information.

  3. I am thoroughly convinced in this said post. I am currently searching for ways in which I could enhance my knowledge in this said topic you have posted here. It does help me a lot knowing that you have shared this information here freely. I love the way the people here interact and shared their opinions too. I would love to track your future posts pertaining to the said topic we are able to read.

  4. You’re beautiful! Did you know a pregnant woman produces extra collagen (which is why so many pregnant women look so good)? Isn’t that the coollest?!

    Sorry-I was signed in under my husband’s account!

  10. I really miss that! We could make an evening of watching my belly do amazing tricks! It was so awe inspiring to know that the tiny human we made was alive and kicking inside me, I still will never get over that.
    I’m so happy for you, that you get to experience the joy
    of being pregnant! It’s wonderful and enjoy it. I’m sure you’ve received tons of unsolicited advice, as I did, but really enjoy this time, before you know it you’ll be spooning mashed sweet potatoes into his little wide-open mouth and wonder, “Gee, how did that happen?” Every stage is pretty great though!

    XO
