When I was pregnant with A, I dodged the camera so successfully that I only have one photo of myself for the whole nine months. I was just so unhappy with how I looked. I don’t have time for that nonsense this time around. Yes, thanks to two previous pregnancies, I have a diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia, giving me the super power of looking twice as pregnant as I am. But this is me, and this is my family, and there is always beauty in these moments. I think that’s meant to be a pep talk. Don’t hide from the camera, mamas! (although learning to take a good selfie so that you can throw out the unflattering photos is a great survival skill. I took all these myself with the timer and tripod)
But that still left lots for my little foragers to find.
