Happy Friday guys! What is it about pregnant bellies that makes everyone want to touch them? For some reason, I can't blame people. I sit here and rub my baby belly all day long so I'm not surprised when others reach for it as well. Luckily for me, there haven't been many strangers making the gesture yetโ€”mostly friends and family which I love and get a total kick out of! Last weekend, while in Philly, we were at the wedding of one of my oldest childhood friends {who also happens to be Bob's best friend and cousin}. So there were lots of family there excited to feel the growth of their newest, tiniest family member in the making {visuals to prove above!}. The baby pulled out some extra strong kicks when Bob gave his best man speech…maybe she knew it was her pops speaking on the mic? So fun. Hope you have a great weekend filled with little moments of happiness… โ€” Joy

  2. Adorable photos! I think pregnant bellies are just awesome–it’s like real life magic in the making! But I definitely don’t ask to touch unless the mom-to-be gives permission first. Even if babies are exciting, it’s still not cool to totally disregard personal space.

  3. Where is your dress from? So cute. I have a wedding in September and I’ll need a dress to stuff my 7 month pregnant belly into!

  13. Ha hah–fun! you guys are the cutest evah! my dear, i’d have to agree w/Kat up there, you do make pregnancy look gorgeous.
    have you found a good Szechuan place in LA yet? the photo of those spicy dumplings the other day made me drool on my desk at work.
    happy Friday!

  14. You look great! I remember the first time my little girl kicked in my belly it was to my husband’s voice too. She’s already showing signs of being a daddy’s girl. : ) mine definitely is.

  15. Love your blog and you’re such a cute little pregnant lady. I have to confess that I went through ALL of your food postings the other night (I know — how lame is that??). I absolutely love them and have saved SO many links to places to try or to use as gifts…. or just to order some goodies for myself ๐Ÿ™‚ I just ordered some brownies for friends as a thank you. Seriously love it.. keep it up!

  16. you are looking super cute with your little belly! and yes its LITTLE even though it may feel humungous to you! congrats!

  17. Beautiful pictures, Joy! The first one makes me giggle because it looks like the prom picture of two teenagers who have gotten into a little too much trouble!
    You look fantastic!
