Sometimes, when you're pregnant, it's hard to motivate yourself. It's hard to get out of bed, so sometimes you just stay there. Your skin breaks out all the time, so you feel like makeup is pointless. And you only have about two shirts that fit, so you'd just rather stay in your pajamas.

Well, all these things are great, until you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and you look like a zombie. That reality check happened on Monday, and after that I decided that every day I will make an effort. Spend a little time on myself. It makes me feel better and I'm sure my husband appreciates it, too.

So, today I'm walking with the living, and it feels good.

I even tried something new with my bangs! I watched this tutorial and it was really helpful.

Shirt: Borrowed from Anna. Jeans: PacSun. Watch: Anne Klein. Mocs: Thrifted.

Mother's Day

We had a fantastic weekend filled with much mother-celebrating. 

We enjoyed a mother-daughter banquet, an intense game of baseball and way, way too much food between our families.

My husband was sweet enough to get me a gift certificate for a prenatal massage and a very pretty card, he really is the sweetest guy, and my in-laws got me a hanging basket of beautiful begonias.

I don't exactly feel like a mother yet, but I know it'll come with time and I'm so thankful for a family who wants me to feel special even before baby girl arrives.

Dear Baby

We found out last week that you are a girl and we're over the moon with excitement.

Anna helped set up a special surprise to reveal your gender and she did such a great job. You'll get plenty of camera time with her throughout your life.
It looks like you've been busy in there. Nine ounces and seven inches of perfect. Thanks for all the little kicks, we think they're pretty cool, and keep trying for your thumb-you alllmost had it.
