Emily's pregnancy shots

Emily is one of my very dear friends. She was my sister's camp counselor years ago (I think I was 14, she was 17), and is the person who took me to get my tattoo when I was 15. Yup. 15. My how I have changed. She is like a big sister to me and although we don't get together often since she lives in a different state, we stay in touch a lot. She has given me life advice and career advice and is one of the most put together people I know, with the biggest and kindest heart. She was one of those geniuses that was in college by the age of like, 16 or something, and taught herself fluent sign language! She also is prettier than barbie with her blue blue blue eyes and blonde hair, and I will always remember the bright red lipstick she USED to wear every day. Remember that Em? She mentored me a lot when I was doing behavioral therapy (for kids with autism) since she is one of the best ABA consultants in the business.

Em has a daughter Shayna, who will turn 3 on our wedding day! (October 20th). Hopefully she will be able to be one of two flower girls (along with Clary). How adorable would that be?

Since Shayna was born in October, Em had a "pumpkin shower" for her and wore this:
Seriously, cutest idea ever.

Well, Em is pregnant with babygirl 2 and due in July. So no pumpkin shower, but look at the pictures she sent me the other day! 

Beach ball for a summer baby!

This got me thinking - what are some belly shots you could do? (Yes I know I'm nowhere near pregnant but I love thinking of themes etc).

Here's what I've come up with:
-basketball for march madness
-fish bowl
-Mickie/Minnie Mouse (if your guy has a beer gut....tell him to work out! Just kidding, he could be mickie and you could be minnie)
-man in the moon (or ET over the moon)

You could honestly paint anything on it but I was trying to think of things that are spherical so that it looks like you're actually holding it.

Anybody done something like this? Tell us about it!


  1. Oh Ravity, I love you so much! I do remember those wonderful, unforgettable memories from Camp Alonim, and our late night special talks. I am so happy for you that you have found your soulmate and that he cherishes the amazing woman you are. I can't wait for the day to paint your belly B"H ;) XOXO -Em

  2. Me too! :-)
    I can't wait to see YOU at your baby-shower, so soon!
    Shabbat Shalom big sis
