10 Month Bump Update: Adoption Style (Tuesday Talk #55)

I love reading pregnant moms' monthly bump updates!  Recording all the things you've felt and thought about while waiting for your little one is so sweet.  What a beautiful memory to treasure in your heart and share with your child when they're older!

I always wanted to do one, but I thought it never applied to me.  But one day while I was wearing my youngest, I realized that my bump just comes after my little one arrives.  So here is my bump update - adoption style:

Bump Update: Adoption Style.  Babywearing my little one who grew in my heart through the blessing of adoption!  www.sweetlittleonesblog.com

How far along:  10 months

Weight gain:  My heart is so much lighter now that you are with us, dear one!  But seriously, you are getting heavy at over 20 lbs now!

Nicknames:  Kangaroo and joey.  J loves to say that I carry you in my kangaroo pouch.

What I'm wearing:  a ring sling til you were 4 months old and mostly an Ergo baby carrier since then.

Stretch marks:  All over.  You make me want to be the best mother, teacher, wife, woman that I can be.

Craving: to have you close to my heart always!

Movement:  You love to bounce and kick when I carry you.  I'm so glad your legs are off to the side!

Symptoms:  After wearing you all day (especially when you're very bouncy), my back can be pretty sore!

Miss anything:  Being able to pick something up off the ground when I'm wearing you.  Now I see how pregnant women feel!

Best moment:  When you fall asleep on my chest.

Worst moment: When you wet through your diaper on me.

Favorite memories:  Taking walks, going to the zoo, visiting Notre Dame (your first time!) and hiking at the State Parks while carrying you, watching you play with my necklace, holding you during Mass and at my Mom's group at church, watching you laugh while you bounce up and down, seeing you drift off to sleep snuggled up right next to me, bonding with you while you're close to my heart.

Looking forward to: watching you grow, not just in size and age, but closer to Jesus, your siblings, your dad, and me everyday!


I has so much fun going through all of my babywearing pictures that I thought I'd share my favorites for our unique "bump timeline"!

I had a lot of fun putting this together!  I am so glad that I was introduced to babywearing this time around - I have cherished every minute of having my son so close to my heart!

Thanks for indulging me for my special little bump update!  Looking forward to reading your posts this week!  Happy Tuesday!
