If you think November is too early to talk about Christmas, you’ve come to the wrong blog. I’ve held in my excitement for oh, about 3 weeks now and I just can’t take it any more. Thank goodness for Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. That last sentence basically sums up my day yesterday and I’m not upset about it. Percy and I will be listening to Christmas music on our walk this morning and probably each day from now until Christmas! #notsorry
I’ll stop talking about Christmas now.
Life lately has been…a lot of things. It’s kind of hard to sum up your life when you are pregnant. I go through almost every emotion, feeling, and just general state of being every day at least, if not multiple times per day.
I snapped this photo when we were carving our pregnancy announcement pumpkins last week! My pup, pumpkins waiting to be carved, and The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown – the best kind of fall night!
This cookie? I thought I wanted it. Turns out, I used it for this Instagram picture then wanted nothing to do with it so it got stale in my car and I threw it away. #pregnancyproblems My husband is going to kill me if he reads this because those cookies are his favorite. Sorry, babe!
Ahh, a pregnant Halloween. After waiting around all day (trying not to eat all the candy) we made some yummy food, settled in with A Haunting in Connecticut, and were promptly interrupted by our dog barking his head off every five minutes at the trick-or-treaters! Subdivision life. But really we love seeing all the kids! Plus, several of our favorite little ones stopped by to see us including our Godson – aka the cutest koala bear in all of the land. He was really into photos at this point in the evening, obviously.
One more thing worth mentioning here…I was asleep at 7:30 PM on Halloween. Blame it on the baby, blame it on the fact I was up until almost 1 AM the night before for work, blame it on the fact that I wake up basically every hour during the night because I’m so uncomfortable. Whatever it was I was not upset about it – I’m really trying to listen to my body right now! It’s not just me to think about any more
Whoops, I’m going to talk about Christmas again! If you follow me on Snapchat (rachelemily_49) you already know that I am over enthusiastic (<— just spelled that right on the first try!) about the red cups at Starbucks. No desire for a skinny vanilla latte yet but my caramel apple spice did not disappoint!
Thank you so much to those of you who may have commented on my Instagram photo last night! Any mommas reading this now, go check it out if you have an opinion (or need advice!) on the Bump Nest/Snoogle/body pillow while pregnant debate.
My weeks 9-12 updates will be up tomorrow morning! Like, for real. It’s already scheduled
