It’s been about 2 weeks since my last post and I want to do a little catching up with you.
1. Baby #3 is….
A beautiful, healthy baby GIRL! That makes 3 in a row for us and we couldn’t be happier. We believe and trust 100% that God has designed this child to be a perfect fit in our family. I’ll admit though that there was a small part of me that desired a son but the minute we saw our precious baby up on the screen during the ultrasound, saw the arms waving, the body stretching, watched the heart beating, it didn’t matter what gender the baby was. All that mattered was that the perfect little human being was ours!
We’re pretty excited that we really don’t have anything to buy for this baby. We’re definitely set on clothes and girly things 😛
2. Fall is *almost* here…
I don’t know where you live but here in NC we’ve had some absolutely BEAUTIFUL weather lately. The temperature has cooled down, the wind has picked up, and just this morning we looked out the window to see a few leaves that had fallen in the front yard. This is probably my favorite season of the year (besides Christmastime) so we’re being intentional about filling up our family time with fun fall activities. This past Saturday, we took the girls apple picking in the NC mountains. We had a BLAST!
We went to the cutest orchard that was very family friendly! They had Upick apples and pumpkins, apple cannons where you could shoot apples at targets, wagon rides, a huge picnic area, local BBQ, and an Apple House where they made their own apple cider doughnuts & slushies. We can’t wait to go back next year and make this a new family tradition!
I’m so glad we got to go and that we were supporting a local, family-owned business. Everyone was SO nice and helpful!!
What are your favorite Fall Family traditions?
I think that’s all the catching up that I have time for today. I’ve got some fun things I want to post about soon like creating my capsule maternity wardrobe and the impact the War Room movie made on our lives. Be on the lookout readers!
