If you go to the company's site, there is a whole gallery of photos showing the different ways people posed for and painted their casts. I wasn't looking to turn Kate's nursery into a nipple-opolis so I took the conservative route and put my hands over my chest. Some of the example pics on the company's website are pretty amazing and even look professionally painted. I decided to keep mine simple and thought it would be a little more sentimental if I painted it myself. And...let's face it, I'm not that creative.
I had to put in a profile shot so you could see the overinflated beach ball that was my stomach.
Before I hung it on the wall, I put it over my belly to try and remember what it felt like to be 9 months pregnant again. Toward the end of my pregnancy, I gave up on trying to bend down to put on my shoes, so I just went barefoot. JUST KIDDING, I wore flip-flops people. Good thing it was summa-time!
Hopefully when Kate gets a little older she'll get a hoot out of seeing where she "kicked it" for nine months.
