Their having a baby! And a few maternity musthaves.

Some of our very best friends are having a baby!  So what do we do when someone is having a baby?  Wander up to the mountains and take some gorgeous pictures of the parents-to-be.  I'm so excited to meet this baby in a few short months and I can't wait to watch you two be amazing parents.  It's the most incredible thing you can do in your life. 

I'm so excited for them and their new addition and it got me thinking about where I was exactly a year ago.  My pregnancy with Cohen lined up pretty close with their baby.  Anywho, I just wanted to throw out a few must-haves for mama.  I'm sure I've talked about this before on one of our blogs, but so many people I know are prego right now.

1. Invest in comfortable clothing!  My first pregnancy with Ava I fought buying maternity clothes for so long and then when I bought my first pair of maternity jeans I was in Heaven.  Treat yourself to at least a couple pairs because lets face it, you will be wearing them post pregnancy as well.  Zulily has some great options for a great price here.  If you register at Target, they give you a coupon for maternity items in your goody bag.  So make sure you start your registry early in your pregnancy. 

2. Belly Support.  Get yourself some sort of belly back support especially if you are on your feet for long periods of time.  This is the one I bought from Babies'R'Us.  Also grab some good insoles for your shoes.

3. Prenatal Massage.  I did a post on my favorite spot here featuring inSPArations float spa in Layton, Utah.  They also have a flotation pod that makes you weightless which is incredible when you feel densely pregnant. 

4.  Get yourself a great pillow.  Sleeping is a struggle so get a body pillow to rest that belly on.  

5. Bra Extenders.... yep.  I don't think we need much explanation here.

That is just a few of my musthaves.  Checkout Zulily, Target, Gordmans, and H&M for great pricing on maternity wear.  You won't regret it!

Now for this lovely lady.

Oh the places we go!

I went to school with the gorgeous gal and only now am I getting to know her. Her, her husband, and daughter are the straight out of a magazine. And the are so sweet too. It's not often people take me to places I haven't been, well they did.   Don't ask me what this place is, because all I can tell you is it was a dream. Thanks {w} family! Happy Weekend my friends.

Mike + Lexi

Mike & Lexi get married.  

Have you seen people in love?  Like really in love... I have.  It's these two.  It's like they just needed to find each other and now life is complete for them.  I love the way Mike loves her, the boys love Mike, and of course Lex loves Mike.  One of my many favorite moments was when I was walking with Mike and Lex.  Mike looked at his beautiful bride and said, "I wasn't sure if you had time, so I packed you a bag for after the wedding."  What??? How sweet is this guy.  I watched them each cry as they saw each other for first time as Lexi walked down the isle. 

 I'm so happy you guys chose me to be part of your day.
