the calm before the storm

October is more then half over already. I'm not ready for winter, but its impending arrival is looming ever closer. How do these months seem to go faster and faster each one? I entered the 3rd trimester this weekend, and I know that slide speeds up quickly towards the end (its already gone so fast!).

Today, and the rest of the week, it is cooled off a lot. Highs in the upper 50s/low 60s, but this weekend we had some upper 60s to enjoy. There was a church fair going on nearby, and while they didn't have a lot going on, they did have a horse to ride, which Gwen LOVED.

She looked so big sitting up there!

They also had pumpkins, so my girl was pretty much the happiest.

The rest of the weekend was low-key. Grocery shopping, laundry, and a visit from a girlfriend who picked up some baby stuff we were giving her. I finally switched out the carseat in my car, which Gwen had outgrown, for a bigger 5-point booster. The cupholders make her happy.  :-)

I know I just said it above, but I'm going to say it again... I can't believe I'm already in the 3rd trimester! This pregnancy is going so quickly!

I swear January will be here before I know it, and it will be time to birth a baby!  ::gulp::

Honestly, its feeling a bit like the calm before the storm around here with the weather turning colder, and between my entering the final trimester, plus our biggest event of the year and all the holidays that quickly follow looming ever closer.

It was a beautiful weekend, and honestly, its been a beautiful October already. There have been frustrations (work, house hunting, etc.), but there have been so many lovely, relaxed days this month, I'm just going to suck them all up while they last.

How is your October shaping up?
