African Animals and Yellow Overalls | Dearest Lou

African Animals and Yellow Overalls

We went to the zoo yesterday with Daryl's family. I hadn't been in years so it was really exciting. They've really changed the place so it felt like a completely different zoo. I will be posting pictures from our day tomorrow (; This is the outfit I wore to the zoo, I wanted to wear something comfortable and I haven't worn these yellow overalls in over a year. I remember them being a bit baggy so I thought that they'd fit perfectly now that I'm pregnant and they do.

In the picture above you can't really see the details of my African animal necklace but it's pretty amazing. My grandparents purchased it when they went on a vacation to Africa a little over a decade ago. The necklace is completely hand made! I love the small details and that it belonged to my grandmother before she passed away.

Since my last post there hasn't been any changes with baby boy except I feel him kicking more frequently and harder each day. I'm also noticing that I'm a lot hungrier now than ever before. I've gained a full pound since Tuesday! I'm a little bit below what I should be at this point but that's because I lost weight at the beginning so I have a little bit of catching up to do. Shouldn't be a problem with my new appetite!
