Srin took a few quick iSnaps of my 30 week belly among the leaves and trees. The red. Orange. And yellow. It feels like Fall here in the nation's capital. It's crisp and clear, with sunny skies but chilly temperatures. Pumpkins line the neighborhood with the occasional scarecrow, spider web, and ghost in the tree. Friends' are posting pictures of their kids in costumes, and the eerie excitement of Halloween is most definitely in the air.
I feel mostly ready for this baby to greet the world. With our baby shower last weekend, everything I absolutely need is in order with only a few to-do items left. I guess they call this nesting. Whatever it is, I like it. It's so cute to see the itty bitty newborn diapers. And tiny socks. Don't get me started on the cloth diapers. I just got my first batch yesterday from Nicki's Diapers and Cottonbabies. I'll be trying out Nicki's one size pockets and BumGenius's Freetime all in ones first. It's funny how overwhelmed I was even thinking of cloth diapering and now look at me. Talkin' all pockets and such. That's growth I tell you.
The baby shower was a blast with my family making the hike over East to celebrate the impending arrival of Baby Nagaraja. Friends and family. Everyone knows that's all I really need in life.
