So back in 2017 when I was pregnant, Jordan and I were trying to figure out a clever way to document my growing belly that didn’t involve me standing in front of a mirror taking pictures of myself. We are big Saturday Night Live fans and have been for our whole lives, and (just to make him laugh) I always do this stupid, extremely goofy and uncoordinated dance during the opening credits of the show.
Inspiration struck when I got up to do the dance the first time after finding out we were expecting - this would be our documentation! Though there’s a huge gap in the middle where SNL took their summer break between seasons 42 and 43, I absolutely love the end of this video where you can really see how big I got week to week. Make sure you watch until the end…there’s a special surprise.
Have been waiting to share this for months and SNL’s season premiere this weekend felt like the perfect time. Hope it brings a smile (or maybe a wince at my dancing - that’d be understandable, too) to your face!
Welcome back, SNL! Thanks for being a part of our lives.
