Dreambaby #2 Pregnancy BUMP PHOTO! (week 24)

I can’t even begin to tell you what an encouragement you were to me last week. I loved reading about other women’s experiences with pregnancy and weight gain. I’m going to keep looking back at those comments when I feel discouraged – and after this baby is born, when I’m not losing the weight as fast as I want to! You gals are amazing. THANK YOU!

This WEEK 24 photo was taken at my mom’s house…

24 weeks!

I dropped Kenton off there this morning for my weekly “break.” Oh, how I live for Wednesdays! I love my kid, but I also love knowing he’s in Grandma’s loving and capable hands for the day and I can run errands, blog, visit with friends, get a pedicure, get my hair trimmed – all of that good stuff, without a little one to wrangle in the process.

It’s been really strange to go from working full time and having me/adult time every day/all day to being a mom 24/7. For the most part, I’m embracing this new adventure – but I still need a break at least once a week. I’ll admit, I’m looking forward to my MIL returning this fall and getting another day to myself. Of course, I’ll be working then too (more on that another day)… but it will still be nice to be out of the house and around adults. 🙂

Okay, I’m off for some more “me time” today… and Kenton is no doubt wearing out his Grandma as I type!

I think he’s transitioning now from walking to RUNNING… Have fun, Mom!

    You look so awesome! Just a beautiful momma. And I totally never knew if you were a stay at home mom or a working mom. Ryan and I have been having lots of deep and meaningful conversations about this very topic lately, so I have to say that I always like to see what other moms do. That’s awesome that your mom watches him once a week. I’m sure that’s a nice break. Can’t wait to hear more about your working in the fall. I’m just soaking it all up with a sponge over here.
