Well, I'm just over 6 months pregnant now and feeling pretty good. The belly is getting pretty heavy and the swollen ankles are a bit out of control! We are just back from a weeks holiday in Ucluelet, BC on Vancouver Island. Hubby went out fishing every day with family friends and I swam in the hotel pool and read an amazing book, The Road. I did manage to do a little shopping around the sweet town and found a couple of boutiques that I loved.
Here is a picture of me now 6 months and two weeks along in my new dress by BB Dakota picked up at the cute boutique called Tula in Ucluelet. I'm in love with this dress and plan on carrying this brand in my shop starting this fall :)
The other boutique I found is called Ukee Baby and is very new to the town, I got these super cute little leather shoes and matching argyle baby legs for my [soon to be] bean! I know that I could probably find these in a baby boutique in Seattle, but it's so fun to get something when on holiday.
I did take a huge bag of yarn with plans on crocheting a whole wardrobe of baby things for the beam while gazing out at the marina, but somehow never found the time. I did finish my second baby cardigan before we left. I sort of used the pattern from the first one that I made, but changed it to look more like a little kimono. I'm working on a matching bunny doll at the moment, pictures coming soon.
Here are a couple of me at 24 weeks, the blue peasant top is my first actual maternity item and I got it at Target for around $20, the long lilac dress was on sale at the Gap for $29! Jacket is from my Frock Shop last fall. I love this jacket! I'm glad to be able to still wear it even though the sleeves are a bit tight!
