When I first found out I was pregnant, I couldn’t wait to start taking some cute bump photos to document Baby’s growth. I enjoy being a little artsy fartsy from time to time, so I opted to decorate a chalkboard each week (which actually ended up being more like once a month), rather than using an app or something else. I will say, the downside to using a chalkboard is it can be time consuming to keep it updated, especially if you’re like me and have to make each week’s board design a little better than the week before. 🙂 I tried to take a cute photo of the bump on the weeks I didn’t get the board decorated, like at the pumpkin patch, holding the fruit or veggie that baby was the size of, on the porch for the first day of school, etc. Just wanted to share a few of these photos with you all today so that you can see Baby’s progress, too! Isn’t it amazing how much bigger she’s grown from Week 14 to 32?!
A few more notes: I used chalkboard markers from Hobby Lobby for each design and a Magic Eraser to remove the marker. I use my app from “The Bump” to stay updated on Baby’s growth and pregnancy symptoms each week. It also tells me which fruit or veggie she’s the size of in order to update my board. I’m not sure how I plan to use the chalkboard after Baby is here, but have thought about continuing to use it to document her growth from month to month, or updating it with quotes or Bible verses to hang in our entryway from the garage.
Stay tuned for more “bumpdates!” Now that the blog is up and running, I’m hoping to post photos and pregnancy updates on a regular basis. Thanks for stopping by today! It was so nice “bumping” into you 🙂 Hehe
