Today is September 7. While fall doesn’t officially start until later this month, it seems like summer is gone. I love fall, so I am not complaining 🙂 Since I found out I was pregnant back in February, I knew our baby would be born in the fall. Fall seemed forever away then, and now it’s here. This means that soon our little boy will be here too. On Labor Day, we put together the crib. Even though we don’t have a crib mattress or bedding yet, seeing the crib makes the nursery actually feel like a nursery.
While John was in Europe recently, I also put together the stroller.
About a month ago, we had a little bit of a pregnancy scare which required an ultrasound. This allowed us the opportunity to see our baby’s face on a 3D ultrasound. We’ve seen his face once before, but at that time, he didn’t quite look like a baby. This time around, we were amazed at how much like a baby he looks! Thankfully the scare we had was a false alarm and everything is fine.
The summer has been good to us. My brother Trevor interned in DC this summer, and it was fun to have him close by. Before he returned back to BYU for his last semester of college, we headed to the Jefferson County Fair. I think we will make this a yearly tradition. We watched mutton busting, which was adorable and terrifying at the same time, and enjoyed seeing all the different animals. It was a true West Virginia experience.
Before I end this post, I want to give a shout out to Dollar Tree balloons. I got four balloons from the Dollar Tree as part of the decorations for John’s birthday. His birthday was over a month ago and this crazy balloon lasted until I finally decided to deflate it this past weekend. That was $1 well spent!
