here, as promised, is an outfit post. the top/dress is the one i spoke of in my previous post. it was one of the many lovely items milla sent in her package. it's a special piece because, apparently many other pregnant mama's have worn it. so, i feel blessed to be the next in line to wear and cherish it while it's in my possession.

the embroidery is gorgeous, as you can see. i felt pretty all day while wearing it, which can be difficult when you're 9 months pregnant. i think milla's happy vibes clung to the top and rubbed off me :D

she also sent a floral skirt, a sweater, an adorable shawl, a hat, a dress and top and her most awesome leather leaf hair clips. now, i'm not gonna lie. when we originally talked about the swap, months back, i was really hoping there would be one in the package, but to my surprise there were two! i've already worn them many times. thank you so much magical milla for everything, you are too sweet!

as the title of this post says, i'm ripe! only a couple more weeks and we will be meeting our new babe. right now i'm just preparing for the homebirth- cleaning, getting supplies, doing laundry and mentally preparing... i'm planning on having a doula this time, which i think will really be beneficial. i met with her yesterday at my appointment with my midwife and she was super sweet. eventhough this is my fourth, i feel i still need direction and help with the pain. hopefully this baby will be smaller than shane, he was 9 lbs 8 oz! of course my first natural birth was with the biggest of the three. anyway, many exciting things to look forward to!

if i don't post again before Easter, i wish you all a most blessed day!

  1. Awe you look adorable!!
    And I hope you have a great Easter!!
    I can't wait for that little one!!!
    I'm so excited for you!!



  2. You look beautiful! The embroidered tunic is lovely, and so is the crochet cardi you have on over it. I am so excited for and your growing family. I hope you all have an excellent easter (the last as a crew of five!), and send you many smiles and hugs.

  3. oh my goodness, you are one RADIANT MAMA! that top is so beautiful, and i can just feel the pure motherly love gleaming from it and its stories of women and babies.

    so exciting to hear about your preparations!!! i'll be thinking of you! happy easter to you and your adorable family.

  4. beautiful pictures and perfect outfit for nine months pregnant. Happy Easter to you and your crew. Can't wait to meet the new addition!


  5. How fun that your top is shared by other Mama's! You looks gorgeous in it :D I'm so excited to hold your new little peanut!!!!!! :D Happy Easter- I'll be at Mimi and Baba's all weekend helping them clean up their property. It's their anniversary!

  6. You are beautiful! So healthy and happy and yes, glowing. That's one lucky baby that's gonna have you as a Mama.

  7. omg you are so gorgeous. and that shirt! so cute. i was wondering how you were doing and thinking you must be getting close. i wish you an easy and peaceful birth. i hope you enjoy having a doula. i'm a doula and it's such a wonderful job. having a doula at my births was so nice.

  8. Anne, you're so beautiful and radiant! Looking at you makes me wonder if I didn't actually get that dress just for you. It is fun to think that it had been a baby shower dress for a group of ladies on the Island next to us for a while and now it will serve you at the end of your pregnancy ;)

    I hope that these remaining weeks will be as easy-going as possible and that you have a wonderful birth. All our blessings and good thoughts and happy Easter too, m'dear.
