  •   karenmdana @whollykao ... Regularly until 6-8 months if I recall! Then we didn't need it as much but still use it now if she's showing any signs of belly distress! I swear by it. We could actually hear the bubbles popping in her belly when she was young! 2w
  •   whollykao @karenmdana whoa that's awesome you could hear the bubbles pop!! magic gripe water! 2w

whollykao I'm not one to post selfies, but here we go. I'm amazed at how God created the human body - for women to be able to carry a life for 9 months and that the body knows exactly what to do to push it out. I took the pic on the left this past Tuesday, the day we got home from the hospital. The pic on the right is from today, 1-week post partum. I'm amazed how the body can transition back. ok, now end of my gushy rant! 1mon

whollykao my phone case finally came in! 2mon
  •   supersherrie So cute!! Where'd you get it? 2mon
  •   sberlin1 I'm on the fence on a rifle case. How do you like it? Is it sturdy?? 2mon
  •   whollykao @supersherrie it's from Casetify - they have a ton of designs (and if you buy from them, Google for a $10 coupon code!) 2mon
  •   whollykao @sberlin1 hm this one isn't Rifle, but I will have to say it's pretty basic but functional (just a slim plastic shell/no rubber). I got a Rifle one once and paid more for the rubber lined version. The rubber insert was nice and protective but didn't like how girly pink it looked so I ended up returning the whole thing! 2mon
  •   sberlin1 Wow! This totally looks like rifle. So cute!! 2mon

whollykao wall artwork done! it was actually pretty fun to make these framed pieces. am now contemplating making some for other parts of the house. hmm... 2mon
  •   ju_pri Tutorial?? 2mon
  •   beeg34 Love!!! And looking for frames identical for our nursery. Where from?? 2mon
  •   meganslam Looks great! 2mon
  •   morbidbeauty Amazing! It looks great Esther 2mon
  •   whollykao @ju_pri I'll prob blog about it later, but the quick version is: use contact paper to block out your design, then paint over your entire surface. and then you can peel the contact paper off to expose the white surface underneath, leaving clean lines :) it helps to design stuff on computer to use as a guide too. 2mon
  •   whollykao @beeg34 they are from ikea! and they come in a bunch of sizes. these were pretty cheap too ($7 each?) 2mon
  •   amyie So cutee!! Can't wait to see it in person! 2mon

whollykao full wheel at 35 weeks preggo. I'm so thankful for all the support I've gotten from the instructors and other yogis at Uptown Yoga this whole time. I'm learning to listen to my body and modify when I am tired or the belly gets in the way...which seems to happen a lot these days! *thanks to @yoga.faerie for taking this pic!* 3mon
