30 weeks and counting

Like most mamas, I'm more often behind the camera than in front of it, taking pictures of my kids. But the other day my mama was at my house and got behind the camera to get a few snaps of me and a warm little critter that found a cozy place to rest.
I realised that I have very few pictures of my growing "bump" and although I don't feel overly photogenic these days, asked mom to get a shot or two of my belly.
The kitten nestled further down in what I imagine must be the most comfy place in the world. I'm 30 weeks into this pregnancy and already older women are asking, "You must be getting close to your due date!" and gasping when I tell them I'm not due till early December.

The boundaries of etiquette fall away when in the presence of a pregnant woman, do they not? I pray I remember NOT to say stuff like that when I'm past these childbearing years. 
PS: Kittens are available for free to good homes!


  1. Wish I could take a kitten, they're so sweet!

    You look beautiful. :) Makes me wish I was pregnant again!

  2. I get the opposite (oh, but you're so small!), which I find equally annoying!! Why can't people just say "you look so well" and ask how we're feeling? I will never, ever comment on someone's bump either! (I hope...I realize it's very tempting)

  3. A beautiful baby bump, a beautiful mama and an oh so cute kitty. Enjoy!

  4. A beautiful baby bump, a beautiful mama and a super cute kitten. Enjoy!

  5. You are beautiful! I remember writing a similar post about pregnancy etiquette when I was pregnant with V! My girls will know to be polite to pregnant women!

  6. You look fabulous and I love that that kitten is all curled up on your belly! Oh, how I wish we could take one or two! :)

    Hope you are feeling well! Can't believe that you are 30 weeks already! Your little one will be here before you know it!

  7. I love the little black kitty! He's got such a sweet spot to sleep. The only two pictures I have of myself pregnant was at Halloween and in the hospital right before my c-section. I kind of wish I had some better pics since we can't do it again.

  8. I just have to are a BEAUTIFUL woman!!

    Such natural beauty. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us of you, your sweet tummy and the adorable kitty.

    Blessings to you,
