month 7

Filed under: baby, carmen, family, pregnancy pictures — Jana @ 4:46 pm


I heart Wendy and her amazing abilities behind a camera.
Here is my 7 month shot. Yes I know I didn’t  do a  6 month shot, and I also realize that I forgot my yellow bracelet  (which I am bugged about).  I am slacking… but this has been a busy couple of months so sue me.  At my most recent doctor’s appointment I found out that this baby is huge already.  He is weighing in at 4lbs 8oz and since they are supposed to just about double their weight in remaining weeks he is probably going to be of similar girth to Carmen (who was 9lbs 4oz).  I certainly have gained enough weight already. When your Dr asks you if it’s because of swelling and you say no, and then she says “Oh so it’s just Christmas huh?” you know you are packing on the poundage.   Let’s just be thankful that Lee and I produce very thirsty babies.

This month I also had Wendy take a bunch of other preggo shots, before I get so big that it’s just sad.  And since I am already testing the tensile  strength of that shirt as it is, I’d say it was a good call.  She did an amazing job with my pictures, and I could not be happier.




Oh, and by the way, In case you wanted to know, I think my husband looks freaking HOT in our family pictures!  That’s all, carrying on…


dsc_4867oldskoolMy little Carmie looks so adorable in these shots, I love them!

She is growing up so fast, the complexity of her personality grows so much all the time now.  She says the funniest stuff to me on a constant basis.  I wish I could remember them all but the ones off the top of my head…

I asked her if she needed to go potty, and she said to me “No mom, I just have a wedgie in my tail”.  That made me laugh pretty hard. (And she is finally potty trained… YAY for me!  Not changing diapers anymore is the best ever!)

The other day when we were eating at white lime, I asked her if I could have one of her gummy worms and her only reply was “Sorry man”.

And just now as I was typing this she walked up to me and said “Mom, you are beautiful… You’re spoken hott!”  I think she got that from Lee calling me smokin’ hott.  I seriously love my family, it doesn’t get any better than this.

  2. Definately “spoken hott!” That last picture of you and Carmie should be in a magazine.

  3. I think you’re spoken hot too. Love that kid. You look really stunning in those pictures. Dimmette needs to freaking simmer down on her comments–you look great don’t listen to her….she’s just jealous.

  6. Seriously, gorgeous pictures. That Wendy…. Anyway, Carmie looks beautiful and you are “spoken hot.” I know that your B-day is quickly approaching and I just realized how late I am at getting your card in the mail (haven’t done it yet) so if it comes late, just know that I was thinking about ya – it’s just been a tough few months…can’t the morning sickness be over already! Anyway, love the post & HAPPY BIRTHDAY in a few days!

  8. That was such a stinkin’ cute post! I love little Carmie! She is such a character! BTW thanks for all of the advice. All of those websites and tips and such have been so helpful. Maybe someday I’ll actually make something I am not embarassed about ;).

  9. Ha ha I am seriously laughing at the “sorry man” response. Kids are so funny and Carmen seems to be at a really great age- no diapers and funny remarks! Your pictures are great. I love the belly shots with Carmen!!

    And WOW on the size of Carmen! She was huge!! More power to you!

  11. You are just gorgeous, Jana. That’s really all there is to it. I don’t care what your doctor says, you look beautiful and healthy and we all know Moseley is going to burn those lbs off in no time.

    Carmen looks breathtaking in those shots.

  12. You’re such a beautiful preggo girl. (And not preggo, of course. haha)
    Carmen is too cute. I’ll keep her if you want. ; )
    I have lots of toys and a little girl that would love more kids around. Oh, goodness help me if that happens. HAHA!!

  13. Hi Jana,
    You and Carmie, and of course, Lee, are spoken hott~~!! I think I’m going to borrow that one. :) You’re such an awesome mom, too. I love your blog and can now see it every day!!! I love you and can’t wait to see all of you soon!

    Your blog is hilarious. I love your sense of humor!

    (I think “blobs of deliciousness” will go into history also-speaking of our love for anything gooey- after the dr commented on your loveliness) :)
