Nautical with a side of polka dots

Hey friends,
Just a quick warning that this post is all over the place.

Sorry I've been lacking on the outfit posts lately. These pictures were taken on Thursday so I was exactly 18 1/2 weeks along. Belly keeps getting bigger and bigger and I feel SO HUGE. I know I will look back and read this when I'm further along and think I'm crazy but my tummy has never been so big and round. However, I wouldn't trade this bump for a flat tummy any day, I love the fact that I am carrying our little boy.

So last Thursday when we found out the gender I was completely in shock. I have been calling the baby a girl for months now and it was so weird to think that I had a little boy with his little boy parts inside of me haha. As the week went by, the thought of having a little girl sounded more and more strange and now it just makes sense. . WE ARE HAVING A BOY<3

On that note, earlier this week I had the opportunity to visit with my friend Whitney. I hadn't seen her since she was about 8 months pregnant and it was an absolute delight to meet her little Arlo. I hadn't been around any baby boys lately and he was just the cutest thing ever, he was all full of smiles and chunky rolls! I wish I could describe into words how much love I felt between the two of them and how wonderful it was to witness it (;
 -Baby boy is moving as I type-

That's the other thing I was going to bring up, I can now feel baby move every once in a while! It is usually only during the wee hours of the morning but it's the coolest sensation ever! I can't wait until I can feel him moving and kicking more frequently.
