final???) belly cast.
I've said it before, I believe, but I really love these keepsakes that I have done for each of my children. Although, Miss Schmoo's is yet to be painted it is one of those pieces of "art" that I love hanging on my walls. It's a great talking point too.
I have to say that when we did the first one when I was pregnant with AJ I thought I looked MASSIVE but now, comparing all three, hers is so tiny. Just goes to show what a good set of stomach muscles can do in that first pregnancy.
What is even more amazing is that they are all so completely different. Even Miss Schmoo's, who I thought was very similar to her sisters, looks uniquely hers which has made me really happy. Hers has a slight twist to it which shows she was sitting in some "look at me" kind of pose when we did the first cast and I love it.
And this one, well it's quite different again. There isn't much of a widening at the sides like with the girls. This baby is all out the front - probably due to the "relaxed" (read: separated) stomach muscles I was blessed with after my 10 pound Schmooey entered the world.
I have decided I am going to get the girls to decorate this little one's belly cast. I think it will be so fitting (only wish I'd thought of that when I'd done Schmoo's). I will post a picture of all three once they're all painted - don't hold your breath Schmoo's two and hers is still white. ; )
Anyway, it was a lovely day catching up with T who I hadn't seen in so long and had almost started to feel lost without her presence. It really has ended the week well. And, tomorrow, I think we're off to those stacking specialists again to grab a couple of things so I can put the nesting monster to rest. Oh, and in keeping with my vow, I'm going to try and organise to meet up with some friends along the way too.
PS. I'm in the 10WW. Holy curap! How did that happen?
