I wanted to quickly share my maternity photos for this pregnancy! I decided to take them myself with the help of my tripod and my mom and I love the way they turned out. I purchased my dress and pink wrap from Forever 21 and nothing I'm wearing is specifically maternity - just little gems I've found and made work for my growing belly. Enjoy!
* Disclaimer: Some of the items in this article were gifted to me when I reached out to store about including them in our layette. I was not paid to promote any of these shops - all are genuine recommendations for shops that I love!
If you've been reading all of my baby prep posts, you know that my moto this time around is QUALITY over QUANTITY. I had my fill of buying every cute item on sale at Target during my last pregnancy and this time I just want a few quality pieces that are durable and made with love. A layette, is a selection of clothes that baby will wear their first few weeks home from the hospital.
I've scoured Etsy, Instagram, and Small Shop websites for my favorite pieces and built Baby Clark's layette without setting foot in a physical store. If you want to find some more personalized and quality pieces for your little one, here are my favorites and where to find them. You will be seeing lots of pictures of these outfits when baby gets here!

Building a registry is one of the most daunting tasks that some first time moms face during their pregnancy--especially if you are like me and think you need anything and everything to survive motherhood. But, the second time around it is much easier to know which products you really love and will be beneficial to your newborn. For this pregnancy, I'm working with a fantastic registry site called Gugu Guru to build a minimal 2nd baby registry. Keep reading to see what I put on that registry and why building your registry with Gugu Guru will simplify your life!

Enjoying some relaxing alone time is hard as a mom, but it is even harder as a pregnant mom! When you get a few minutes alone to unwind you have to take full advantage of that time. My new favorite thing to do is make a fancy "mocktail" and sit on our balcony (when it isn't 500% humidity) and just listen to my plants grow. Ocean Spray® makes a fantastic line of mocktails that I love to spruce up with fresh fruit and sip in silence and let stress fade away!
I am 25 years old with a 2 year old son and a wicked handsome husband living in Birmingham, Alabama.
