bump : week 23














The sub-zero weather has kept us indoors, but it hasn't kept us from having the most amount of fun possible.  I've been enjoying hot cups of tea served with teaspoons of sugar and condensed milk, curling up with my favorite blanket and enjoying the tap-tap, nudge-nudge of the littlest De La Rosa.  Though I find myself playing catch up yet again (I'm 24 weeks!) I'm not complaining in the least bit.  I've had this little family of mine all to myself for a full four days with no work, no emails, no agenda and no pressure.  Ahhhhh... happy winter celebration, little baby.

PS- did you know Erick finally launched his website?  It's up, it's responsive, and it's gorgeous.

I'm a proud muma bear.

  2. Can I just say?.. This "bump" series is the best. Baby is already a part of the family and I adore seeing that in these photos. And you and Soph... oh man, you two are precious.

    2. He is quite the photographer, and his true talent lies in dealing with someone like me in front of the lens... (I can get a bit snippy when I'm overtired!) I admit, it's been really strange sitting at a computer color-correcting photos of myself, let alone SEEING myself so much on this blog. I'm not used to it at all! ;)

  13. Those photos are seriously spectacular. I'm pretty jealous that I don't have someone to capture some photos of my baby belly like that! Such a beautiful baby belly it is too. I'm going to be searching the cupboard for some condensed milk straight after this, so delicious in tea and I haven't had it for such a long time!

  14. I got little tears in my eyes looking at these! So damn beautiful! You're family is just beyond precious Kate x

  20. I love love love this series. Your home has so much beautiful light! (metaphorically and literally) :)
    Great colors also! My favorite week so far. I hope you're feeling as great as you look!

  21. Beautiful photos, gorgeous bump, and Sophia looks so happy! I love how little ones try to understand (or do understand!) - my two year old niece, whenever I see her, always pokes my belly and says, "Baby?" then tries to lift my shirt up to find him.

    Time is flying! But it's terrible that winter is finally here. Motivation: lacking.

  34. Kate! Woman, you are gorgeous!! These photos are achingly beautiful. I don't know if it's just me having an emotional day, or if I'm just a big softie, but tears welled in my eyes when I saw the photo of Sofia kissing your tummy. So much joy in all of these photos. I hope your days are good! x
