I'm a little confused as to what month is REALLY is, cause as I sit here typing this after wrapping up editing and posting teasers from this adorable kiddo's 3 month session this morning, I hear the AC kick on and glance at my watch to see that it is 84 degrees out! WHAT.THE.HECK. It's almost November! This cannot possible be October!
Ahhhhh, but alas, it is...and we've been trying to take advantage all week of this unseasonably warm weather for however long it lasts!
Mike has been working CRAZY hours lately -- a lot of 12+ hour days that start at 6 or 7pm and go until 7 or 8am the next morning! They are short people in his unit so he's getting a lot of overtime, which is good $$, but boy, he's gotta be pooped. And we miss having him at home! He's off a few days this coming week which'll be super nice to have him home all day and night.
This.chick. OMG, it is so hard for me to put into words a good way to describe her other than pure diva. And sass. And allllll girl. I love her so much and her personality is unmatched -- she knows what she wants and when she wants it. And when she doesn't get her way, WATCH OUT. But gosh, she's so funny and so animated and is just at such a fun stage. Plus her hair seems to be getting curlier and curlier (maybe cause it's still so freaking hot in October!) and I know I'm biased but she's just so damn cute. I could just eat her! And if #3 is another girl I know those two will just kill meeeee (probably in more ways than one, and not always the good way! haha!) in the coming years. Watch out Alex!
Yesterday I spent the day volunteering at TinySuperheroes' new world headquarters with some of my UA co-workers! It was so great to help my buddy Robyn out a bit and be able to catch up too. We are continuing our year 3 tradition of trick-or-treating with them on Monday and I cannot wait! Stay tuned for that fun little post :)
We've been having a lot of solo time with me + the burritos lately with Mike gone and/or sleeping, so it's been fun to hit up different parks, Chick-fil-a with their cousin Lizzy, play with Scooter (who Patrick loves to have his picture taken with lately!) and sneak candy before bedtime. I remember feeling this way (tired!! so tired!!) with Patrick and questioning how I'd handle 2 kids feeling like this, but I have to keep reminding myself (as I did 2 years ago!) that although we're adding another kiddo I won't be pregnant anymore when we do, which shockingly brings back a lot of my energy (or at least it did last time!). So trying to put the tired feeling out of my mind and focus on enjoying the moment.
Mike and his parents took the kids trick-or-treating in downtown Kirkwood late last week (I couldn't go, boo hiss, I had conferences!) and they had a blast. Rosie was a witch and Patrick was a ghost. They even ran into our friends Sarah and Adam and their daughter Daisy too! Daisy and Rosie are both going to be big sisters at the same time next year -- Sarah is due with #2 and me with #3 only 3 days apart from each other! How fun is that?!!
I got a new flash hood for my camera's off-camera-flash and was playing around with it the other night with the kiddos so here are just a few random (albeit totally adorable, in my totally biased opinion) snaps from me playing with that!
And this is probably one of my favorite memes to date! BAHAHAHAHA! Their faces SLAY me. Total RB face in full force!
This morning before my photo shoot we headed out to a car show where my aunt Kate had her Mustang that was a benefit for Officer Snyder who was killed earlier this month. The kids, Mike, and I all had a blast! I even put Ro in my Tula (since goodbye placenta previa I can now carry and wear her again without any worries! woot!) and it was no problem carrying that extra 30lbs around at 25.5 weeks pregnant! Yay!
Patrick loved seeing all of the cars (although KiKi's mustang was his fave!) and all of the people there. We didn't stay too long before I had to run to my shoot and Mike went to sleep.
Anyways, that's about all I've got for this random hodge podge end of October but feels like August post! Have a great rest of your weekend friends!
