It's hard to believe that we're already more than halfway through the pregnancy! I'm twenty-one weeks along and two weeks ago we found out that our little angel is going to be a boy! (Please contain the disappointment, ladies! Hehe.) I can't imagine being anymore excited now that we know for sure and I can start really shopping for clothes. Of course that would be what's on my mind. Not to mention I am so happy that I get to announce something for myself. When we found out I was pregnant I guess we told at least one person we shouldn't have too early on and they decided to spread the word like it was any of their business, so I don't get to really announce that I was pregnant other than the initial shock to my best friends and my mom. We do have a name picked out (I hope, because I love it!) but it's way too early to share, I think. My boyfriend, Jonathan, is a baby name genie.
We were originally going to make these photos a lot more professional looking by having a photographer do them, the photographer being my best friend's mom, but she was very busy and I was wanting so badly to announce it as soon as possible! Then we decided someone could just take the photos with my nice camera and I was going to also have some polaroids taken by my friend for the baby book. But then my boyfriend and my best friend convinced me to just have polaroids taken and scanned.
Blue and Gray Maxi Dress: Wet Seal, it's not maternity; Denim Jacket: American Eagle; Silver bracelets: Juicy Couture; Silver Studs: Forever21; My cross: gifted from my mom, I basically never take it off unless it absolutely doesn't match; Fake Diamond Ring: Unknown, it's old.
My outfit was obviously baby gender inspired. I was going to make my boyfriend matched me, but I didn't want to force him so I let him pick out his own clothes. I think the colors ended up looking really nice together, though. I stuck to something kind of form fitting to show off my bump because that's what I like. I stuck to silver jewelry because my boyfriend likes silver better than gold and I have a lot more of it, too. But basically I had to wear something blue.
This is also the reasoning behind the recent layout update! The light blue was a subtle hint towards "it's a boy," but before we actually announced it. I had to celebrate some way and that way was changing the theme, painting my nails, and baking a gender reveal cake for my sister even though she didn't really care and I can't really cook.
I hope you guys are as excited as I am! If you have any negative opinions you might as well keep them to yourself, because nothing could contain my joy.
