sweet orange

my baby is approximately the size of an orange. i am 14 weeks in. by next week baby will have grown to small grapefruit proportions. i am feeling good more often than bad these days. when i posted my first belly photo while pregnant with harper someone commented that i was quite big and rivaled her 10 week belly which had contained twins. i think i am bigger this time around. however there is only one heartbeat to be heard in this womb- one big, strong heartbeat pulsing through a tiny citrus body. and that is a joyous sound, for sure!

yesterday was, today is

yesterday was a play day at the discovery center with the whole family, silly disguises, illuminated pumpkins, trick or treats with good friends, sleepy kids and very sweet (literally!) dreams to end the festivities.

today is sorting and sharing gobs of treats, roasting pumpkin seeds, drinking tea and cocoa, watching halloween movies one more time before they are packed away for next year, welcoming november and thinking about the celebrations to come.

happy sunday, friends!
