Fall is coming...

And that means, so are you.

Normally, this time of the year brings me great joy. I get to order my beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte for the first time, it starts getting darker a little earlier, the leaves begin to turn. But now, all of those feelings of excitement are framed by a complete and total joy that this means that I am closer and closer to holding you. Joy, anxiety, and complete and utter amazement. I'm already 6 months pregnant. This has went by so quickly... and it hasn't been nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I feel great; my only minor annoyance is  heartburn, which I'm just hoping means that you got your dad's hair genes. I'll suffer through some minor discomfort right now if it means that I'll get to do a mini-combover on you when you're a week old.

We bought some string lights to hang around the brick wall where the TV sits, and it made me so, so happy. We lit a fall-y candle and plugged in the lights, and I was instantly transported to my happy place. I just imagined holding a newborn, in the dim glow of a million little Christmas lights in our living room on an upcoming December evening (because in Jesus' name, you WILL be coming on or before your due date), and it just felt right.
