trying to be "hot"

who would have known that taking pregnancy pictures would be such a struggle for me?? mike insisted on doing a mini photo shoot today so we can "document the process." well, i laughed through almost the entire thing...and when i wasn't laughing, i was giving the kind of fake smile i'd give the camera in high school when i was trying to be "hot." i can't really be certain why the whole thing was so awkward...other than the fact that i was all alone in a long series of photos...and i was wearing a body that most definitely is NOT mine any more. below you can enjoy (or be tortured) through my silly little shoot.

22 Weeks.
"yeah, i do want to show my tummy...but i'm going to keep my hands here anyway."

"fine. i moved my hands! can you see the bump now?"

"no way. if hilary clinton becomes president i'm moving to costa rica."

"are you kidding me? you still haven't gotten a decent shot?"

"i didn't know this would be so hard. my life is such a struggle."

"finally. do you think we'll have to take 30 shots every time JUST to get one good one?"

You are so cute! I know taking pictures when you're prego is no fun, but take a lot because you'll forget how big you actually get. Then when you're thinking of having a second you can look at those pics and determine if you're ready to get that big again. :)
