8 Months.

6/13/2013


Good morning lovelies. How are your weeks so far? Kirby and I can't thank you enough for all of the sweet responses about our new design. We're pretty smitten and glad you are too! :)

I have some maternity photos to share with you. These are the last you will probably see as I head into the home stretch (a month to go)! I have to say that I feel large and gigantic and awkward and gross, but my sweet co-worker Michaela took these photos in L.A. a couple of weeks ago and I love how they turned out.

Last time around, I had a fairly easy pregnancy (of course I also wasn't chasing around a little toddler), but this one has been more challenging physically for me and I'm looking forward to meeting my little boy and getting my old body back. For those of you who have been pregnant or are pregnant now...what was the toughest stage of your pregnancy? The easiest? I'd love to hear!

P.S. Michaela's L.A. apartment was recently featured in Rue Magazine. I.am.in.awe. :)

These photos are so gorgeous - you really, really look beautiful (and you would never know from these shots that it's been a difficult pregnancy).

Um hi you're beautiful. And that maxi dress is just the icing on the cake. Love! And I also can't wait to sneak a peak at your little boy :)

Johanna said...

You look fantastic! I say the toughest part is that final month for me. It's hard to bend over and hard to be comfortable and like you, chasing a toddler is tough!

gorgeous photos Alexa! you may feel terrible but you are glowing and look absolutely radient.

the first trimester was the worst for me in both my pregnancies. i hated the feeling of being "heavier" but not showing, the extreme tiredness and of course being nauseated all the time. and i have to say with my twins i had the worst swelling. ever. strangers would stop me to ask if i was okay ;)
