I was recently introduced to PicMonkey and all I gotta say is I mean, I heard about it when Picnic shut down, but I had also just gotten PhotoShop so I didn't pay any attention to it. As it turns out, PhotoShop can be a wee overwhelming for us wannabes, and PicMonkey is waaaay slick and super easy. I'm all about simplifying these days as i'm lucky to even find a few minutes to play around on it.

It's like a whole new world of possibilities has opened up right before my very eyes! (Thank you, Tiffany!) I'm playing around with it today and having all kinds of fun. I made this collage, but before you see it you should know that: 1. I went my whole pregnancy without sharing these photos with anyone! I was a little sensitive about the size of my belly (and the baby!) 2. In hind sight, I should have left my shirt down. 3. This blog is ultimately for my kids and preserving our memories, and I want Otto to have these. 4. I can't wait to rock my pre-baby body again. I hope that it comes back!

Ok, with all that said, no judging please. I'm just a Mama who was capturing love for her baby. xo

Also? I totally just busted myself. We knew we were having a boy. We just kept it a secret from ya'll. Sorry 'bout that. It was fun having a little secret, but also really hard. We've already decided we won't do that again ;)


  1. You look great! And I thought the same thing about keeping my shirt down by the end, but wanted to keep it consistent. Oh well. Next time.

  2. I'm totally with you on being sensitive about the size. I'm sooooo tired of the comments on how big I am!!! Must just be what happens with #3! Also- you are tricky! I totally knew that you knew! Ha:)

  3. You looked and still look fabulous! It's all in the eye of the beholder I know, but always know there will never be anyone more beautiful in your children's eyes then you!

  4. what's amazing is how completely adorable you look right before giving birth. wowza momma you are gorgeous! i have no doubt your belly will be that flat again in no time.

  5. You were totally beautiful! I'm 125lb and only 5'2" on a good day, I gained 40+ lbs with both my babies! But thankfully it all comes back off;)
