Currently | September

Oh September, how I love you. Gorgeous blue skies, sunny days with a coolness to the air, autumn’s arrival, and so many wonderful things. I’m happy to welcome this month as well as quite a few exciting things that go along with it – Family visits, Vacation, 2nd Trimester (!!!!!!!), a wedding, and so many other wonderful little things. It’s going to be a good month, that’s for sure. Per the norm, I am linking up with a great group of ladies for this month’s Currently post!

READING| I’ve been reading, well maybe more like skimming, pregnancy books & blogs. I’ve got Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth, The Birth Partner, & Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way all stacked up in my bedroom. I’ve always loved reading about birth and pregnancy, but actually experiencing it for myself is even better! I’m open to any suggestions for your favorite pregnancy, birth or motherhood books that I should add to my stack.

TRYING | To prep for vacation! We leave in a little over a week for a little beach get away followed by our dear friends’ wedding. I’m typically a major planner, but guys I haven’t even made my first draft of a packing list! What am I thinking?! Ha! I need to start planning because we only have this weekend then a few nights next week to prepare.

HOPING | That yesterday was the last 90 degree day Ohio will see until, oh I dunno, June 2017? (Weird thought, I’ll have a 2 month old baby when June arrives!!!) I love Fall and I would hate to see it skipped over. I’m all for the warm temps on vacation in SC later this month, but Ohio should really be done with 90 degree weather, don’t you think?

DECORATING | Our apartment. We still have quite a bit of unpacking and settling in to do here, but slowly we are getting things done. With first trimester exhaustion, I had a pretty hard time finding the energy and motivation to unpack boxes in my free time. Also, with fall arriving I’m ready to get out my fall decor and start decorating for my favorite time of year! Do you have any favorite fall decorations?

TO-DO LISTING | Everything! But specifically post-move to-do’s and pre-baby to-do’s. We still have quite a few things we need to finish doing now that we have moved like finalize all address changes (I know, I know, should have been done ages ago), get Ohio plates on my car, unpack, order new checks, etc. I’m also already starting on a pre-baby to-do list. It’s amazing how quickly time can go and knowing we are only a little over 6 months away, I know I need to get organized and start planning ahead. Do you have any little known tips for things to get done before baby comes? I’d love some ideas.

Thanks so much to Anne over at In Residence and Beth at The Beth Next Door for hosting such a lovely link-up!

  1. I really liked reading Hypnobirthing by Marie Mongan and Birthing from Within by Pam Englund when I was pregnant with my son, they both had great techniques that really helped during delivery! I love that you are a doula in training, we had a doula and she was amazing! I would love to become one someday too, I’m just waiting for my son to get a little older 🙂
