baby turns 25!

No maternity clothes yet - can you believe it?  That BellaBand is magic I tell you!!

Here I am at 25 weeks - the lil one is officially 25 weeks old. I've been preggo for over SIX MONTHS.  I can't believe how fast it has flown by.  Of course, being insanely busy at the hospital has caused a lot of that time to whiz by...however...I think I am spending plenty of time cherishing the feeling of being pregnant.  I quite enjoy it!

 This whole pregnancy thing is so amazing.  My belly grows bigger EVERY FREAKING DAY.  Sometimes, I swear I can feel it stretching and it's just whispers a lil soreness on my skin...but it isn't unpleasant or anything.  It's sooo round now...people continue to tell me how huge I'm getting :-)  It just makes me smile.  The OB/Gyn residents at the hospital swear I look amazing for 25 weeks...little things like that make feel so good!  Also, as  huge as I feel my belly is - I haven't really gained much weight at all, and still don't wear maternity clothes to work (if you can believe that!).  At my appointment last week I had barely gained 10 lbs - seriously - I felt like I had gained 20...but nope.  My doc told me I am doing really well with that. 

On other news...isn't our Christmas tree so adorable?  We had decided to forgo purchasing a real (or even a fake!) Christmas tree this year - and instead decided to save our pennies for baby gear (as that stuff is pricey!).   However, Tommy surprised me on my birthday with a sweet little 4 footer that he picked up at HomeDepot for a bargain $15!!

Best.  Surprise.  Ever.

I have a little collection of ornaments, antique blown glass, vintage bulbs, some sweet treasures from places I've been - I LOVE ORNAMENTS!  And I had just enough to cover our teeny tree.  Perfecto!

I don't think I look pregnant from the front, I look like I usually do...until I turn sideways :-)


  1. I can't believe you're 6 months along either, not only are you TINY but it seems like you just told us you were expecting! Also, this is super-stalkerish of me but since I used to live in Ithaca, I totally recognize the parking lot in the window of the first picture, haha!

  2. You look fabulous!

    Oh, and Tommy - big time bonus points for you for the surprise Christmas tree!

    Happy happy holidays to you both (and le bebe)! xo.

  3. You and the tree both look ADORABLE!

  4. I'm amazed at and still a huge smile on your face!

  5. You look A-MAZING for 25 weeks. And 10lbs?? You're one lucky lady, lady! The Christmas tree is so lovely. Go Tommy with the awesome surprise xx

  6. You do look amazing - healthy and radiant.

    These are a few of my favorite shots of you so far.

    P.S. Three cheers for the BellaBand! I had four (given to me by friends) - in black, brown, pink, and white.
