I am going through something pretty cool. My little sister and I are both expecting! AND we’re both having boys! Based on the expected due dates, they’d be 6 weeks apart. You already know you’ll have a family support system when you get knocked up, but this gives ‘support’ a whole new meaning. I think we share the joys and pains daily.
Last weekend, Donny and I went to Old Town Lansing to have a mini maternity photo session with her and her boyfriend. Donny did a great job being the lead photographer this time!
We played off the UofM – MSU rivalry since dads-to-be are on opposing sides. We actually purchased them the MSU onsies and they bought us the UofM onsies. We ended up switching, of course. Donny would never blaspheme his alma mater and put our baby in maize and blue. Check out more pictures from our mini session at DonThaoPhotography.com.
We got back from our UK vacation and BAM, I am officially in my third trimester. Scary. It goes by fast! Now that the distractions of planning an international vacation are over, we’re in full swing baby-mode. The week we got back, we registered for baby things. Good geezus, that is overwhelming. We didn’t register for our wedding, so it was doubly overwhelming. We’re both type A and like to research everything, but that was difficult to do while we were busy planning and throwing the Gender Reveal Party and galavanting in Europe.
For the most part, we’re done with the registering. I hope. I don’t care if the gun is fun. The baby stores are full of pushy, opinionated mom-sellers who tried to sell us their opinions as facts. "NO! We don’t want the most expensive item you sell!"
