Bashful?



Anthropologie

I've got about four different posts half finished to share with ya'll but my brain is having a hard time developing cohesive paragraphs so I'll work on that and be back later tonight with something a bit more personal.

Monday=put up some Christmas decorations and assemble crib while drinking hot chocolate that has gotten cold because one of three people needed my attention.

* My ankles and finger joints are back!
* Ruby is beautiful.
* Sleeping on my stomach again, if only for thirty minutes at a time, has been glorious!
* I can reasonably fit into ONE pair of pre-pregnancy jeans. You don't know how happy this makes me since that didn't happen for MONTHS after Sebastian.
* My favorite part about Thanksgiving is the mashed potatoes and pecan pie. And being with family. But I really love that pecan pie.

xoxo,
Rachel

when i was pregnant the hardest thing was not being able to sleep on my stomach. luckily i was preggo during the summer months so i would dig holes in the sand for my belly and lay on my stomach on the beach. haha! :)

I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving in Australia. I think it's a lovely tradition. Although I could just start my own family thanksgiving.

So great about the jeans!! It's a great confidence booster when you need it the most.

I love that first hair clip, the colors are so pretty. Good luck with all of your projects and congrats on the pre-pregnancy jeans. I'm two years out and still can't fit into mine. Sleeping on your stomach after pregnancy is the best feeling even if it's slightly painful at first.

I remember dancing around the loungeroom 6 weeks after my daughter was born because I tried on my jeans and, beyond my expectation, They FIT!!
Hope your family is surviving all the topsy turvey world of newborness!
