Here we are, this week I'm 6 months pregnant. Do you see that major roundness I've got going on?
I'm looking and feeling rather huge lately, and I'm just getting used to the belly's growth spurt over the past month - but loving every tiresome and interesting minute of it.The kids run over to me when I tell them the baby is kicking in there, and I ask them who wants to feel the belly and come say hello to their baby brother? "Meeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!"
First time wearing that vintage dress, and the very first time trying it on in all year long. Got it last January from Etsy, of course - a sweet shop named Wunderbar vintage. Had I known how much I would love the dress, I would've at least put on some lipstick for the photo.
Adoring the looks on my kiddos faces - they did so great staying there for the photos - they're such troopers because they initially started out smiling - but this was an impromptu picture-taking moment, which turned into a super long 5 minutes...and do you know what 5 minutes is like with 2 kids and 2 dogs? More like 20 minutes. So this photo was after a dozen or so snapshots were already taken - all the while I'm saying under my breath and behind my smile to my pups "Aleethea, Souvlaki, ssstaaaaaaayyyyyy, good girrrrrrls, ssstayyyyyyyyy."
Joey could not wait til the picture-taking was over so he could go back to playing with his cardboard craft. Lily was taking it all so seriously, she was also saying "sstaaaaaaaaaayy" to the dogs. Do you see how Aleethea's ears are all pushed back? She is so sweet, she was patiently listening to and obeying Lily. Souvlaki isn't quite as patient yet - she was just waiting to pounce up and run once we were all done. Afterwards Lily was just so happy because the dogs listened to her. Ugh, so cute!
Missing in the photo is the Hubbs Joe - because he was taking the picture. And if he would've moved even just a bit, and attempted to turn on the auto-timer thingy on the camera in order to jump into the photo...well, forget about it...those 4 adorable sweeties next to me would've each started walking away in their own directions. So I've learned ya take what ya can get around here some mornings.
I think this one is going to get framed in black and white, and hung up in the new house once we move. That is, after I photoshop the Hubbs Joe into the picture too. :)
Not sure when I'll check-in here again since we're surrounded by boxes and moving this month. Sad times because I will miss the dear friends I made here in this small and quiet country town. But at the same time we are ecstatic to be moving back to our hometown of NYC.
Hope you and yours enjoy a wonderful October!
