October Thoughts

For the first time in a week I am able to have thoughts that do not relate to which nostril is actually capable of taking in oxygen, how do I sleep propped up enough so that my head doesn't clog up, but my back doesn't feel too much strain, and just exactly what medicine can you take while pregnant.  It's been a week. And now Nick has it too. Pretty bad when there are three containers of Amoxicillin floating around the kitchen. 

But like I said, today is better.

Today meant a trip to the Townsend House pumpkin patch! This is my favorite fall tradition because I always get the sweetest memories there. I wanted to post old pics from our first trip to the pumpkin patch, but they were stored on the laptop that got stolen : (   I put my favorite shots from today into a collage using FotoFlexer! I love the results! 

Also, from the encouragement of a few friends and family members, I am considering taking pics on the side. Really all I can do is take shots similar to what I put on here, but if you like them, let me know and I'd be glad to snap shots of you and yours. I want to get better and the only way to do that is to practice. I have a great lot for fall photos too!

 Ok, so Baby Girl needs a name and the topic of her name consumes what few brain cells I have left!  So I am asking for suggestions. Just suggestions. I'm not going to run a blog contest and hand out an award for the cutest name or anything like that. I'd like something vintage mixed with trendy. Doesn't have to end in the -er sound like my other two...that was pure coincidence.  So if you think of something cute, please post a comment! I really do value your ideas.

My mom is coming to "take care of her baby girl" tonight. She didn't really say those words, but in my mind that is what she plans to do! Chicken n dumplings is on the menu along with a new recipe I want to try from the GreenEgg cookbook: Cheesy grits with sausage. And then the Apple Cake with Browned Butter Frosting I found in Southern Living. Just call it calorie fest. Bon Apetite!
