Fall is finally here and we are waiting with bated breath for Baby Morgan’s arrival. We have two weeks until due date and most of our preparations are complete. 🙂
I am glad to say we did some of the things on our fall bucket list! We made it to the pumpkin patch, apple picking, the cider mill, the aquarium, the playground, and have spent a lot of time together before baby’s entrance into the family. We even took Jack to see his first movie; Planes.
We had a beautiful maternity session with Jessica Boyd, http://www.j-marie-photography.net/. We are so blessed she captured our family together. We will cherish these images forever. Be sure to check out her website. 🙂
We have crossed many things off our to-do list as well. Our bags are packed and ready to go when the time comes. Jack’s day bag is packed as well. He also has a little gift waiting from the baby.
The baby’s stuff is completely organized and ready for baby to come home to. It was a lot of fun going through the baby’s stuff after our baby shower and going through Jack’s baby stuff as well. It brought back many memories and who doesn’t love all of those cute little outfits, toys, and books? 🙂
Overall, we have been enjoying the fall weather and taking full advantage of the beautiful days. We have spent a lot of time outdoors at the playground and have also spent some quiet time indoors. We have been napping, cleaning, cooking, and waiting for baby to join us. The laundry is caught up, the dishes are done, and the beds are always made but most importantly, we are spending time together as a family.
It certainly is a strange feeling knowing that Jack’s days as an only child are coming to a close. It is hard to believe anytime now we will have a brand new baby to love and care for in our home. I am nervous and excited for the journey to begin. Each morning I hug and kiss Jack and realize he is no longer a baby, but a little boy and a soon to be big brother. He will make a great big brother. Each night I kiss his beautiful face and know while this chapter is closing, a brand new chapter full of promise and love will soon begin.
Let the journey begin!
Many Blessings & Lots of Love,
The Joyful Homemaker
