bump : week 26











We traveled to the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art this past week for their children and families day to take some quick photos and watch Sofia explore the artistic activities they had provided for little ones.  We had the best time, and I have become increasingly aware of just how important these moments of family time are to all of us.  I can say I have officially reached the stage where my normal jeans are starting to feel too tight and coming home from work quickly means "no-pants".  Can you believe that in just 12 short weeks I could be giving birth?  I know I can't!

I feel ready.

  8. all the pictures are beautiful - but I love the first one. Seems like you're looking to spring and to your spring baby.. and I'm not pregnant but quite a big fan of getting home and getting out of pants! PJ bottoms, yoga pants, other such stylish things (!) . xx
