While I do feel some guilt about not giving this pregnancy the same attention I gave the first one (a lot of that has to do with chasing around a toddler), I did vow to do a few things:
- Take weekly belly photos (and maintain a “belly book”) – so far I haven’t done great with this. I’ve tried though. I have a book (but not the official “belly book”) that I’ve been adding photos to but I haven’t been on top of taking weekly photos.
- Get professional maternity pictures – this pregnancy is also special and the fact that I haven’t been on top of the weekly belly pics just made me want to get pro pics all the more.
So I bring to you some of the pro pics courtesy of our amazingly talented friend, Maria Vicencio. We’ve had a really mild winter so far so I didn’t think much of doing an outdoor shoot the weekend after Thanksgiving. It only figures that this particular Sunday was like 32 degrees.
The other crazy thing to me is that I feel like I look full term in these pictures (but I still had another 8 weeks to go… yowza).
