Busy, busy, busy! I can’t believe it is the end of August. WHERE DID SUMMER GO? I am praying for another Indian summer like we had last fall. Last fall was amazing, it was nice until November. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will happen again. I LOVE fall and wish it would last longer than 1 or 2 months. Winter needs to not be so greedy and give some of its time to fall. Any who, this last week we have been working on the basement and cleaning up around the house. We had a friend’s wedding, which was absolutely beautiful. I am not much of partier these days and get tired at like 9:30, but Trav and I made it till the end of the reception and had a great time.
Saturday we met some of my family to go out to eat and then Trav took Kenna on a date. Kenna was so sad that Travis had to go back to work, so Trav took her out to spend some one on one time with her. It is really hard to give her a lot of attention with Emmy around because Emmy is at that age where you need to be watching her all the time. In addition, Emmy likes attention and has an attention seeking personality, where Kenna is pretty chill. Kenna loved her date and was so excited to tell me all about it when she got back. There is nothing better than a daddy daughter relationship.
Sunday we went to church and then ran errands and got Travis ready to go back to school.
On the baby side of things all is well. I feel the most pregnant out of all of my pregnancies. I have all the typical pregnancy symptoms: sore back, it’s hard to get comfortable, tired, emotional, feel like my belly is really stretching, indigestion, heart burn. I feel like I am a poster child for pregnancy symptoms at 8 months lol. I am thankful that the baby and I are healthy and doing great.
For the wedding I got this super cute comfortable dress from Pinkblush Maternity. I never buy myself maternity clothes, but it was on sale and had free shipping at the time. I really enjoy getting cute clothes in the mail. I might need to order something else to get me through these last 8 weeks;). I also may need to try stitchfix after this baby comes. I don’t know how well shopping is going to go with three little ones. Anyone love or hate stitchfix? Is it worth trying?
