Fall Has Arrived
It doesnt much look like Fall in Arizona but we are feeling the weather change slowly and sometimes abruptly. This weekend we went to 3 little fall festivals, one each night. Lola was in heaven because she loves to go go go. She walks around asking to get into her car seat so she can just be going I guess.

This year Lola is a kitty cat because every time she sees a cat she gets so excited. She will chase it or point at it in a book saying, "meow, meow, meow." And boy does she have a good "meow."

She already wiped off part of her nose by the time I took the photo but she would barely let me put any face paint on to begin with.

Here are the photos from a carnival that a church put on in our town

Pony Ride

Riding the with her big cousin Gabrielle

As we walked by this she went nuts say, " boat, boat, boat." We thought she would be afraid to go in by herself but was ready to jump into the water and thought it was so fun.

Bouncy Ball, she was cracking up

This little petting zoo is what I thought she would love, but I think she actually was a little board.
Side, Side
This is what Lola says when she wants to go outside. That along with shoes and hat. It is her most favorite thing, she could sit in a pile of dirt and be happy as long as she is outside. So since we dont have much to do outside here is how we beat the heat with Lola.

Lolas First Hair Cut

Doesnt look like much of a difference huh, well it was. She was so wonderful the whole time too. She just sat on Justins lap and looked at herself in the mirror, I was prepared for the worst. I brought every comforting thing imaginable like her binky and her bear and her blanket. Anyhow it was a good experience and she looked 'pretty' in Lolas words.

Baby & Momma Update
36 weeks and 2 days (10.23.08)
So I was cleared from bedrest a while ago, the placenta moved up!!!!
I had an ultra sound the day this picture was taked because now they are concerned about the size of the baby, they say he is big. He measures 2 weeks and 3 days ahead of schedule. Somewhere between 7 1/4 and 9 1/4 pounds. I dont know how much I believe it though, I have heard so many stories when they tell the mom the baby is huge and then they aren't at all. We will figure out what we are doing soon, as far as a possible induction or whatever because my next appointment is on thursday, the 30th. A thought that lingers in the back of my mind is the size my husband was at birth, 10 1/2 pounds --- HUGE!! I just really dont want that. As of tomorrow morning I have exactly 3 weeks to my due date, November 18th. I had lola 2 weeks before her due date so I am praying this one will be the same. My bags are packed and all ready to go!!
