Going apple picking is one of our annual family traditions we do. Caleb and I started going before we had kids and I always hoped it would be something we would do with our children year after year. This is the second year we've gone with Kai and it was so much fun. He ran around the orchard, picked the cutest little baby apple, and ate a bunch of apple slices! Apples might be his new favorite snack! He also said "apple" for the first time after we got home that day. It was the perfect "fall" day activity...except it didn't feel like fall.
We've been stuck in this in between fall and summer where sometimes it's cool and you can throw on a sweater but then all of a sudden it's humid and you're sweating. Finding things to wear right now has been...difficult to say the least, ha! This is my second pregnancy and I'm still against buying maternity clothes. They're so expensive and if I'm going to invest a decent amount of money in to my closet, I want to be able to wear it year after year. Well this dress that I got off of Amazon is checking all the boxes for me lately. It was such a good price, it's beautiful and comfy, and it's cool enough for this in between weather we're having. What's funny about this dress though, is it's actually not the one I ordered! If you follow the link I have above, it'll take you to the dress I ordered. Which is super cute...and I still want that one! For whatever reason though, Amazon sent me this one. It was backordered when I originally bought it and then this one showed up. I didn't even realize it until I went to link it for you all just now. I looked high and low for the exact link to the one I'm wearing but I sadly couldn't track it down. The one I linked (and thought I bought) is very similar though and I'm sure just as comfy! It's not maternity but it fits my bump perfectly and I'm so excited to pull it out again all next summer/early fall. It has an elastic waist and no zippers, so it's comfy for a bump or not!
Kai has been living in these Target t-shirts. They're so easy to wash and they're super inexpensive. He's really comfortable in them and they go with everything. We've gotten a lot of rain in the last week, so I put him in his Hunter boots just in case the orchard was muddy. They're so easy to slip on him and let's be honest...he looks so dang cute in them! He'll be wearing these all fall long and probably for the first couple of snow falls, too.

Hooray for finally being 30 weeks pregnant and in my third trimester! The bump has officially started coming out of my t-shirt that I've been taking my bump photos in. I'm way bigger this time around but that's ok because I'm so grateful to be carrying this healthy little boy in there.
Pop...oh gosh it's terrible, friends! I'm so sick of drinking water and all I want all day long is pop. I crave the carbonation so badly. That's really the only consistent thing right now though. Food hasn't really been a pattern lately and I'm just trying to eat a variety of things that are good for me. My top choices are salmon and sweet potatoes.
The Not So Fun Stuff
I'm starting to get so tired again. My "2nd trimester bliss" didn't last too long this time around and I've started to get uncomfortable. Sleeping has started getting harder plus chasing Kai around all day is pretty exhausting with my big belly.
The FUN Stuff
The baby kicks have started to be more rolling across my belly kicks now. I love watching him every night just moving around in there. I can already tell he's going to be a wild, playful little guy. It's been such a fun journey to see my belly get bigger and see Kai be excited for it. He always points to my belly and says "baby!" He loves to give my belly raspberries, too. It makes me laugh so hard. We finished the nursery, too and it looks so good! I can't wait to share it with you guys. Kai loves to run in there and point at the crib and say "baby!" I think he's getting excited for his little baby brother and it makes my heart burst to think about him as a big brother.
The Medical Stuff
I got my TDAP shot this time around at the doctor so the baby will be all set when he's born. We also have another ultrasound scheduled in 3 weeks to see if my placenta moved. I didn't get a third trimester ultrasound during my first pregnancy, so I'm grateful we get to see our little guy again before he's born. My doctor has ensured me that 99% of the time the placenta usually does move, but the only way to tell is with an ultrasound. I haven't had any spotting, which is a really positive sign that it moved. The baby has also already turned head down! He turned about 2 weeks ago. I had a couple of painful/high movement days from him and I just knew he was turning head down. Hopefully he stays put now so we'll be good to go in 10 weeks!
