mom wear

i feel like i should point out that taking a picture of yourself is super awkward. i would also like to point out that everything i am wearing is at least 3 years old. also, i don't know way my face has to be weird in every picture i take. maybe that is just how my face always looks?

a few weeks ago, i pulled my jeans out from the boxes in our closet. i am not really a jeans person. i don't find them to be comfortable and i certainly will not wear them in the summer. will not. way to hot.  but it seems to be that time of the year again when i can tolerate jeans. last fall/winter i didn't really get wear most of my jeans because tucker had just been born and i am not one of those women whose stomach magically shrinks the minute their baby leaves it. i was pretty excited to pull out my jeans and try them all on to find that they all fit and some are even a little loose.  i even decided to wear a pair one day last week. gregg came home and looked at me and said " are wearing jeans! how weird."

the funny thing about my excitement to be able to wear this particular pair of jeans is that they are a pair i bought after having abbey. i remember being super bummed that they were a size bigger than my pre-baby jeans and feeling a little down about myself every time i wore them. i would like to say that part of myself that obsesses over my weight and size has died, but unfortunately, it still likes to come back around every now and then. i will say, that with each pregnancy it has died a little more. who knows, maybe after the 3rd baby it will be gone for good :)

Hahaha, I was telling my friend that the other day.. she is still trying to lose baby weight from #1, and I was like, "Girl, I don't know, I've kind of given up on that." I mean for real. And I think you look pretty in pictures! What do you mean your face looks funny? I think that's just you, but I totally understand...
