Instagram Challenge: 25 Summer Baby Photos

Last week, we asked you to upload your favorite summer baby pictures to Instagram using the hashtag #thebump. We received tons of adorable submissions—pictures of your babies at the pool, on the beach, decked out for the Fourth of July, and more. Here are 25 of our favorite photos from the challenge (stay tuned — we'll have another one soon!).

Don't forget to follow The Bump on Instagram (username: @thebump).
