31 week portrait. (taken last week as I'm almost 32 weeks). Last night I told James I didn't want to start decorating for the baby shower yet b/c it's still two weeks away. Then this morning I woke up and what did I start doing? Decorating for the baby shower. Ha ha. I set up the tables to see where I wanted them, brought out table cloths, sanded down mini wood pallets I'm going to use on the tables, hung up macrame in the window, put out the tea pitchers and filled up bowls with plastic silverware... And so it begins. I'm really excited to have it in our home b/c half of our friends and family have never even been here. And it will just feel so much more personal having everyone in our space, the space we will be bringing this little soul into. Of course it's created alot more work for me, keeping my house clean, etc, but that is probably a really good thing! I've been planting pretty flowers outside and making the backyard nice for everyone to enjoy. It's been a really good motivator to get things done that I wanted to do before she arrives anyway. I feel like the last 7 months I've been nesting. I'm a natural nester anyways, so pretty much as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I've been rearranging my house to prepare. Which I'll have to do all again when she gets big enough to crawl.
I told James to surprise me with different flowers every monday or tuesday so I can use them in my belly portraits on wednesdays. A great excuse to have some pretty flowers in the house for the next 8 weeks. He picked out these gorgeous sunflowers last week. This beautiful birdie top is from Pylo (but I think it's sold out) and the necklace is from Love + Leather. It's been so fun to style these shoots that show my belly in full glory.
