Tony and I went to an 80’s themed 30th b-day for a buddy the Saturday before Halloween and then stopped by the Challman Halloween party.  Bringing back the 80’s makes me wonder if some time baby girl will dress up in clothes from the decade she was born in.  Maybe I should keep a few things so she can giggle at what we wore in 2012.

We also enjoyed our standard Halloween activities – pumpkin carving, watching Hocus Pocus and handing out candy to the 25 or so trick or treaters we get each year.  Hope everyone had a great kick off to the holiday season last night.  Next stop – Turkey Day!

Sleep: Some nights good, some nights a little less

Best moment this week:  Registering for our baby classes

Happy or moody most of the time?  Happy and excited – I just can’t wait to see what she looks like and meet her

Weekly symptoms:  My back hurts every now and then but I just need to take it easy and realize that I’m pregnant so I don’t overdo it – monthly massages help too!

Looking forward to:  Putting the baseboards on in the nursery this weekend – one more step done!
