I reached five weeks today and I think we are going to start a weekly photo series tomorrow. In an act of faith, I bought five pieces of maternity clothing from Old Navy earlier this week. They had an awesome sale that was 30% off everything, including clearance prices. I paid $40 for five pieces of clothing, three of them were dresses. There is a light gray one that I will be wearing from now hopefully until next September for all of the weekly photos.
