I am making a bad habit of not posting these when I am suppose too. At least I get them up sometime. I hope you all got a chance to read the “Talk is Cheap” post last week. I really appreciated everyones sweet comments and personal emails you sent after that. Well this weekend was really no exception. We ended up packing up and leaving our place at 9:30 on friday night to drive out to central Mass. We stayed up visiting with my parents till almost 2am. Then fell asleep got up at 7:30 and headed to the Cape for the day. It was exactly what I described before, in the element, music up, wind in our hair, holding hands as we went off on another adventure. It was a great day. We laid on the beach, talked about the baby, and really enjoyed each others company. Yes, the baby is coming really soon but I am trying to not get all sad that, that means the end of just the 2 of us. I know the “2” of us will always be there. Now we will just have another awesome addition. Yesterday, was a very grey almost early fall like day. It made me so freakin’ excited. I LOVE FALL!! It is my favorite season. All day yesterday we were thinking of all the adventures we like to do in the fall and how amazing they will be to do this year with the baby in tow with us!! Ahh Apple picking, pumpkin patches, hayrides, fall hikes, Halloween, fall nights cuddled on the couch, I could go on and on. The thought of the 3 of us doing all this together makes me so happy I want to explode. haha that is a little dramatic but still it makes me so excited. We unpacked our new baby carrier the other day and Kev tried it on. I may or may not have put one of my childhood stuffed animals in it when he was wearing it to see what it would be like. haha. Our first thought was can we get the cat in there? Anyways, Kev looked so cute. I really can not wait for our little family adventures.
These pictures this week we took hanging out on the Cape.
Dear Baby Girl:
Mommy has been sharing a lot of pictures lately of Daddy and her and some of the things they have done over the last 4 years. I have been talking a lot about being adventurous and not letting life slow you down. I just wanted to say though that if you ever read those post not to mistake it for sadness that I thought it was coming to an end or that I was trying to force this new parenthood life into an old life that I didn’t want to let go of. That is not the case. I only get so excited about adventures with you because I want you to be able to experience so much. I want you to love life as much as we do. When you are grown, I want you to look back and think wow, what an amazing childhood I had. Daddy and me could not be more excited for you to come. We just want to share with you all the things we love in life. The thought of you experiencing something with us that means so much makes me get all teary. Its really easy to let life get you down. I don’t want that to be something you learn to let happen a lot. Yeah, everyone has bad days but there is always so much beautiful around to be grateful for and to enjoy. Even if its something small. I hope if there is one thing you learn from Mommy and Daddy it is to enjoy and love life. It is so short not to!
Lots of Love,
p.s. Yes, your Daddy is wearing a Tank Top and No, he is not trying to eat you in the first picture. lol.
I’d sure appreciate if you could help me get to #3 again. It just takes 2 clicks. Thanks so much!!!
where did you get that shirt?
It’s from Forever 21. I got it back in June.
Kev is probably one of the only people I know that can pull off wearing a Tank Top and look somewhat decent. 😉
Â« […] that means the end of just the 2 of us. I know the â€œ2â€³ of us will always be there. Now we will just have another awesome addition. Â». I wrote the (almost) exact same thing when I was pregnant with our son… So true!
Well, I just wanted to say that I enjoy reading your blog!
These posts are always so wonderful. Love that you had your time with family and your Cape adventure. I miss the Cape.
Ha, so funny. Cole and I would so try to put Wellie or Pip in a baby carrier.
Dear Jen, I’ve been quietly reading your blog for the past few months, and I thought I would at least be decent enough to leave a comment! I really, truly appreciate your sunny outlook on couplehood, marriage, pregnancy and family. It seems like every time I look around, somebody’s saying the same as you say they say to you in your last post “everything changes” or other little sayings whose meanings are basically negative. A lot of people out there have really negative attitudes about their children and it is really discouraging and frightening! I hope to God I never end up like that! You’re one of the very few people out there who is positive, hopeful, and thankful about your budding family and it’s an attitude I wish was more prevalent.
Congratulations and best of luck to you! I bet you’ll be an amazing mom.
I just love your blog! Thank you for sharing your pregnancy journey with us. I started reading your blog not long before I found out that I was pregnant so I especially love all your thoughts on pregnancy, fashion, and all the adorable baby stuff you’ve collected! I feel like I have so much further to go (I’m 16 weeks) and that time is going SO SLOW–each week feels like a month! But reading your baby posts each week reminds me to enjoy every minute and that there are so many more exciting milestones to come–not to mention each day with a beautiful new baby! You and your husband are the cutest and I wish you all the best!
Jen, you make such a beautiful pregnant woman. I’m so glad you’re sharing this part of your life with your blog readers, I love reading about it! I had e-mailed you last year when I was still living in Northampton, Mass but I recently moved to Nashville. I’m so glad I re-discovered your blog. It’s a new favorite of mine!
