34 weeks

I'm very late posting this seeing as how my baby boy is almost 2 months now. But here is my last picture from my pregnancy at 34 weeks. The very next day was my baby shower & I had my sweet little bundle of joy almost 2 weeks later.

32 Weeks

Halloween snuck up on me, but it wasn't like I was gonna be able to do much anyway this year. Most people around my area like to celebrate things by drinking. Just to clarify, I don't like drinking much anyway but it would of been nice to go to a costume party & take memorable pictures with friends. But instead, I stayed home, done my chalkboard, took my pictures (which are awful & I'm sorry), & looked at other peoples photos for Halloween thanks to social media lol. Anyway, that's enough ranting, here is my 32 week update.
