So apparently getting pregnant meant abandoning my blog!
I always thought I’d be one of those adorably put together pregnant mamas that took gorgeous weekly photo updates that incorporate the baby size fruit of the week with glowing light and compositions. Or that I wouldn’t bail on all other aspects of life except the things that *have to* be done everyday.
But I am so not.
I didn’t start taking weekly photos until halfway through the pregnancy. I am over 2 months (or is it 3 now?) behind in my pregnancy devotional and even further behind in my pregnancy journal. I get my shop orders done and anything outside of that for friends and family takes me forever and a day and absolutely nothing personal has been worked on like my daily lettering or THIS BLOG. Oh and the house basically became a disaster of clutter (I literally just finished unpacking from our big trip last fall this past month!). Oh and the bills that I have missed paying (multiple times) and the other random mail that I keep finding from December and January… I can keep going but I think you get the point.
Having that awful morning sickness, from week 7 and on, left me drained and constantly behind.
But guess what? I LOVE being pregnant and am going to miss it sooooo much!
With a less than a month left to go, I’m already getting very sentimental about missing my baby bump. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to snuggle my baby boy in person… but I will miss this easy way of always having him near and knowing he’s safe. I’ll miss the pregnant happy glow and the sweet looks from strangers. I’ll miss feeling his crazy kicks and what can only be some amazing dance moves as he moves from one side of my tummy to the other in one fluid movement.
So now here we are, coming up on week 37… dilating and effacing away! Ah!!
Maybe the next post will be introducing my little boy to the blog world… or maybe it’ll be my maternity photos or the amazing baby showers. Expectations are out the window so we’ll just have to see!

Haha I love this post! I love how happy you are and I love your glow. You are the cutest pregnant Sammi but I can’t wait to meet that boy. The way strangers were with the pregnant me was probably my favorite thing. There is just something about it, everybody talks and is so sweet to you. Love you. And ps get your act together and post more, I really like it. xoxoxo

I too will miss your pregnant belly. There’s nothing quite like having that growing baby inside of you, but oh the snuggles I’m looking forward to, and the belly laughs, and the kisses, and the peek-a-boo, and… you get the point. It’s all such a beautiful blessing.. I’m so glad I get to witness this incredible journey! My heart has grown so much watching you fall in love with your son. Love you!
