We are on the countdown now..... 25 days until Tess arrives!

Makgill came over to play 1 afternoon and both boys wanted pics with Baby Tess! (Mak took the picture of Tal and I and Tal took the picture of Mak and I- pretty impressive for a 4 and 3 yr old!)

I had my 35 week check-up this past Tuesday and am measursing right on target. I am having some braxton hicks contractions but have found that if I stay hydrated they don't seem to appear as much. Tallon and I have been staying busy- I am trying to enjoy these last few days of just he and I so we have been going to storytime at the library and spending some beautiful Fall days at the park and outside in our yard. I had to go to a mandatory 30 min inservice at work this past Thursday so I carried him ( and a snack) with me and after my inservice- we headed down to the nursery. Tallon's face lit up- we talked about Mommy coming to the hospital and Baby Tess coming to the nursery and the Dr checking her out. He has since asked me atleast once a day if we are going to the "hopsicle" ( hospital- pronouced like popsicle except with the Ha) to get Baby Tess today. and He also has been frequently asking me if Tess is done growing and can come out. He has been very verbal for awhile now, but Reeves and I are constantly chuckling at comments Tallon makes and how much he really does seem to understand all that is going on.

so.... the date is set..... December 3rd! Right now, the section will be at 12:30 but I am still hoping that we might can get it moved up to 7:30 ( we will see!) The nursery is almost finished and I have been laundering and folding all of these tiny, sweet pink dresses! Hopefully, we will get some items up on the wall this weekend!

Now for some pictures of the past few weeks:

We headed over to help celebrate 1 of Tallon's favorite classmates- Cooper's birthday- complete with a petting zoo- sooo fun!

Tallon LOVES to be outdoors ( which is going to make things very interesting with a new baby and winter coming soon!) He has also recently gotten into taking bike rides with his daddy! Uncle Collin has a bike trailer and Reeves has been AWESOME at taking Tallon for bike rides on the weekends so I can take several naps!!!!
More pics with 1 of Tal's favorite people- Makgill! These boys have soo much fun together!
We have a GREAT climbing tree in our front yard!
and... our new dining room set!! Someone from church was selling theirs and so we got a great deal on a practically new set!! I can't wait to use it more! ( unfortunately, the dining room table ( much to Reeves' dismay) has become my new sewing area! My mom is letting me use her old machine and I have really enjoyed making several dolls and a diaper bag!! ( I will post pics soon!)

Why is Tallon looking SO GROWN to me in that tee shirt and jeans? That's what he was wearing when he came over Sat, and I promise it looked like he had grown 5 inches! Something about that outfit...

My sweet niece wil be here SOOOO SOON!!! I love her so much and I can't wait to get my hands on her!

Oh, and thanks again for letting Mak come play the other day! I LOVE the pics of our boys!

Your dining room is beautiful! I want to see the diaper bag you made! If it's as cute as the doll you made you might consider opening an Etsy shop and I might want to place an order :) My sister said that she'd like to have some pillows made out of the fabric you used on the doll.
