Today I am feeling broody. It happens. I didn’t think it would. I am a big fan of the “one is done” club. Yet, I sit here, staring into the baby blues of my little boy who will be 8 months soon. I literally, yep literally, want to eat his cheeks when I kiss them.
I am positive they would taste great.
Yesterday I had a conversation with a friend looking for a song to use on a video she is making featuring a newborn and I immediately thought of the one I had chosen for pregnancy week by week video. True Romance is a fucking fantastic film and “You’re so Cool” is the perfect instrumental song to ever be made for a film. It makes me smile big from ear to ear every time I hear it.
So I choose it to score my little video. Pregnancy was an adventure! Not filled with prostitutes and gun fights like True Romance, but love and excitement and an emotional ending. I tried to cherish it all, the good and the bad. I didn’t feel like a self proclaimed goddess mother or anything but I did feel like a bad ass for growing this little guy inside and I guess that is kind of the same thing. His baby cheeks are still there even after being gnawed on.
Anyways, here is my video documenting my pregnancy, week by week. My husband thought I was crazy at first and would amuse me by taking the photos. However he really got into during the process and helped me scope out locations for our background shots. Last week I walked past the wall of flowers that were in bloom again and was reminded of Week 19. I was brought back to that day and how I was just starting to feel baby flutters and kicks. Yep brooding.
Did you do anything to document your pregnancy?
I wish I had documented mine but I was young and naive. I loved watching your’s progress even from across the pond!

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I took a bum pic weekly with the intention of putting maybe a few from each trimester into a frame. I’ve not even gotten them printed yet ;)
