Pumpkins, Sweaters and Bumps

I've been going for a lot of walks in my neighborhood and I've noticed almost every single one of my neighbors has some sort of festive fall decor on their porch. I put up my fall wreath but that didn't feel like enough so on Sunday Scott went with me to the pumpkin patch and we grabbed a few pumpkins to set beside our front door. It's pretty simple but I think it turned out cute and now I don't feel like such a autumn scrooge around here.
It was so nice and cool over the weekend and that made me happy happy happy. Cold weather means it's sweater time for my little girls!! I got them out for the first time this year and it made me so happy because they look SOOO cute! I know it's a touch ridiculous but I can't help myself. It's so fun.
I promise that this won't turn into a blog where all I can talk about is being pregnant but I want to document as much as I can so I can look back and remember. I've already forgotten some things that have happened over the last few months and I'm annoyed at myself for not writing it down somewhere.
I woke up yesterday and my pooch magically turned into a bump! Scott and I were so surprised. My Mom drove up yesterday to pick up Grace and stay for a night. The last time I saw her, 2 weeks ago, there was not even a little bit of anything there. The first thing Mom said when she saw me was "Woah! You have a bump!!"
I wake up in the morning with a still semi flat stomach but the second I put a bite of food in my mouth my stomach gets so big. Especially yesterday. So crazy!
See what's in my photo with me? It's my best friend, McAlisters tea. As of a week and a half ago we've been reunited again. I didn't realize how much I loved that tea (or how much of it I drank) until I had to give it up for a few months. I missed it so bad. Some people drink caffeine all through pregnancy and you're "technically" allowed a small amount of it a day but it scared me so I didn't have a drop. Now that I'm in my 2nd trimester my tea and I are back to being BFF's except not like it was before. I allow myself maybe 2 a week and that's it. It makes me happy!
