Here’s to the start of 8 months pregnant!!! I’m feeling rather proud of myself, as I’m more or less seven weeks out, and I can’t believe how spritely I was at that stage (see full feature here on our Scarecrows and Pumpkins Excursion). For one thing, I was energetic enough to haul all the way to the New York Botanical Garden for a special trip to see scarecrows (okay fine so we ubered there, but it was still quite the effort if you ask me). I remember this was the first time I rocked my JoJo Maman Bébé navy maternity cape and absolutely fell in love (much like I did with my Isabella Oliver poncho, see here). It soon became a stable piece for the remainder of my third trimester (though at this point, even the cape isn’t enough to hide this puppy).
I’ll share with you some more of my office looks featuring this cape at some stage (I’ve gotten so many compliments I can’t even tell you!). The only downside, I suppose, is that it makes it difficult to wear a winter coat over this bad boy, although these days, mamma’s so heated carrying out my little kangaroo-munchkin inside, I’m almost NEVER COLD (this from a woman who’s almost ALWAYS COLD!!).
Happy Thursday you guys… and more importantly – to December 2016. I can’t believe that it’s the last month of 2016 already. Jeepers creepers do I have a lot of catching up to do still! I know, I sound like a broken record.
P.S. My little man inside has been kicking like CRAZY. I’ve asked my doc at one stage about this as I swear that he’s a heck of a lot more active than his older brother, to which he simply shrugged and said, “maybe you’re just more sensitive to it this time.” You gotta hand it to this guy, in the ten years I’ve known him, he has consistently remained nonplussed and understated.
