Fall Maternity Style

 Sweater: Target, currently on SALE! Buy 1, get 1 50% | Jeans: H&M | Clogs: Old Navy (sold out in cognac but black still available)

If you're pregnant and you hate full panel jeans, get these. They are so comfy, almost feeling like jammies. I didn't rip them off the second I got home from work which is big time.

Thrifted dress | Leggings: Nordstrom | Beanie: Target (only $5 and has 9 colors) | Boots: Old Navy


Liam's been throwing out some real gems lately and it's been a while since I've put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard, whatev) my favs. This kid is hilarious.

"Hey mama, you get to pick the book because you picked me up from daycare and that's so awesome."

While I'm watching the news Liam asks,
"Who's Donald Trump?"
"He's a man running for president of our country."
"Aw man!"
My sentiments exactly.

To the tune of Who Let the Dogs Out..."Who let the E out? E, e, e, e, e." I applaud his daycare for coming up with all sorts of creative jingles for learning letter sounds. 😂

"Mommy, what's your favorite animal? Mine is a big bad wolf! He's a bad bad amimal.  Be careful or he'll bwowwwww your house down!" Care to gander what book we've been reading lately?

Little Victories and Big Bellies

Sneakers: TARGET

I'm currently sitting on the couch switching between The Voice and Friends waiting for the Giants game to start. Liam's just gone to bed and he's come out with requests twice now. The first to go potty even though he just went which I firmly reminded him of and the second was for a cup of water. And though we're still working on him not leaving his room after he's been sent to bed, I consider tonight a victory.

Liam's the pickiest eater (like won't eat Chic-fil-a picky) and tonight he ate his dinner without throwing a fight. Or his food. Chicken, cranberries, and mashers. Why it requires any sort of convincing to eat mashed potatoes I'll never know. And so...dessert all around!

And...I just got my third visit, again requesting a bathroom visit. This time I heard a sweet whisper,

Mama, why did your belly get so big??

Seriously impressed with what my body is doing right now. I explained how baby is growing and soon we'll be able to feel little kicks.

But mama, we don't kick.

Long pause.

Alright kid, back to bed!

Life Hack

T-shirt: OLD NAVY
Boots: CHARLES DAVID, similar

Being pregnant has taught me one thing: elastic waist bands can solve a multitude of issues. You always hear about the hair tie trick to put off wearing those dreaded maternity pants. But they don't tell you how much it presses into your belly and by the ninth hour the hair tie has been removed and you're just sitting there with your pants undone. 😳
