I am fairly certain that the vast majority of women, regardless of how well their pregnancy has gone, would agree that the last few weeks are the hardest.
The uncomfotables have officially set in, perhaps the nightime insomnia, walking has become something more similar to waddling, and the trips to the bathroom to pee have reached what can only be concluded as a ridiculous level. Couple that with the anticipation of labor to come, meeting your new little love and knowing that one of your lifes most major events is about to happen...it all makes for a bit of anxiousness these last weeks.
Or at least for me it does.
And don't get me wrong, I've been truly blessed in both my pregnancies that they have gone so smoothly, that I've felt so healthy throughout and that there haven't, thus far, been any big complications. But even still, I'm on the home stretch here...and I'm ready.
That's why it has been so nice that we've had so many fun fall activities to fill our time with this past month. Not only to embrace the season and the what it has to offer, but also to help this mama keep her mind on something other than the feet that keep kicking her ribs.
We had our now annual tradition of gathering at the pumpkin patch/petting zoo with our dear PEPS friends. And Grammie was even here to join us! Thankfully the weather held off and made for a perfect morning adventure.
Charlotte was much more adventurous in petting the goats this year than last.
The mama's and their babes...ever the challenging pic to capture!
Our growing littles...
We also got to spend a delicious afternoon with our best buds Emma and Avery decorating Halloween cookies.
When I grow up I want to have Avery's gorgeous locks!
Amazingly Charlotte I think didn't realize that it was actually cookies she was painting the frosting on and didn't eat one throughout the entire process. Quite a feat for our little sweet tooth girl. (not to worry, cookies were most definitely consumed after the project was complete!)
Happy weekend everyone! Here's to some cozy football and grilled cheese afternoons, Halloween gatherings...and a bit more waiting.
