It's Like, Blackmail Worthy

So last night, I'm sitting at my computer chatting with Holly, when all of the sudden she says, "I have big belly Sara pictures!"

I must say, for a moment, I did not believe her. I was pretty sure there was not a single photo of my pregnant belly in the entire world. And I liked that thought. I am NOT photogenic in the least bit, and in every picture taken of me, no matter how much I weigh, I have 12 chins. I'm pretty sure everyone on my mom's side of the family has the same issue. Even though we don't have them in real life, in pictures they are front and center.

After the initial shock of my little picture-less utopia being crushed wore off, I figured it couldn't be THAT bad. That, my friends, is a lie. I know I'm VERY critical of myself, but that's just how I am. I see the flaws no matter what. However, Miss Zoe DID just turn five two weeks ago, so it was fun for these pictures to surface when they did. So, in honor of today being the day Zoe was SUPPOSED to be born, I will share one of the photos with you.

Also? I have to share because none of my friends or family in Indiana ever saw me this pregnant. With either kid.

The day before Zoe made her debut. I was totally in labor when this was taken. 

Consider yourselves lucky this isn't the one where my belly button looks like a giant third nipple in the middle of my belly. THAT is pretty gross.  Also? Totally looks like I just shoved a basket ball in my shirt.

I distinctly remember being thoroughly impressed with your adorable, pregnant self. I still am - flaws or no flaws (I have the same 12-chin issue in photos too), you are adorable. Whether you like it or not. :-)

Aw, that's a cute pregnant belly. And at least you don't have pictures like these:


Seriously! :)
