October Updates

October is flying by! Can't believe it's almost Halloween and then November. Chloe is so excited for trick or treating and Thanksgiving. She keeps talking about the big turkey we are going to eat! The holidays are going to be so much fun with her this year. 
We had fun at the Pumpkin festival this past weekend. My future sister in law invited us and Chloe had the best time seeing everything and of course enjoying the food. 
We've been trying to enjoy the beautiful fall weather with some park trips before it gets too cold.
Chloe is absolutely loving school. I knew she wouldn't have any trouble since she has always done well at the Y and church, but she really loves it. On Saturday mornings she'll ask to go, and the other day I had trouble getting her in the car after because she didn't want to leave! She runs into her classroom every morning. This is her class on show and tell day, of course she picked her baby doll to bring in. 
I love hearing all the fun things she is learning, especially the songs. Preschool is the best thing we've done in a long time. I'm not gonna lie, I love the "free time" for me too!! 

So bring on November, can't wait!

pumpkin patch 2015

This past Saturday we headed out to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkins for our front porch. We've gone every year, but this year was the best, as Chloe could really get into it and tried to find the perfect one. We took a hayride out to the patch first. 
And of course a hayride back! Can't believe next year we will have a 9 month old with us!

Apple Picking!

This past Sunday we headed up to Carter's Mountain to go apple picking. This used to be one of my favorite fall things to do but the last few years I've been extremely pregnant or too far away with living in NC, that it just didn't happen.  So happy we got to go this year. 
Of course we ate first. Their apple cider donuts are amazing, brought a bunch back too! Then it was off to the hayride before picking some apples. 
I think one of Chloe's favorite parts was eating the apples, lol. 
Snapped a quick shot of my almost 25 week baby bump before leaving. Such a fun afternoon on a beautiful day!

24 week update!

How Far Along: 24 weeks, where is the time going?

Size of Baby: Baby is the size of a cantaloupe, about 11 inches long. 

Weight Gain: 10 pounds altogether. At my apt this morning I gained almost 5 pounds in a month, yikes!

Maternity Clothes: Yup!

Gender: Boy! It's been so fun since finding out, picking out boy things for the nursery and clothes. 

Movement: Lots! I feel like he is moving more than Chloe did. My glucose test was this morning, after drinking that sugary drink she could barely find the heartbeat he was moving so much. 

Sleep: Okay. Mostly just takes awhile to get comfortable, and getting up to pee all the time. 

Symptoms: Just tired, and my back hurts sometimes. I find it's getting harder to keep up with Chloe too.

Food Cravings: Coffee! I find myself drinking decaf sometimes, which I never did before. 

What I Miss: More caffeine!

Best Moment This Week: Enjoying fall. I love the cooler temps, although the rain hasn't been the best. But seeing all the pumpkins and fun fall things, I love this time of year.

At my little brother, Drew's, engagement party Saturday night.
