25 weeks / hello halfway mark



this pregnancy is rounding second base! the months are flying by, i can hardly remember which week we're at. feeling the punches and kicks are my favorite. it is so fun to have benji talking to our little guy constantly, giving him kisses, saying good morning to him, wrestling with my belly and calling him by his nickname, spoppy. benj happily munches a snack while we listen to his baby brother's heartbeat in the doctor's office. he knows the drill, mom, you're gonna sit up there on that papery table. i love the whole family excitement for this new babe. i remembered the heartburn but had forgotten the tight stretchy stomach sensation; as if this babe is blowing up my belly like a beach ball. (at the end of a long day, i feel like it's going to pop!) i'm feeling rounder than ever and am rocking the maternity wardrobe. we are still paddling around boy names like a ping pong ball and won't likely land on one until we meet him face to face. i know pregnancy and babies and birthing are always full of surprises. umm, hello emergency c-section. we are feeling grateful this pregnancy is rolling right along. we splurged on a spontaneous pack of oreos the other day. double stuffed. exactly the way i'm feeling.

side note / julia wade of photography fame recently launched her new re-branding. i am so proud of this logo we created. a new logo is always an awesome collaboration; it must be perfectly suitable and still perfectly personal. small businesses rule. thanks, julia.

You are an adorable pregnant mommy! I was wondering what week...so thanks for the update!

Enjoy!

Wow! Look at you! So cute. I love that Benji is loving this along with you. i was sitting here thinking about hugging my 12-year-old today and how fast the days go. Just reading a cute post like yours helps me remember to slow down and enjoy each day. xoxo

Adorable! I love that cardigan... and Benji is the sweetest photo buddy.

This second time around - I feel like my belly is more "out there" than the first time. I keep bumping it into things.

That logo is great - I love the coral/red.

You look beautiful! You make pregnancy look good, Marta. So sweet to hear that things are rolling along and that the brothers are already having fun together.
The logo you designed is spot on. It looks so nice as a watermark on her photos, too.
