Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

the belly bump shots

the belly bump shots

39 weeks of belly bump shots So I bought into the whole weekly belly bump shot deal during my first pregnancy. It was fun and exciting at the start, documenting my little bump as it grew. But by week 20, my husband and I were pretty much over the weekly photo session. Setting up the white sheet in the background, trying to remember what color tank top I wore last week, reminding my husband how to use the camera... it got to be a bit of a chore. But now looking back, I'm glad we did it. Who told me wearing a spaghetti strapped tank would be a good idea, by the way?

The other documenting we did was to follow along with the weekly emails I received about what size the baby was. We'd snap a photo of me posing with the fruit or vegetable the baby was that week. I totally stole the idea from the adorable Emily over at Daily Garnish. You'll see I had to get a little, ahem, creative in the fourth picture there.

Also, the emails were totally random and sometimes would go by length and sometimes would go weight. And it looks like I found the world's smallest coconut. Meh, whatever. I tried!
