Boom!

Ok I had way too much fun with these 3 dollar confetti popper thingamajiggys from Target.  But let me tell you, I am a confetti popper customer for life--these things are instant happy makers.  A pit stop to my handy dandy prop storage unit to drop these off, along with all the other randoms lying around my house, turned into a mini maternity photoshoot.  Maybe it's all the nesting and and errand-running and stacks of books to read, but these pregnant weeks are flying by!  I'm realizing that I need to capture this season before my bump turns into MILO!  So surreal. 25 weeks and counting...

Hello Bump

These days Baby Pinkham & I are soaking up every last ounce of non-maternity-clothes days we can get until the clothes stretch no more.  Until then, I have had to be extra savvy with squeezing myself into little get-ups like this one that make me happy. FYI only two safety pins were needed. Or TMI...

Regardless, having a bump is more magical and wonderful then I ever imagined.  And the extra challenge of dressing it is fun…for now *wink*

Baby on Board!!!

AHOY!! WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!  13 weeks and counting and still wrapping my head around the fact that there is a real live human growing inside of me.  Kiwi size to be exact.  After a nice, sweet time of Trevor and I having this little secret to ourselves, it got harder and harder to not shout it from the rooftops.  I had to whip up a pregnancy announcement, Pinkham-style, and fast.  Now that I have super pregnancy radar, I have been noticing baby stuff everywhere.  The 'Baby on Board' phrase got stuck in my head after seeing so many cars with those little yellow signs in the window.  My brain synapses kept firing and next thing I know I was googling the closest costume shop and buying captain hats!

Behold the sea wall in all its glory.  A hand full of blisters from cutting poster board waves and 30 rolls of double-stick tape later (not really), we had to bust a move and take our picture quick before it all fell down.  Considering this is on wall of our guest room, soon to be baby room, I thought double-stick tape would be the safest route. And hey, it did the trick for a couple of days.

My vision for the newspaper sky was really just a fun alternative to an ugly cream wall, and then I decided it could pass for an abstract gray, New England-esque sea sky….eh?

Here's what I used to make the 'Baby on Board' life saver---excuse me, 'life preserver' according to the Boss Man .  A life saver is a piece of candy, get it straight:

-Styrofoam wreath (from the floral section of the craft store)

-1 yard (at most) of orange fabric

-Scraps of white fabric

-Custom cut rope (from the hardware store)

-Black felt adhesive letters

-Hot glue gun & a couple glue sticks

-Scissors

In a visual nutshell, here is what I did!  Minus the rope part.  I'm laughing because I remember being so frustrated cutting and gluing that stupid rope that documenting it was the last thing on my mind.  But I bet you are smart enough to figure it out!  Just add a dash more of patience than I did ;)

Just in case you didn't' know, Charlie tends to wear his heart on his sleeves/fur.  He's already a slight bit jealous, and had to make a few cameos during our little photo shoot to make sure we hadn't forgotten about him yet...

And so it begins, the first of many photoshoots for Baby Pinkham.  Anchors Aweigh!
