5 GRAPHIC TEES YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE

Over the past few weeks of the quarantine, one of my go-to wardrobe staples have been oversized graphic tees. After all, I’ve officially graduated from the sweatpants I wore on repeat throughout the first few weeks of the shut-down. Sharing five graphic tees with you today that I’ve been living in and how I’m styling them. Topping off this post with some unpublished photos of Naiya from the week we found out we were prego with Sadie. She’s aged about 10 years in the quarantine so far so I’m especially loving looking back at these photos from before she was basically a teenager!

WHAT TO WEAR FOR A MATERNITY SHOOT

I planned on sharing our maternity photos before Sadie was born but since the past weeks have been such a blur, excited to finally share now! Better late than never! Naiya, Phil and myself had so much fun snapping these a few weeks back while we dreamed about what our family of four would be like. Throughout the shoot, I remember feeling like I was about to pop and wondered how much longer Sadie could possibly stay in my belly.  She was clearly running out of room in there and I couldn’t wait for her to come out! Looking back at these photos now, though, dare I say I actually already miss the bump?!  I had such a tough pregnancy where I was very sick and threw up every day and yet I still look back at this time missing it! Am I crazy?

NAIYA’S BIRTH STORY

I can’t believe Naiya is turning three weeks old tonight. I feel like we’ve known her forever–except in the middle of the night when she cries uncontrollably for hours, can’t stop cluster feeding and fights going to sleep–but that’s another story. Good thing she’s so cute! I’m excited to share her birth story with you today. Get ready for a very long post and probably more photos than I’ve ever posted at one time but I can’t help myself!

WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

August 24th was our daughter’s official due date but she’s still apparently very comfortable and is cooking away! The past two nights, I’ve had really intense contractions that were so bad, I was convinced they were the real deal and we needed to head to the hospital. That said, since they were not happening in repetitive intervals and they were kind of all over the place, we knew the hospital wouldn’t admit us yet. 

BABY BUMP BELLY ART

 

I didn’t have much of a bump until I was about 8-months preggo. For a long time, it looked like I had eaten too many burritos and I felt completely uncomfortable. And then, a few weeks ago, I woke up one morning and noticed my bump had seemingly popped out overnight. It was such a weird feeling but the best part about it was that I also noticed around this time that I feel our baby moving so much more.
