Then & Now

I meant to get this post up last week, but got distracted with life. Hey, we have a lot going on!! It's a bit outdated (things change so much here in just a week!), but I wanted to share it anyway.

I thought it would be fun to do a "Then & Now" comparison, for what life was like at this point in pregnancy with Brady vs. what it's like this time around, because to me it feels completely different.

When I put my pregnancy photos side by side, there really isn't much visual difference... other than my hair! I am tracking the same size/weight with this baby as I was with Brady (give or take 1 or 2 lbs), so I can't say I'm surprised. I can notice a very slight difference in the way that I'm carrying, given that we now know Brady was breech in that photo and this baby is not. I think my belly looks a little bit "pointier" now, but that's just because I look at it all day long (it's all I can see!) I'd also like to think I have a little less face-chub this time too :) Wishful thinking!

The biggest difference in "baby prep 2008" vs. "baby prep 2012" is apparent in the next two photos. At this time with Brady, I had his room completely set up and ready to go. There was nothing more to add... other than baby, of course. I am embarrassed to say that we waited until the very last minute to get this baby's nursery together, and it's still a work-in-progress. This includes washing and putting away his clothes, buying diapers and of course, painting & decorating! I cannot believe that I am posting a photo of his room like this, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words...

{Wow. What a mess!}

To be fair, we did have the added chore this time 'round of creating a "big boy room" for Brady, which needed to be done first, to free up the nursery for the baby. So for that, I'm cutting myself a little bit of slack. And Brady's room turned out so cute too! I really need to get those photos up soon, you know, for redemption.

As I mentioned, things change pretty quickly around here, and I'm happy to report we have made tremendous progress on the baby's nursery. We have a couple of odds & ends to tie up, but I should be ready to post some new photos soon. Stay tuned...
