7 months of BARE belly love =)

While baby-daddy was off gallivanting in Canada for a friend’s bachelor party, Houston and I hit the 7 month mark and I was forced to take grainy self-portraits with my iPhone in the bathroom mirror of our chub-makin’ progress.

{My displeasure with his trip is truly just a joke – I was the one who encouraged him to go and have his testosterone filled fun before the baby came and he would forever be Mr. Mom.}

{…and YES, I do deserve the pregnant wife of the year award, thank you.}

So anyway, like I was saying… I tried my best with these. You would think since I could see myself while taking the picture, I would be able to avoid the “deer caught in headlights” look, but alas, that look is most truly the real me.


The pictures were turning out fairly crappy and I was fed up with trying to hold my shirt perfectly to show just the right curve of this 28 week burgeoning belly… so I did it. I lifted my shirt on up and am now giving my bare belly it’s debut in the blog world.
{my bare belly is on the friggin’ WORLD WIDE WEB, ya’ll!! Yeesh!}

Ain’t it a beaut’?
{Don’t answer that. I’m glad I can’t see your shocked, horrified faces.}

7 months is proving to be quite the mile marker. Our entry into the third {and final!} trimester is official, we drank our delicious “glu-cola” drink at the doctor today and passed the glucose challenge, we’re looking forward to seeing our sweet baby boy’s face at a 3-D ultrasound on Thursday, AND we’re attending the first of a few baby showers in Houston’s honor, back in my hometown this weekend.

{…a baby shower thrown by my mom and mom-in-law in which they have completely OUT-DONE themselves. I am SO excited!}

My anticipation for this little one’s arrival has been tripling with each passing day recently and it truly is becoming part of my reality that he will be here very soon. This is a strange but true statement – my baby fever IS BACK!
It doesn’t help that I have sweet sorority sisters, Danielle and Ashley, who have  each given birth recently and who ALSO blog the most darling pictures of their wee ones. {Do not visit their blogs if you can’t risk catching your own bout of “the fever” – you most certainly will with just one visit!} I cannot wait to be in their adorable mommy shoes♥
