How would you describe your pregnant style?

Simple, minimal, and as effortless as possible!

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?

I grew much more quickly during this second pregnancy and needed comfortable clothes much sooner. But the biggest challenge by far has been maintaining energy levels throughout the day to entertain and chase a 3-year-old (I work from home, so we get to spend a lot of time together), to sustain and grow another human, and still have coherent adult thoughts by the end of the day! In other words, send coffee. :)

What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?

His big brother is so excited to meet him and teach him how to play with his trains, and I can't wait to watch them interact.

What's your top 5 registry essentials?

I'm buying diapers, a few new outfits (2 boys means plenty of hand-me-downs), and keeping my eye out for a moses basket for the first few months of babies life. I'm sure there will be more needs that pop up as baby grows, but Target is just a few blocks away!
