wear. and thoughts of fall.

You guys, I am so anxious to have a newborn in our home!!! 
It is getting closer & closer! 
The sweet smell of a little one that just came out of the bath, all swaddled in a blanket and nuzzled up by your neck. It cannot hurry quick enough for me! 
We haven’t bought any baby items because we really have everything we need this time around. One of the perks of having so many little ones right in a row! We are sooooo ready and so excited for her to come. Could be just 7 or 8 more weeks if she follows in her siblings footsteps, we will see. 
And as much as I love going to the pool and playing in the sprinklers… as much I love the smell of sunscreen and homemade ice pops… I am suddenly itching for fall. Cozy fires, pumpkins, hot chocolate and christmas music. anyone else??

    I love Fall, it is my favorite season. I also have been longing for those warm Fall days and crisp Fall evenings. I could list all the things I love about Fall, but it goes on and on.

    June 28th, 2012 at 2:54 am

    fall is my absolute favorite season. i love the sights, smells, and memories that come with it.
    i met my husband in the fall and we got engaged in the fall and probably would have gotten married in the fall if we could have waited it out…but we couldn't wait a year!

    you have the best maternity style! love it!

    I am loving summer, but every few days I think about Fall and miss it. When I told my husband this he thought I was crazy HAHA! Glad to know I'm not the only one 🙂

  20. Ashton

    June 28th, 2012 at 3:10 am

    Yes! I am itching for Fall as well! My favorite season in Michigan. And my husband and I may have watched A Christmas Carol the other night. Not proud of that. 😉

    I'm excited for fall- with a little one it's so hard for me this summer. My 'normal' days of sun bathing are over and well fall would be much more cool for him to play outside!

    No! Fall is my absolute favorite, but here in the PNW it's not really summer until after the fourth of July. It's been rainy and about 50 or 60 degrees consistently so far this late spring and "summer".

    funny I totally feel the same way right now! regarding fall. its my favorite season, but I just love season change in general. love the coziness of the fall and the colors and flavors. glad to know Im not the only one who might be a little crazy, as we are just getting a hint of our spectacular seattle summer to come. fall needs to wait!

  25. Ashley

    June 28th, 2012 at 4:50 am

    Oh, yeah, I am so ready for fall and winter! I am just not a summer person–I don't like the heat or summer pastimes very much. I'm already planning fall and Christmas decorations and foods! 🙂

    June 28th, 2012 at 4:55 am

    it's winter where i live, which means that i am, of course, itching for summer! so i'm jealous of you and your cute outfit 🙂

    I'm happy with summer, but i love the smell and the light of the fall so , atumn is ok too.
    Yesterday one of my class members started singing jingle bells so i think a lot of people are ready for fall… or winter…
    And i can't wait to "meet" you newborn, too. I'm sure she's going to have Aidens amazing lips.

    In France it's not so warm and the moment (is it summer or not??!), so no, I don't think or dream about fall but about the summer time :)))
    You're so gorgeous woman!


    June 28th, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Hi Casey,

    It's winter here in Aus and I am DYING for it to be Spring/Summer again! Having said that, I know the feeling you're having too, have it every year! I will swap you the sprinkler for the hoodies and heaters if you like!! x

  35. Sally

    We are expecting our first little one, a girl, in the fall and it is making me so anxious and excited for fall to come! I can't wait to cozy up with my baby girl on a cool fall morning. Fall is my favorite season and I just know this little one is going to make it so much sweeter!

  37. Lottie

    June 28th, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    now you have said that i want it to be fall too–well actually i want it to be the ned of november because then i will hopefully have our little ones in my arms experiencing that unconditional love for the first time 🙂

    oh and i will be drinking gingerbread lattes because i will be allowed caffeine again.

    June 28th, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    oh my goodness oh my goodness fall is my favorite. People always talk of their love for summer, but my warm fuzzies come up when I think of fall-the beauty, the cool breezes, the campfires, the camping!, no humidity.. I could go on and on. Get here soon!

  39. Heather Sullivan

    June 28th, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    I'm sure that your craving for fall comes from this crazy hot heat we're all having, combined with being preggo and hot anyways and knowing that a newborn will be here in the fall!!

  40. Rachael

    June 28th, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    I am right there with you. I'm only 24 weeks but I am dying for my little one to be here. It's so exciting but I'm very impatient!
    Fall is my favorite too! I love the cooler weather… well cooler for Texas! ha!

    ALWAYS! My utmost favorite time of the year. So much so that i demanded to have our wedding then, and now its even more special to me. Love love love the colors, warm knits, spiced pumpkin yumminess smells, crock pot dinners, crisp air and the turning leaves. UGH, now i want it to be fall too!

    Your maternity style is SO CUTE! I grew up in Austin so I definitely understand the whole yearning for Fall thing. I now live in DC and am always desperately holding onto the warm months for as long as I can 🙂 God bless your precious family!

    Ha ha, no, I'm in no way anxious for fall to get here. I do like fall but I LOVE summer and I'm enjoying every degree of today's 100F temps. I haven't had enough hotdogs, ice cream, cookouts, and things yet! 🙂

    Your little Apple is such a lucky and loved little girl already. <3

    You must've read my mind. I'm itching for fall and all its' glory already. Wasn't the first day of summer technically last week or something? We are in the triple digits this week in Oklahoma and I bet you guys are too in Dallas. and LOVE the striped bag. Did you list the source or did I miss it?

    Did you read my mind?! I've been itching for fall ever since we hit the triple digits this week in Oklahoma. I have feeling you are getting some scorchers in Texas too. And LOVE the striped bag. Did you list the source or did I miss it?

    You make me want to have a newborn again. My first just turned 10 months old, and I think I've waited long enough. Time to get preggers. Also, I clicked on your "what we believe" link, and was super excited about where it took me. My husband and I have been listening to Matt Chandler sermons for a couple of years now. His series on Ecclesiastes that he did a few years ago pretty much changed my life. For reals.
