I was 35 weeks pregnant, and my biggest concern was knowing where the nearest Baskin Robbins was AT ALL TIMES.
See the proof? Badonk.
A lot has changed since I took that photo.
I am now constantly aware of the nearest Starbucks, and know exactly what time I need to wake up in the morning to get myself and baby ready, pick myself up a latte, and be at work on time (6:34am). Do I ever actually get to work on time? Psh.
Thankfully, my butt has returned to a much more normal size and no longer frightens small children and the elderly.
I have sadly lost old friends and gained amazing new ones. (Lost as in, don’t talk to. They didn’t die, so don’t you dare feel sorry for them, thankyouverymuch.)
I have come to accept the humbling, unglamorous moments of being a mother, and have found soaking your shirt in soapy water before washing really helps in getting the baby poop stains out.
Physical changes: I’ve gone from short mousy brown hair to blonde, to blonde with bangs, to longer dark brown with bangs. Gained a total of 50 pounds as of October 2008… lost a total of 60 pounds as of October 2009. Bra size has gone up (WAY FREAKING UP) and back down again, sadly. I rather enjoyed those while they lasted.
I fell in love with a sweet, LOUD, giggly, green-eyed baby girl. I fell further in love with her daddy.
