taking stock

I am easing my way back into blogging with this Taking Stock post inspired by Pip at Meet me at Mike's.

Making : a baby for the next ~26 weeks, do I need to make other things too?
Cooking : butternut squash soup for dinner
Drinking : coffee after a three months break
Reading: books about Soviet Germany
Wanting: it to be Autumn forever
Looking: at a stack of empty boxes (we are moving! Details to come...)
Playing: Two Dots obsessively
Deciding: whether or not to find out Huckleberry's gender
Wishing: for a month between November 22nd and November 23rd
Enjoying: the sound of church bells at our new home
Wondering: how we will finish everything in time for our big move
Loving: August's little voice repeating our words (apple, sneezy, umayuma)
Considering: which furniture to keep and which to give away
Watching: college football (heal up, Watson!)
Hoping: Moonlight White (BM) is the right color for our new walls
Marvelling: at the Lord's faithfulness in making a way for our family
Needing: more boxes, always more boxes
Smelling: the paper mill down the road (good riddance!)
Wearing: maternity shorts and a sweatshirt everyday
Admiring: Brandon's willingness to paint, install, drywall and google what he doesn't know
Sorting: through baby clothes and toys
Buying: a hedgehog salt and pepper shaker because I need a touch of fall decor
Bookmarking: maternity clothes and postpartum healing herb links
Disliking: the limitations of pregnancy "don't paint, don't horseback ride, don't lift that"
Opening: the windows
Feeling: second trimester energy boost (that I did not have with August)
Snacking: on pumpkin spice m&ms (for me) and walnuts (for Huckleberry)
Coveting: naptime
Anticipating: a girls mountain weekend in 2 weeks!
