Family Pictures – For the first time since our wedding day we took professional family pictures last night! It’s always something I think “hey we should do that!” and never something that makes my short list of things to do. But Mike’s new practice in Chicago asked that he get professional family pictures taken before we move and before baby comes, for their website. So we finally did it! I spent Wednesday going through the clothes that remained unpacked for the three of us and realizing some shopping would be required. So off to the mall on a rainy day I went – 2.5 year old in tow.
I wandered aimlessly through Motherhood Maternity, Younkers and Banana Republic before finding a cute non-maternity dress in Francesca’s Closet that fit over the belly. Then I actually found Leah’s cute dress on clearance at Target and Mike was able to wear pink shorts and a white button down that he had. I was so proud of myself as this is generally not my forte! Last night we had a great time taking pictures outside on a beautiful night and I’m excited to see if we got any good ones in a couple weeks!
Birth Stories – It was so fun receiving the birth stories that I posted over the past two weeks. It’s been a while since I’ve had any to post and reading those just made me remember by I love hearing about each baby’s entry into the world – they’re all so unique! So if you have wondered if I’m still looking for stories to share I am! And if you’ve had a baby and would be willing to share your story I’d be thrilled to learn about that amazing (or terrifying) moment in your life that left you forever changed, so send it my way!
