John's Maternity Series

{GIVEAWAY REMINDER: Don't forget to visit yesterday's post here to enter my current giveaway!}  
This is a post that I've known was coming for a long time, but is still a little bitter-sweet to finally let it out. I knew early on with our second child that I would once and for all document the pregnancy with notes and pictures. The result has been an incredible journey that has brought me so much closer to my baby that I would have ever thought possible. 
This is our journey…

  11. First off, this whole post is adorable. I am hoping that like Tammy said above you put this together into a book that he can read one day! Secondly, you look amaaazing for just having had a baby! :) You looked like you were all belly throughout your pregnancy though! Here's hoping if that day ever comes for me I'm the same way :)

  31. So precious! I am enjoying my own newborn right now...motherhood is amazing! A little side curiosity :-) I didn't gain a whole lot of weight with my pregnancy, but I do have a little I want to loose. Did you have a special diet or secret while pregnant to help you not gain extra weight?
