31 weeks.




















Despite the intense nausea I experienced the first 3 months, I really have enjoyed being pregnant. I never really favored any specific part of my body before until now: my belly! After seeing what it can do and the perfect round bump of love that is our son, I truly appreciate this gift I've been blessed with. As husband and I were walking along the beach in Santa Barbara many smiles were exchanged at my protruding belly. My favorite was a random man on a bicycle calling out "Congrats you two! What a beautiful day!" as he sped on by. At first I was taken aback by this looney tune, but then quickly realized how blessed we really are. I really love life, and appreciate it ten fold more as I've gone through my pregnancy.

  2. Gah! Where did you get that dress!?!? so cute. You look great!

    It is insane how much pregnancy makes you look at life differently. It's all about to change and its all for the better:)
