Lately...

9/21/15

I've been meaning to get this post written and up for a week now, if that gives you any indication of how things have been.
Without further ado, here's a little snippit of whats been going on around here lately.


Moving. You might call me crazy but right after our little lady is born (I'm talking weeks) we are moving across the country. The timing is a little insane, and I wish we were able to move before Belle is born, but things just didn't work out that way. We are REALLY excited to be moving back to Oregon though, and I think Bend will be the perfect place to raise our littles. I'm looking forward to a cold winter and for Jacob to see snow! We've started the process of packing up the house, and I'm hoping to have my part of it done before the baby arrives. Pulling out baby gear while packing away everything else has been a little insane, but I know we will all be so thankful once we are on our merry way to Oregon!


Halloween in September. I am ready for Halloween y'all. About a week ago Jake was out of town so Jacob and I busted out all the Halloween decor and decorated the house. I love holidays, especially now with little ones. Jacob definitely understands more this year, which makes me determined to make sure he doesn't miss out on anything! Annabelle is due on the 11th, so I think part of me is in the mood to celebrate Halloween early because I'm worried that with all of the craziness of a newborn AND moving I might not get to enjoy everything I want to with Jacob. I also feel like it's a bit of misplaced nesting energy. Who knows, but if you follow my Instagram feed you've definitely seen some of our "Halloween in September" festivities.


Hobbies. I have wanted to learn how to sew for a while, and in August I finally took the plunge and got myself a sewing machine for my birthday. I LOVE IT. So far I've only been sewing things for Annabelle, and this past weekend I had to finish up all of my projects in preparation for both her arrival and the move.

Pregnancy. This pregnancy has definitely been different than my first. I'm not sleeping well and I have way more aches and pains. Some days it's really bad. BUT I'm also moving around more and staying pretty limber. At 37 weeks I'm still crawling around on the floor and bending down to pick things up without a problem. I think I have my toddler to thank for that. We are all set for Annabelle to arrive! Since we are moving at the beginning of November, the sooner she gets here the better. At my doctor appointment last week I found out that I'm 3 cm dilated, which I know doesn't really mean anything, but a girl can dream right?

That's what we've been up to around here lately, I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Sincerely,
Nicole
