39 WEEKS | MATERNITY PICTURES

 
 
 
 


PHOTOGRAPHY BY MY HUSBAND
HELLO! 
I miss you all so much around here. 
I am officially just 4 days away from giving birth to my baby girl... 
... and I have to say I am so excited and just patiently waiting for Wednesday to arrive. 
I have been doing so much around the house and with B. Just enjoying our last few days as a family of 4.
I can't believe soon we will be 5! (Lola included).
We had a snow storm over night here in New Jersey and it was such a nice relaxing Saturday. While B slept I got into the mood of shooting my very last maternity pics. As you can see I am ready to pop and meet my daughter. Yikes! MY DAUGHTER. Sounds weird. I can't believe in just a few short days I will have two kids, like they are plural now. T W O. 
I am so grateful to God for giving me this blessing of being a mother. 
There truly isn't a better love or fulfillment in the world and I hope my kids know that one day. That I live for them. I cannot wait to see how this new journey goes. I know it won't be easy but I am simply grateful to even have this chance to be a mommy for the second time around. My goal in life is to make my kids happy. 
And I hope one day B reads this and knows that we gift him this sibling with so much love and pray that we are the best parents we can be to him and his little sister. 
Thank you so much to each one of you for keeping up with me on my Insta. I promise to post a photo of our baby girl whenever I get a chance this coming week so you can all meet her. 
Cheers to a new baby! And I hope you all have a great week, I will have a pretty busy one;)

MY SHEINSIDE STYLE

 
 
 
So as you all know I have been taking a little "maternity leave" from all my usual daily/weekly style and beauty posts to enjoy my son and prep for our baby girl's arrival. But I wanted to share a few of my Instagram snaps where I am wearing some of my picks for December wearing SheInside. I love this website because of the amazing styles and endless variety but best of all the prices. Every month I am going to bring you a few pieces from the store so you can get a little inspiration and check out their selection which I love.

WHAT HAVE I BEEN UP TO?

 
Hello my sweet sweet chicas! I am so sorry I have been MIA here for the passed 2 weeks. I am 37 weeks now and all I have been doing is prepping for the arrival of our baby girl. And to be honest it really has felt amazing to focus on my kids and family during this little hiatus from the blog. Sometime we just need to step back and enjoy all these little moments in life and I am so happy to be able to do what I love and take the time for me but still connect with you all. I have been very active on Instagram, so if you don't follow me on there I hope you will now as that will be my connection to you all for the next several weeks, since it will be easier to do that then do a full post during my maternity leave. But please know that I will be posting as soon as I can and have some time. That is why for now, I decided I will make Insta my main source and this the second, just until I get a good routine with the baby and all the new life changes coming our way. 
I wanted to share some of my Insta pics from the past couple of weeks, so that you too can see what I have been up to. everything from comfy prego outfits for my seriously insane nesting stage to my weird but delicious breakfast... my sweet girl's crib decor and my latest... sharing my son's school outfits! I just wanted to switch it up a little and give you guys a little variety on there. I love dressing up my son and can't wait to do the same with the new baby. As you can see my bump is loud and proud and I've been hanging out in super comfortable clothes. Especially the maternity jeans you see above! I was so excited when Motherhood Maternity contacted me wanting to send me some things. I chose a few pieces for me and the baby. But my favorite maternity piece has to be these perfect Jessica Simpson maternity jeans. They are so fabulous, they are skinny, ripped and perfect for a fashionable preggo mommy, I totally recommend them ladies. 
I can't wait to post pics of the rest of my amazing gifts from Motherhood Maternity, including the most adorable and cozy coat for the baby and a super fab and chic diaper bag, you are going to love it!
So this is it for now my lovelies, I truly hope you will stick with me during these next few weeks and get a little glimpse into my life as a mommy of 2 all through Instagram. I am feeling so blessed and excited and I wanted to take the time to thank you for all the kind words, amazing support and sweet love you share with me on all my social channels. Just 14 days to go until we meet our baby girl... 
With tons of love, 
Erika
