picking pumpkins

well it's finally starting to feel like fall here in Houston, TX.  took long enough ;) and even though it's that awkward fall weather where you can wear sweaters for the beginning of the day and then need to change into a t-shirt & shorts come 12:00pm, I don't mind.  hey at least it's below 85 outside!
in honor of the "cooler"'weather i took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch and let them both pick out there own little pumpkin.  now these kids are obsessed with pumpkins so seeing their faces light up at the sight of it all was adorable and so special!

 also, how cute are their little outfits?! these are from a small Etsy shop that's run by a fabulous mama who we met through our local Hike it Baby group.  she is so talented and these clothes are seriously so soft & comfy feeling!  be sure to check out her shop Little Wild Sprouts   and you can also use code: KLING4LWS1 for a 15% discount on your order! :)

I just love that in the end, Peter picked a bigger pumpkin than Zo...  she didn't want to have to carry anything that was heavier than the teeny tiny one she chose.  Meanwhile, Peter wanted a bigger one but finally accepted defeat after failing to lift the monster size ones and went with one that was small but still bigger than his sister's. 

happy fall y'all!  baby sister is coming on the 31st so this might be our last little post for a while!  wishing you all a wonderful rest of your week and happy Halloween!

Helllooo 35 weeks!

  well, it only took until the middle of the night when i was rocking PB back to sleep and started having mildly painful contractions for me to realize that this baby is coming.  and she's coming soon.  that's when it hit me, we literally have nothing prepared...  i don't know if it's a third kid thing or what but i just haven't even thought about all the stuff that needs to be brought out, washed, packed, bought, etc.   well until last night.  and that's when i started freaking out a bit and making a mental list of things to do before she arrives.  so i told myself I would at least spend a couple hours going through baby clothes after the kids went to bed tonight annnnddd yet i somehow managed to never get around to it. instead i ate ice cream out of the carton and lounged on the couch... sorry baby, you're gonna be living in the hospital onesies your entire infant life ;)

i did have an ultrasound last week to check her growth and just as i suspected, she's measuring right on schedule!  as if she'd be tiny considering how uncomfortable i'm feeling these days ;) unfortunately there goes my excuse to pig out on unhealthy food, sigh.  but i do have to say that the highlight of my appointment was Zo pointing at the pictures of female anatomy in the patients room and declaring "mommy!  that's the biggest volcano ever!" umm yes.. yes it is.  seriously, toddlers say the funniest & most embarrassing things.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
