one year ago...fourth of july!

Happy fourth of July, my sweet friends!
One year ago today I was ginormously pregnant.
Only days away from my due date.
In the middle of a heat wave...kind of like today, actually.

A couple days before the 4th I snagged these pics, sitting in the car, wearing an extra large beach cover-up from Target as a dress, because that is the only thing in my closet that felt comfortable on the scorching hot day.

 My hands were not swollen at all {see my rings!} - I just have stubby fingers. :)
 My baby bump was completely dropped and oddly misshapen
 Wow.  I clearly look uncomfortable.  And sitting in the very unladylike "nine months pregnant" position.

A couple days later I was fourth of July mumu!  Actually, I just wore this dress the other day and still love it...

One of the last photos before our family became "three""four!"

And here I am, one year later, enjoying that sweet baby that made last year's 4th of July celebration so uncomfortable beautiful: 

Hope you are making sweet memories this independence never know where you'll be in a year.  Hopefully not nine months pregnant in a heat wave. 


  1. Oh man. 9 months pregnant in the heat. YUCKO. This summer looks oh so much better. :) Say hi to lil Cormac!

  2. I can only imagine! I had winter babies so thankfully I didn't experience that. Of course you look fabulous at that point - pregnant or not!

  3. Love this! I'm 8 months and suffering the 100+ temps. It's not fun or pretty. Can't wait to see where I will be in a year :)


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
