Belly progression pics.

If I wanted to be more popular, I’d probably try and make this progression of belly shots more Pinterest-worthy.  Alas, no two photo-op days were alike and, therefore, it’s kind of a hodge podge.

March 2nd, the morning that I found out.  At this point, I was one month pregnant.  So long, flat stomach and toned arms!

April 3rd, about a month later.  Not a ton of growth.  I began to realize that if Brian and I hoped to get any belly shots in, sometimes I’d have to run in front of the camera mid-morning routine, with hair and makeup still undone.  I’m pretty sure I gave him just two chances to get this shot because all I was really thinking about here was breakfast.

April 24th, obviously still working on the hair and still rockin’ the squash blossom.

May 7th, feeling pretty and natural that week (week 15).  Tired of showing my bare belly and tired of pushing the kitchen table out of the way every time I wanted a preggo shot.  (Two months after this shot, those jeans still fit!)

May 7th, never one to miss the fun:

May 25th, thinking my pregnancy is still pretty under the radar thanks to a little thing called a waist.

May 25th, I’m four months pregnant.  Am I ever going to get a belly?

June 5th, careful what you wish for!  (Gee, I wish Brian and I could time these better.  Look at that hair!)

June 21st, after a hard day’s work in my Crocs.  Significant growth in the month of June!  This skirt originally prompted the “round butt” conversation .

July 3rd, slow and steady wins the race.

    Love the pictures, but you are truly the only person who has EVER wanted a stomach. If I’d known, I would have donated some of mine. 🙂

    You are looking beautiful.

    You are one of those fortunate people that actually wake up looking beautiful. Hair messy, no make-up and it doesn’t matter. There was a time in my life when I was pretty jealous of you Suzy, but thankfully I’ve been able to get over myself (God was certainly instrumental here) and enjoy getting to know you and loving you for the beautiful person God made you to be. Your beauty is a gift.

    • Thanks for your kind and honest words, Sarah. I’m so glad you don’t have to worry about jealousy now because I REALLY enjoy your feedback on Square Piece! And if no one’s told you that YOU’RE beautiful lately, well, you definitely ARE.

    Very awesome! I laughed out loud at the Brian pic! ha ha ha! You look beautiful Sue. Pregnancy looks good on you. <3

    These are great. And….. you’re probably the most stylish mama out there. Where the heck did those awesome boots come from in the July 3rd photo?

  14. OK… 1- you are just as beautiful today, if not prettier, as you were 6 months ago. 2-Brian’s going to wish you didn’t have proof of how much man weight he will gain 3-your hair. I am jealous of it the MOST in the 4/3 pic. 4-I WANT THOSE BOOTS! Adorbs!
