Our Little Valentine

This morning I woke up and told B, “Happy Valentine’s Day, love.”  B and I have been each other’s one and only Valentine for 11 years now — every single date has been with him. But this time next year we will get to add a new little Valentine to the mix. That’ right — I won’t just have one Valentine, but two. We are so very excited to announce a newest member to the Skeen family coming this August.

(You probably didn’t know it but there’s actually been two people in my posts lately. That’s right I’ve been dressing for two right before your eyes. I am just so sneaky like that.) 

That’s our little love’s first sonogram from December, so it’s teeny tiny there. We’ve got a few more weeks before we see if it’s a boy or a girl but either way, it’s probably going to be my favorite human ever. I can already tell he or she is going to be just perfect.

So Happy Valentine’s Day, from all three of us.

    Congratulations! I guessed this a few weeks ago when I noticed the shape of your clothing had changed slightly. Some of your outfits were looking a little more voluminous than usual! I figured an exciting announcement would be coming soon. So very happy for you.

Now that day has come. I am truly delighted for you both. May you have a happy and healthy time in the months ahead x

    OH-EM-GEE!! This post made me so happy… I have been following you since 2009 (True statement: You were the first fashion blogger I ever started following…AND you’re still the number one bookmark on my favorites list on my ipad…because of this I feel like we are real life fashion friends. haha!) I am so happy for you. I think you’re going to be an amazing mom & I can’t wait to see your style evolve over the next few months.

    PS – Being a new mom myself, there are a few things I couldn’t have survived nine months of pregnancy without:
    – JBrand makes the most phenom maternity jeans. Old navy comes in 2nd. – Gap Maternity tees and tanks are the bomb. Seriously. So comfy, wash well, and definitely were a staple.
    – F21 is an untapped resource for Maternity clothes! Long tanks (hello only like 2$ a piece!?) and their Midi length Bodycon dresses are so easy to wear with a cardi, jean jacket, or even a blazer.
    – Loft Maternity makes amazing leggings. They are thick, slimming, and the full belly band ones were my savior during my last few months of my pregnancy.
    – Lastly, there is no miracle creme or cure for stretch marks. You either get ’em or you don’t. It’s genetic. I used BioOil from Walgreens and never saw one little mark… But I’m lucky. Don’t believe the hype on all the crazy products and cremes out there!!
