Baby Blair on Board!

I'm so excited to be starting this little blog devoted to our little one coming this Summer. I've been thinking about it for a while because I'd love to be able to keep a record of this journey, without overwhelming my photography blog with baby things people may not want to read. 

I'm so excited about this journey and I'm looking forward to being a mama. I've been feeling a lot better lately, I'm assuming because I'm finally into the second trimester. I started meal planning in order to get good nutrition and have been exercising a little more! (Yay!) I'm hoping now that I'm eating more than just mac-and-cheese I'll get a baby bump soon. We'll see! For now I'm in the awkward in-between stage where my regular clothes don't quite fit like they used to but I don't need maternity clothes yet. I think this is mainly because I have a lot of waist-highlighting items and they just aren't comfy any more!

Overall we've been feeling so elated (and a little bit terrified) that we are having a baby. Jonathan often looks at me, grabs by hand, smiles and says, "You know what? We're having a baby!" It's the sweetest thing. It still doesn't feel quite real yet. Still, I'm hoping to soak in every moment, thankful that this is even happening. I don't want to ever take life for granted, especially this little life.

PS: I'd love to know if you guys have any great recommendations for great pregnancy, new mom or parenting books! I'm guessing that I'll have more free time before the little one arrives than after. :)

  1. I loooove 'growing godly tomatoes' for when baby is a bit older :)

  2. This is a wonderful idea! I am so happy for the two of you! And thank you for allowing others to share your happiness.


  3. Hey Jennifer, I think the my favorite book while pregnant with my first was What to Expected while Expecting. They also have What to Expected the first year. I loved that book it help me alot with anything I needed to know about pregnancy. In both pregnancy I also liked to visit websites like babycenter.com and cafemom.com. Congrats by the way.

  4. awww, I like this. I'm glad I caught you saying you have a baby blog, on twitter. I can't wait to see your progress!

  5. This is such a beautiful and amazing journey. Once you hold that little babe in your arms you will never look at life the same. It's like the world turns different colors. On the book topic, one of my favorites is a Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Lovine. It's humorous and informative, definitely check it out. Also, if you're not familiar with Goodreads.com take a peek. It's a little network of book lovers with helpful reviews - you will find lots of gems on there. :) Happy reading!

  6. I am excited that you decided to do a more personal blog again- I had missed it from reading the Blair Affairs a few years ago :).

    Congratulations on your baby!
