halloween. this girl had a ball. she chased all the big kids screaming "run run run!" "treat! thank you! bye!" such great memories were created.
vincent turned 1! it seems like he was just born yesterday. val is an amazing mama and i am so lucky to call her one of my best friends.
 we went to jack creek farms for a little pumpkin adventure with our mommy and me friends. only 3 of us ended up making it but we had a blast. m picked the apples off the little tree, had apple cider, fed the little goats a cookie and did the haybale maze with Elsie. 

 we had a halloween play date with another group of mommies and babies. m insisted she wear my necklace the whole time. she is the cutest lady bug!
 m's class at preschool. so sweet.
 our new double stroller. we love it! m always wants to put her baby in the second seat and asks when d will be able to ride in it with her. she is going to be the best big sister. i really can't wait. 
 these two....they melt my heart. 
and our latest trip to target resulted in the purchase of a pink christmas tree for m's room. with special little ornaments and lights, too. she loves it.

boy hormones = b. i. t. c. h.

these baby boy hormones are making me a bitch. there is no other way to say it. no other way to state the obvious that i know everyone, especially my husband, is thinking.

im sitting here pinning, watching him sleep on the couch. and i want to scream and wake him up. or throw the toddler slipper sitting at my feet at him. but the toddler isn't awake which means that i have no one to blame. so the option is off the table. ugh. im ready for it to be february.

when i was pregnant with m, i was happy. happy hormones surging my veins 24/7. i wasn't weeping, i wasn't angry or short tempered. it was the sweet elation they tell you about. this time, not so much. don't get me wrong; i am happy most days. or until about 4:30 most days. that's when the toddler is hungry. that's when the boss is hungry. outside! dinna! outside! roosty bone! dinna! it's all i hear. and if it's sunday or a monday, i am the only one hearing it because its fantasy football. duh. it's monday. can you tell?

strangers are irritating.
my temper is short.
i cry.
a lot.
i have a billion things to do.
and feel like there is no help.
everyone's breath stinks.
except m's.
i don't want to be touched.

im ready for february to be here.

*i really love my husband. and i really love being pregnant. this one is just a whole new ballgame and challenging in all new ways. and i'm ready for february. did i mention that yet?
