Since I don’t feel right posting photos my husband took of me on my photography blog ( b/c it’s not my photography), I thought I’d post these two photos here.
The first one is me slathering my buddah belly with pregnancy-safe sunblock ( from what I read, zinc oxide ones are pretty safe).
It’s amazing how much clothing accentuates a pregnant belly, as evidenced by my 2nd picture. My next post pre-planned in my head: non-maternity purchases to wear throughout maternity + plus a few actual maternity things (gasp!).
Nursery preparations are in full swing, mostly in my head and on the computer.
We’ll be going with a lavender/violet theme with a few bright accents ( mostly yellow) and lots of white! I want a bright happy nursery room.
Tomorrow hubby will be going to Lowes to pick up a few supplies for the room. As of right now, I will be making a few wall decorations myself, hubby will be refinishing and painting a dresser and a nightstand we bought, my sister in Russia will be sewing our crib bedding and my friend India agreed to paint a small mural on the wall ( she’s super talented!). And while I am not a sentimental kind ( i throw out cards right after reading them, and don’t tend to like 2nd hand or handmade things), it all sort of makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside.
We have also started receiving our first baby presents, which is super fun! But a completely different post.
