Seriously, time needs to slow down. I thought posting a “bump” update every 2 weeks sounded about right in the beginning. But 2 weeks feels like 2 days! I feel like my post at 24 weeks was just yesterday, and here I am already, writing agian at 26. I hope you are not sick of them! Baby is growing like a weed!
So, you hear about women saying that you wake up one day and just “pop”. Well, it’s kind of true. My “pop” happened this wednesday. I woke up, walked past the mirror, and then had to walk back again to stare at my belly. WHOW! Was I just noticing this now or did it really grow overnight? I think it just might have! I’ve realized as each day goes by and my waistband continues to expand, dressing has become a whole new challenge. I’m one to lean towards oversized slouchy sweaters and loose fit tanks and tees. But it’s not really working for me anymore. All of a sudden, I just feel frumpy. I now have a whole new strategy….to HIGHLIGHT instead of HIDE this belly of mine. I have found myself wearing more fitted tops and belted dresses that show it off a little more. And go figure, I went to baby GAP the other day and the woman working there asked me “if I had something cooking!?” AHHH, my first comment from a stranger! She may have been tipped off that I was in a baby store….in the infant section…with a rather protruding belly….but still! I’ll take it. “Yes. I am cooking up a baby girl. Due in August.”
I am kind of in love with my new shoes. They are gigantic, I know. My sister took one look at them and was like “What ARE those!? They are ridiculous!” Ridiculously amazing, you mean? ;) I love almost everything Jeffrey Campbell touches. I met him last year at a trade show in Vegas, and he was the coolest, most down to earth guy. Made me like his product even more. These Ford Lace-Up’s I bought from Need Supply. Which, if you have never visited their online store, go now! One of my all time fav’s. I have been eyeing these ILLESTEVA frames for a while now. Perfect summer sunnies, don’t you think?
And here is my usually baby bump update pic…big and bare!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
We spent most of it painting the nursery and shopping for a changing table. Or in my case, a vintage dresser that I will be converting into my changing table. fun fun fun fun! The process has begun.
