Pumpkin Patch 2014

Every year for as long as I can remember my family has gone to the same pumpkin patch. We always take photos in this big pumpkin they have set up. It is so much fun to look back on photos as my sister and I have grown up and seeing how much we have changed over the course of the last year. This weekend we made our annual trip and decided to bring our dogs along for some of the fun. Niah wasn't so sure about having her picture taken, she is cracking me up in these photos.
I'm so excited to continue this tradition with our family and to come back next year with our sweet little baby.

Couples Baby Shower

This weekend Todd's parents hosted a baby shower for our sweet little one. Most baby showers are centered around the mom and baby, which is fine, but dad is just as important in the baby's life as the momma is. So, in order to include Todd in the baby shower fun, his parents decided to host a couples shower. It was so much fun!

We didn't play tons of games, but the ones we did play were great, and centered around both parents and baby.
The first game was a guessing game. They had 7 photos of me and 7 photos of Todd from our childhood (ranging in age from infant to high school). Everyone had to guess how old we were in each of the photos. It was fun seeing which photos our parents picked out for us and guessing about who our baby will most closely resemble.
The second game was a "Meet the Parents" game. It was a multiple choice and had questions about each of us as kids, our relationship and our little one. Such a fun game and perfect for a couples shower.
We were having so much fun we didn't take photos until almost everyone had left! Check out this fruit bowl that Todd's sister and our niece put together.
Todd's sister is due with their third child in just a few weeks. I am so excited for our little ones to be so close in age. I'm sure they will be the best of friends!

Sweet baby, you are so loved and we can't wait to meet you in just a couple more months!
