I feel like my Instagram posts are getting longer and longer, probably because I have been taking more pictures with my phone versus my SLR. I know this is bad and I really need to pull my big camera out more, but the phone is just so darn easy!
Starting in June I think I'm going to start blogging with some of my iPhone pictures throughout the month, and whatever is left over will go in the monthly Instagram post. This will spread everything out more. There were so many shots of May that I wanted to use, so I'm just dumping them all on here. Because I can. :)

May was a crazy month with lots of to-do lists that kept me on track and accomplishing things before Naomi's arrival. I was kind of a crazy lady hauling things in and out of the house and yard and who knows what, thinking maybe all that activity would make the baby come faster. Well, no such luck, but at least I got a bunch of things crossed off that list. Because right now, I'm not getting ANYthing done. I can barely brush my teeth and get my makeup on, and I rely on B for basically everything else right now. He is officially Mr. Mom. It got really stressful at the end of the month with the end of school and Naomi being so little, but school getting out right after--it was just perfect timing. Now I can sleep in if I need to and I have absolutely nowhere to be at any given time. It's great!
Looking back at these pictures, I feel like the ones in early May happened ages ago. So much has happened and our lives are so different from then to now that it just doesn't seem possible it was just a month ago. Time plays tricks on us that way, that's for sure. Also, seeing those belly shots reminds me how wonderful it is to not be pregnant anymore!!! Lots of things to be grateful for over here, most of all our sweet Naomi girl.
