OUR DAYS CONSIST OF

IMG_8366_1

Baby snuggles. Lots of little cat naps. Staring at Samuel. Taking a bajillion pictures of him. Proclaiming “he is so perfect” and “we made that!” Breastfeeding (so incredible). Eating. Lots of eating. Drinking gallons of water. Crying at unexpected moments (those hormones are no joke). Kissing those scrumptious baby cheeks. Posting too many pictures to Instagram. Not watching TV because Sam is the best entertainment there is. Loving my husband more than ever before (who knew that was even possible?!) Wanting Sam to never grow up. Feeling so blessed that I get to be his mama.

ONE OF THE LAST BUMP OUTFITS – FESTIVAL STYLE

IMG_8198

The past 5 days have been the best, the happiest, most challenging, sleep-deprived, incredible days of my life. This little man of mine is perfect in every way, and I have so much to say about him and lots to share, but first, I’m sticking to the most important job of mine of snuggling my babe. Bare with me. Today, I thought I’d share one of my very last maternity outfit posts. Since little Sam Sam decided to come 9 days early, I had a few of these in my arsenal ready to go, not knowing we would be seeing him sooner than expected! And oh, how happy I am that he came right when he did!

I have been loving the whole “festival style” vibe that’s everywhere lately. Ankle boots, boho frocks, wide rimmed hats and lots of kimonos. It’s basically all I’ve been wearing lately. And oh, that bump. I will miss it- kind of. ;) Stay tuned for a post this friday all about dressing the bump!

MATERNITY PHOTOS PART TWO

And now for part two from our little at-home maternity shoot! Since finding out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to do something like this. Something intimate, something sweet, something to really remember this belly by forever and ever. Because as much as I was excited to meet our little guy, I knew I’d miss the belly, if even just a little bit. And now that he is really here, and decided to make his grand entrance a tiny bit ahead of the due date (and thank you for that, Sam, because I was sooooo done being pregnant!) I’ll take cuddling him over that big belly any day. And every day. As a matter of fact, that’s pretty much the norm now. Baby snuggles, all day every day. Don’t ever grow up, Sam Sam!
