Three posts in less than one week!? Holy cow....what has gotten into me? I suppose that's what happens when you "conceal" your pregnancy for 17 weeks. I'm left with lots of catching up to do. I know that many of you were expecting the "next" post to reveal the gender of our little bubs, but you will just have to sit in suspense a little bit longer!
When I was pregnant with Charlotte we snapped the first "official" belly picture when I hit the 16 week point. Well...I have since surpassed the 16 week mark with Baby #2, but thought I would share the picture that we took that day!
16 weeks with little Miss Charlotte - I remember thinking "wow, I am finally starting to LOOK pregnant." HA! It just looks like I ate a big dinner!
16 weeks with Baby Ritchie #2 - Yup, there is definitely a baby in there, but I'm proud to say that at 16 weeks I am still rockin' my skinny jeans (we'll see how long that lasts!). I feel like I'm a little "rounder" this time Yes? No?
There are a few (obvious) differences between the two pictures above that I should point out:
-Location, location, location! Matt and I have been in our rental house for 5 months now. I figured that the owners of our old place wouldn't like me showing up to take monthly pictures in front of that door, so we were forced to pick a new spot. What a better place than at the end of a hallway with a picture of my 1st little miracle right over my shoulder. There ended up being a glare on the glass in this shot, but I know that she's there...and that's all that really matters.
-I've switched directions! After looking through all of my "Baby Bump" pictures from Charlotte, I realized that I my LEFT side is my BETTER side. I'm crediting it to more hair covering my giant Bogler forehead.
-I have a head this time around! Not sure why we opted for JUST the belly in the first 16 weeks. Weird. Maybe I looked like I had just rolled out of bed and didn't think it would make for an attractive picture. Who knows!
-I'm wearing glasses (FYI, I wasn't wearing glasses in the headless picture). I won't go there. This is supposed to be a happy post and glasses definitely do not equal happy for this girl. GGGRRRRRRRR.
So there you have it - Me and our little 16 week avocado-sized baby.
