My Pregnancy Progression

Finally, a new post! As you can probably imagine, my life became quite hectic following Charlotte’s birth. Between moving, a new baby, and trying to keep Modernly Wed running, I have not been left with much time to dedicate to this blog. Now that Charlotte has some semblance of a sleep schedule, I have a free hour or two in the evening! Glorious.

This post is one I have been meaning to share for a while. During my pregnancy with Charlotte, I took photos every 2-3 weeks wearing the same dress with the intention of creating a progression composite as a memento. I found out I was pregnant VERY early, so my progression starts way back at four weeks, and ends with Charlotte in my arms at week forty.

The hardest part of this progression was finding a dress that would fit through my entire pregnancy, but still show the change in bump size. I happened across this blue and black striped stretchy maternity dress at H&M and purchased it one size up from my pre-pregnancy size. A belt and chip clips are holding the extra fabric in the early images… but boy did I need that fabric by the end!

Introducing My Sweet Baby Girl

Today, I am excited to introduce my sweet baby girl, Charlotte! She was born on September 23 at 10:50am weighing 5 lbs 9 oz. Now you know the reason I haven’t been keeping a strict posting schedule lately. Charlotte is an absolute joy and I am so thrilled to finally hold her in my arms! Please excuse my absence, as I am still adjusting to my new role as a mother and the amazing time constraints that go along with it. Over the next few weeks, I will be working to get back to more regular posting. In the meantime, enjoy these images of my darling daughter.

Expecting an Arrival

I just found out that our baby girl will be arriving a bit earlier than expected… this Sunday morning, in fact. So, please excuse a little silence on the blog and in email communication as I transition into my role as a new mom!
