Shameless Plug

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 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.

And for a small fee, I'll draw a face on your child too!

Love the belly, hot stuff.

Maleen, you are so lucky that you don't get stretch marks! Maybe it's because you don't get that big. Seriously, you look pretty small compared to some people I've seen. You look so cute!

Kayla said...

I can't believe how soon you're due. You don't look big at all! I've seen alot of pregnant people and you are so by far not the biggest. By the way, the headbands look great. I wish I were so crafty!

Your belly is too cute! Those are some cute headbands-I wish I were in town to maybe go buy some!

I hate to burst your bubble, but I think that the honor of the biggest belly in the family belongs to ME - especially since I don't have to have a baby in there to artificially augment it! All joking aside, it is wonderful to have a daughter who can look so beautiful when she's so pregnant.

Thanks for the heads up! Those headbands are darling, and, by the way, please take a few minutes each day to be thankful for your stretch mark-lessness. It is a special and unique gift!

You really are a too cute pregnant lady. And those headbands are way cute too. Since I'm no where close to you, I might just have to make some of my own. :)

Emilie said...

Seriously Maleen, you don't look that big. it is just because you are so little. And not stretch marks? So not fair!

Stacy said...

What! No Stretch marks and you are that little?? The world is not fair...not fair at all...
