Gabby and Aunt Beth found this cute cute Halloween sweater at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago and today Emma wore it for the first time. She is so stinking adorable I just can’t take it! We went to the health dept earlier for our H1N1 vaccines and everyone kept commenting on how cute she was and how much they just loved the sweater. So thank you Gabby & Aunt Beth!
Tonight we decided to carve one of our pumpkins and then Emma got to paint her little pumpkin. Emma had so much fun! She helped her daddy get the “junk” out of the pumpkin and it was funny b/c she kept calling it “junk” after George did. Mommy got to sit on the sidelines and take pictures and videotape Emma’s first pumpkin carving experience.
Happy to be helping daddy!
Scooping the junk out
Painting her little pumpkin!
The family pumpkin…I think it turned out rather cute!
Thanks to Barney for keeping Emma occupied for a minute so I can post a few pics and I really need to clean the kitchen!
Emma LOVES to draw and is getting really good at some of her letters. So this morning we were writing and first she wrote “Mom” while I wasn’t looking and then we finished the “m” and “y” below for mommy. I think she is so talented considering she’s only 2.5!
Remember I said that George bought me 2 chocolate dipped Oreos? Well I had one and Emma had the other and she was cracking me up with her chocolately mouth. Gross, huh?
A few days ago I was cleaning our bathrooms and my sweet dear friend Tracy brought a huge pick me up to the house in honor of my cleaning. She went to Gigi’s cupcakes and brought us 3 cupcakes! This was Emma’s Princess cupcake and it was so yummy. I had to taste it first of course.
Just a few pics and more to come later!
Yesterday I had my 31 wk appointment. After 2 hours 15 minutes Emma and I were finally out of there! I hate it when it takes that long but at least Emma was very well behaved.
Everything looked great. Blood pressure was good at 142/84 (I believe), no protein in urine, heartbeat was 143 and now I need to call and get registered at the hospital. I also asked him about when to schedule the actual c-section date even though it’s at 38 weeks. After a few minutes we never actually set the date in stone. He doesn’t seem so sure that I’ll make it to 38 wks. It was rather funny talking about it so I guess we’ll wait till it gets a little closer and then set the date in stone. Now I go back in 2 weeks on November 9th! The weeks are just flying by and I think about it nonstop. I’m so anxious and excited to meet baby Hudson!
Nothing much to report these past several days. Yesterday since it was almost 5pm when I left the dr, we met George at Rosie’s for dinner. After sitting at the booth for a few minutes I noticed a Westin bag! You see where this is going right? I could get massages 24 hours a day and be happy. That’s what I always ask for at Christmas/birthday and George is really good about treating me. Well over the weekend I commented to him that I haven’t had a prenatal massage yet and so he went yesterday and got me a prenatal massage to the Westin! Very excited! I’m thinking I might schedule it for this weekend. Oh and he also had me a big chocolate dipped apple from the Chocolate Crocodile and 2 chocolate dipped Oreos b/c those are two things that I love from that store. What a great husband I have!
Well Emma is wanting me to play right now but maybe I’ll post some new pics later today or tomorrow. Happy rainy cold Tuesday!
I took several pictures today documenting our day and here are just a couple…
Emma was mad at George for using “mommy’s” camera so she showed off her pouty face really well!
Helping mommy make scrambled eggs this morning. We make eggs a lot!
This afternoon we headed out to Bridgestreet for a bit and this was right before we left. Such a stinker!
Yes, boys and girls, that is my sweet little Hudson all snuggled in my belly. Today we had our 4D ultrasound and even though he didn’t cooperate at all, it was so incredibly wonderful to just see him and know that he’s okay and growing like a weed! He’s estimated to be 3 lbs 11 oz and is measuring 31 wks which is good. Everything looked just perfect but he kept wanting to keep his hand covering his entire face which left us with 1 good face shot. I was a little disappointed b/c I paid $150 for this u/s but I still got to see him for 1.5 hours so I’m a happy mommy. The ultrasound tech felt so bad b/c we couldn’t get any good shots and she said when Dr. Cimino has me do another regular u/s to remind her and she would do her best to get some more 4D pics. So there’s my little Hudson man and I’m loving his chubby little cheeks. I can’t wait to pinch them when he comes out!
Yesterday Emma was having fun playing dress up and she wanted me to take a picture of her with her snow gear on! She was actually asking me to take her picture.
Funny face…look how skinny she is! I swear I feed her.
These days she is all about wearing her slippers around the house but I really need to buy her a new pair b/c those pink ones are too small. She was wearing them outside today too and I noticed they were coming apart. The girl loves her slippers!
And after her bath last night I told her that Gabby had bought her these pj’s several months ago and luckily she wore them all night. I wasn’t sure how she would do with a one piece but she did great. I thought it would keep her warm all night. She was very proud of her new pj’s!
In other news I am in my 30th week!! It is flying by. Tomorrow I am going to get a 4D ultrasound done of my little man and I can’t wait to see his cute little face. This was kind of a last minute thing but I’m so excited that I’m doing it. I will definitely share pics tomorrow evening.
Also, one of my dear friends from college is coming to Huntsville tomorrow to visit Emma and me and we plan on going to lunch after my appointment and then hanging out at the house for awhile. We don’t get to see each other very often anymore so I’m excited that she’s driving down for a visit!
I’ll update tomorrow!
Aunt Beth gave Emma a beautiful pink tutu today and Emma has had so much fun wearing it around the house. Or should I say dancing around the house! We put her black leotard on with it (Aunt Beth got her earlier this year) and she loves it too. Enjoy!
Today Aunt Beth, Graham, and Isaac came down for a visit and we took the kiddos to Tates Farm! We took Emma last year and it was so much fun but it was really fun having all three kids there. As you can tell from the pictures it was super duper cold! I think it was in the low 40s and we felt it. The wind was crazy and we kept the kids bundled up the whole time but I sure did have a great time. Then we came home and made chili and George has been making pumpkin pies from scratch all night long. He got a pumpkin from the farm to use and I’ll let you know how it turns out. Enjoy the pictures!
We arrived at the farm and mommy realized just how cold it was. It felt like the artic!
Graham, Isaac, Aunt Beth, and some other lady watching people get lost in the corn maze.

Emma loves her swings!
I love the corn train! All 3 kids really enjoyed it. Graham looks super cute here…

And Miss Emma Bemma!
Graham loved the corn maze so much he had to go through twice!
Emma chillaxin with the pumpkins while the boys picked theirs out.
Graham loves his Emma!
We are officially frozen! It’s time to take our pumpkins and run! We had a blast!
to be a big sister! Emma has a couple of big sister shirts and so we had to put one on yesterday before we went outside. She looked like such a big girl with it on. Not too much longer until she gets to wear it to the hospital-only 8 more weeks or less!
