As much as pregnancy can feel difficult or frustrating or uncomfortable, the truth is I really love being pregnant. First, there’s the blessing of amazing hair. I mean, I can wear my hair in a loose pony tail at night and in the morning shake it out and viola!, good to go. And then there are fun, sunshine-y dresses like this one from Mint Julep that transition perfectly into maternity wear. Lastly there’s the pure joy of knowing the bump my hands are wrapped around is our baby. This second pregnancy is already different from my first, mainly that Maxwell is toddling around my feet and so he keeps me very busy. But really, it’s going by so quickly. I am anticipating the heart explosion that comes with holding your baby for the very first time and I can’t even put it into words. Being a mama is my greatest accomplishment. As a little girl, I had just a couple baby dolls that I played with. For years I was invested in just a couple dolls; they were my babies. And now as a mama I am so grateful to be able to invest in real, squishy, milk-breathed babies that are made up of equal parts of Zack and me.
Hello, 27 weeks baby bump, I sure do love what you represent.

PS. On Friday I’ll be giving away a $75 gift certificate to the Mint Julep shop. And, if you join their newsletter you’ll receive a $10 coupon right now!
You look beautiful in yellow! Sweet baby bump.
It’s such a fun color, isn’t it? My wardrobe doesn’t have a lot of it but I think that could change :)
Maggie, you are seriously one of the cutest pregnant ladies I know. It just suits you! It’s such an encouragement to read from mommas that are about a step ahead of me (my first little love is just 8 months old) and see what a great attitude you have an example you are. PS that hair! Oh my word, you definitely look like you fit in CA with those locks! :)
Thank you Lydia! PS. I love your name.
Love that dress on you–so bright and cheerful. Perfect for summer. Love following your updates as I am about 6 weeks or so behind you with 2nd little bundle. It’s so different this time!
