Well folks, it's begun. I bought a crib and baby clothes. The first actual baby things I've bought during this pregnancy. Our nursery room is cleared out (it used to full of stuff in storage), and it's a blank slate! It's super bizarre to think that a real live baby will be in there by Christmas. A fact that I'm pretty positive won't sink in until I've pushed it out and am holding it in my arms.
Little yellow leaves have started falling and it's been interesting to think about how my trimesters have synced up with the changing seasons. I've been enjoying the shift in season, and I'm so looking forward to having a "real" winter this year, complete with snow (don't let me down, Anchorage!). I'm usually holding on to summer for as long as I can, but there's something about this year that has me craving the crisp, chilly days of fall and winter, and I'm not even a PSL person!
