Tyler mentioned that my last post may have seemed like I was fishing for compliments. Hardly. First of all, I am very secure in my appearance (even when I disapprove of my girth) and second, I usually don't fish. If I have a question about how I look, I usually just ask. So, I thought that I would stop complaining for a moment and examine the wonder of my belly.
*From some angles, I don't even look pregnant
*I don't get stretch marks
*My girls love to give kisses and hugs to my belly
*There is a baby in there!!
Here are a couple of lovely shots of the belly.
I definitely look pregnant in both, but more so in the one where I practically blot June from the entire picture (by the way, it is amazing that I got a picture by myself, because once the camera comes out, the girls flock to it like flies to honey.
But I know what you are really interested in...it is that amazing head band I am wearing. I know you want one just like it (perhaps in a different color?) and I know just where you can get one. See, Emilie and I made them (aren't we crafty) and we will be selling them at Charesse's Boutique this Saturday.
The address is 1590 W. 525 S. right off of Geneva. There will be plenty there to check out including $3 pedicures which I will have to take advantage of while I am there. How is that for a shameless plug. I have never tried making something and selling it before so it might be a bust, but it was fun nonetheless and in the end, I know I will have some dang cute head bands (that don't fall off or hurt for that matter). (Shameless plug, shameless plug.)
But back to belly business. There is great obsession with bellies in our house at the moment. The girls were feeling left out so Tyler gave each of them a little friend for their tummy. Please excuse the nakedness of Robyn, but this picture is worth viewing (you have to look closely to see the faces).
And here is one more of Ivory because I love this kissy face she is making.
So the moral of the story is...bellies are beautiful. I am happy to have the biggest one in the family at the moment. I shouldn't complain because a big belly brought each of my beautiful girls and I expect this one will be no different.
