My Dear Family,
I'm sorry we don't see eye to eye about those two little numbers that appear on the thermostat. You have done a wonderful job of going outside to warm up. Thank you. Thank you also for not sitting too close to me. Or touching me. To my daughters dear, thank you for not minding when I use my baby protrusion to steady your head as I do your hair, or occasionally bumping into you with my belly. Just when I think I've learned to maneuver gracefully, I knock something over or whap you in the head. Sorry about that. Thank you for using your big arms to hug me. And husband, I will soon rejoin you in late night treats. I miss those. Also, it won't be long before I will be warming my feet on your legs instead of the other way around. I know you've missed that. Cuddling can also resume at that time. Before we know it, I will be able to share this little heater with all of you, and I'm pretty sure it will be a darn cute one and you'll appreciate the discomforts we've all tolerated.
One more thing. Thank you for being excited about having another little one squeeze into our lives.
Note about the dress: I stood in my closet Sunday morning sighing at my choice of clothes when I remembered this dress I made when I was pregnant with Pearl. I was elated to see it still fit over my growing mound. Vogue 2377 is the pattern I used, lengthening the hem on the lace-like fabric. I cut out the dress twice, once in the lace and once in lining and sewed it up as one still adding facing around the neck so you can't see the seams through the top layer, but left the sleeves without any lining.
that dress looks fabulous on your belly, Katy! why can't all summer maternity dresses be that long? i've had a heck of a time trying to get the "knee length" ones to be just that. finally gave in and bought some black calf length maternity leggings to go with them.ReplyDelete
girl you are one beautiful pregnant person with great style to boot. I love that dress... the color is just fitting for you, the beach lover:) I hope things and temperatures get back to normal soon... I am ready to see this little baby!!!!ReplyDelete
You look beautiful!ReplyDelete
Lovely dress and lovely bump!ReplyDelete
And this is the first summer that I am the freezing one! It's been a nice change....
You look beautiful! Love the dress, too. I've been looking all over for that type of fabric and can't seem to find it online!ReplyDelete
Your dress is beautiful, and so is your bump ;). I did the exact same thing to my kids the last time I was pregnant, the bumping and resting my daughter's head while doing her hair. I think every woman who has had children can agree with everything else too. Congratulations on the new baby and good luck with the delivery!ReplyDelete
What a cute & funny post! You look adorable and that dress. Very flattering indeed :)ReplyDelete
I need to print this for my family. Especially the part about touching.ReplyDelete
Soo sweet!! I love this : )ReplyDelete
Oh Katy, how can you possibly be so pregnant and so cute???ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you wrote this. I'm only 9 weeks along and I'm already feeling much of this! And, totally funny, you recently posted a picture of yourself with one of your daughters snuggled up against you (at a table or something?) and anyway... last night when my son was trying to snuggle up to me on the couch and I just really didn't want any one or any thing touching me I thought, "How can that No Big Dill lady do this?!"ReplyDelete
Everytime I click on your site, I'm just enamored. Pregnancy, mamas, little girls, beautiful hues...always fun.ReplyDelete
So true, so true. I can't wait to see for the new little one!ReplyDelete
PS You look beautiful, you long-legged-beauty!ReplyDelete
I need to copy this apology to my family. I am seven months pregnant and seem to snap at anyone who complains that it is too cold in the house. I just want to stop sweating :) I am glad that I am not the only one.ReplyDelete
you are beautiful katy...ReplyDelete
Wow you look amazing in that dress.ReplyDelete
You look close,I hope so!ReplyDelete
After carrying very active twins I can feel your discomfort.
Best of luck.
I was laughing at the post when I noticed your updated profile...very funny.ReplyDelete
I love your outfit. You look radiant. I really like your shoes.ReplyDelete
Love, love, love the shoes. And love the gracefulness that you transmit through this picture! You look really radiant. Congrats on the 6th baby Dill. I envy your courage (though I konw it's not a matter of courage). I have two kids and I think that will be it... unless God surprises me with a baby bump one of these days...ReplyDelete
The dress with the shoes and belt look fab!! KxReplyDelete
no apologies needed! you go girl! it's countdown!ReplyDelete
Love the dress and everything you do! Such an inspiration!ReplyDelete
My most favorite man of all time (my husband) is the youngest in his family with FIVE older sisters!!! He is kind hearted, understanding, hardworking, thoughtful, and a very much a mans-man!! (Several of his sister's were tom-boy types!) Ha! Thanks in large part to all the girls he grew up with! I hope you have a little boy, he will make an amazing husband some day to some lucky girl!
P.S. I live in NYC with my hubs and two kids... if there is anything you need from here let me know! Love the fabric and trimming stores in the city!
Love the dress...you look beautiful.ReplyDelete
Love this dress and letter. :)ReplyDelete
Awe you look beautiful in that dress! I'm feeling your heat tolerance also but way on the other end of the spectrum of carrying around a little portable heater...more like flashes of heat and low tolerance for anything or anyone...lol!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful, cooling week :)
You are a beautiful woman. I love your blog and your sweet family!ReplyDelete
