weeks 26 & 27

so i've been a tad behind on my baby bump posting. i do sincerely apologize ;) life has just been so busy the past 2 weeks! but, i'll have you all know that the photos were taken (i just was slow getting them developed and posted). so you're going to get a 2-for-1 post today.

week 26: an english hothouse cucumber

at 26 weeks my little guy measured approximately 14" (think the length of a cucumber). in these photos i'm wearing a newer dress which my husband picked out for me at forever 21. it's definitely not meant for maternity wear... but i think it works :)

week 27: cauliflower/ real flower :)

this week my little guy is aproximately 14.5" in length and just over 2lbs in weight. a head of cauliflower weighs just about that and so that's what we're comparing him to. being that it was mother's day on sunday though, i received a flower at church. a pretty gerber daisy, which i cut down to be 14.5"... making this week the week of the flowers. :)

i'm wearing a dress courtesy of shabby apple, which i won on this fabulous blog. i'll be honest, it makes me feel good to be able to wear a dress meant for non-pregnant ladies while pregnant. :)

ps... i'm pretty sure my little guy had the hiccups the WHOLE TIME i wrote this post ;)


  1. yay for baby bump updates! Loved both of your dresses! And the colors in all the photos were fantastic...green & gray, and blue & red.

    Your little one sure is growing!! And how stinkin' cute that he was hiccuping while you posted! :)

  2. Wish I'd looked as cute as you when I was pregnant!

  3. The dress does look fantastic! And I love the F21 dress too...like it was meant for you.

  4. you look sooo PRETTY!!! Quite the inspiration! I don't know you but I'm thrilled for you! Yay for babies and happy parents :-)

  5. haley- thanks for your sweet comments! :) it's sometimes a stretch figuring out what to wear for these photos (to be perfectly honest!) so i'm glad when it's successful!

    emily- i'm sure you were quite stunning pregnant!

    elizabeth- i know, right? it's so fun! i don't know how much longer i'll be able to make it work (don't want to stretch out the dress too much... need it for after). but it was fun for a day.

    mr & mrs- thank you for your sweet words! :)

  6. oh my! how exciting!
    that cucumber was super long, crazy how the baby measures :)

  7. Carolee, just came over from my friend Sydney's blog and can't help but love yours! You are obviously super talented and chic. Congratulations on your pregnancy, and uber creativity! :)

  8. I really like that F21 dress as maternity! I've been hearing it's a good place to shop for maternity-like dresses and the price is so reasonable too.

  9. Cute dress! I am 14 weeks along and love following your series. At our 10-week ultrasound, our little babe had the hiccups. It was so cute! :)
