...for maternity photos and baby shower
Last Sunday, I celebrated the soon-to-be arrival of my baby boy, Mason with family & friends. My mother planned and organized the event within three weeks! Honestly, I wasn’t excepting to have a shower, but I’m so thankful my mother threw me one.
The baby shower was so much fun. The location and the weather were perfect. The event was held at my mother’s church. The food was great, the decorations were beautiful, the gifts were thoughtful, the games were fun, & my guests were funny & fabulous! We all had a great time. The only challenge I seemed to have was finding a dress to wear to the shower and a dress for my maternity photos.
As I stated, I had three weeks to find something. That probably seems like enough time to those who love to shop and know where to find clothes for them, but that’s not the case for me. I need a lot time. I knew I wanted something with a long length, white and/or blue. I searched online and found so many beautiful affordable options; however, most were sold out in my size. I searched for maternity plus and regular plus size. I went to the mall and couldn’t find anything!
Finally, a little over week before the shower, I found a dress online at Forever21Plus. At one point, I purchased & canceled the order because I wasn’t sure, but I got it, wore it, loved it, and received compliments from everyone.
I never had the chance to take photos with my prior two pregnancies because one was a pregnancy loss at almost 19 weeks and the other was a premature birth at almost 29 weeks. Capturing my pregnancy this time was extremely special to me. I did not think I'd make it beyond 35 weeks, but I did. I'm so grateful.
