Baby, Baby, Baby...
Oh, the obvious one. It's hard not to think about it when my walk has turned into a waddle, and everywhere I go (from HEB, the mall, church) my growing belly becomes the topic of conversation. For so long, I've thought "there's plenty of time for that". Now I'm feeling crunch time and it seriously stresses me out. For one, I don't know why I thought registering for a baby would be easier than registering for a wedding. It was much more stressful, because as a first time parent, you have no clue what you'll really need or what the kid will like. My OCD personality is coming out in full force. I want to have everything under control and it's so hard to accept the fact that there's no way we can know everything about babies and raising one until she gets here.
Jon's new job assignment
In Chicago, Jon was on the Operations side of things for awhile and did sales for a year before we were transferred to Houston. He loved sales, but went back into Operations when we moved to Houston. Recently, he got the opportunity to move back into sales and jumped on it! He really feels like it's his gift and could not be more excited about it. He officially made the switch on October 1st. Maybe I'm biased, but I think he'll do a pretty sweet job at it, too! I feel like I can say this with some authority since we work at the same place and I see all this first hand. :)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fall!!!! It's my favorite time of year...the weather cooling off, leaves changing, fall decor, pumpkins, you name it. I have fall decor all over the house and light a pumpkin spice candle every night. I bought some pumpkin puree at the store and plan on making pumpkin bread this week.
My poor, neglected dog child has not been mentioned in this blog for way too long! She has enjoyed having her Uncle Ben live with us. When he leaves she sits by the front door and cries. Seriously, it's ridiculous....and I thought I spoiled her! Since she is the most adorable Maltese alive, here are some recent pics of her silliness:
