#17 Weeks + Body Changes

17 weeks! Over the last year or so I’ve really been reading about body neutrality and using it in our home.  The idea is to respect your body, do what you need to do to feel healthy and well but that the body isn’t something we are always thinking about/talking about positively or negatively.  My friend Megan D says, “Our body is the least interesting thing about us” and I truly believe that.   I do still say positive things about our bodies once in a while but the focus is more on everything but our bodies and I’ve loved it.  Less...
