measure me mommie!

My aunts gave me the cutest keepsake to document my growing belly - the Measure Me Mommie!


Cindy, the creator of this cute set, is actually my aunt's very good friend, and it has been so exciting to first hear about the concept, then the development, then see it take off! I'm so glad - not only because I want her to do well, but it's just so dang cute!

Each set comes with a "waistlet" and, depending on the style, different types of charms. My aunties gave me the Kristin set, which features vintage-style charms.

You choose your first charm, measure around your waist and align with your belly button, and you've started measuring! Cindy suggests picking a milestone to measure at during your pregnancy - for me, I chose family visits. For some reasons, my girls grow everytime family is around! You can see my progress so far below. I think I'm going to have to order the "extender" though, since I will probably run out of chain with twins...

25 weeks with the sisters...

You can get a cute shadowbox to display your chain in, or wear it as a necklace, or find a creative and cute way to display it and remember, "wow, I was huge!" In the most perfect sense, of course.

Here's another picture of it, modeled by my cousin's lovely wife Brita:

  1. What a cute idea! I am totally going to want one of these when John and I start having babies. I especially like the idea of wearing it as a necklace after your little ones are born. What a sweet reminder of your beginning stages of motherhood.
    Hope all is well with you and Andy! Miss you guys, quite terribly.
