Baby Funky Town - The Bump

I saw the cutest idea for a blog link-up ever and couldn't resist. Thanks to Shell at Things I Can't Say for sharing "Rockin' the Bump'.

Three summers ago we were preparing for the arrival of Baby Funky Town. Yes, this was the working name thanks to his big brother because it took us the full 9 months to come up with the oh-so-creative "Justin." ...and his middle name is after our dog. True story.

Baby Funky Town was a 'surprise' to say the least and it took me 9++++ months to come to grips with the fact that he'll be staying with us for the long haul. I took this unexpected third pregnancy as the last chance I'd have to take some fancy maternity photos.

My very talented friend Virginia Hartman shot these 2 days before Baby Funky Town came shimmying into our lives.

  14. Gorgeous pics! You have such a beautiful family! (My #3 was a little unexpected too -- I think I was pretty detached for most of the pregnancy1)

  20. Ok, lets talk for a second about how much I hate you for looking so gorgeous so late into your third pregnancy. By my third I looked like a psych patient on suicide watch. You, and your children, are GORGEOUS!!!!!

    And did you say you skipped 3 Dave Matthew's concerts??? Are you crazy. You have some serious will power. I think I'd be most nervous about the amount of second hand weed you always get at a Dave show!!! Though I have to tell you I was totally contracting on the way home from that Bon Jovi show!!! Brady mananged to stay in and cook a bit longer luckily.

    Funny thing is that I figured out I was preggo (for the 3rd) time the day after another Bon Jovi concert. I was wondering why I was sooooo hungover from the few beers I drank at the concert the night before. Ooops! :)

    Thanks for swinging by to see my Bon Jovi Belly. I can't wait to read more of your blog! I love it already.

    Lots of yummy love,
