Me & Little Dude

When I was pregnant with Gracie I felt disgusting. I felt massive. I was just...blah. I worked really hard to never be in anyones pictures. Though they were offered to me, I turned down maternity pictures. I severely regret that choice. I don't have any pictures that weren't taken with my phone.

I don't have any nice pictures rejoicing over Gracie and the fact that I got to carry that sweet little girl for 9 months, 3 weeks and 1 day. It honestly is a really really big regret I have. When I found out I was pregnant with little dude, I vowed to not make the same mistake again. 

When it came time to take family pictures, I thought: "Ya know what? Let's do maternity pictures too!" 

I knew INSTANTLY the dress I would wear. I had been pining over it since it came into the store. 



It isn't a shocker that the dress is from PinkBlush Maternity. If you follow me at all on instagram or twitter or even just by reading this blog from time to time, you know how much I love their merchandise. 





The dress is SUPER comfortable, and I just love the color. It was definitely the right choice for me and it inspired the color scheme for our family pictures (a post to come on those & the not-so-picturesque experience later!) The dress made me feel so comfortable with my bump and really pretty. Daniel loved it on me too and took me to dinner after pictures because he said I was dressed up so fancy and he wanted to take me out. :) 



Another note? I couldn't decide on the size to get and the customer service was kind of amazing. They are all personable and hilarious. I made a unaboob joke and the lady helping me laughed. I don't know about you, but THAT is the kind of person I want helping me decide what size to fit into. Heck, that is the kind of person I want to take to Starbucks or watch the Oscars red carpet with. 



I am so glad I have these memories for my son, for Gracie, my husband and really, for me. 

Truly, beautiful.
