Lots of roundness in this picture. I told Heather we should paint our stomachs like jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.
This is me and my friend, Heather. Heather and I have a lot in common. We're both from Idaho Falls, both served missions, both have a little girl, we live in the same neighborhood, and our hubbies go to the same school. We're both on the taller side (Heather's got me by three inches, though) and we're both about the same age . . . gestational age, too. Our due dates are only about a week apart. We also have the same doctor, so we book our appointments at the same time and drive together. The doctor and the nurses there think it's pretty funny.
Here's Sophie and Hallie, Heather's little girl. Hallie's almost exactly a year older than Soph. It's fun to watch the things she says and does because that will be my little girl in a year.
We picked out three big pumpkins and one small one. I decided that I'm going to cook a couple of them down and freeze it for baking. I've never used fresh pumpkin before. I've also never made a pie from scratch before. (Yes, grandma, it's true. Sorry if that's disappointing.) I think I'll whip one up, while I still have time to be ambitious. And maybe eat it all myself, while I'm still OK with looking a bit pudgy. (FYI, I can totally afford the calories. I weigh 20 lbs less than I did during month 8 of my last pregnancy. Go me.)
